I am prepared to give an honest report of the last two weeks:
1. Drink at least 16 oz. of green smoothie a day
I was doing so great until this past weekend. I had one every day up to Saturday and Sunday. I have missed two days so far of drinking a green smoothie. I find the weekends are harder for me to stay on track. I think it is because we get out of our everyday routine. I also let my fridge get quite bare and I find it harder to make my smoothies if I don't have a well stocked fridge.
2. Do some sort of activity for 15 minutes ever day.
Nailed this one so far. It really helps that I walk Dylan to and from school, so if I get no other exercise the rest of the day I at least got that. On the weekends I get a little walk in or ride my bike.
3. Add a salad with lunch or dinner.
Once again, so good until the weekend. I think I have had a salad at least once, sometimes twice a day up until this weekend. Once again, out of routine and an empty fridge. However, I can now manage a salad without ANY salad dressing. :)
4. Stop drinking pop.
I didn't drink soda in the first place. Check!!!
5. Cut out all white sugar.
I have failed here. The first couple of weeks I was doing so good. Then I watched the boys and a couple other cuties so Garth could go to a movie and he brought me back an iced mocha. I gave in. I am so weak I know. Other than that I have managed to go to an ice cream social, birthday party, and MOPS meetings and say NO to all the yummy looking sugar-filled treats.
So there you have it. Today is a new day and I have already downed my green smoothie for the day. I am hoping to get to Costco today for bulk fruits and veggies. I also need to find something to snack on to keep those sugar cravings at bay.
I hope you are having better success than me. Stick with it and the benefits will so out-weight that delicious iced mocha you are craving - OR at least that is what they tell me. :)
