Check Out My Shades

The weather in Central Florida today is GORGEOUS! (Think high sixties, not a cloud in the sky!)




It was the perfect morning for a bike ride with good friends.




I had a large breakfast to fill me up before the ride.




I had a blueberry bagel with peanut butter on one side, and blackberry preserves on the other side.




…and an orange on the side.




After breakfast, Caitlin rode over to my apartment…





…we then picked up my friend from class, Mark…




…and Caitlin’s friend Becka.




We all started out together, but we ended up splitting up about half way through. Caitlin wanted to go for a long ride and wanted to take it slow. Mark just got a new bike and was being super speedy.




Mark and I ended up riding 15.0 miles around the airport loop. It took just over an hour. Crazy Caitlin did another loop.


Towards the end, I’m sure I was getting annoying because I wanted to stop and take pictures of the planes. I hear and see them all day long, why I need a picture of them? It’s for the blog!





I am always impressed by airplanes.


While being an obnoxious tourist, I noticed my reflection in Mark’s sunglasses. “Hold on that would be a super sweet picture!”…




Isn’t it COOL?!?!

We finished the ride up and chatted the whole way back.




It was super fun! 😀




Oh yeah! I got new sports sunglasses… random.


Once I got back to my apartment, I made a delicious and refreshing green smoothie while I made lunch.




Lunch was a quick stir fried tofu, rice, egg, and pea combo. YUM!




It’s been a great morning! Time to hit the books. 😦

Avoiding My Flu Bug


I’m sorry I have been MIA all day!

Jason has been feeling worse today, so we made a trip to the doctor, and after patiently waiting, got him a Rx for some flu medication. His temperature was skyrocketing (got up to 104*F !!!) and we knew it couldn’t wait any longer!

I have a ridiculous amount of greens in this apartment, and with this bug going around, I figured what better thing to start my day off with than a Green Monster!


I seriously PACKED the greens in there.


My green monster contained:

  • banana
  • ice
  • 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 1/2 TBL Peanut butter
  • 2 cups of Kale
  • 2 cups of spinach


I drank that at about 7:00 am, and my class gets out at 10:30am so I packed a bar to hold me over.


When I got home around 11:00, Jason told me that he was feeling worse and needed to go to the Doctor’s very soon. I made a quick grilled cheese sandwich with mushrooms and more spinach, plus grilled asparagus and headed out the door.

I packed a couple snacks to take with me to the Doctor’s since I had no idea how long we would be there. First up, a honeycrisp apple.


Then, some pita chips, which I forgot to photograph.

I’m doing everything I can to avoid catching the flu myself! I’m

  • washing my hands
  • trying to eat healthy
  • drinking plenty of water
  • not kissing Jason

I’m not sure what else there is to do, short of staying away from my bug Jason and/or getting a flu shot!

**UPDATE!** Jason’s temp is only 99.1 after taking both motrin and tylenol, hooray!

Have you had the flu? I haven’t had it since middle school! (Knocking on wood RIGHT NOW!!)
