too many raspberries and the veggie queen

i went to make a protein shake this afternoon. out of the frozen strawberries,but plenty of frozen raspberries. YUMMM right?!?!

Well apparently not. I don’t know if i had too many raspberries or what, but it was awful. I used the same ingredients except for raspberries in place of strawberries. I like raspberries a lot, but for whatever reason it tasted gross. I drank less than half of it and had to throw it away. I NEVER throw things away, because im a little gluttonous girl and usually can stand to eat things even if they aren’t that great. But this was just gross.

This morning i got a great shoulder workout in. I am going to try to post a video this week(I promise!!) of a shoulder exercise that my trainer taught me. I don’t know if it has a formal name because i have never seen it before in my life, but it gets your rear delts burning like crazy!!

Finished off with elliptical for 1 hour and 15 minutes(i just felt like going more i don’t knwo why this NEVER happens haha)

Now i am going for a hike with friends! It is hot outside(almost 90 already) and im still sunburnt. My friend is bringing me some sunscreen because im afraid all of my skin will fall off if i don’t use any haha.(really not a laughing matter, but i tend to laugh at things that shouldn’t be laughed at. sue me.)

Eats today:
breakfast/pre workout: 1/2 cup oats with 20 blueberries(ya im a nerd i counted) and 1 scoop of isopure creamy vanilla protein powder
post workout: 2 cups of egg whites(im gluttonous remember?) 1 cup of spinach, some chopped onion and green peppers, 2 cups of broccoli, 175 g. of sweet potato
snacks: another serving of egg whites with spinach, onion and green pepper, an ENTIRE BAG of green beans(the steamfresh bag–so 4 cups of green beans), a little bit of a terrible protein shake, some blueberries and some strawberries, 5 almonds

I think i got my vegetable servings in today…right?! haha

Dinner tonight after my hike will be pretty simple. I am going to probably cook the chicken that i have been meaning to cook for the last few days and pair it with some asparagus.

Off to the mountain!

    Ok I am so jealous of the hiking and the 90 degree weather! Can’t wait to get outside for some good old Cardio.

    Have a great time!
