Congratulations to me, I made it through two months of eating (mostly) slow-carb friendly foods… and I am moving on and (hopefully) not going back.
While it was kind of a pain in the ass at times, I would say it was a relative success. I went from 192.2 lbs -> 172.2 lbs over two months, and since I did not fully stick to the diet, I am not going to complain (although I was hoping for another 5 pounds, but I’m sure that will come in time).
To celebrate my minor accomplishments, I’m treating myself to this delicious smoothie.
The worst part about this is that you have to be proactive. Get it ready at night before bed so it’s ready to go in the morning… I’m awful at remembering to do things at night.
Throw all of your frozen fruits in the blender, add some milk, add your juice, cover it up, and throw it in the fridge for 8 hours.
I’m a fan of anything this easy… it also goes really well with the chocolate flavored protein powder I’ve been trying to ingest daily (now that I shaved off some fat, it’s time to grow some muscles on top of my relatively muscle-free torso).
I’ll probably be trying out different fruit/juice combos at random… anyone have any favorites?!
With some foresight, this is an easy and delicious breakfast… assuming you enjoy fruit.
Add ingredients into your blender's jar (I'm sure it has a fancy name that I don't know).
Let sit overnight (8 hours or so).
Blend on medium for one minute then increase speed to high and blend an additional minute.
Pour and enjoy!
