Weight Loss Journey and Smoothie Recipe
I Lost 2 Lbs. In Four Days!
That may not seem like a lot to you, but I was surprised I had lost any that quickly.
I’m going to share some of my recipes with you. They have ingredients that get your metabolism going. This first one is the Blueberry Chocolate Almond Smoothie. It’s so good!
Last week end I got on the scales and that was it! I said, no more! I’m going to lose weight! First thing I did was cut out Root Beer and Hershey candy bars. For the first couple days I really missed it. But it got better after that. Now I drink iced tea with Truvia and no candy.
I’m using some of Dr. Oz’s recipes to boost my metabolism and just eat healthier. This smoothie can have an extra fruit in it, like strawberries. It just makes it taste better. So you will really like it.
I also started exercising Monday (Jan. 5th). I just do floor exercises for 25 – 30 minutes a day. A few years ago, I lost 50 lbs. but I’ve gained 40 of it back and now that has to go! We don’t need to go to the gym or buy all our meals. We can do this ourselves.
Now I know some things to add to my food to get the fat out! So I’m going to be sharing with you, in case you want to do this too. I don’t eat bad tasting food, so what I have here will taste good.
I’ve added two vitamins, Vitamin D and Selenium. Selenium helps the regulation of thyroid hormones, promoting increased energy and weight loss. This is also in nuts. Vitamin D is good for high blood pressure and many other things. You may not need that.
I’m eating protein bars, vegetable chips (I just love potato chips), fish, grilled chicken, salad with low-fat dressing, a banana a day, nuts, beans and just a lot of healthy food. I’ll share my recipes with you as I go.
Are you on a weight loss journey too? We should chat sometimes and give each other support. I’d love to do that. Leave me a comment if you’d like to. We could talk through email, Facebook or private messages. I hope you enjoy this smoothie. I really do love it!
