Lucky Girl

Sorry I've been absent.  There's been a lot going on. 'Tis the season and all that. Plus, I was feeling very upset and didn't feel like spewing on all of you.  Having a school age child, the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary hit me hard, as I'm sure it did most of you. 
Eating has been a bit scattered recently. Hubby is home on vacation, 3 kids running around (6 right now actually since cousins are over visiting), trying to get things ready for our trip to Disneyland... yeah, things are hectic. Through it all though I'm cognizant of the fact that I am a lucky girl.  I am truly blessed and I am thankful for everything I have!  
Being the emotional eater I am, having holiday treats around has been difficult.  I have definitely indulged in a few things lately but I have also eaten mostly good the rest of the time.  This morning's weight was 151.4. To be honest I really don't care what the scale says right now.  I'm working out to Ripped in 30 and living life.
Hubby was super awesome and surprised me with something that has helped keep me a little more on track lately....
Vitamix blenders are expensive!!  I freely admit to being a total cheapo most of the time.  My husband is the "spender" lol.  I totally love him right now for being a spender :) I love smoothies because they are  quick and easy. Having a Vitamix blender makes them 100x better!!! Being able to add things like celery, carrots and kale to my smoothies has been awesome.  I have added kale to my smoothies before but the texture of the smoothies wasn't that great.  Now I can have a nutrient/veggie packed smoothie WITH a great consistency and texture. Woo-hoo!! Thank you dear.
By the way, it's okay if some of you think I'm crazy for being so excited about a blender.

Hope you all are doing well!  Merry Christmas friends!  I'll be back next week sometime :)
Hug your babies if you got 'em.  Stay safe.

Yay! My hubs got me a vitamix in August for our anniversary. It takes some getting used to but is so amazing :)

Speaking of the vitamix... I just made a peppermint chocolate chip milkshake! Vanilla Icecream, milk, a candy cane, and chocolate chips. Hoooooly moly! It made me think of your post though! So much for the healthy part of the vitamix ;)
