Last night finished off with.  .. cake – of course cake won!

It was delicious.

Our 8am run was a fail. . . mostly because overnight rain dropped the temps and it was raining and 63 degrees when we woke up this morning. We decided to put off our run until later in the afternoon.

Because of the ‘colder’ temps, I decided to go for a hot caramel skim latte this morning.

My morning snack was a juicy peach – love summer stone fruits!

I had a meeting at the YMCA at 1pm, so I decided to hit up the Express Body Sculpt from 12:15-12:45.

I was styling with my pink sparkly bic band!

It was a good class. . . we did 2 circuits. The first was legs – mostly hamstrings and gluts. The second was core work with pushups.

I had another 10 minutes to kill, so I did about 10 minutes on the elliptical.

My meeting was to discuss what I wanted to teach for the fall session. It looks like I will be teaching a kettlebell class! I think it should be a lot of fun. I really like using kettlebells and think they are a really good workout.

Lunch was a repeat of dinner last night: steak salads! They were just as delicious as last night.

Abby was being extra cute during lunch.

I finished off lunch with some cookie dough that Scott put aside for me when he made cookies on Sunday night. I love that he puts some aside for me to enjoy later!

Scott and I went running about 5:30. It was 73 degrees and sunny out. I thought with the rain, the humidity would be less, but I was totally wrong! It was still pretty hot and humid out. . . not as bad as yesterday but still ended with dripping sweat and Abby searching out shaded trees to take some breaks. But we survived 5 miles!

After a cold shower.  . . smoothies for dinner. And because I promised, I added spinach tonight! Fresh spinach from this weeks CSA!

(excuse the wet hair from my recent shower!)

And he can’t even taste it. Winking smile

I couldn’t either! And it made me feel extra healthy to be eating fruit and veggies together.

Topped with chia seeds and frosted cheerios <—extra yummy!

So happy I finally tried it. Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to do it! And promised me that you couldn’t taste it.

On tap for tonight: fresh watermelon slices and the movie: Unstoppable with Denzel Washington.

Have a great night!

Have you ever tried spinach in your smoothies or any other creative way?

  1. I just ordered two new BIC bands 🙂 I was going to obviously pick the pink sparkle, but I like the skinny minnie smallest size they make and it doesn’t come in pink sparkle! So I ended up getting the tiny size in teal sparkle and plain pink! Love them, but I think I wore my old black sparkle so much it’s starting to stretch out!

  2. Hehe I love sneaking veg into my boyfriend’s meals and then when he’s finished I say ‘guess what was in that?’ 🙂

    THAT CAKE. omg. I need some now! There are so many things that I love about this post. Green Monster. Delish. I never knew what I was missing out on! I was also totally leary about the spinach, but you can’t even taste it!

    P.S. So glad that you found my blog! And THANK YOU for your comments! Now I can stalk you in return!
