The first one is my Green Protein Smoothie.
Didn't think to snap a photo until it was gone!!
2 heaping handfuls of baby spinach
1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries
2 T ground golden flaxseed
1 T unsweetened shredded coconut
1 1/2 scoops of Optimum Nutrition Vanilla Ice Cream Whey Protein Powder
1 cup of water
Whirred in the Vitamix for 30 seconds until a shocking greenish brownish and VOILA! It is delicious and keeps me full until lunch, and I have been starting my mornings with it for over a week now.
My second addition is daily hooping.
Right next to the TV so that I can hoop while I watch.
I took a 2 hour hooping class last weekend (Holy Sore Abs, Batman!), and am renewed in my interest! I did 20 minutes yesterday, and 10 minutes this morning thus far. I am aiming for a minimum of 2x10 minute sessions per day. I just ordered a 5 pound power hoop for some extra challenge; I tried one last weekend and it was an entirely different experience!
The third thing is zucchini "noodles".
Yum! So good, and a nice replacement for pasta to keep veggie intake high and calorie count low. And I made this huge bowl of them in less than a minute!
I am enjoying the summer, eating well, swimming often (I actually have a little tan... gasp!), and doing the nice little things for myself like burning incense, reading daily meditations, and journaling at night before bed. All is well.
