So I missed having my smoothies in the morning and have been wanting to go back to them but I wanted to make sure I was giving myself as much nutrition as possible.. okay well not so much that they don’t taste very good. So, in an effort to do just that, i started making my smoothies with carrot juice.
I was REALLY nervous about this before hand because my mom used to “juice” all of the time and the carrot juice turned me off if it wasn’t combined with apple juice too but hey I care about my eye sight haha so I want to drink some carrot juice!
I added in carrot juice, V8 splash, frozen strawberries, frozen bananas, this fiber stuff I put in, a 1/2 cup of non-fat yogurt and I hit BLEND!
It was very orange.
But fit in my cup perfectly and was such a healthy treat on the way to work!
So as if Saturday wasn’t busy enough we made Sunday and Monday even busier! We started off our Sunday morning by sleeping in way more than usual! It was really great to me able to sleep past 8am which is when I have been waking up on the previous weekends. I think we ended up sleeping in past 10am… which felt GREAT! We pretty much have been making this a movie weekend so we have been staying up pretty late. Last night we watched Rain Man which I had seen before but Tim never had! I couldn’t even believe he had never seen it and I often make weird jokes and references to the movie so it was nice that he could finally understand me!
For breakfast I decided on a smoothie bowl. We were out of eggs so I needed to “eat” something but I couldn’t figure out what I wanted so this was a nice option. It was a delicious smoothie that I would usually put in a glass but instead I pout in a bowl to eat. Something about having to lift the spoon into your mouth makes it more filling?? Who knows if that makes sense- I think it is all just psychological. So in my smoothie I enjoyed ½ cup of fat free plain yogurt, frozen strawberries, frozen bananas, spinach, protein powder, flax seed, and milk. Chop and spin and tada there it is!
After the smoothie enjoyment Tim and I got ready to head out to Amanda’s families pig roast. Paul and Amanda always seem to have fun activities to go to and I am a big fan of food so needless to say this was right up my alley! I was sort of looking forward to seeing a big huge pig roasting away but they already had that sucker cut up and waiting to be served so unfortunately no piggy with an apple in his mouth. Bummer right? Ha
FOOD COMA was all I thought of when I saw the massive spread they had going on! Everything from the pig to pasta salads to this nutty butter bar dessert to cookies back to baked beans and BBQ sauce. Seriously, anything you wanted they had! I decided on some pig w/ the delicious BBQ sauce, 1 piece of corn on the cob, a small helping of pasta salad, and some fruit. I didn’t actually put any desserts on my plate in hopes of staying away from them but still managed to get Tim to share a few bites of his with me! No idea what it exactly was or the recipe for it but that peanut butter banana nutty butter bar dessert or whatever it is called was sooo good. Tim was practically drooling all over himself as he ate that!
We played corn hole for a bit and we lost. Amanda and her cousin kicked out butts but hey we still had fun (it’s like the lottery you know… odds are you’ll have fun) and then I watched Tim and Paul majorly lose in another game of corn hole. So major they actually have 0 points at the end of the game. But they were good sports about it… see they still look happy?
On our way home we saw this totally inappropriate but hilarious stop sign. Apparently those kids that live out in the country don’t have much to do…?
After the pig roast we went home and fell asleep on the couch… did I mention food coma? Then we woke up to head out to fireworks at Fairlawn Country Club with Tim’s grandparents, dad, and Karla. Fairlawn does such an amazing job with fireworks so even though I am not a die hard fireworks fan it is still awesome to go watch. We didn’t attend the “big” event but had dinner at the halfway house instead which was AWESOME. Apparently they have delicious burgers there which I had no idea but I ordered one and was not at all disappointed. I stayed away from the regular bun and made myself a lettuce bun instead and topped off the burger with tomato, pickle, and onion. Tim’s dad shared some fries with me too- which were equally tasty! Then the magical fireworks came and they were just beautiful!
Before we left Tim ordered a bite of banana cream pie which I am happy to say I only took 2 bites of (don’t ask me how big that second bite was). Regardless I find it much easier to not eat desserts when they are on someone else plate. That way it is like readily available if I want to taste it but my eyes don’t tell me to keep going because it is on my plate staring at me!
We made out way home to watch ANOTHER old school movie and chose The Graduate this time which I had never seen. Gotta admit- that movie has a lot of hype around it but I thought it was sort of dumb. For it’s time I’m sure it was scandalous and the acting was probably impressive at the time but the whole story line was just odd and weird to me. In my eyes, Rain Man was a much better choice!
So tell me this: What is your favorite older movie??
- BIG (we didn’t specify size but we both want a big house- like a you get lost in it big house)
- Wine Cellar- a definite must
- Water Feature- besides the beach Tim also is obsessed with water features
- Jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom
- Wall ball (we did not throw the ball at the wall but rather used a heavy ball and threw it up in the air and jumped each time when we caught it)
- Deadlift High-pull (with the Olympic bar)
- Box Jumps
- Push Press (AKA dip drive w/ the Olympic Bar)
