Day 2 of Smoothie challenge

Hi ALL!  Just a few thoughts for today and then I’ll be packing some more!  I started a 1 week smoothie challenge and I’m on Day 2!!  I laugh when inventors of diets claim you will not be hungry!  Anytime you change what you normally eat and CUT out a LOT of what you typically eat, you’re going to be hungry.  Or course you can eat as many vegetables as you’d like, but how many vegetables can you really eat!!  It’s actually going pretty good.  Here is a picture of my yummy breakfast this morning!

I stopped my Wednesday workouts with the girls at the church for a little while.  I found an at home workout online though that looked GREAT!!  Really good blog too, blondeponytail.com.  I think I’ll try it!  I’d do the whole thing at least twice.

Today is also my baby sister’s birthday!!  She lives in Connecticut and I never see her ):  I wish I could teleport myself back to her today!!  Here we are on the beach when I was about 19?  And a recent photo of me visiting her a few years ago!!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIS!!!  She told me today she was jamming out to HEART and that I was the one that gave her the interior decorating bug!  We used to listen to Heart together and look at  Architectural Digest magazine!!  What fun!

  1. Awww, thanks, Hol! What a nice sister I have! I wish you could teleport back here, too! (Sorry, I’ve been a little behind on reading my favorite blogs lately, and I didn’t see your cute post before!). Love you and miss you!
