Not A Green One
Thank you all for your thoughts on running, yesterday! All your motivational stories and wisdom boosted my confidence and made me feel so happy. As ridiculous as it sounds, I am so grateful to have you all in my life. I feel like we are all best friends!
I felt so old fashioned as I put it in, since it’s a video not DVD. My how times have changed.
I was dripping with sweat when the work out was over.
The word smoothie grosses me out lately, don’t ask. Breakfast was a
[2 handfuls organic baby spinach; 1 sliced banana, frozen; 1 scoop EAS 100% Whey Chocolate Protein Powder; cocoa powder (I didn’t measure. Maybe 1-2 tsp.?); 1 cup unsweetened almond milk; 5 ice cubes]
Probably one of the most delicious green monsters I’ve ever had. And it was huge. Yes, I drank it all.
Branden wanted a fruit smoothie after he saw me drinking mine. But he said he didn’t want a green one! 🙂
I tend to fall into food ruts. So it’s no surprise that lunch was a complete replica of yesterday’s tuna sandwich.
Yum. Tuna + hummus + spinach on toasty bread. What more do you need in life?
I have horrible acne. You wouldn’t know it by looking at pictures of me, I always cover up with make up. But I realize that when I eat better, my skin clears.
I’ve been avoiding dairy I think it’s really bad for my skin. The only thing I miss is Greek yogurt! I hate cow’s milk, I can’t even drink it straight, so that’s not a problem. But I have found a new love for unsweetened almond milk. I love the taste of it!
I also need to be better at eating 100% sugar free. I used to do really good, but lately I’ve been slacking and only eating maybe 65% sugar free. Sugar flares up my acne real bad.
I also want to see if gluten is causing me problems. It’s just hard for me to give up bread! 🙂
Tomorrow I’m doing week 4 of Couch To 5k with three of my friends. We’ve been getting together every Saturday morning for the last few weeks to run.
Right after we do that, there’s a youth basketball tournament at the church that I am very excited about! I love basketball!
Q. Do you find certain foods are better/worse for your skin than others?
Q. What sports do you play with your friends?
