Summer lovin’

Hey guys!

Happy Sunday, I hope your enjoying the weather today its 95 here today and I am in love. Today is the first day in a while that I get to actually relax. I got on google reader this morning and it said that I had over 200 unread! Yikes! So im still trying to get caught up on that, but I feel so out of the loop with all of you guys. I’m starting my senior year of high school in eight short days so I am doing a lot to get ready for that. Shopping (fun!) and cleaning my room (not so fun!)

These days I have been eating with a spoon drinking, a lot of smoothies. The thing that I like about smoothies is how versatile they can be. You can literally throw anything into a smoothie and it tastes good. Smoothies are also chock-full of health benefits they can…

  • boost your immune system
  • boost your mental performance
  •  increase digestive efficiency
  • support weight loss/weight maintenance
  • support your liver and kidneys
  •  reduce bad food cravings
  • balance body PH levels
  •  increase energy
  • help blood sugar management

Mom and I went to Chipotle today after church – I was in heaven. But my mom… ehh not so much. She isn’t as crazy about Chipotle as I am. However she did like her burrito, but said that it wouldn’t be her first choice when deciding where to go out to eat. I got double guacamole, and double black beans in my veggie salad. I was one hungry girl haha. (I took this picture with my cell phone so it’s a little weird)

 Ive started school shopping, I got a bunch of stuff that I adore. It’s funny I have my senior pictures coming up and even though I have been shopping so many times, I still haven’t been able to find a single thing to wear. I think I am over thinking the whole thing… next time I go to the mall I am coming home with some outfits!

Yesterday night I marched in my town’s end of summer parade, usually once this happens we know it’s really time to head back to school. I still can’t believe that marching in that parade was the last one that I will ever get to do.

My go to combo is usually a little non-fat milk or almond milk, scoop of whey protein powder (if I feel I need it or after a workout), giant handful of spinach, lots of frozen fruit, peanut butter and flax. Yum! Enjoy your last week, I’m getting ready to continue my masters in ex phys, eek!
