I've mentioned a few times that I've been working on my fitness. I have been trying to tone up and lose weight for a while now and it's definitely been a challenge to lose weight since I turned 30. Luckily I've stayed at about the same weight for a while and have been able to eat healthy but also splurge without having any impact on me physically. Or at least on the outside image. So I've gotten a bit more serious. I started 30 day shred and finished that (I owe you my results) and mid way through my 30 day shred program I decided to start running again. I mentioned this has been the only way I've ever lost weight. And though I hate to run, it's an awesome activity for my weight loss as well as for my internal health (read: lung capacity).
I don't eat for about 2-3 hours prior to a run because vomiting while running doesn't sound all that exciting. So when I'm done running I need to nutrition but don't want to eat anything too heavy immediately after a run. I'm a big fan of smoothies and this weekend made a great one with both fruits & veggies as well as protein & fiber. It was tasty!
Green Power Smoothie
3/4 cup fresh spinach
handful of ice
Blend on low & immediately switch to high until smooth.
I shared the rest of my pear & banana with Addie, but if you don't have anyone to share the leftovers with, round it all up to a full banana & pear and full cup spinach and a little more than a handful of ice. You'll just have a little extra smoothie. Enjoy!
