Only in New England can it be 70 degrees one day, and then, the day after the first day of spring, snow! I mean, I guess since we haven’t seen snow in so long I should’t complain and it is not like it’s sticking, but come on!
Operation Breakfast Smoothie was mildly successful today.
By mildly successful I mean it was drinkable.
I made it with 1 frozen banana, 1 cup skim milk, a handful of ice (which DID not even become blended at all), and a scoop of chocolate Shakeology.
It tasted like a freezer-burned fudgesicle and had the consistency of warm, melted ice cream.
Not very refreshing but….
I drank it all and was completely satisfied until mid-morning.
Shakeology claims to be “The Healthiest Meal of the Day” and it actually helped my friend Meghan lose over 100 pounds last year by replacing one meal of snack with a shake each day, and of course eating right and exercise!
By the end of week four I should expect:
- improved digestion and regularity
- reduced cravings (man is this one chocolatey shake)
- increased energy and stamina
- lost weight
- improved mental clarity
I really wanted to try it out as a healthy snack choice. If I replaced a meal with it I have a feeling I would drop dead in Crossfit 😉
I love that it came with a monthly calendar that gave daily suggestions for how to create different shakes!
Since I am going into my second month at Crossfit and I am giving Shakeology a try, I am going to be taking some measurements tonight to track my progress at the end of April. I am not going to be a slave to the scale, I don’t even own one, but taking measurements will help me track my progress. I can’t wait to see what one month will bring.
- Shakeology once a day for snack
- Crossfit 3-4 days a week
- Running 3-4 days a week
I guess once I figure out how to blend things together appropriately I will be golden! All you smoothie makers out there (Starbucks that includes you) make it look so easy. Or maybe I am a moron?!
Do you have any fitness or health goals for this month??
Lunch was delish so I must share it with you. I made a shredded chicken sandwich with lettuce, and an individual string cheese. Oh, and the best part was the tortilla.
It was perfectly spicy.
See what I mean? Yum!
Tonight I have Crossfit. The WOD is titled “Filthy Fifty”. Sounds intriguing, yeah?!
Do you have any smoothie advice for me? I am dying over here trying to perfect my smoothie skills!
