I need a cheese burger…

I have been complaining a lot about my weight lately but realized I wasn’t actually doing anything about it. So, this week I finally started putting my words into actions. I’m not going on a diet or anything, I just decided I need to eat more healthy foods throughout the day and try to get some type of exercise daily.

This week I’ve been making green smoothies because I’ve been hearing about them a lot by other bloggers.

This week, the smoothies have consisted of:

  • 1 apple
  • 1 banana
  • handful of strawberries
  • 1/3 cup of yogurt
  • 1/2 cup of pebbled ice
  • large handful of spinach
  • a little bit of skim milk (didn’t measure it out)

The first smoothie I used plain greek yogurt. Bad idea. Today I used nonfat strawberry. Much better. Anyway, I’m very excited to keep making these and finally start eating some veggies and fruits every day.

In addition to the smoothies, I’ve been freezing some yogurt for a little treat at night. So, instead of eating the chocolate ice-cream that is in the freezer, I’ve found a better solution.

And last but not least, I decided to stop eating pistachios (because they cost SO much) and instead, eat kale chips. I’m kind of obsessed with them. I’m guessing there’s not much nutritional value after you bake them because they really shrivel up, but I’m sure they’re better for you than cookies, popcorn, or goldfish. Tonight I roasted a bunch of spinach too. It tasted pretty good but left a weird smell in the air.

How am I feeling? Hungry. Haha… it’s true, but I have noticed how eating healthier has made me want to exercise as well! Thankfully we have had great weather this week and Eva likes riding in the stroller, so I’ve gone on long walks every day. (My mom is probably crying with excitement right now.)

Oh and a side story, I had T.J. pull out the toasted spinach for me in the oven and he said, “Can you imagine if Eva was older with some friends over – they asked you for a snack and you gave them cooked spinach? She wouldn’t have any friends!”

Sad. But probably true.
