Work BFF (let’s call her Melissa): Takes sip of my green smoothie. “This would be so much better with kiwi in it”
Me: “Yeah, I know, but last night I was too lazy to peel and slice them so I made them with peaches instead.”
Melissa: “Uh…Peel them? Why don’t you just scoop it out?”
Me: *EPIPHANY* “Scoop them out?!?!? WHAT IS THIS PHILOSOPHICAL MUMBO JUMBO YOU SPEAK?!?!”
….just kidding. Best Idea ever. Can’t believe I didn’t think of this sooner. I did it tonight. Yay for yummy smoothies.
Okay so maybe not my BEST Smoothie, but still pretty darn amazing. 1 down, 1/2 of one to go…
I was expecting that giving up sugar (my kryptonite) would be the hardest part…and I must admit I had a moment of weakness and had a hot chocolate. Oopsies. BUT other than that i’ve been good. I feel so light and energized.
I don’t weigh myself, and haven’t been expecting or trying to lose weight, but I sort of wish I’d taken my measurements because my stomach has gotten flatter and I suspect i’ve lost an inch or 2. Next time I do this, I’ll take measurements and compare.
Today, like most days, I had a clumsy moment and dropped my smoothie bottle as I was trying to put the cap back on top. THIS is what happened…Luckily the bottle was empty and this was just what was hiding in the top.
As I was finishing up the day, my manager stopped by and dropped off some goodies. Everyone else was eating shortbreads, chocolates filled with baileys and whiskey, peppermint bark and I get these…Yay!
I know this is probably dumb, but does it bother anyone else when companies feel the need to advertise a product as being Wheat Free AND Gluten free or Vegan AND Dairy/Egg Free? A product can be wheat free without being gluten free but it can’t be gluten free and contain wheat. Same goes for Dairy/Eggs and vegan. So why not just say Gluten free and Vegan?
Advertisement is ridiculous. It’s sort of like how I sometimes buy things based on the wrapper because one is prettier than the other. There is an organic Market that I frequent and sometimes i’ll stand and look at their selection of vegan/gluten free protein bars and somehow always get sucked in by the one with the cute photo or the shiny pink paper. Even tho I know better. *Shakes head*
Next week I will let you know if these cookies are any good…
