My First Smoothie

My new project is “Clean Eating”. Here’s my training plan:

Week 1 – Intro to Smoothies (Rest of this week):

  • One smoothie per day

Week 2 – Eats Your Greens (Aug 24 – 31):

  • Previous week plus:
  • One meal sized salad a day, including plant based protein

Week 3 – Additional Clean Meal (Sept 1 – 7):

  • Previous weeks plus:
  • One additional clean meal a day

Week 4 – Snack Time! (Sept 8 – 14):

  • Previous weeks plus:
  • One homemade energy bar a day

Week 5 – Total Take Over (Sept 15 – 21):

  • Previous weeks plus:
  • One additional clean meal a day (total of 2 clean meals plus a meal sized salad)

Today I made my first official Clean Eating smoothie. It consisted of:

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 3/4 of a banana
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 scoops vanilla flavored whey protein powder
  • 2 packets Equal

This made two servings a little over 1 cup each.

My first smoothie!

I’m fully aware that the 2 packets of Equal kind of negate the entire Clean Eating idea, but damn, if I was going to drink the whole thing I needed to put some sweetener in it. Forgive me. My tastebuds are still accustomed to the Standard American Diet. Including donuts. And pizza. Forgive me. I already have.

Seriously, Clark?

Like for real? No. Seriously. No. Just…no. [whiny rich girl problem rant to commence] I don’t get it. I honestly don’t understand. Why the fuck is my running still so bad and only getting worse? Seriously. (Okay, I”m done with the “seriously”s now.) At the very least I would think I would be just maintaining speed, butContinue Reading

Sleep Typing

Aaaand this is where people are going to stop reading my blog. Well, maybe. But hopefully not. I haven’t been posting for a while for a few reasons: I haven’t been stoked about running, and therefore haven’t wanted to take the time to upload my stats and report on them There’s so much going onContinue Reading

Week 38 Goals

Aaaaand it’s Monday again. (I seriously considered just ending the post right there, but though I should soldier on for at least a few hundred more words.) I just haven’t been in the mood to write recently. I’ve been feeling not too snarky or funny, and I kinda hate writing when I don’t have anything fun,Continue Reading
