Drinking (and running) My Feelings

21 Aug

and not even the fun kind!

I finally made that smoothie:

the materials.

before the whirl

nearly ready to slurp!

ready to downnnn

There’s the final (giant) bowl, topped with raw oats and some TJ’s twigs.

Very soon after I finished, I had to put on some real clothes

… and drop the Hubs off at the airport. *sniff*. He’s not coming back to see me for nearly two weeks. I’m a sad panda right now.

To make me feel better, he ordered me to go to my Happy Place (or one of them, at least)– Whole Foods!!!

So I popped on over and immediately bought myself this guy to keep my company as I completed a little retail therapy:

I will take your pain awayyy!

A fresh juice with carrot, apple, beet, spinach, cucumber, celery + spirulina. The spirulina was a new thing for me– I expected some kind of seaweed taste for some reason, but all it seemed to do was darken up the color of the juice. No taste that I could discern, at least with all the other juice in there!

I bagged up some bulk bin chia seeds and nutritional yeast (sooo glad to have these things back in the bulk bins!), and quickly made my way over to the good stuff. But not before getting distracted by this:

sample? don't mind if I do.

The hot food/ salad bar is where it’s at, yo. I grabbed up some lunch and dinner and then drove home.

Before digging in, I stupidly decided to fit in a teeny bit of cardio. Stupidly because I decided to run at the hottest time of the day, and being a Seattle girl through-and-through, I am highly sensitive to the warm weather.

Only got through about a mile and a half before calling it quits.

shweaty beast.

Food was delayed yet again for a MUCH needed shower, and then I promptly dug into my newly-acquired goods:


.. a brown rice cucumber avocado roll, followed by a ginormous and delicious peach.

I would tunnel in and fly to New York on you, peach.

That’s all for now. I’m about to curl up on the couch and watch some Netflix and procrastinate on doing anything related to school prep. 🙂 Have a good night!!

Question for you:

Did you catch the movie/book reference on that last pic? 😉
