The last couple of days have been going pretty well (in the food department). I had a great trip to the grocery store and bought stuff to make my green smoothies again! Yummi. – I am drinking one right now- I am pretty sure I have posted the recipe on here before. But just in case I did not, I will add a link at the bottom of this post.
Today is really only day two of eating well, but I already feel great! It is a wonder why I fall back into bad habits, when those habits make me feel so gross!
At the moment, I am a stay at home mom. I work in the evenings while my fiance is home, because I wouldn’t be able to afford childcare during the day. Anyway, being home all day is exhausting in itself. It’s funny how doing nothing makes you more tired than running around all day. Or, maybe it is a different kind of tired. When I am eating lots of processed foods, I wake up in the morning and I just can’t get my day going. I don’t have enough energy to do anything. At one point, I was starting to think that something was really wrong with my health. Which, I guess there was. My body wasn’t getting the right nutrients, so it left me feeling tired and groggy.
So, like I said, it is only day two and I jumped out of bed this morning, and got started with my day right away. That hasn’t happened in awhile. It feels good to feel good.
My biggest battle is working out. I can never get motivated. I have tried different things and nothing seems to hold my interest. I am lazy when it comes to working out. 😦
I like to run, but running while pushing a stroller is no fun task! I guess I will just have to force myself to do something. Even walking is better than nothing. My goal is to be more active than I was the previous day. We will see how this goes. 🙂
This is the recipe that I have been using. I use to drink it every single morning. I will be doing that again starting today. I have tweaked the recipe a little.
For my smoothie recipe I do:
Green Tea (Matcha preferred)
A handful of spinach
A handful of kale
1 1/2 celery sticks
1/2 a lemon
1/2 a fruit (today I did mango because it was on sale)
Tumeric and Ginger
A touch of honey for sweetness if needed.
^ Blend (in blender!) everything in that order so that the smoothie does not turn out gritty.
Obviously you can add whatever you want to it. Sometimes I do avocado and chia seeds, sometimes I do protein powder. It just depends on the day, and what I have planned for my meals later on during the day. 🙂
I hope you try this recipe. I promise, you will not be disappointed! Even my two year old loves it. If you do try it, let me know what you thought! Or if you found any good things to add to it! 🙂
