Real Man Shake

Breakfast this morning was served in one of Ryan’s massive protein shake cups.¬†

I felt like I was drinking a real man shake. ūüėȬ†

Green Monster Man Shake

Ryan drinks several protein shakes a day out of these cups. He gets them for free when he buys exorbitant amounts of protein online, so we have about a billion of them. 

Apparently I added an entire bush-worth of spinach to my green monster smoothie today because it was ginormous, as Buddy the Elf would say. 

"Have you seen Julie's green monster? It's ginormous!"

Into the mix went:

Green Goodness

It was thick, filling and, of course, terribly unattractive and green. 

I know I’ve said it before, but I love the way I feel after downing one of these bad boys. Cheesy as it sounds, they make me feel alive! It’s probably all in my head, but I’ll take it! ūüėĬ†

I'm Alive!

Workout

Today’s BodyPump¬†class was emptyyy. Apparently¬†no one was feelin’ the gym today, because there were less than half the amount of people who are normally there in class this morning.¬†

I actually missed the energy of a packed class! I like¬†the¬†“we’re all in this together” feeling I usually get during such an early morning group exercise class and I missed it a bit today. Still, the instructor did a great job, as always, and I got a good workout. Success!¬†

After Pumpin’ it up, I did 25 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical while reading about¬†the latest¬†celebrity trash. I think those celebrity gossip magazines are great gym reading material because they’re basically like picture books! Since it can be hard to read while working out, they’re a perfect fit.¬†

Do you like celebrity gossip magazines? 

I used to try and hide it, but who am I kidding? I love that stuff. Do I care that Carrie Underwood is engaged. Yes, I do. ūüôā
