Not an Option

I tried a new smoothie this morning!

I made a strawberry and pineapple smoothie with spinach for breakfast this morning. It consisted of about 1 cup of sliced strawberries, 1 cup of cubed pineapple, 1 cup of spinach and a cup of crushed ice. It was sweet, but not too sweet. I probably would have added some milk if we hadn't run out last night. Grocery shopping in definitely in order for tonight!

  1. Hi Kay, Eliza here from Happify. Love your blog. One of the gals in my Silver & Grace community lost over 100 lbs. It can be done. You go, girl!!!

  2. I moved my treadmill into my bedroom because my son said my running was waking him up to early.. So I basically can crawl out of bed and onto it now!! Just hit start!! So my goal for this week is 30 minutes on the treadmill and two workouts with Jillian on DVD!! We can do this!!
