Finally, I’m not too cold for a smoothie this morning!

It was the usual suspects:

  • baby spinach
  • almond milk
  • 2 dates, pitted
  • frozen berry medley
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla sun warrior
  • ice

Let the Vita Mix whirl!

Yummy. It’s been a while since I added protein powder to my smoothies. Sun Warrior is good, but I find it’s important to add enough ice — that cuts the slightly chalky taste. I’ve been using dates as my sweetener, ever since I got the Vita (because it can pulverize ’em) and I’m really happy with that. They are more than sweet enough and add a lot of very good things in addition to that. This morning’s smoothie was definitely a keeper.

Hubs is back in town, although not yet home — he has a few meetings to attend — but I like knowing he’s close by! Today, as you may know, is the day of my LAST FINAL EVER. I’m very excited. But also a bit nervous. I’ve never felt so unprepared for an exam in my life, nor have I studied this hard for one. The plan for today is to continue with more of what I did yesterday: copious note-taking, watching How The Earth Was Made, and completing as many little sample quizzes online as I can. I have to leave here no later than 4PM, so that roughly gives me about 4.5 hours left of cramming. Boy, will I be relieved when this is over and I no longer I have memorize stuff like this:

Jeez Louise.

Before I leave you go to back to my rocky world, I wanted to bring your attention to the Simply Exercise tab at the top of the page. I’ve posted a month long workout there, which I’ll be starting on Friday. I plan to update you with my progress on that page. I did a little research on myself and discovered that the one and only time I had gotten the weight down and was actually toning up, was back in 2005 when I started working out with Hubs (who was Boyfriend at that time). He taught how to use the weight room in my gym, a place I would normally only walk through, at a quick pace, on my way to the cardio section. Anyway, I used to love pumpin’ a little iron, and I remember that I was getting really strong and fit too, I was almost into a size 4! The proof is in the pants, my friends. So, it’s time to get back on that. It’s universally accepted that a little strength training does the body good. I’m committing myself to this one month plan, and after that, we shall see!

Have a wonderful Thursday — I sure will be, after 7:30PM!
