Infused Water - sounds interesting

Have your tried infused water. The one or two times I have I wasn't in love with it but now that I've given up bought ice tea and soda and am crushing the sugar appetite I might like it so I think I'll give it a try.

After work I went to workout and I was all grumpy. Yep, grumpy grumpy grumpy.  After working out and seeing the Grandbaby I can't remember why I was grumpy. Life is good. Gobble Squats and 14" steppers are good for whatever grumps your way.  Just sayin...

Ice Cream Maker

Bought a counter top ice cream maker. I am going to try to make some healthy frozen yogurt.  It's made with yogurt, peanut butter, milk and vanilla. I hope it's as yummy as it is simple.  We'll see - get back to you on this one.

First attempt Wednesday night 9/11.

How do you add to the tabs - - - I can't figure out how to add to the area called recipes or any of the other tabs. Bueller... Bueller, Anyone

Sometimes it's easy .... sometimes not so much!

The two hardest times of the year for a teacher are the start up and the shut down of the year. September and June. On top of the every day work you do you have to do a lot of other things (i.e. take a "10 minute" training on using epi pens, learn 125 new names, go over new IEPs, figure out where you need to be with your new schedule, etc.) So the last thing you want is one more thing to do  - - - exercise and eat right!  Can't I just grab a Nutri-grain bar and a diet coke, skip the exercise and deal with it all later.

I actually didn't exercise this week beyond the minimum, I was barely eating right and I certainly didn't want to go visit 2B and have her work my Brazilian butt off.  I could have canceled at the drop of hat, one hint she didn't want to see me and "I'm outta here." None of that happened so I grudgingly pulled myself away from the computer where I was preparing for tomorrows lesson and went to workout.

Wow, how much better I feel!!! Stinks huh, being a slug is easier and there is much more self-pity available if you are a slug (no results but a lot of self-pity).

On to the shower - - - a well earned shower.

I want to try this!

Chocolate Cherries Smoothie

* 12oz unsweetened almond milk
* 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
* 3 cupped handfuls of cherries (fresh or from frozen)
* 1/2 cup spinach (trust me )
* 3 tbsp walnuts
* 6 cubes ice if using fresh cherries

(This is a large man's serving. Half it for smaller women).

Trainer and Bike Ride

In the same day!!!

7:00 a.m. Training with 2B - nice workout and she got the kink out of my shoulder too!

7:00 p.m. Bike ride with hubby. 45 minutes  :-)  Thank goodness for the downhill parts.
