I will take that, even if I was hoping for more. I’m down 2.8 this week, but then we ate at Peppi’s for lunch (home of meat on white bread covered in cheese, cooked in grease…. no, really, that’s all they have. You choose the meat.) So I’ll be diligent today and tomorrow and will eat well until Saturday afternoon, when we are going to my mom’s for dinner.
I worked out a lot this week: I did the Jillian Michael’s Shred once or twice, I did a couple of different yoga and pilates videos and I walked at least 14 miles. And I can see it in my self: my collarbone is more pronounced (one of my favorite weight-loss things) and my clothes feel & look better. I love that I can see results like this in just a week. Imagine how I’ll look next week and how I’ll look at Thanksgiving when I’m 3.2 pounds lighter than today (as part of my Healthy Holiday plan, see previous post.)
I made a crazy good smoothie this morning that sounds totally nasty. Very easy. Recipe below. It’s sweet and does not taste like kale or celery at all. It is pea green though which is a little off-putting, but the taste makes it worth it.
Kale-Celery Smoothie (Or Pear-Pineapple Smoothie, if you prefer) 3 giant kale leave, with the stems stripped out 1 stalk of celery, sliced 1 pear, cored and sliced 1/2 c. pineapple (with some of the juice for swetness, if you like) 1 1/2 c. of water
Put it all in a blender and blend until completely smooth and frothy.
