Kick it up

After weeks of aching ankles after aerobics class, I finally got a new pair of kicks. It's amazing how fast your tennis shoes wear out. I decided to go with the same brand that works for my feet. You can't go wrong with bright orange Saucony tennis shoes. People will know I am coming, right? Nate was a little surprised I picked that color, but I was tired of boring.

I have also been enjoying more of this. (see picture below) We add this to our smoothies in the morning. I have tried a few smoothie recipes out there but we finally have perfected a good one. I am full until lunch. I used to get hungry around 10:30 a.m. but the smoothie holds me over until lunch. Here it is.

1/2 cup plain or vanilla organic yogart.
1/2-3/4 cup spinach leaves. (more if I am making it)
1 banana
1 cup frozen berries
a dollup of honey
a big spoonful of protein powder
1 tbsp chia seeds (sometimes)

This morning we woke up to this. (see picture below) The high today is 26! Brrr! It's cold!


  1. I thought you had on new shoes the other day..meant to ask you! They are super cute!
