After being away from the house for so many days, today has been a busy day! For the first time in over two weeks I went to bed last night without setting my alarm… what a nice feeling! I did not care how late I slept, but I am glad that I was out of bed by 9:40 this morning – I did not want to sleep the whole day away!
The first thing I did was go to the grocery store because we were out of a lot of key ingredients for breakfast. At the market I picked up some milk, Stoneyfield yogurt, eggs, cheese and Canadian Bacon (at mom’s request – yum!). On my way home I stopped at Dunkin Donuts and ordered a medium iced coffee with 1/2 the normal ice with milk. It was sooo good on such a hot day!
When I got home I set to work making our Sunday morning smoothie. I used the Organic Cow 1% milk (about 3/4 a cup) 1/2 a cup of Stoneyfield vanilla low fat yogurt, a small handful of frozen blueberries, another small handful of rasberries, 1/2 scoop of protein powder and a packet of Vega smoothie infusion which I got at the Summit yesterday (a review of this product is coming later this week, I promise).
The smoothie was very pretty:
More importantly (maybe) it tasted very good as well. I had this at 10:30 this morning and did not have to eat again until 3 o’clock. I like anything that works for that long!
It is very hot today in Rhode Island. It is in the 90s which is a bit of a shock to my body, since it has felt more like spring or fall for much of the summer. But today I have embraced the heat. I took a twenty minute walk around my neighborhood as I talked with one of my very good friends via BlueTooth and iPhone. I like combining my walking time with talking time if it is in person or on the phone. It cam make the walk more interesting, and the time goes by a lot quicker! I feel like it is more productive to talk while moving when my other option is to talk while sitting on the couch 🙂
After getting home and showering I decided to investigate some yoga on the much raved about Yoga Downloads website. I did not realize that all of their 20 minute downloads are now free – wow!! Today I downloaded three classes and did a half hour of yoga in the living room. It was so hot while I was doing yoga, I felt like I was participating in Bikram (or hot yoga) rather than Hatha! Needless to say, I felt great after my half hour of yoga.
After my workout I took a break for lunch. I made a great sandwich on a piece of Arnold’s double protein bread with a slice of Monterey Jack cheese, with two slices of chicken, lettuce, tomato and spice brown mustard. This sandwich was sooo good! On the side I had some more blueberries and a few Cape Cod potato chips!
I thought my sandwich was very pretty today – and I was remembering Janel’s advice about consuming a fruit and a vegetable with every meal… I accomplished that with my tomato, lettuce and blueberries. It was a very satisfying lunch.
Well, I am off to see my friends Tim & Nicole for dinner a movie and maybe a swim – it sure is hot enough.
I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday. See you soon!

Gorgeous smoothie… look a that color!
It’s supposed to reach into the 90s here in Boston today… ugh. Keep cool in Rhode Island!
That sandwich looks professionally created! I’d like one for lunch today, please! It was interesting about the meetings that you attended. It’s neat that you were able to attend. Sounded like a lot of fun.
