Well today I did the unthinkable. I woke up at 5 am(thanks to me lovely alarm and an answer to my prayers in giving me motivation and determination...)and went to a 6am workout. It was awesome. It was just a strength training class. We did some pilates movements, some weights and the resistant bands. I left there feeling invigorated and motivated:)
It is an amazing day today. I thought I would share a recipe for a morning shake that I enjoy every day. I am doing the BFL and found that the shakes were very costly, so I have substituted them for this shake in the morning and a protein bar in the afternoon.(along with my other 4 meals...sometimes 3) I saw this recipe on Oprah one afternoon(with Dr. Oz) and found it on her website. It's really easy to make, but what's better is it's affordable. I bought all the ingredients at Save On More, and they were about $45...but they have lasted a couple of months. The only ingredients I have had to rebuy have been the Soy Protein and the Blueberries.
1 scoop(1/3 cup) Soy Protein( I just use a scoop from any of the Protein containers)
1/2 tbsp flax seed oil
1/4 cup blueberries
1/2 large ripe banana
1/2 tbsp. agave nectar (You can use honey, splenda... whatever sweetener you desire)
1 tsp. Psyllium husk
12 ounces of water
(a couple of ice cubes if you so desire...I never do...but you may)
Put all ingredients in the blender...shake...blend...and enjoy!!!
Last week I went to the dentist for my cleaning and was concerned about a "pocket" that has developed on my gumline. I've been watching it for a couple of months and it is not getting better. The dentist took an x-ray and apparently I need a ROOT CANAL...ugh...I haven't had many dental procedures so I'm hoping this isn't too painful. He said I could probably get "away" with not having it done(?) but recommended I do it....
I'm getting this done THIS AFTERNOON.
So on this lovely, sunny afternoon, while my "too hot for mama" husband is enjoying some time on the riverbank, I will be sitting nervously, white knuckled in a dentist's chair. Oh well....those are the breaks:)
Not much else to report. Anyhow I have a gazillion things to do today...
Hope you are all enjoying today!
