My two little puppies are great, but I would love a third â€“ BIG â€“ dog! I always imagine running with a big dog. How fun would that be?
Iâ€™ve been taking him on fast-paced 1.5 mile walks, and today we built up to a 2.0 mile walk with minimal breaks for sniffing and peeing.
I rocked my new â€œEh?â€ shirt (from Angela, whoâ€™s at Universal Studios for the day). A creepy man rolled down his car window and screamed, â€œEhhhhhh!" as we walked by. Thaaaaanks, creeper. Thanks.
I really do think James could work up to a 2.0 mile run over time. He might need to take a few walking breaks, but sometimes, I do too! 🙂
Before our walk, I made pancakes and smoothies for our guests. My serving of buckwheat pancakes, strawberries, and syrup:
Nothing like pancakes on a Saturday morning!
And after the walk, I made a simple green monster, which contained 1 cup almond breeze, 1/2 a banana, and 2 cups raw spinach. My energy levels are SKY HIGH since I started to drink these regularly. Yay for GREENS!
The secret to using 1/2 a banana and saving the other half without it spoiling? Keep it in the peel, put in a plastic bag, and store in the fridge.
I use 1/2 a banana in many smoothies just because I use banana for a lot of other meals â€“ oatmeal, granola and yogurt, snacks â€“ and I donâ€™t want to OD on bananas! A little banana sweetness goes a lot way, especially in green monsters.
Iâ€™m going to take a nap and then have a real lunch. The Husband and I were up until 2 AM playing on our respective iPhones (we just got them yesterday, and Iâ€™m already hooked!). We may never actually speak to one another again. Weâ€™re just going to communicate via text message. :)
VERY exciting evening planned, too!
Do you work out with your dog?
