Motivational Monday #27 + Caffeine Protein Smoothie Recipe

Workouts

This is crazy but I went on one of my longest runs in quite some time on Saturday. The weather finally cooled off so I hit the trail. Now I really took a route that was longer than 3.5 but had some stops along the way. I underestimated the humidity….but I chose to take advantage of my walk breaks and did lunges in between my bouts of running. 

I didn’t live up to my goals I set myself for July when it came to running, but I’m okay with it. I will set the same goals for August and see how I do. But I’m enjoying this nice post workout drink currently that adds in some caffeine boost!

Getting Crafty for the Holidays

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeaaaaarrrrrrrrr……..

I definitely put my Christmas tree up before Thanksgiving this year and I was not upset/ashamed about it one bit. Something I always enjoy each year are advent calendars. My parents took advent calendars to a whole new level. They made their own box of treats in little homemade bags to open each day.

The gifts have been k-cups, chocolates, suckers, hair ties and this fun bracelet that I haven’t taken off. It’s definitely something I can’t wait to do once I wake up each day.
Other crafts that have been created with the boyfriend include these pinecone Christmas trees.

We actually had so many extra pinecones, that we filled this little bag, I was gifted with last year, with them as decorations.

Then most recently, Christmas Crack. I first had this recipe in high school. I remember very fondly as it was right after my compartment syndrome release and I was recovering on the couch upstairs from my surgery. My friend, Wes, had brought over a bunch for me and my family and I became obsessed with this recipe. However, as simple as it may look to make, it sometimes doesn’t turn out. Kind of like no bake cookies. It’s a hit or miss if it will set up perfectly.
