Back On Track & An AWESOME Smoothie

I’m back on track and it feels AMAZING!  High-Five for me! I have a plan in place, and I’m going to stick to it.  I am going to track EVERYTHING (healthy and not so healthy) until my birthday on March 12th.  This is going to be a challenge for me because I’ve always had a “cheat day”…  It was never a “cheat meal” and I feel by doing that, I was hindering my weight loss, big time.  I was also allowing my brain and body to slowly get comfortable to the things I shouldn’t have been eating, and by not tracking for a whole day, I wasn’t accountable for what was going into my body  and I don’t want that this time around.  I want it to be different. 

Let’s talk about smoothies…  I see so many people talk about them, but they are always so high in points.  I don’t believe in drinking anything (no matter how yummy it may be) that will cost me 9 and 10 Points+ for one drink.  I just couldn’t wrap my brain around doing that, so I created a WONDERFUL smoothie for 6 Points+.  It’s 24oz (give or take) of pure AWESOMENESS!  It taste good, and it’s very filling!  If you like smoothies, you gotta try this.  I’m telling you, you’ll fall in love!

“Silk Mango Peachy Goodness”
Don't mind the cup... I was
almost done with it before
I realized PICTURE! :)
½ Cup of Silk Fruit an Protein Mango Peach Juice
I Whole Banana
½ Cup of Strawberries

Blend everything up in a blender, sit back, relax and enjoy heaven!  Seriously…  If you haven’t tried this before, DO IT.  You won’t be sad.

Until Next time, take care and go make that smoothie!
