Perhaps a 6-mile run at 6:30am? Even though I slept a solid 9 hours (after falling asleep at 8pm in my work clothes and proceeding to wake up at 5am looking like a hot mess of a hungover college girl who had just woken up in some random guy’s bed), it still took every ounce of energy I had to run. That and a slice of PB+J toast with black coffee.
Yes, more PB+J+B toast and black coffee. No shame.
…gives you a sense of accomplishment.
For me, that was working diligently all morning and getting thisfrickinclose to finishing a few projects at work while sipping on a TJ’s Raspberry Lime sparkling water + POM juice mocktail.
…makes no logical sense whatsoever.
Like purchasing an overpriced KIND bar when you’re trying to stick to a budget and brought your lunch to work. Then, if at all possible, devour it in 0.02 seconds and never actually take the time to taste it.
…is completely new to you.
You all know I love my yog messes. That’s just plain fact. However, I think the apple mess is totally the new yog mess. Mark my words Zac Posen. Just take 1.5 cups of unsweetened, natural applesauce and add 1/2 cup of strawberries + 1 crumbled Dark Chocolate Muffin. Mess and eat.
…that involves the word ‘balls.’
If for no other reason than it’s good for an immature chuckle. And let’s be real, we need more immature chuckles in our lives. Whether it’s Caitlin’s Flax-Encrusted Sweet Potato Balls (below) or one of Averie’s Famous Raw Ball recipes, just say balls. It will immediately make you smile. Balls. I dare you. Balls.
…includes peanut butter + chocolate.
For obvious reasons.
…makes you feel like you are back in 6th grade.
Like ROLLERBLADING! I went rollerblading with my friend Steph after work for an hour. Did I almost biff it multiple times? Of course. But when you get sunny, 80 degree weather in Wisconsin, you soak up every last droplet of warmth and forget about falling face first in the grass. Then you come home and while dinner is cooking, devour some of Gena’s delicious Banana Soft Serve…
2 small frozen bananas
lots of cinnamon
1/2 T peanut butter
…is just plain good for your body.
Today, that meant veggies…LOTS of veggies! I took 3 heads of kale, and with the help of coconut oil, salt, garlic salt, crushed red pepper + a 400 degree oven, turned them into a mean batch of Kale Chips. Then I nuked a sweet ‘tater in the microwave for 6 minutes (poke holes in it first) and topped it with a bit o’ real buttah. And yes, I ate the skin. Mama Everythingtarian says that’s where all the fiber is.
…requires no thought at all.
Watch Glee, LOST (requires some thought) and Pray the Devil Back to Hell in bed with the same clothes you went rollerblading in, do some dishes while listening to Pandora, take a warm bath and go to bed without overthinking a single minute of your day. If you figure out how to do that last one, please let me know.
Fill in the blank. Do something everyday that ________, and give me an example from your day!
