Day Sixty

Phew. Monday's are tough around here. I finished off the little bit left of yesterday's smoothie this morning and then didn't even get within five feet of my blender until after 10 pm. I fired up the vitamix and then sat down and watched Jake make the biggest mistake of his life propose to Vienna and let me just tell you, from one pilot's wife to, well, you guys. That girl does not have what it takes to be "sometimes single". She's in for one rude awakening once she moves to Dallas and they enter into what the rest of us know as "the real world." But hey, maybe she'll surprise us all, but I'm not holding my breath ; )
  • handful of frozen strawberries
  • 1 lb bag of frozen pineapple
  • 2 big handfuls of spinach
  • 1 quart water
  • 1 banana

It was very good, but it didn't go so well with the Thin Mints I was eating. ; )


  1. Way to go! I did not commit for 365 days but I did commit for 90 days on January 23, my 54th birthday. It has been a good month. It is so easy to "cook" : ) and so easy to feel full and satisfied. My clothes are fitting better and I have lost 15 pounds in the first month. Now, mind you, I was not eating the SAD diet but mostly smoothies, veggies and fruit. Thought it would be hard and it was for the first two weeks, but I am feeling so much better that I am convinced to really give it a go. My goal is three months and more to go - till I lose the 60 pounds that i need to loose and my blood pressure is down to normal and I am the wife and mother I want to be - with energy! Good for you and your 365. Who knows, maybe I will do this for a year. Best wishes, Rachel

  2. I made my first green smoothie tonight
    You are my hero!
    Thank you for doing this blog
    I was surprised it tasted as good as it did
    I just threw some stuff together with some spinach, ice, and I did orange juice instead of water. So so good.
    This will be a few times a week thing for sure!
