Extra Dark

Happy Saturday Morning!

The sun is shining once again here! This morning, when I saw the rays peeking through my blinds I knew a run was on the agenda. Besides, my car is in the shop and I needed to hit up an ATM so I might as well kill two birds with one stone, right?!

My run was breezy and warm and although it wasn’t super far, it just felt good to be outside. I also want to get more accustomed to running outside for my 5k!

I walked for awhile so I could take some pictures. Spring has certainly sprung!

I got home and tackled one heck of a closet! Seriously, I have WAY too many clothes. Isn’t that just part of being a girl though?? ;)

I now have more clothes to donate and a closet full of spring clothing. Don’t you just love finding old favorites in your wardrobe?

Next up was breakfast!

Run + warm weather = smoothie. Duh.

I ran out of any kind of milk and don’t have any yogurt, so I figured water might work. And it did! ┬áThis smoothie was extra dark and chocolaty. Plus I added a little somethin’ somethin’ extra.

Remember this?

I finally broke these suckers out and they made my smoothie delish.

In the mix:

  • 1 banana
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 tbsp. chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tbsp. special dark cocoa powder
  • 1/2 c. frozen berry blend
  • splash vanilla
  • pinch Splenda

Yes, this smoothie is worthy of a straw and a spoon. I’m indecisive. Dare I say this was the best smoothie I’ve ever made? Nah, not much can top one that tastes like a Wendy’s frosty!

Ok, I’m off to shower and get ready. Allie and I are off to get pedicures! Weeeee!

What’s your favorite smoothie combo. I hope some of you are more creative than me!

    I’m super boring when it comes to smoothies. :P My fave combo has a banana, fresh strawberries, vanilla yogurt, and milk in it.
