So…. we’ve got about 26 days!
26 days until we’re on a plane headed to Hawaii!! I’m sorry, I just can’t contain myself! I’m jumping around like a crazy person and researching things to do there like my life depends on it haha. I swear I think that if Thomas sees me watching another YouTube video on Oahu he’s going to go crazy. We’ve had a little bump in our accommodation plans but we’re working on smoothing all of that out 🙂
I can’t help it, I can’t help it! I get obsessed when it comes to trip planning. It’s really hard to NOT talk about it, but I’ve been trying to keep my lips closed because it seems that some people around here do get a little mad when you’re overly happy and it’s because of an awesome upcoming trip that they’re not going on. Boooo.
With that being said, I’ve got 26 days to continue to work on my gym time and good eating 🙂 I’ve been sick since the 1st. Yep, I’ve literally not been healthy one day this whole year 😉 But I’m working on kicking this yuckiess in the rear! I’m actually missing the gym a bit and I’m ready to be back. I just haven’t been back yet because I’m thinking….gym+sickness+feeling weak+coughing….. not the best combo.
Hopefully next week I’ll be back! Maybe by then all of the “I’m going to the gym” New Year Resolutions people will be gone. That’s wrong to say, isn’t it. Bad me!
Speaking of New Year Resolutions, did you make any? I didn’t make a single one. I barely made it to see the ball drop! What’s wrong with me. I feel like I’m getting old….
But back to kicking this yuck in the rear, I’ve been trying to keep hydrated and keep up with eating a drinking lots of fresh fruits.
Thomas got me a NINJA blender and I’ve been in smoothie heaven! My favorite smoothie ever is a Strawberry Banana Smoothie!
I use to get them from a place here called Juice Moose when I was in college. I loved it and I pretty much went there almost every other day for lunch. I mean really, Strawberry Banana Smoothie is probably the best smoothie flavor there is….. unless your like Thomas and dislike strawberries…. or like his grandma and dislike bananas…. well then I suppose you wouldn’t think that the Strawberry Banana Smoothie is the best. But it’s the best to me 🙂
I use about 1/2 cup of sliced strawberries, 1 sliced banana, 1/2 cup vanilla Greek Yogurt and about 1/2 cup of Apple Juice for my smoothie.
For the apple juice , since I’m trying to stick to my good food trends, I used this Simple Apple – Apple Juice. I hear stories that it’s not good for you and I hear stories that it is good for you.
I swear all of this eating healthy stuff can really make your brain spin. I suppose now though that I have the NINJA I could make my own…maybe. That thing would probably blend apples so quickly that it could make juice haha.
But until I embark on that journey of juice making, I’ll just stick to the smaller ingredients lists on packages. In the stores around here, this Apple Juice was the only juice that was not packed to the rim with sugar and other junk.
I guess my best bet would be to go down to Whole Foods, but to be honest I don’t. I barely have the time to go to the Food Lion 10 minutes away for groceries….. an hour trip both way for Whole Foods happens once in a blue moon.
Also my NINJA blender came with these individual cups too; I make my smoothies in those instead of the giant cup.
So, What’s your favorite Smoothie Flavor? Do you make them at home or do you have a Juice Bar close by?
