Healing Me


So remember I said I needed to get healthy?  Here's what I did with your advice.
1. I've tried to eat as little white sugar as possible.
2. I've tried to eat a minimum of 5 servings of fruit and vegetable a day.  Four of those I get in my daily Green Monster fruit smoothie
3. I've been walking 30-60 minutes everyday.  Even today, when a sinus infection has me feeling like crud, I still walked over an hour to get my medication. 

The results have been slow, but they ARE there.  My clothes are loose and my knees don't ache like usual.
Just thought you'd like to know.

Put THIS in your blender and drink it:
GREEN MONSTER
In the blender put
1 banana
a handful of blueberries & strawberries or any other fruit you have handy. Frozen is fine.
a handful of fresh spinach - trust me you won't taste it.
a serving of vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 cup milk or soy milk or almond milk
4-5 ice cubes

What SkylersDad said!! And if my Cuisinart food process will cooperate with the ice cubes, I will give that green monster a try. I am blenderless.

I need to get walking but something always comes up to offer me a lame excuse.

Good for you! For me, exercise is like Prozac. I feel so much better when I make myself move...No matter how badly I just want to stay in bed beforehand.

That drink sounds amazing.

Congratulations Margaret! You are in inspiration. Truly. We all have things we should do to be healthier, and it's hard to get motivated to start and keep it up. You are a great example to all of us!
