Good evening everyone!
Today was brought to you by the letter “S”!
Ok, I know, I am spending way too much time hanging out with elementary school kids. Today was no exception; the longest early-release day (half day) of my life spent with a crazy group of 5th graders. Thankfully I was not left alone, floundering with them. I was lucky enough to have a student teacher in the class who has been there everyday since the start. I told her that she was definitely running the show! After four hours, my head was throbbing and I felt like I ran a marathon (ok…maybe not a marathon, but physical exhaustion was definitely a part of it)!
Post work I decided to battle the fatigue and hit the gym. It wasn’t my best showing there but not my worst either. I sometimes find myself expecting huge gym sessions everytime I go, similar to when I used to be work-out obsessed. I have to remind myself that every bit counts and that its the consistency, not the insane intesity, that keeps me heatlhy and balanced 🙂
Post-gym all I wanted was something cool and refreshing…
1 small banana
3/4 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup light Silk
1 heaping T Brown Rice Protein
1 small spoonful Almond Butter
Directions: Mix it up baby!
This was a great recovery drink but also reminded me that I need to find a soy milk alternative. I’m okay with it in small doses (a splash on my oats or in my tea) but I think any more than that is just too much. I am going to try out almond milk again and see how it goes. Anyone else feel this way about soy milk? Do you like almond/rice/hemp milk better?
So on my way to the gym it started pouring rain (really, its been raining for like 4 days now) but after the gym there was finally sunshine!
After my substitute teaching, smoothie, and sunshine, there was nothing left but an evening of sushi with my love 🙂 I wish I could show you an awesome sushi picture, but I really struggle with thinking about taking pictures of food before devouring it 🙂
So I will leave you with these pictures and a promise of more this weekend, including some apple picking photos! It’s supposed to be a beautiful long weekend and I could not be more excited for it!
Question: any plans for the long weekend? What’s your favorite weekend activity?
Happy weekending to you all!
lots of love,
