Earlier today, I had a random, thick, "I ran out of almond milk" blender drink:
1 banana, strawberries, applesauce, spinach, oatmeal, walnuts, chocolate protein powder, cashew butter, almond milk, and sesame seeds.
And a giant big boy salad for lunch:
can of black beans, spinach, field greens, 1/2 avocado, mushrooms, red pepper, broccoli, cauliflower, and salsa

And finally, today's kick-butt mindset quote:
"Unhappiness is not knowing what you want and killing yourself to get it." - Unknown.....Listen, make sure your goals are specific. Know your destination. This goes for fitness, work, life, etc. Don't grind yourself into the ground because you don't have a finish line.
Stay strong and set those goals,
Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
