7 days done and we are going strong! Today was another crazy, hectic day around here but I still managed to squeeze in a smoothie. At one point today, I was doubtful. I was feeling tired and like it was too much work. I realized that that was probably because I was on the go and hadn’t eaten anything substantial and then I reminded myself how I keep telling people just how easy, and fast it s and how great they will feel afterwards. So, I took my own advice and begrudgingly pulled out the blender. Of course, my blender was acting up and not blending well…finally, I blended everything together; kale, banana, pineapple and almonds.
One sip and I was already feeling rejuvenated! Oh, how happy I was that I pushed through and made my smoothie. I’m already looking forward to my smoothie tomorrow; I’m hoping to be more creative! Until tomorrow…

In January 2013 I realized I needed to do something to improve my health. I spent 2012 on maternity leave and often neglected taking care of my own health (sleepless nights and caring for a tiny human will do that!). Not to mention the many years before that where health was at the bottom of my list of priorities. Luckily, I discovered Lisa's 30 day green smoothie challenge. The recipes were incredible and a green smoothie drinker was born! But I didn't stop there. Starting each day in such a healthy way led me to consult with a naturopath (it would have been Lisa if we were in the same city), do an elimination diet, and discover that I have sensitivities to wheat and milk. I changed to a whole foods-based diet (most of the time) and took up running. In the span of 8.5 months I went from being tired and sluggish on the couch (literally - I could run for one minute at a time before having to walk) to having enough energy to run the Detroit International Half Marathon. I actually RAN the whole thing! And I lost almost 60lbs along the way! Thank you, Lisa, for being my catalyst. Your challenge kept me interested in a new way of living and saved me! I continue to drink a green smoothie every day for breakfast. What a wonderful way to start each day!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
