Today is a very exciting day.

Wanna know why?

  • I’m moveable now ~ the H2C soreness has mostly all worn off
  • It’s Wednesday ~ hump day!
  • I’m going to Pump It this morning
  • I’m teaching Pump It today ~ the entire class just me!

Yup, that’s right.  This girl’s subbing for Pump It today and Friday.  Wish me luck, I’m pumped about the whole thing.

So glad to know I’m not the only one who’s crazy and get’s up before the crack of dawn.  It was fun reading about your mornings!

Remember all these blackberries I picked from my house? 

Well, most of them got frozen so I can make sure they last me a long time.  What are frozen blackberries perfect for?

Smoothies of course!

Frozen blackberries are like adding delicious flavored ice to your smoothie.  Much like frozen banana, less ice and more flavor makes for a tasty smoothie.


This smoothie may look like my blackberry oat smoothie, but it sure is not the same.

Slurp slurp.

Blackberry Almond Smoothie
Serves 1


  • 1 cup frozen blackberries
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 cup soymilk
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tbsp sprouted omega blend (or chia seeds)
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • extra ice or water depending on how you like your smoothie


  1. Combine everything except the slivered almonds into the blender.  Blend until smooth.  Top with almonds and extra blackberries.

Hope your Wednesday is great!

  1. Wow, your smoothie is…beautiful? Haha sounds kind of funny to say about a drink, but it’s true! 🙂
    Keep us (or me at least!) posted on how the body pump class goes! I’m getting my master’s in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, and want to get certified in a few group classes as well. I haven’t decided which ones, and am also generally curious about the process 🙂
