my first green monster!

Monday, September 12, 2011

broke down yesterday and used the credit card to buy groceries for the next two weeks. it was either that or survive on top ramen and who knows what. i made a menu for two weeks and bought only what was on my list and made good choices.

i'm trying out new breakfasts cause i get too hungry before lunch at work and i don't have enough time to snack. i decided to try out a green monster. if you don't know what this is, it's a smoothie made with tons of spinach and then other stuff that you can add. www.greenmonstermovement
check out the website to learn more and try different recipes. it may sound gross, but it isn't. tasted mostly like bananas. i'm going to try the blueberry version tomorrow. i had two peaches at 10, cause i was starting to get hungry and the peaches were getting too ripe. i didn't work today, so tomorrow will be the real test, but i'm confident this will work out for me. though i'm going to add a whole wheat english muffin to breakfast tomorrow since i'll be eating earlier and having lunch later.

the frothiness on top kind of bothered me, so i would prefer a straw, but what do you do?

i'm working on following weight watchers again. it's tough when you can't afford the food, but i think i'm going to be okay for now. luckily the new system has 0 point values for most fruits and veggies, that so bothered me on the old version. the green monster really helps since the milk is the only point value.

with that in mind i made a huge salad for lunch with some left over pork ribs i had from last night. it was soooo good! blue cheese and a parmesan dressing made it really tasty!

i don't normally take pics of my food, but since i wanted one of the green monster and the camera was still there at lunch i figured what the heck.

i'm feeling really good right now and i hope this feeling can last so i can keep this motivation going. i'm going to conquer fall and winter and look amazing come spring!

    You can try keeping some almonds at your desk to snack on, just make sure you don't eat over an ounce. You salad looks yummy!
