You know that saying… The girls from Skinny Bitch love to say that if you eat animals you’re eating pain and fear and blah blah blah. I don’t necessarily think THAT’S true, but I definitely can feel it in my body and mood when I’ve been treating myself poorly.
Yesterday I was feeling kinda sick. I’ll spare you the details, but let’s just say the morning at work was rough. Instead of doing what I REALLY wanted to do (call in sick, lay in bed with Pretty Little Liars, and snuggle with my puppy), I decided to stick out my day at work and treat myself as kindly as possible.
I had a green monster smoothie at lunch. If green monsters don’t revive you, I don’t know what will. Spinach, banana, yogurt, PB2, and chia seeds. A miracle in a blender.
I also planned a workout at our apartment gym, but the weather was SO nice, I couldn’t resist a run. Is anyone else craving fall weather so outdoor workouts are a little more bearable?
Another reason I’m looking forward to cooler weather is so I can stop getting sweat in my eyes! Whenever I decide to not wear a baseball cap on runs, the sweat gets in my eyes and they burn the whole time. I guess I need a visor or something? I always think of this Regina Spektor song and the part that goes, “I’ve got a perfect body/but sometimes I forget/I’ve got a perfect body/’Cause my eyelashes catch my sweat.” I appreciate the sentiment–yay body positivity!!–, but my eyelashes do not catch my sweat, Regina.
Speaking of music… I also treated myself to the new CD by The Lumineers! I listened to it in its entirety on my run yesterday. Everyone knows/loves “Ho Hey,” but my favorites right now are definitely “Classy Girls” and “Slow It Down”.
Before I leave you, here’s a gratuitously adorable photo of my dog loving Alex more than me.
