Into my Kitchen Aid blender went :
1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/4 cup Organic Vanilla Yogurt
2 tbsp Salba
1 scoop Vegan Smoothie Infusion
5 Frozen Strawberries
1/2 Cup Frozen Blueberries
Drizzle of Agave Syrup
Gave that a quick spin around and poured it into a nice frosty mug....YUMMY but a bit too thick. Next time I will add a bit more almond milk. I am not sure what makes it so thick, the vegan mix or the salba??
Anyways I am sure I won't be hungry for a while after that
I went and bought the agave syrup to replace the splenda I have been using in my coffee in the mornings. I have been eating so well the past few weeks,and realized this morning I needed to break free from the splenda too.
Here is a food day in the life of Conny:
3 cups of coffee in one gigantic mug (please be aware this is my only coffee of the day)
1 cup of organic rice puffs with almond milk and 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries on top
1 golden delicious apple
2 slices of carrot spelt bread
4 ounces tuna with a bit of mayo and green onion
Mid afternoon snack: (I knew I was going to be having a late supper)
5 sesame rice crakers
8 homemade roasted almonds
I am also on my last water bottle, which will bring me to 10 glasses for the day.
I am thinking not great on the veggies today, but hoping that what was in the Vegan Smoothie Infusion will partly make that up.
One of the biggest changes since I started eating healthy, is that I have given up diet grapefruit pop. I was addicted and drank almost a 2 litre a day. I really think since I gave it up, it has taken away my night snacking and the craving for chips/popcorn crackers etc.
I just want to leave you with a funny story about my C25k run yesterday. As you might have read I have started running on a trail near my home. I peed before I left the house, but after my second run, I knew I really,really had to go again.(remember too I have had 4 kids). Since I was on the trail I took the chance....I looked ahead...nobody in site.....I looked behind.....nobody in site. I stepped two feet off the trail and with my lily white butt facing the direction I was running I peed......and while I was looking at the direction I had just come from, with my panties and capris around my ankles, doesn't a guy on a bike go by.......I promise you this.....I will never wear the same outfit I wore yesterday to run in, for fear of seeing this man again and having him recognize me or at least my ass!!!!
I am getting a bit nervous about being on vacation and keeping up the great eating. I just feel so determined this time that I
Fourty- five with fourty- five pounds to lose.....I'm on my way!!
