At the beginning of the year, I was super motivated to lose some weight before we went on Bryan’s company trip to Jamaica. I did great – I met my goal and got back to my ‘normal-heavy’ weight and out of the ‘oh crap, it is not normal for me to be this heavy!’ range. But on the trip, I ate and drank all I wanted. Then the week after the trip is dubbed ‘feast week’ – as in, the annual beach trip is over, now we can eat lots of junk. And since then (for the last month now!), I keep saying to myself that next week I’ll start being healthy again. Well I finally stepped on the scale again, and that was plenty of motivation to make me quit procrastinating (eek!!). So this week, finally, I’m bringing healthy back – for good this time!
For one thing, we’ve jumped on the green smoothie bandwagon. Gotta admit – I am totally shocked Bryan likes these too! I’d expect the color alone to frighten him away from trying a sip, but he reluctantly gave it a try, and he’s hooked. If you’re still skeptical that they actually taste good, let my vegetable-hating husband be a testament to how delicious they are!
