Smoothie and Kitten Lovin’!
After my chocolate chip cookie indulgence last night, mah bellay was screaming for something fresh and healthy this morning.
[side note: just as I wrote fresh and healthy, the pizza delivery guy walked into our office. We have "Pizza Fridays" which for me is usually a salad with some random toppings that I've scavenged. ]
[other side note: did, in fact, have a small piece of pizza, with a heaping pile of greens on the side, and an Ito En Green Jasmine Tea ]
Not to mention, I woke up with a sore throat from (fingers crossed) allergies, so I didn’t want to irritate it with anything scratchy like granola.
So I whipped up my go-to smoothie:
- 1 c frozen mixed berries
- 1/2 c nonfat greek yogurt
- 1 big handful of spinach
- 1 splash skim milk
- *agave nectar optional to sweeten.
Mixed that all together and came up with this pretty thang…
Which I sipped on while playing with this other pretty thang!
This is our kitten, Penny! She was an absolute devil kitty when I was living in San Francisco for some reason. I think it had something to do with the fact that one of my old roommates would torment her and play wrestle with her and knock her around a lot
But ever since I moved to NY, she has been an absolute angel! Well, as angelic as a cat can be. Everyone knows they’re all pretty weird and bitchy.
I’m going stir crazy today! Its 85 degrees outside, and I’m daydreaming about the 3 day weekend. On my agenda?
- rollerblading with Kman
- getting a long run in one day
- go to Brownstone Diner & Pancake Factory (featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives!)
- procure Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee…
- sip said iced coffee while LYING OUT AT THE POOL!
That’s really the one and only thing I want to do this weekend. The rooftop pool at our apartment building opens up, and I have every intention of being the very first person in the water tomorrow morning at 10:00AM sharp…and getting my (healthy! sunscreen, people, lots of sunscreen ) tan on this weekend.
What are your plans for Memorial Day weekend?
