So I recently bought an Aldi brand Magic Bullet type of smoothie machine for about $15. I have to say that I love it so far! I always hear about people making smoothies but whenever I make then in the traditional blender I end up just wasting a lot of it because I love stuffing that blender till it's completely full. This magic bullet knockoff is wonderful because I put in what I need for a single serving smoothie. So this morning I made a smoothie with vanilla greek yogurt by Cabot (the proceeds go to REAL farmers, I love that), spinach, strawberries, a banana, and oats. It was delicious and probably had a good number of calories. So overall, I'm excited to smoothie it up.
Also, in other semi culinary news, I made kale chips the other day. For some reason I kept hearing about this kale vegetable and how good it was for you. It is really cheap to buy and easy to make the chips. I added too much olive oil to them so one batch was semi soggy, but overall they were alright. I'm thinking a better alternative is just to smoothie that kale up!
Exercise-wise, today was a nice day. I went to the gym and took a class. The class kicked my butt. By the end of the class I was, as some would describe, a hot mess. Literally, I was all sweaty, red-faced, hair all over the place, and smelly. That's how I knew I actually got a workout. The plan for tomorrow is to also attend a gym class.
Overall today was a pretty good health day. I probably drank too much coffee (read: I did drink way too much coffee) with that artificial sweetner but tomorrow is another day. Actually it's close to midnight, so in a few minutes it will be another day. The problem is that I drank coffee at night so I'll be up. Hopefully I will be reading articles for school instead of endlessly reading SP blog posts (which I love to read!).
I think that I would be happy in a public health type of job in the future. I just don't know what exactly people employed in the public health sector do or what their job titles are exactly. I have one more year of schooling before I will officially be done with my education at the college level. That scares me. Even though I took a year off before graduate school, I dislike the idea of not being able to stay at a university and keep on learning. I'm saying this now because I don't have any papers to write at this moment.
Keep on sparking sparkers.
