I'm in love with smoothie bowls

I know they look so plain but they are so so good-

This one had
A frozen banana
A scoop of organic protein powder
1TBSP Peanut Butter
1/4 cup oats soaked with 1/4 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
Touch of cinnamon and vanilla
I added another 1/4 cup of almond milk
2 TBSP of Greek plain Greek yogurt
(I forgot the chia seeds)
Blended and perfect for before my run (I have a hard time finding stuff that doesn't hurt my stomach before I run)
So much so that I have a Doug Heffernan moment when I get to the bottom of the bowl!
Such a sad moment....
Today was a weights day-My push ups are improving as are my sit-ups and lat pulls are up to where I need them to be....So fingers crossed that I am ready for the physical next Monday.....
I had another running owie today-I don't know what it is but my feet are always hurting! I don't know why-I wear good socks-I wear good shoes, and change them when they wear out-and I even have custom orthotics that certainly are not cheap (Thank god for benefits). So its either blisters or bleeding toe nails-hmmmI guess it goes with the territory....
10 miles tomorrow so hope it heals quick!
When I got back from the gym I had a left over chick pea burger with lettuce, tomato and onion and a side of broccoli with my homemade salsa.....Not bad-Kind of boring.......
I love Mondays (Well when I don't work) The benefits of being a shift worker....Love having week days off-Makes errands SO much easier when the stores and businesses are so quiet-
Oh and once Ray is home we have to go VOTE-Can't wait to see the results!
Still waiting to go vote and know we are having a late supper tonight-Needed something low cal to tied me over until we eat so I made a low cal
Green Monster Smoothie
Add a HUGE hand full of baby spinach to the blender (about 2-3 cups packed)
1 cup original unsweetened almond milk
1/3 cup of fresh blueberries
a few ice cubes
1 teaspoon honey
Including the honey this only has 109 cal and its a pretty good snack to hold you over.
If you wanted something more substantial I would add some protein powder and You can also add a frozen banana-I would omit the honey if you do as the banana has enough natural sweetness!
