Magic Bullet etc

Monday, September 10, 2012

Hi sparkers,

So I recently bought an Aldi brand Magic Bullet type of smoothie machine for about $15. I have to say that I love it so far! I always hear about people making smoothies but whenever I make then in the traditional blender I end up just wasting a lot of it because I love stuffing that blender till it's completely full. This magic bullet knockoff is wonderful because I put in what I need for a single serving smoothie. So this morning I made a smoothie with vanilla greek yogurt by Cabot (the proceeds go to REAL farmers, I love that), spinach, strawberries, a banana, and oats. It was delicious and probably had a good number of calories. So overall, I'm excited to smoothie it up.

Also, in other semi culinary news, I made kale chips the other day. For some reason I kept hearing about this kale vegetable and how good it was for you. It is really cheap to buy and easy to make the chips. I added too much olive oil to them so one batch was semi soggy, but overall they were alright. I'm thinking a better alternative is just to smoothie that kale up!

Exercise-wise, today was a nice day. I went to the gym and took a class. The class kicked my butt. By the end of the class I was, as some would describe, a hot mess. Literally, I was all sweaty, red-faced, hair all over the place, and smelly. That's how I knew I actually got a workout. The plan for tomorrow is to also attend a gym class.

Overall today was a pretty good health day. I probably drank too much coffee (read: I did drink way too much coffee) with that artificial sweetner but tomorrow is another day. Actually it's close to midnight, so in a few minutes it will be another day. The problem is that I drank coffee at night so I'll be up. Hopefully I will be reading articles for school instead of endlessly reading SP blog posts (which I love to read!).

I think that I would be happy in a public health type of job in the future. I just don't know what exactly people employed in the public health sector do or what their job titles are exactly. I have one more year of schooling before I will officially be done with my education at the college level. That scares me. Even though I took a year off before graduate school, I dislike the idea of not being able to stay at a university and keep on learning. I'm saying this now because I don't have any papers to write at this moment.

Keep on sparking sparkers.

    I used to share one of those with my ex but after we broke up he kept it lol. Now, I'm just trying to lose about 15Lbs and then incorporate juicing in my nutrition. Have fun with your smoothies machine

    I love my magic bullet and I make a great morning smoothie with a green apple, 2/3 c. steamed kale, 1/2 c. cucumber, and 1 stalk celery. I actually strain the froth off because it gets so frothy but it is really great tasting and really good for us I bet!
