Wouldn't you just love to live here?! I took this on my way to class yesterday and "blahh" pretty much sums it up. Why is it always overcast during the cold months? All I wanted to do was eat banana pancakes, soup and grilled cheese and be wrapped in a fleece blanket with my dinosaur slippers. I didn't do any of those things :(
I did get to wear my new shoes though!
I bought them for myself as an early Christmas present (ssshh!!) and they came in the mail yesterday. I haven't taken them off since, they are so comfortable. I know they're not the best shoes for lifting, but I couldn't resist.
..But even new shoe excitement couldn't get me going yesterday morning. I woke up exhausted and sore. I'm usually fully pepped and ready to go 15 minutes after getting up, but my pep never kicked in. I dragged myself to the gym for an upper body workout before class regardless because once I start moving around I usually feel better. Then I feel 3,000 times better when I'm done. Yesterday...didn't happen.
I actually sat on the weight bench and considered going back home or just walking on the treadmill instead. I couldn't lift all the weight I normally do and I didn't even make it through my whole routine because I dragged so much ass and didn't have time to finish. It was rough. I pushed through and was glad to get back home to have this:
You my go hard, but you aren't hard until you drink pink protein shakes out of a Cinderella glass :)
Okay, so it looks like one of those fake vomit toys, but I promise it was juicy and delicious! I had it with spinach, red peppers, green beans and a mashed sweet tater.
I made these on Monday. They're sweet potato balls (sweet potato, black beans and salsa mashed up and rolled in ground flaxseed). I thought they were delicous, but Steveo, my taste tester said they were bland =\ Oh well, more for me!
to put on this...
I love new jeep goodies :)
