I made another smoothie today.
And I’m calling it the Green Monkey. Wanna guess why?
Yeah, I know… it’s pretty obvious.
Because it’s green. And it has bananas.
Wow, I’m a creative genius, huh?
The Green Monkey
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup 1% milk
- 1/2 tbsp peanut butter
- 1/2 tsp cocoa powder
- handful spinach
- several ice cubes
I think I liked this one better than yesterday’s because of the addition of the cocoa powder.
I think it’s really funny that the cocoa powder is “Best Life” approved. I mean, is that really the reason you’re going to buy cocoa powder? Because Bob Greene approved it?
Personally, I buy it to make cake. And brownies.
The smoothie was just an added bonus.
This would also have been good with some chocolate protein powder, but we have run out.
I’d say Brandon used about 95% of that container and I used the rest.
But that’s ok. He can keep using the protein powder since he has way bigger muscles than I do! And then I can just sit back and admire my hubby with the hot-bod.
After enjoying that smoothie, I also made myself this:
One of my favorite bowls of oatmeal.
I’ve mentioned it before, but as a reminder:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- dash cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- spoonful of brown sugar
- diced strawberries
After cooking in the microwave for a little under 2 minutes, I top it with chopped walnuts.
I was really hungry after running 4 miles and walking another mile at the gym. On the treadmill. Which I do not enjoy. Bleck. I don’t know why, but I just really dislike running on the treadmill. And it didn’t help that while I was running at a measly 5.6 mph, the girl next to me was running at 8.0.
I call her the “machine.” She never stops. I guess I sound a little jealous, huh?
I need to remind myself that I just started running a couple of months ago. I can’t expect myself to all of a sudden be a super-star athlete, right??
On to more interesting news. Big Brother.
You knew it was coming!
(Time to leave if you don’t want spoilers!)
I just have a few thoughts about last night’s episode:
1. I LOVE that Jordan was honest with Rachel about her behavior and the things she says to other people. Good for Jordan for having the courage to say something.
2. I finally figured out who Cassi looks like. Olivia Wilde! Do you agree?
3. Wow, Rachel wins Head of Household again. The poor “newbies” just don’t stand a chance, do they? Who do you think she’ll put up? I’m thinking Adam and Dominic…
Questions for ya…
What are your thoughts on last night’s episode?
Do you ever feel discouraged when you see someone else running faster, lifting heavier, etc at the gym?
Feel free to leave any other comments/thoughts as well!!! I love to hear them!
