Update: You know what it is... HUMP DAY!

So, yesterday my bike decided to attack me. I didn't share the picture because I know some people have pansy stomachs. It's looking rather awesome today. Nice and swollen.The best part is that I wasn't even on the bike. I was walking next to it.

Moving on. Wednesdays are always my crazy day. I had lab at 9am and despite the fact that I went to sleep around 11:30pm, I STILL could not wake up on time. I think it's genetic (thanks dad! lol) I finally woke up around 8:20. Still had to get ready, make breakfast, take the dogs out, print off some lab sheets and, you know, check and make sure every single thing is unplugged and nothing is on because I have this irrational fear of fire.

Anywho, today was definitely a smoothie day. I've perfected this process and it literally only takes me 3-4 minutes to do it. I posted the recipe before here.

-1/2 frozen banana
-1/3 cup frozen mango, diced
-5 frozen cherries

You wanted a picture? Are you joking? I barely had time to eat it! Lol

I contemplated adding information about the liquids I drink during the day. And the lovely follower, Sara, actually inquired about it :) I don't keep up with how many ounces I drink a day, but trust me, it's at least 64 ounces. I drink mainly water, but lately I've been drinking a good bit of Unsweetened Tea! It's just fun to have some flavor! If I ever do drink anything with calories, I definitely add it. I even add Diet Coke because it has sodium in it and I keep up with that as well. Sparkpeople is a great resource and I encourage everyone to at least try it! You can even do it on your smart phone!
