VLOG #5, part one

Hey kiddos! Thanks for all your sweet comments on my last post, where I succeeded in humiliating my lovely sisters on the World Wide Web.  Hey, what are sisters for if we can’t post obnoxious pictures of each other for all of cyberspace to see?  It’s all in love.  And they know it.

Anyways, breakfast yesterday was epic.  I’ve been dreaming about this smoothie for days.  In my head, I’ve been carefully crafting each component and waiting for the perfect morning for this idea to come to fruition.  Today was the day.  Get ready boys and girls…it’s time for a Chunky Monkey Smoothie!

1 cup organic skim milk
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
2 small bananas, frozen + sliced
2 tbsp. brown rice protein powder
1 tbsp. peanut butter
a couple dashes of cinnamon
1/4 cup Not Sweet Vanilla Galaxy Granola

It was seriously delicious. And lasted me 4 hours.

Dinner combined the two food groups I desperately need in my life (and body) right now – protein + veggies! With bikini season on the horizon and a lil’ too much indulging these past couple weeks, it’s time to get back to basics.  That means more veggies + lean proteins and A LOT LESS sugar.

Emphasis on A LOT LESS.

2 large handfuls spring mix
1 hard-boiled egg
1 grated carrot
1 Sunshine Falafel patty
drizzle of light ranch dressing
steamed sweet ‘tater + smidge o’ buttah

After work, a 60-minute Dave Farmar yoga podcast and dinner, it was time.  Time for what, you ask? Time for VLOG #5! That’s right, I said it.

I enlisted the help of my friend Brett to showcase his fimography skills…

Such a cute lil’ thang he is. And so kind + generous.

I definitely owed him a drink for taking one for the team and transforming himself into a filmmaker extraordinaire all for the purpose of my fifth VLOG….

Cheers, and welcome to the Willy Street Co-op, home of The Healthy Everythingtarian’s VLOG #5!!!

Watch and learn. And hopefully laugh.  I make no promises.

Two things:

  • Ummm….could YouTube have chosen a worse still shot of me?
  • And, could I have said the word noise “ummm” any more in this VLOG? I must work on that (I don’t want to word “um” to be my downfall from getting my own show on the Travel Channel, ya know?).

Thank you to the wonderful staff at Willy St. Co-op for letting me do this as well as to Brett for filming my craziness on camera! And, as you may have noticed, this video is only part one of a three part VLOG (yes…I said three part) so get ready for more co-op action in my next post.

With that, it’s 7:07am and I haven’t showered, eaten or done anything yet this morning to get myself one step closer into work.  Oops!

Enjoy and have a lovely day!

I’m finally catching up at 11:56 p.m. because, um…the house is quiet enough to hear you. The biggest thing I’ve learned so far: you are ADORABLE. Important tidbit #2: I didn’t know it was pronounced V-LOG. I thought it was VUHLOGG. Oops. Can’t wait to watch V-more!
