It’s that time again.
Time to pack my bags for a weekend at home in Fort Wayne. Packing is definitely not on the top of my list when it comes to “things I look forward to doing” no matter how excited I am for the trip. For some reason, the shorter the trip, the more bags I pack. I am always worried and stressed that I will forget something. It’s like I forget that if I forget my toothbrush, there just happens to be a grocery store less than 5 minutes from my parent’s house.
Packing has been slightly easier recently due to the fact that I get ready at the gym every morning. I just keep all of my “getting ready” stuff in a bag so that when I go to the gym I just grab the bag, which makes it nice to just “grab the bag” while packing for a little trip home.
Breakfast was another smoothie…slightly more attractive than yesterday’s breakfast 😉
Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie Bowl
- 1/4 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/3 frozen banana
- 1 scoop Sunwarrior protein powder
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 packet stevia
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- a little bit of water to get things movin’!
I decided to make this my rest day! Usually I take Sundays as my rest day, but since I am heading home I am going to a Body Pump class tomorrow with mom, and I am planning on heading for a run on Sunday.
Another factor in my decision to take this day of rest was the fact that I don’t have to be at work until 11am today! Seriously, what a better way to start a Friday? It is kind of like having an adult snow day. At work, we have an all company sales meeting from 11am-5pm. The meeting is located downtown, and my office is located North of downtown. Because I live South of downtown, my boss was kind enough to realize how much unnecessary extra driving going into work would require, so she told me to just go to the meeting. I didn’t complain one bit!
So, the morning will include getting ready for my trip home, blog stuff, and a little bit of relaxation!
FYI….the craft turned out great! However, I can’t share pictures…YET! Don’t worry, you will know soon 🙂
