Day Thirty Seven

OOPS! I made the smoothie bright and early yesterday morning, but just never sat down to blog it. How did I let that happen? I've been struck by plantar faciitis and it really seemed to mess with not only my workouts, but my mind as well. I've finally arrived at a place where I'm committed to getting healthy. I'm drinking my green smoothies, eating more salad everyday, and I was working out consistently. And then WHAM! I can't walk. At all. When I get up in the mornings, I literally look like an 87 year old woman trying to hobble to the bathroom. Its really frustrating and I spent most of yesterday feeling sorry for myself. So, in a nutshell, that's how I missed my blog post. My apologies.
I will be going to my inlaws to watch the Superbowl today and I'm taking my vita-mix with me to make a smoothie for them. I'll blog my recipe from their house. So, here we go. Yesterday's smoothie was:
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 3 pineapple spears
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 c water
  • lots of spinach
  • ICE

It was ok. I'm just not a fan of the coconut oil. But I contintue to use it because I know its healthy. Like the last one, it tasted better after it had been in the fridge for a while. I'll check back in later this afternoon!


  1. I hope you feel better soon. While looking for recipes with greens, I came across your site.

    It's ironic that I found my local Aldi sells pineapple cheap a few weeks ago. I've also been looking for a way to get more greens into my diet.

    Thanks for the great recipes. I will let you know how I like them as I try them.


  2. Sorry, Jess! Injuries are no fun. :(
