If you like Piña Colada’s, and Getting Caught in the Rain

Okay, so I didn’t have any pina colada’s today but unfortunately I did get caught in a monsoon! I decided to go for a short run this afternoon and did 2 easy miles and actually ended up walking the last .2 or so. Although, I did have to sprint back home because of the weather. Once I got home I only had one thing on my mind, and that was a smoothie. I whipped out my blender and decided to make something a little different than usual. I only have a chocolate protein powder right now so all my smoothies have been chocolate, which was fine with me today. Into the blender went :

5 ice cubes
3/4 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 Tablespoon unsweet cocoa powder
1 frozen banana
2 teaspoon dried cherries
2 teaspoon cherry preserves
enough unsweet vanilla almond milk
tsp. xanthan gum

May not look too great, but it tasted good. It was more chocolate-y than cherry so you can use a little more cherry! But the combo was really good and creamy.

 

 

 

 

 

Afterwards I sat around like a lazy bum got a few things done around the house and then decided that I wanted to do a little more of a workout. I usually go to the gym later on Tuesday’s so I met my mom over at LA Fitness. I took two workouts one from Courtney and one from Fitnessista. I really don’t know why, but I ended up mixing the two workouts together and ended up with my own little spin. Honestly, it was really random and all over the place but it worked Smile

I ended up covering 5.30 miles with this workout. My legs actually felt heavy today but I was walking really fast and it didn’t feel too fast which was weird. On the other hand, it was a great treadmill workout and made time fly by! Love when that happens. Now I’m on #Fitblog which is hosted by Katelyn, and then I’m going to prep coffee for the morning and read The Help before getting to bed! I have a great recipe to share tomorrow, so stay tuned Smile

 

Question:

Do you feel like you have to switch it up on the treadmill?

Do you like hills or sprints better?

Like or dislike the rain?
