Treadmills are for Everyone!

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

I love the cat wiping the sweat off his face, it cracks me up :)

I don't think I need to say much more about the cat treadmill!  Oh, maybe that I remove the toilet roll every night when he goes to bed now and that I don't lock him in the toilet, that's just where his litter box goes.  Gilligan either sleeps on the washing machine, in the laundry tub or on his bed.  I just wanted to clear it up that I don't lock cats in toilets.

This mornings workout was in the pool.  It was a pretty good swim, but I was a little tired.  Late nights and early mornings just don't mix, but before I knew it I was up to lap 5, it's all a little blurry before that.  That's another thing I love about the morning workout, I have actually started it before I have a chance to talk myself out of it.  

My morning alarm for swimming now goes off at 5 am, I have graduated from 5.30 am over the last few weeks.  My alarm started getting earlier because one morning I was awake at 5.20am and thought I may as well get up now and go swimming, after all, it was only a 10 min difference, plus the earlier you are the more lane choices you have.  I know it may sound a little weird, but I don't think I would have handled a whole 30 mins at one time.  Setting the alarm earlier by 10 mins every few weeks is definitely what works best for me :) 


My goodness do I have a smoothie treat for you.  It was delicious and so filling that I could barely finish it.  In light of the quantity and texture of this smoothie I had to find a name that was equally as extravagant.  I present to you the.....

Tropical Thunder Thickshake Smoothie

It was green cause of the spinach, but I promise you, there were no mushrooms today :)  It was so thick, it had the consistency of a thickshake and it was delicious with a banana / pineapple flavour.

Into the blender :

  • 1 cup Almond Milk
  • 1 handful of Spinach
  • 40g (1 serve) Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 50g Natural No-Fat Greek yoghurt
  • 90g frozen Banana
  • 88g frozen Pineapple

    I had better get moving cause Mama Solis arrives tonight, luckily it is hot and windy so all the bed sheets will dry in a flash.  Enjoy your day :)
