Yep that’s right, I love them! I’ve been making a green smoothie consistently for about a week and a half now and I look forward to having it everyday–yesterday I made TWO! Just knowing how beneficial the mix of veggies and fruit is to my health makes me feel so good about drinking them. I know that many days would go by and I wouldn’t be getting anywhere near the amount of servings I need per day unless I made these–I have a tendency to not include enough into my diet.
The only thing is that I’ve only made 1 kind of smoothie so far
- Almond Milk
I obviously know that I could put more in, I just don’t know any good mixes or what veggies and fruit are more beneficial to include. What’s better? Kale or Spinach? And is it good to eat that many bananas? What other fruits would go well in the mix? Should I be using Almond Milk or Water? So many questions about this 1 drink! I know that I like the mix I’ve already made, I just want to know if I should be adding more to it!?!
I’m finally starting to feel back to normal today after our mini 4th of July vaca! I just get into such a funk and it took ALL of me to get my butt up yesterday and go to the gym–I did NOT want to go! Luckily I did and it as always, made me feel so much better! I tried to do my usual and ended up:
- 17 min walking on treadmill incline-speed 4.0
- 10 min. on bike
- 3 sets of tricep pulldowns
- 3 sets of bicep curls
- 3 sets of shoulder exercises
I did some other exercises that the trainer wanted me to incorporate into my routine and I’m getting used to those finally–also trying to increase the amount of weight I’ve been using which has been pretty successful!
I’m not sure if I’m going to make it to the gym tonight, I have my 1st test of the summer semester tonight so I might focus on just that and try some more online yoga!
