Don't judge me or anything, but I'm currently sitting on an ice pack. I'm simply trying to cool off a large bit, while it's 95* outside, and we're on the 3rd floor of our apartment with that blazing sun facing us and trying its best to make us feel slightly lethargic an extremely uncomfortable. Silly sun, it thinks it can ruin our happy weekend. It fails, for sure.
1/2 cup rice milk, 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 2 handfuls spinach, 3/4 cup oats, ice, frozen banana
Topped with grapes! It's been a while since we've had these on hand, and I'm glad we bought them. Also atop the green divine bowl: wheat germ, chia seeds, raisins, almonds, some kashi golean crunch!
full for: 4 hours. insaaaneee!
Beets + Oranges:
Simply diced beets, diced orange slices, and unsalted peanuts. This combo is amazing, and I have my lovely hubby and his Mexican Christmas-time recipe to thank for bringing it into me life!
A Pizza Pie:
his half loves cheese + Whole Foods chicken sausage.
mine super loves zucchini, summer squash, garbanzos
I actually attempted hummus, and it didn't blend to smooth perfection (help me?), so I crumbled some of it atop my slices, and it kinda looked like ground turkey which made me giggle a bit.
homemade whole wheat crust, pasta sauce, pineapple, beet leaves, red pepper, serrano chili, zucchini, summer squash, garbanzo shin-dig. So stinkin' good, and worth the heat wave that attacked us from the oven.
Currently browsing: Gone Raw - in the hopes of finding some cold and chocolate raw desserts to bring our internal body temps down on this jolly sunny Sunday evening.
With my Runners Knee: I have decided to give it completely to God, and forget about it joyfully. I am going to enjoy the opportunity I have to do every other form of cardio + strength training known to man (and have fun of course!) and not sulk in the pain of my knee, or the lack of mileage on the roads.
No longer me:
And hey, even though my plan was to run a marathon in a couple years, maybe that's not God's plan for me. I could be a grumpy toad about it, but I'm really okay with that. His plans are so much bigger than our own. I love trusting in that truth, it's huge! So.. I'm happy, and thankful. Jesus is Amazing + life is good, running 5 days a week or not. :)
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
