I was so hungry after my 8-miler with the girls. But, I made the mistake of crawling back into bed after I had changed - it was SO hard not to take a nap. I got up, made breakfast, and got started on my crazy day.
I'm not a spider fan, but I thought this tiny spiderweb in the grass was awesome. I'm honestly not entirely sure how I even saw it...
A girlfriend posted these on her IG - I need them! I can't keep anything alive.
I wanted a different flavor or protein (I only have chocolate at home), so I grabbed this. It's the Garden of Life brand and it's delicious! Ignore my crafting mess behind the blender - I was making some stuff for our wedding. I can't wait to share everything with you guys!
This smoothie was probably one of my favorites. Here's the recipe:
~Handful of spinach
~1/2 coconut milk
~T MCT Oil
~Scoop of collagen
~Scoop of Garden of Life Plant-Based Vanilla Protein
~T PB Fit
~Handful of ice
Blend & enjoy!! Top with whatever you like - mine is topped with chia seeds, flaxseeds, & dry oats.
After lunch, I mowed our yard. We don't want the grass to be crazy when we get home from Colorado. I love a freshly mowed yard, and I also kind of like mowing. Anyone else like mowing? When I was younger, my Dad always had me mow the acreage we lived on - I got to use a zero-turn radius riding mower. I always had a blast!
It's hard to tell, and I got some weird pictures trying to show you, but I was drenched after mowing. It didn't feel that hot out, but it must've been warmer than I thought.
Then it was snack time. If you like hummus, seriously try this flavor. I am OBSESSED.
I needed some chocolate, too. Jake's parents gave this to us in a huge basket of goodies Monday night - you guys are the best!
Last minute, I booked 30 minute massages for us - I was going to surprise Jake with his, but since this week is so crazy, I had to tell him about it last night. BUT, I went to mine yesterday afternoon. It was incredible. Also, I love Acacia's relaxation room. I think I could live in it.
Dinner was sesame chicken with leftovers.
Here's a wedding preview!! We will have some of these flowers with us on Saturday.
I sipped on some dandelion tea while I worked on some computer stuff after dinner.
Jake and I did some packing, then sat on our driveway and had drinks/dessert last night.
Another day, another creepy mask! I've been breaking out really bad - stress, girl stuff, etc., so I'm trying to do anything I can to help! I love these masks. I also love how creepy they make me look - I can't smile in them or they get all lopsided.
Kayla and I met to lift at the Y today. I had planned on doing the elliptical after, but ended up sitting in the sauna for 20 minutes. I went in fully clothed...I don't recommend that.
Yes. I was so excited to get home from the gym to eat this.
I'm off to get some more stuff done - we leave tomorrow afternoon!!! Jake and I are having a celebratory dinner tonight at one of our favorite places - before we were dating, Jake used to call me after he worked out and ask if I wanted to meet at this place for dinner/drinks. Any guesses? ; )
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
