Did anyone else feel like this, this morning? Because I sure did.
I was so spent from the weekend that I slept in a little bit. When I woke up and came downstairs the blender was already out from Amy, and it made me crave a smoothie bad. So, I got to work on my favorite smoothie ever: a Peanut Butter, chocolate, banana, smoothie!
How could you not like something that includes: peanut butter, banana, and chocolate?
- 1 cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of Natural Peanut Butter
- 1 full banana
- 1 scoop of Vanilla Whey Protein Power (we were out of my favorite kind)
- 1 scoop of Cocoa powder (to add the chocolatey taste!)
I put it all in the blender, added a handful of ice, and blended away.
Btw- I used Smuckers Natural Peanut Butter, because most other peanut butters include hydrogenated oil (which is trans fat!). I use this whenever I put peanut butter in smoothies, on sandwiches, or english muffins, etc. But, of course I still eat the other kind when it’s included in Reese’s cups and all other store bought peanut butter treats.
I had to use my Dad’s Peanuts cup for the smoothie, he is obsessed. Every year for Christmas we have an entire tree dedicated to just Snoopy ornaments.
After I finished my smoothie, I went out to Michaels and Fleet Feet with my friend Angel. I got 12 scrap book pages because they were on sale 6 for 1, a stamp, ink, and a new sweaty band headband. I told you guys I had fallen in love with them :).
When I got home from shopping my new headband motivated me to go to the gym :). Just kidding, but I was super excited to wear it. I ran a mile on the tread mill and then completed this cardio circuit workout five times:
- 30 jumping jacks
- 15 pushups
- 10 jump squats
- 20 burpees
After I finished the circuits, I did a few weight workouts, an arm machine, some abs, and stretched before heading home.
Hope your Monday is going well!
