MIA and back in action

I know I was MIA yesterday – no excuses really, I just didn’t feel like blogging.  Here’s a recap of Wednesday:

I had good intentions on Wednesday – went for a 45 minute walk during work and planned on working out when I got home, but I talked myself out of it.   I watched DVR’d episodes of The Cleaner instead – slacker.  This was followed by some mindless munching  – Kashi crackers with peanut butter, cereal, Kashi cookies, sunchips, and a few mini Twix bars.   Technically I should say binge instead of munching…munching sounds so much better though.  Moral of the story – I have to blog every day even if I don’t feel like it.  Also, I am allowed to take a day off from working out, but shouldn’t feel guilty and let that turn into eating unnecessary stuff.

Enough about that…today I will not continue yesterday’s cycle.  Wasn’t feeling that hungry because of all the junk last night, so I decided on a light smoothie:

DSC02025– 1/2 cup frozen strawberries

– 1/2 frozen peach

– 1/2 frozen banana

– 8 oz skim milk

– 1 scoop unflavored whey protein

– 1 tsp agave nectar

Very refreshing!

Now I’m ready to take on the day.  Today’s agenda includes working out, a haircut/highlight, hanging out with my sister-in-law, and whatever else I feel like accomplishing.  Glad to be back! 🙂

    What a healthy diet! I should copy and paste this post and show it to all my clients at work. The wonderful thing is that all the food is healthy, but not inedible like most people picture healthy food. Instead, it’s tasteful and satisfying! What a concept.
