In Love With Green Smoothies....


After reading so many articles on the health benefits of green smoothies, I decided to give it a go. Yesterday I passed by the vegetable market on my way home and got some spinach, beetroot, cucumber, pineapples and bananas for my little green smoothie experiment.

This morning's breakfast consisted of spinach, pineapple, banana and orange. Mmmmmm.... it was totally awesome!




This is enough proof that I enjoyed it, right? lol!


Recipe

1 cup of pineapple
1 cup of banana
1 handful of spinach
Juice squeezed from two medium-sized oranges

Blend the ingredients with ice in the blender, serve and enjoy. :-)

Getting Back In The Game...

These last few weeks have been crazy for me. The power outages have made me lose my running rhythm. I'm too scared to go running in the dark and the elliptical isn't really a fun workout for me anymore. So, over the weekend I decided I was going to have to find alternatives to prevent me from falling totally off the wagon. I've had these Jillian Michaels and Billy Blanks workouts on my laptop waiting to be used. Perhaps it's time. 

This morning everyone at the office seemed to like my appearance. It's amazing how they seem to think I've slimmed when I still think I have a long way to go. This is what I looked like (forgive the photo, not all phone cameras are equal. lol!)



Have a great week folks!
