Going Green…Smoothie Style

Since I've had little DMac (I hope to get more into my pregnancy fitness and other things later).  I’ve definitely been lacking on fitness, nutrition, and some days... showering (super confession time apparently).

Don't let the color scare you!

In an effort to make some baby steps towards better health for the whole family, the hubs and I decided to do green smoothies as our first step.  This has a two-fold purpose.  One, no matter what, we’ll have gotten some fruits and veggies in for the day.  Two, I find it’s a lot easier to continue to make good choices throughout the day if that’s what I start my day with.  We've been going strong for 8 days in a row now and my husband (who is the worse eater, even though I’m nowhere near innocent!) already says he feels a little better!  I do some of my own recipes and I also joined up on the 30 day green smoothie challenge on http://simplegreensmoothies.com/.  They send you 5 new recipes each week of the challenge along with a shopping list, and some of the recipes are ones I never would have thought of putting together, so it really helps when you get in a smoothie rut!  I think they do about 4 live challenges a year, plus they have lots of delicious looking recipes on their site.  If you are looking for a way to incorporate some fruits and leafy greens or just want to try something new, I highly recommend trying them out!  I’ll try to post some recipes as we go along as well!

Any green smoothie lovers out there?

New Year, New Baby, New Me

So I’ve really been anxious to get back to the blogging game, but since July this little guy has been taking all my time!


I’m still trying to figure out how to balance all the things I want to do like sleep  get back in shape with how to best take care of my little guy and working full time, but one thing I like about putting my goals on the internet is the feeling of accountability, even if I’m the only one who reads it!
I’m hoping to ease back into blogging, so posts will start out short and sweet.

Any life balance advice?

Happy New Year!
