Super Green Protein Smoothie

Super Green Protein Smoothie

I go in smoothie phases, sometimes I will have a liquid lunch every single day for a few weeks – I get obsessed. And then one day my mood changes and I won’t have another smoothie for weeks, or even a couple of months.

When I’m on a smoothie kick I almost always make some version of a green smoothie. I play around with the ingredients, but I almost always end up throwing in the equivalent of a medium size salad into the blender with all the other ingredients 🙂 I know it doesn’t exactly sound delicious, but with all the other tasty ingredients in there, it works. Trust me! Continue reading “Super Green Protein Smoothie”

The last while I’ve been gravitating more toward relaxing things, things that don’t stress and tire my body as much as my daily (well, almost daily) heavy weight training & cardio workouts.

I’m all for leftovers but sometimes I don’t like eating the exact same thing I had the day before – too boring.

Get it done, quick.

Get it done, quick.

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a lovely long weekend! Mine was fairly routine, busy but it felt productive. I got a few workouts in, took the kids to the park so they could play all their sports and burn off some energy, Luke got a kite for his birthday so I promised him we would go fly the thing.  I also worked on the blog and on Saturday night I motivated myself to go through and purged/organize my kitchen cupboards. My social life is onnnnn fire 🙈lol Continue reading “Get it done, quick.”
