LIVE, LAUGH AND LOVE!

I have always enjoyed an active life; however, after turning 50 the weight starting sticking. I gained over 25 pounds within 12 months. I knew I needed to make some major changes to stop the weight gain. So, I joined this site to talk to like minded people fighting the battle of the bulge. I plan to do whatever it takes to lose 50 pounds, radically changing my diet, regular exercise, personal trainer, etc.
I know I can do it!

Let's keep moving together in 2014!

emoticon Happy belated birthday. I'm so sorry I missed it. My smoothie has 1/2 cup of oatmeal, two handfuls of spinach, half of a cucumber, one long celery stalk, frozen banana, 1/2 cup of frozen mixed fruit and ice water. The fruit do not have to be frozen but I love my smoothie cold. I sometimes add whey protein but not in the one I had today. I'm trying new recipes also but I love the taste of this one. Thank you so much for viewing the vlog. We can do this....it's good to have friends to do it with me. emoticon emoticon

Yes, great minds think alike.. lol It's funny because another spark friend was talking about steamers and then I come here and the last blog you did was about steamers. Kind of confirm in my head that I need to go get one. Of course I will do a video when I make my first dish. LOL Hope you enjoyed the smoothie. Here's to our healthy juicing and smoothie lifestyle! emoticon
