Yummy Smoothie!

I have been wanting to try making a smoothie for a while now but hadn’t come up with a recipe yet. I was determined to come up with something today, and it turned out really good. Here is what I used:



1 Scoop Jillian Michaels Natural Whey Protein – Triple Chocolate

1 Gala Apple (not my favorite apple, but it’s all we had)

2 Tbsp Milled Flax Seed

1 Tbsp Coconut Oil

1 Tbsp Peanut Butter & Co. The Bee’s Knees (Peanut Butter with Honey)

8 Oz. Premier Protein Shake

After I got it all mixed up, I added some ice. At first all I tasted was the coconut, but as I drank it I would taste different ingredients with each sip. I intended to add cinnamon, but forgot to get it out, so I forgot to add it. Hopefully I’ll remember it next time. I left the peal on the apple, and I could tell it was there while I was drinking it, but it didn’t bother me. And the best part, it kept me full all night. I’m looking forward to making some more, different flavor smoothies once I get some more fruit. Here’s the finished product!



And here are the nutritional facts from what I figured out, but don’t hold me to it because it all depends on your specific brand of ingredients – 576 calories, 39 carbs, 30 fat, 43 protein and 12 fiber.

Perfect little accessory

I know, you’re shocked that I’m writing a blog post and overwhelmed with excitement and anticipation to see what I have to write about! Hopefully I won’t let you down (too much)!

Recently I was contacted by a new company called Active Accessories to review one of their products and I was super excited to check out what they have. They sent me their On-The-Go Accessory Pouch, and I was super excited to open it up and see how cute it is. Here is what the company had to say about it:

“Our On-The-Go Accessory Pouch is a versatile, chic clutch designed for females of all ages who are always “on the go”. I personally designed the Accessory Pouch to fill my own frequent need of a “fun and sporty looking” accessory holder to put my jewelry in when I go from work at my desk job to teaching classes at the gym or running outside. I kept losing an earring here and there and my jewelry always wound up at the bottom of my bag, so I decided to design a solution!”

I don’t personally wear too much jewelry, but I do sometimes wear a watch and it would fit perfectly in there. It’s the perfect size pouch for everything that you may need to carry into the gym or anywhere else you don’t want to have to carry your purse into. I t’s available in a few different colors including black, fuchsia, polk-a-dots, and pink and grey circles.  Here are a couple of pictures of my pouch:


The above picture is it closed up (obviously) and the below picture is the inside. The side where my thumb is is a little pocket and my iPhone 4 with the case on fit in there, a little snuggly, but it fit.


I haven’t used it yet, but I know that I’m going to love the convenience of having it when I go to the gym because I never have anywhere to put my keys when I take a class and with this I’ll have everything I need with me and it is small enough to not take up too much space, and also when I take a spin class it’s small enough that I could hang it from the handle bars of my bike and it wouldn’t get in the way and I won’t have to throw my keys on the floor and hope that no one steps on them. I’ll tell y’all more about it when I get a chance to use it. I hope that y’all will look into this product for yourself, or someone on your gift list. Here are the links for the company and also to Amazon, where you can get it for $14.95 for a limited time.

Yup that’s what’s been going on lately. I haven’t blogged because I don’t have anything good to blog about. I’ve exercised two days so far this week (yes I know it’s Thursday) and I’m not sure if I’ll have time to tomorrow either. My plan right now is to get after it this weekend. I’ve signed up for some virtual races and I’m planning on getting some of them done next week. I’m only in school (clinical) on Monday so the rest of my week is “free”, even though Thursday is Thanksgiving and that night through Saturday morning will be filled with A LOT of shopping, but my plan is to workout every day starting Saturday and then my rest day will probably be Friday. I plan on getting up early enough on Thursday to do one of my virtual races, so I can earn my turkey!! I’ve been gaining and losing the same couple of pounds the past few weeks and it’s time for me to recommit to this, make a plan, and stick to it. I’m going to make my grocery list to include foods that will work well with Weight Watchers and plan out my meals for the next week. I know that won’t work for Thanksgiving, but that’s only one day and I’m not going to let that one day determine how I eat the rest of the week. I have started doing push ups, squats and a plank every day. I started the push-ups on Tuesday with 10 and each day I’ll add one, and today I started the squats with 10 and I’ll do the same, adding one each day. The plank is just held as long as I can hold it. Here’s todays.

I set a new goal for myself and my weight loss. I graduate from nursing school on May 10, 2013 and I want to be at my goal weight to walk across that stage, so I need to get working and lose these last 62-65 pounds, so I’ll be celebrating two accomplishments that night, instead of one.

Counting down the days!!


On another note, look what I received yesterday!


I won these from Skinny Mom and I’m super excited to try each of the flavors. I tried the Ginger Snap today and it was pretty good, but the ginger was REALLY strong so remember that if you decide to try that flavor. The hubster tried the Chocolate Chip Brownie and he was not a fan, he said it tasted like an old fig newton. Not sure how he knows what an old fig newton tastes like, but I guess I won’t have to worry about sharing any more with him. I’ll let you all know how the rest of the flavors are. What I love about them is the ingredients list, it’s short and all natural, nothing extra added. The Ginger Snap ingredients are – ginger (duh), cloves, cinnamon, dates, almonds and pecans, and that’s it!! Can’t wait to try another flavor, but that’ll have to wait until tomorrow.

Well that’s what’s been happening with me. Too many excuses and not enough action. Time to make a change.
