Living Green....

Friday, November 02, 2012

Living Green.... is free and it's a good thing, and when you go green, you go clean. Thatís how I feel about my green journey. Living with green ďfoodsĒ and other foods as well is about how you choose to balance your life. I love drinking my green smoothies, and I have not had anything green in a few days, but my weight is still good. This smoothie Iím drinking has. Spinach & Mangos with cinnamon & ginger with 3 heaping scoops of ground soy beans for protein. Itís so good. I made 40oz and Iím only going to drink 20oz tonight, and Iíll have whatís left in the morning. Green Smoothies are so good and good for my body.

I think adding more green smoothies have really helped with the weight loss this week. Everyone says. No! You are just moving more, itís not the movement Iíve been doing. That has something to do with it, but I think the green smoothies are helping out too. I donít care what they think. I hold onto my smoothiesí truth, and how good they are for my body. I mean, itís really easy to get in all the veggies and fruit servings I need this way, and I donít have to stress either. You knowÖ The stresses of having this or having that ĖI just load the blender up and start blending, and this is very healthy for me. I love having them, and I donít think my life would be the same without them. Iíve tried a few times to eat badly, but let me tell you. I get sick when I do it Ėbut I always bounce back.

When I eat badÖ I have cramps ďthatísĒ the first warning sign I get, and I get it after a few bites maybe ďmoreĒ it depends on what Iím eating. So I have to be very careful of what I place in my mouth. Nothing is wrong with that. It helps me stay more balanced with my eating nowadays. I canít brush off the warning signs anymore.
I donít even have that same passion for foods or over eating them like I once did. Now, I can binge eat at times, but the binge isnít a binge like the ones Iíve had in the past. A few bites too many and Iím stuffed. My husband and I pretty much count my bites as my stopping point. 12 to 16 bites and Iím fine with that.

Now, Iím learning, and I feel pretty good about what Iíve been learning over the past few weeks. My daughter boyfriend came over, and he hasnít seen me all summer long, and my daughter and him was on the ďoutsĒ, and he said. MAMA! He calls me that. Youíre getting smaller and I goÖ Thank you baby! That was so sweet. People are noticing the loss. My husband aunts saw me in the store, and they noticed, and said. Whatís going on with you, Missy? And that felt good too. They call me Missy, and I love the nickname too.

Iím happy.
I love smoothies, and I love drinking them for my health. I feel young and energized. I walked 145minutes with my mom, and we loved the walk, we didnít go far like we did yesterday, but we did go far enough to get a good walk in. We are making up for the lost time this week due to the cold, and thatís great too.

Enjoy the rest of your night. I just wanted you all to know. I love smoothies, and I love feeling good.
