Watch Out...

because eating chips and salsa for dinner every night can make you fat ( who knew). Yes my friends I have managed to gain 4 pounds in 2 weeks. So why can't I ever manage to even loose 2 pounds in 2 weeks, not fair.

This could be the beginning of a wonderful friendship

I have been making myself green smoothies for breakfast lately. My blender has done a pretty good job, but I use it almost everyday and sometimes twice a day and I think my blender is wanting a break. I have been dreaming of buying a vitamix. Unfortunately they are seriously expensive. I did manage to earn a few extra bucks coaching youth football so I think I am going to indulge and buy myself this wonderful machine. I am reading a book about green smoothies and they flat out say they reccommend a vitamix. I mean my life will be so much more fulfilled so I guess I just have to do. Right now its at costco for 50 bucks off and I plan on strolling up there on Saturday to buy my new best friend. I think this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Smoothies and summer time go hand in hand.

MIA because...

I haven't posted for a while and if you read my regular blog than you know why. I have currently been plagued with total junk food cravings. The good news is I am still managing to get in my daily greens and fruits with my morning smoothie. The bad news, I have chips and salsa daily. It has become my vice. Being vegan I feel that I should be eating healthy and responsibly all of the time, but lately I have failed. Its time to post the hard facts, even though I am vegan I still have a fat personality. I think about and want junk sometimes. However, I have experienced some relief by becoming vegan. At least I know if I am eating chips and salsa for dinner that I already had some veggies and fruit. Nobody is perfect. I hope on day to become a total health freak, but for now I am going to settle and sit on the couch watching my favorite shows while dining on a some Tostidos chips and salsa.

Yes, I am still vegan and loving it! The reality of the situation is that it is hard to come up with good blog topics, especially in this economy. Thanks for your understanding. Stay tuned... REINS
