Being a new mom again has been a challenge to say the least. Five weeks after having my little one, I was down to 145lbs which is 7 pounds less than my pre-baby weight. Today (14 weeks postpartum) I am 153.8lbs. I am not happy!
While I am not a person who typically stresses over weight, I do want to look better in the clothes that I wear. During the pandemic, I did a lot of stress shopping (🙃) which means that there are lots of clothing options available that I am not able to fit in, this is the main reason why I need to get myself together! That coupled with my favorite season quickly approaching. My favorite gal pal and I decided that we would commit to a healthy lifestyle journey which includes exercising at least three times weekly, clean eating and fasting. This commences Monday, September 14th 2020.
To ensure that I am prepared, committed and have no excuse for failing during this journey, I went to the grocery store early this morning to stock up on healthy items. While unpacking I decided to make this super quick and easy green smoothie to get the day started.
Delicious, green and clean, this smoothie has everything you need to kickstart the day while fueling up to be productive. Try it and tag me in your post! If you are ready to journey with us, write in the comments and we can become your accountability partners.
