Things not worth crying about today:
1) Snow in mid-April.
2) Eating healthy.
3) Spilled milk.
So yeah it snowed this morning and it sucked but even so I hauled ass out of bed at 4:40 to get to my BOMF run (I am part of Team Quincy in the Boston “chapter”). Four volunteers and five hearty runners in the unexpected cold and slush…had a getting to know you/catch up breakfast at McDonald’s. I love when we run but I also love when we talk. That group kills it!
I had an awesome smoothie for a snack. It was like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Only it wasn’t. But it was as good and—per MyFitnessPal—264 calories. A lot for a snack? Perhaps. But not when you’ve eaten a light breakfast and a light lunch and worked out. Right?
And then no crying over the spilled milk either. I couldn’t figure out why my scale was going up and down while I was adding almond milk to my blender. Seems I forgot the rubber gasket when reattaching the blade mechanism. Oopsie. That’s where the milk was going. All over the counter. Right. O rings matter. But we already knew that.
1 cup of vanilla unsweetened almond milk
1/2 frozen banana (mine was about 80g)
3/4 cup (140g/one serving) frozen mixed berries (these were organic, Townsend Farms, from Costco)
1T Skippy all-natural peanut butter
3T liquid egg whites
Blended the hell out of it and mmmmm….frozen PBJ&Deliciousness.
And to quote from one of the best movies ever, “There’s no crying in baseball.”
Go Red Sox. And remember, not much is worth crying over. Channel your energy and emotion toward your goal and not away from it—if your crying is moving you in the wrong direction, stop it already.
