Welcome to Week 9 on my journey to a healthy lifestyle.
This weeks's quote is all about making choices.
I wrote about smoothies last week and how effective they are in keeping me regular. I have switched up the ingredients in my smoothies. I am eliminating protein powder in my mid morning smoothies. After much research I decided I didn't need the extra protein. I am now using almond milk, a large handful of spinach, a small banana, and ground flax seed. Two nights a week I am having a smoothie for dinner. In this smoothie I am using protein powder since it is replacing the protein in my dinner. I attached a link below that states the information quite succinctly.
This week's new meal is
Again another simple meal to put together in 30 minutes or less. Loaded with healthy ingredients such as ground turkey along with broccoli slaw or traditional coleslaw mix. I'll be using lower sodium soy sauce in my recipe. We cannot wait to try this new recipe out. Let me know if you've tried this recipe or one like it.
For some reason or another I have been having an extremely difficult time motivating myself to get out of bed each morning. When the alarm goes off at 6 a.m. I am usually already awake and I don't fall back asleep. I'm just laying in bed listening to my Love get ready for work. I have got to break out of this rut!!!
Like last week I managed two upper and lower body strength/weight workouts. An outdoor hilly walk rounded out the week. I have to give myself credit for completing these three workouts. I will continue to strive for the elusive five workouts. I know I'll get there one day at a time.
Please share your motivating ideas on getting out of bed in the morning. I'd love hear them.
