Did that title make you think of anything?
Today I make a partial juice/partial smoothie. I have been trying to incorporate more fiber into my diet, and this certainly did that. For better or worse.
What I did was juice some parsley, ginger, an jalapeno, and part of a Granny Smith apple. I then took the screen off of my juicer and smothied up the rest of that apple, another apple (Also a Granny Smith, I just like their tartness. I’m convinced the Red Delicious marks the birth of false advertisement.), a grapefruit, some frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries, and frozen blackberries. I blended the whole thing up, and got what you see above. It was rather thick, so I added some pineapple juice, thinking it would thin things a bit. It didn’t. The result was almost exactly what you see above. Eh, I didn’t think it was that big of a deal, so I called it quits and poured the stuff into my tummy. The jalapeno really spiced things up, and it was still pretty parsley-ey, but not bad. I like parsley juice anyway.
I finally made it to the library. I am proud to say that I can almost take the stairs to the top without losing my breath, and I try not to think about what that says about my cardio skills. I remember running the mile in middle school. I would almost kill myself (or so it felt, of course), and be very proud with a time of fifteen minutes. It wasn’t until much later that I realized that that’s about walking speed. What a fat little kid I was.
I got some books and sat down next to a girl studying for her GRE. I told her that was almost my name. She appeared pretty unimpressed, but I imagine deep down she was yearning for more. I noticed she was reviewing quadrilaterals, so I said “I notice you’re reviewing quadrilaterals. I love quadrilaterals. They’re unparallelogramed!” Of course, that isn’t even true. Sometimes quadrilaterals ARE parallelograms, everyone knows that. STUPID! Then it happened. She had to go to the bathroom and she asked me to watch her stuff! I was in.
Unfortunately I had to leave just when things were getting good with GRE Girl. I had to be back home for my TRX class this evening. Due to one thing or another, I hadn’t taken the class for two whole weeks. I get out of shape fast. Today we had a newcomer, so I’m hoping my teacher ran us into the ground on purpose, but man, it was brutal. I definitely have to get to eating better, or at least more, because I can feel when I’m just out of energy.
