A life changing smoothie, and a love hate relationship with a staircase

Since the beginning of this year, I’ve started walking 2 miles on the beach every Sunday. After my walk I walk/run the giant horrible staircase there. This is kind of embarrassing to admit, but when I started this weekly walk & stairs, I was only able to do 1 set of stairs (barely) after my walk. Halfway up I would need to stop to catch my breath before I could actually finish the staircase. I am now able to do TWO sets of stairs without stopping after my walk. This is a pretty big deal for me!

The set of stairs is on the larger side of staircases (or at least that’s what I think)! This is my view on the way down. I absolutely hate this part for many reasons that I will get into at another time.


This is my view on the way up. See! It is a big staircase! It is so much harder on the way up. Feels like my quads are on fire at this point


I love the feeling of being done. It’s a real sense of accomplishment. On another note … How gorgeous is this view?? The ocean smelled amazing too.


Anyway … After my walk I made an insanely delicious smoothie. I put 1/2 cup of nonfat greek yogurt, 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder, 2 tbsp of PB2 and a few dashes of cinnamon in my Nutribullet and blended it up. I put another dash of cinnamon on top to make it decorative. Seriously the best smoothie that I have ever made.


It’s life changing. You MUST try it!

I just realized that I have lost track of time. I hate when that happens! I was going to post some more stuff! Like a Spanish rice recipe!

Oh well … that will have to wait until tomorrow.
