I felt so accomplished when Thanksgiving went by without a single pound of weight gain. I think it really helped that Mike and I had a triathlon to train for the week after, and also the fact that we ran a 5k on the day of Thanksgiving. We also went to a buffet instead of having the post Thanksgiving day food laying around the house. Then Christmas and New Years happened…
It could have been the cookies, the egg nog, cinnamon rolls, and other sinful treats that pretty much ruined any momentum we had to our diet. Both Mike and I have weighed in this week and have gotten to the “angry phase” of dieting where you are so mad at yourself for getting to where you are.
Needless to say, we have been trying to eat right all week and working out every single day! I have been making smoothies left and right! Here is my favorite recipe:
Liz’s Awesome Blueberry Smoothie
1/2-1/4 c of almond milk
1/4 c spinach
1/4 c blueberries
1/4 c yogurt
Sonic ice (2.49 a bag)
add chia seeds for more substance
We are loving the Sonic ice! It blends so much better and works well with small blenders (like the Baby Bullet…don’t hate).
I tried this treadmill workout today from www.fitsugar.com. Loving the treadmill workouts lately!
