Themes and Things

So I made a big decision about the blog today! Instead of doing a daily theme, I’m just going to do whatever ‘theme’ comes to me when I sit down and write. Although I think clever alliterations like ‘Motivation’ Monday, ‘What I Wore’, ‘One Word’, or ‘Workout’ Wednesday, and ‘Fun Facts’ Friday are super cute and fun, I’m finding it challenging to make my life match those daily themes. I will definitely do posts with those titles, but I will do them when they fit the day I’m having. There are days when I stay in workout clothes, days when I don’t have any new, exciting eats, days when I just don’t find anything that worthy of an in-depth recap. On days like that, I would really struggle trying to force a post that fulfills a certain ‘day’ if that’s not the day I’ve had. Blogging is a part of my life, and I’m not willing to form my days around a silly little post.

Now that a decision has been made and made clear on here, let’s get to the fun stuff!

~~~~~~~~~~

I started my day with a quick breakfast consisting of a smoothie and a hard boiled egg for additional protein.

I couldn't wait to slurp down the smoothie...so here's half of it!

I couldn’t wait to sip on this bad boy…so here’s half of it!

In the smoothie:

-1/2 frozen banana

-4 frozen strawberries

-handful frozen spinach

-1/2 cup vanilla almond milk

-little under 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder

~~~~~~~~~~

After scarfing down that breakfast, I did a 50 minute workout which was comprised of:

-5 minute circuit (jumping jacks, jump rope, high knees, jump rope, jumping jacks)

-2 mile run on treadmill

-5 minute circuit (speed skaters, butt kicks, box jumps, snowboard jumps, squat kicks)

-2 mile run on treadmill

-5 minute circuit (sumo squats, Heisman shuffle, calf raises, jumping lunges, bridges)

-3 minute planks (1 minute front, 1 minute each side)

-STRETCHED and rolled (I’ll have to show you my stretching routine one of these days!)

~~~~~~~~~~

Once I showered and did a little intern work, I made a quick lunch of a whole grain bagel with crunchy peanut butter and raspberry fruit spread.

I have an interview in a little while so I needed to put on a decent outfit. I loved the outfit I wore for the family pics on Saturday, so I decided to do a look similar to that (sorry if I’m boring you with basically the same outfit in different colors…I’ll show you something different soon!).

Once again – the shorts, belt, and shirt are J.Crew!

The bow earrings are Francesca’s, and unfortunately I have no clue where the little twists are from.

The watch is Relic, and the two bracelets are Alex and Ani! I wear all three of these every single day.

And on my feet, I’m wearing my dirty silver Jack Rogers!

The rest of my day looks like this: interview, coffee (and a snack for me!) with a friend, dinner (which I think will be hamburgers, sweet potato fries, and fruit salad) with the fam, then hopefully ice cream with some friends tonight!

Hope you have a great day!
