Good morning and happy (Raw) Wednesday!
For those of you that watched the season finale of The Biggest Loser last night, could you ever believe it?! Everyone looked GREAT and I couldn’t get over the three finalists. It just proves that you can do anything you set your mind to. It IS possible to lose weight and get healthy but it take a lot of hard work and dedication. I’m pretty sure all those people gave it 115% every day and that’s how they saw results. Amazing.
This morning to kick off Raw Wednesday, I made a raw protein shake for breakfast! I used all of the below:
Sun warrior protein powder, frozen banana, mango, ground flax and raw almond butter….blended all up in Vita Mix with 1 cup water and a few ice cubes to produce this:
It was okay. I’m mad it wasn’t awesome but this mango was on its waaay last leg and I was about to throw it today because its been sitting in the fridge for, um, 2 weeks. I know, I know…..oh well, at least I didn’t waste food! It was pretty filling because of the protein powder and almond butter so we shall see if it does its job and keeps me full!
The only problem with smoothies and shakes is that they make me really really COLD. I’m naturally a cold person (always wearing sweatshirts in the grocery store) and right now I’m bundled up in my super soft robe and drinking this peppermint tea to warm up—
Don’t you love my cute Anthro saucer?! I do.
Today is officially my “rest day” from working out and I know my body needs it after so many days of running, spinning and yoga. I have to remind myself to rest these days because I have the TIME to exercise and it helps take my mind off things. Today instead I am writing, grocery shopping, making the fabulous raw lunch I’ve had planned and going to the grief counselor. Woohoo.
Hope everyone has a great morning—see you in a bit!
