That’s what I keep telling myself this week, “breath Bobbi breathe”. It’s been a very busy week, and I am pushing through strong until Friday evening when I get to crash on the couch.
I woke up at 5:15 am and was going to go for a run, and then decided to postpone it for one more day. My body feels ok, but I can tell that it needs some rest. I strongly believe that one should seriously listen to their body and not over do it!! Instead of the run I did some light stretching and finish up some blogger things that have been on the NEVERENDING gmail task list of mine!! I feel a little better now. Does the list ever go blank??
I also had another wonderful Green Monster this morning with a little mango twist. I used 1/2 c soymilk, 3 cups spinach, 1 banana, 1/4 cup blackberries, 1tbsp of flax seed, and 1 cup mango.
Together in the Vita-Mix!
Perfection, loved this smoothie. I couldn’t taste the mango that much but it was very creamy and almost tasted like a tropical mixed drink;) almost.
I also had some leftover mini Oatmeal and Banana pancakes that were in the freezer. Tasted just as good as the day I made them!
Topped them with a little bit of this bad boy, Naturally Nutty Chocolate Butter Toffee Peanut Butter.
A wonderful fueling and healthy breakfast!
Thank you all for the kind words about my Grandmothers wedding ring, I love it and can’t wait to be able to wear it! I also asked the question last night about Cantaloupe and it’s nutritional value thanks Kate for saving the day!!!
Cantaloupe is excellent for your health. It has about 55 calories per cup and a ton of vitamin A along with beta carotene, vitamin C, vitamin B6, fiber, folate and niacin (B3). The combination of B vitamins and fiber support energy production through carb metabolism.
So I would say...keep eating that cantaloupe! And if you can find other types of melon like Crenshaw, Juan Canaray, Galia....those ones have slightly different flavors and all the same benefits.
I will now eat more Cantaloupe as it is in season!!!
Well I gotta run, go out there and have the BEST day of your life!!!! LIVE OUT LOUD!
