Green Smoothie Goodness

As summer steadily approaches I feel the need to get a little healthier and tighter.  Work out videos with Jillian Michaels have begun and a regimented diet has followed.  Inches are starting to decrease and there seems to be a little bump on my bicep that I can only assume (or hope) is a muscle.

In order to keep my crazy bread cravings at bay I concocted a Green Smoothie recipe that has powerful punch and tastes pretty good too.  Plus, when strangers see you drinking a green smoothie they think “Wow, she is super healthy. I bet she works out too.  I can see a bump on her arm.”


Green Smoothie recipe including Strawberries, Mango, Kale, Banana, Chia Seeds

Green Smoothie Goodness:

Strawberries *

Mango*

Kale*

Banana

Chia Seeds

Orange Juice

**Here is a tip:  Use frozen fruit for a nice thick consistency.  Fresh fruit will give it a more juice like quality.  I like it thick.

Step 1:  Put all the ingredients into your blender or cup.

Green Smoothie

I used about 5 strawberries, 5 mangos pieces, and 1/2 cup of Kale

1.5 tbsp of Chia seeds

1/2 cup Orange Juice

Step 2:  Squish in the banana. You would be surprised just how bitter your smoothie will be without the banana. (I squish it in because I always forget to add it until the end.)

Step 3: Blend

Diet Progress

The last weigh in post I was coming it at 139 and I am pleased to say the results continue to be successful!

HCG is a safe quick weight loss program with proven results138.4!

At this rate I am averaging about a pound a day and I am losing weight fast!

Even though the pounds are currently falling off easily this phase of the HCG diet plan is fairly tough.  The amount of calories that I am allowed to consume each day total 500.  So, yes, I am hungry almost all day and no it is not unbearable.   My eating habits, after the first round of  HCG, never went back to  their extreme carb loving ways and the weight has stayed off!

Here is the following day weigh in:

The HCG diet weight loss plan is a great way to loose weight.

137.8!

Another day and another pound!  Wonderful success!

I am going to take this moment and let you know right now. My goal is NOT to loose another 10-13 pounds.  I am shooting for 135 on this round.  I enjoy the curves and I have never been Twiggy.

HCG diet and my weigh ins

I am dieting again.  Never an easy or enjoyable task and as promised on my Facebook page I will be blogging the results.  It helps you guys learn about the diet AND it keeps me accountable.  A two birds with one stone thing….

If you were around in January you may remember that I participated in the HCG diet with fantastic results.  I lost 13 pounds and kept most of them off!  I was 137 at the end date of the last round and during these last few months I fluctuated in a five pound range. Not too shabby.

I am now participating in my second round of the HCG diet.  Here was my first weigh in:

Results of HCG diet

Yup this was right after my vacation so I was up a bit but not as much as I will be after my two day food overload.  I am also going to take this moment to blame my vacation for the chipped off toe nail polish.

Following my two days of consuming massive amounts of food I gained a whooping three pounds! UGH. I was silently saying to myself “The miracle of HCG had better kick in because this is ridiculous.”

The results of one day on the 500 cal. Phase 2 diet were a success!

139.6 and would you check out my nail polish now….Blame the vacation. Anyways I dropped those five bad boys.

Now to all the nay-sayers out there, I know you don’t approve and I know what you are thinking so here is my response……I’m fine and I am not passing judgement on you so don’t start with me.

I am currently further along than these pictures but I am late in blogging the results so I will blog more tomorrow.  Too many feet shots are not healthy for anyone.

Quick, Easy Smoothie

We are fighting an ugly cold in this house.  My husband brought it home from work last week and I managed, in my “No WAY are we getting sick on the birthday weekend” madness, to keep us all from getting ill….or so I thought.  The youngest was struck down Sunday morning.  Yes, STRUCK DOWN.  This drippy, blotchy, coughy, clammy little munchkin has been in a horizontal position for over 24 hours.  It’s bad. In fact, earlier today I could of sworn I saw a representative from the Department of Health and Human Services drive by to get the address of the house that needs to be quarantined.

Anyways, I asked on my Facebook Fan page  for more homeopathic remidies to feed my kiddo and myself (just in case) and a good friend recommend some plain yogurt.  I took the plain yogurt idea and ran.  Well, not really RAN, because running with yogurt is never a good idea.  I used my plain yogurt for the good of the many!  I made smoothies for the family!!

The ingredients
Fresh blackberries
Frozen strawberries
Plain yogurt 
ice 
water (to thin it out)
Stevia 
I just blended them all together until the taste was what I was looking for! After the smoothie was finished I added Echinacea extract for an added punch for the immune system.
Here is another bonus with this smoothie. It is good for us HCG dieters.  You can actually have all these ingredients on the maintenance program.  Boo YA!  

Here is my smoothie!

Notice the straw?!  I believe that no matter what age you are that a crazy straw should always be included in some part of your drinking repertoire. 
Hopefully, the amount of vitamins I have crammed down everyone’s throat in the last couple of days will keep us all safe from the cold.  If not, watch the evening news for a picture my house and a giant quarantine tape wrapped around it.
