Holy Cow! They are DE-FREAKING-LICIOUS! And I am totally ADDICTED!
I make a blender full each morning and drink it all down by the end of the day. So GOOD!
These delightful smoothies are a close second with the dry skin brushing as being my favorite new healthy practices.
These things are so tasty! It's like drinking thick juice! I like to have mine in, what the lovelies always called, a fancy glass. Did I mention that I am totally and completely 100% addicted to them?
Here are the two blogs/sites that got me started:
Green Smoothies/The Tera Warner Blog
I also wanted to mention sabotage- particularly as it relates to the weight loss part of my journey. I used to be really, really good at sabotaging myself.
I used to struggle with getting upset over the weight thing. It's SUCH A DARN SLOW PROCESS that I would get frustrated with myself. When I got frustrated, I would eat. And eat. My frustrations actually triggered my desire to eat. It became a battle. And the battles were many.
Oh and goodness me! Let's NOT forget that annoying as hell little inner voice to whom we give permission to say things to us like: "Are you kidding? This is too hard. Just stay the way you are. It's so much easier to leave well enough alone. Just one bite won't hurt anything..." It will even remind us from time to time that we don’t have what it takes to lose the weight or it's taking too long that it just isn't going to happen or consider your AGE...anything to make us believe losing weight is nothing less than an insurmountable obstacle.
And that's just what some of us do to ourselves. It's a fight all the way to the finish whether we battle ourselves or others who are not exactly supportive. This time, I am determined to fight it all the way. I am way more stubborn that that annoying as hell inner voice of mine. I now frustrate my frustrations.
And give in to green smoothies instead.
This is the nineteenth day of the A-Z April Challenge. I thought I might try a theme this year and focus on my personal journey to health and fitness, including weight loss.
