The Return of the Smoothie

 

Another week has begun! Sadly, it’s not a sunny one here. It is gloomy and HUMID. 99% to be exact. YUCK! I want to go run, but I also would like to be able to breathe thank you! I do plan on getting out there this evening with Bobby after he gets home from work, so I will do my 6 pack in 6 weeks video this morning.

This weekend was a good one. Saturday, I told you that I was two months away from vacation! Bobby and I spent the better part of the day unpacking. I have done 90% of the unpacking, but there are just certain things I can’t lift, don’t know where he wants them to go, etc. We were busy last weekend but finally got some time on Saturday. My mom told me we would feel better about unpacking once we could pull a car in the garage, so that was my goal on Saturday.

Originally we wanted to put BOTH cars in the garage, but Bobby decided since our YMCA wouldn’t be open until September, he wanted to set his weight bench up. We also have a golf cart that takes up a lot of room. So, we decided Francis the 4runner was going to have to stay in the driveway, while my 4runner got to sleep in the garage. It took about 5 hours but we did it!

I know it’s not perfect but it will do for now! We did a little weed pulling, and random yard work. Look, we finally got our private residence sign! With our neighborhood being very new, and the fact that they do have model homes you can go in, all the residents have these signs so people don’t just come on in!

We went to our new favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner. I can’t get over these cute pitchers you drink out of!

Yesterday, we went to church and lunch then came home and crashed! Bobby slept for over two hours! We relaxed the rest of the night, just as you should on a Sunday!

Now, onto this morning! I have said before that in the four months I stayed with my parents, I got addicted to coffee thanks to this.

Then when I got my own, I started drinking coffee every morning, which is NOT a habit I wanted to get into. So, now that the weather is getting nice, I decided today to have my first smoothie of the spring! I tried a pre packaged/portioned strawberry banana one made by Jamba juice that I got at Target. All you do is add apple juice (well, and I added protein powder!) it’s been an hour and I am ok…still awake and no headache…yet….we will see how it goes!

I have a deep love of smoothies. Remember these posts?

As you can see, I love smoothies! But, I hate them in the winter because I hate being cold, so today was the day (with 99% humidity…) that I decided to make my first one of the spring! Hopefully I will be throwing these in a couple of times a week instead of coffee.

QOTD: what is your favorite kind of smoothie?

Comments

  1. I am currently enjoying my FAVORITE smoothie (i know you feel about the cold thing though) – chocolate Shakeology blended with a tsp of Peanut Butter, Ice & water. YUM… (but i’m still cold!!!)

  2. Yoplait makes a frozen smoothie mix that has real fruit in it (in the frozen fruit section of the grocery store) that you add milk to that’s also really yummy. I try to keep a couple packages (different flavors) in the freezer for when I need a “fix.”

    • yup! thats what started my obsession two years ago, those dang yoplait ones! one of the smoothie posts i linked to talks about them. its just enough for me and my husband to have one! my fav is the strawberry banana. :)

  3. I love the mini pitchers!

  4. The mini pitchers are hilarious!

    I love strawberry smoothies with just about anything but pineapple in them. Yuck. I hate pineapple.

  5. How fun to live in such a new neighborhood! Glad you have a way to keep the random browsers out!

  6. Aww why are you breaking up with coffee? It’s my favorite habit ;) I tried to give it up once and I missed it too much so I went back. I hope you’re stronger than I am!

  7. That sweet tea picture is the CUTEST!!! :0) Yay for being able to fit your car in the garage AND for smoothies! It sounds yummy! :0)
