Heat Wave

Up here in the northeast, we are expected to see temperatures in the 90’s and even 100 this week! It’s crazy! All I want to do is eat smoothies in this weather, which is why last night’s dinner consisted of just that.

I see you checkin' out my new placemat

Banana Blackberry Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • a few ice cubes
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • a handful of blackberries
  • 1 scoop vanilla SunWarrior
  • pizzelles (italian waffle cookies) whip and sprinkles to top it off!

I consider this dinner and dessert since I added on some toppings! 🙂 There’s also some hidden strawberries cut up at the bottom of the bowl. It definitely hit the spot after a long day at work!

Today

I repeated Saturday’s upper body workout this morning because it felt so good last week. I modified it a little because I am short on time compared to the weekends, but I left the gym feeling like I did an hour of cardio! I did finish up with 20 minutes on the elliptical, but the strength training had me sweating already.

After enjoying last night’s smoothie so much, I decided to go with the frozen banana theme again this morning. I basically made last night’s smoothie without the blackberries and headed to work.

This weather is not helping me be productive at work. I just want to be swimming or at the beach getting some color!

  1. I love smoothies. It’s hot here in Ohio too- low 90s and humid!

  2. I had a protein shake for dinner last night, too. Not because it was hot.. but because I was lazy.
