So this morning I started off my new year right with a Green monster smoothie! I don't have any photos, but i'll give the recipe!

PB Green Monster Smoothie:
makes one large smoothie

6 ounces water (sometimes i used almond milk)
1-2 cups of spinach
1 tbsp natural peanut butter
1/2 banana
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 scoop of chocolate peanut butter whey protein
2 pumps sugar free chocolate syrup (sometimes i omit this)

So delicious and refreshing this morning.
I'm running on two hours of sleep. Yeah, i'm crazy. Had to work @ 7:00 a.m. at the gym after new years eve. not fun. at least everyone working out is friendly and cheerful.

I plan on going to Bodyattack today. It's an intense cardio class with some intense push-ups, abs, and lunges included. my all time favorite group exercise class. my heart-rate blasts up to 180 and i usually burn over 500 calories in this class. much needed after a few days of not working out. whoops.

I can't wait to sleep later. wish i didn't have to work at java tomorrow morning, but oh well.

maybe ill come back with some food posts. oh yeahhhh. my fave. & take pictures with my awesome camera that my wonderful mama got me. :)
