So it's that time of year again- time to start planning for what you want to look like in a swimsuit this summer. The fact that I was disgusted by my pale flabby skin when putting on a T-shirt for the first time this season is not a good sign. I've been striving contuining to eat better (minus my Cracker Bareel b-day dinner) and have been implenting fruits and veggies into meals. Almost every morning last week I had yogurt topped with fresh bananas, strawberries, or both! And one morning I whipped some yogurt, bananas, ice, water and oranges in my blender- amazing. Water has been a huge part of my diet too. I crave it now that I've been sticking to my 80 ounce a day goal. It curbs my hunger and keeps me energized. I've been looking for alternatives to protein shakes for a breakfast alternative as well as some afternoon snacks during the work week. So when I came across 23 of them, I had to share. Not all of them sound terribly appealing, and I'm going to have to hunt down some flaxseed, but I'm excited to try something new, especially since I need to get my butt (and belly, and arms, and thighs...oy) back in gear! And with this crazy warm weather, it'll be nice to have something chilly to sip on.
