Tickled Pink

Today I did something I haven't done in a while. I went to the gym! I haven't been to our apartment's gym since well before the wedding. I was so busy that I didn't have time to make it on a daily basis like I used to. Instead, I took advantage of owning a dog and spent hours walking him every day. I think he really enjoyed the attention! Well, after my hour long walk with Zeke this morning, I ventured down to the gym in our building to put in a workout.

I followed a strength training routine I found on Julie's Peanut Butter Fingers blog site.

When I was finished with strength, I hopped on the elliptical and put in a quick 15 minute cardio session. I didn't feel the need to do anything too crazy, as I had just walked Zeke for over an hour.

Now on to lunch. I was very hot and thirsty after the gym, so I was craving something to quench my thirst. I found a recipe in a magazine that I really wanted to try when I had all of the ingredients. A watermelon smoothie! Thankfully, we actually had watermelon in our fridge today, so it was the perfect time to test this recipe out.

Watermelon Smoothie
-2 cups diced watermelon
-1 cup ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.
