Every Single Moment

Howdy!

How's your week going so far? Usually, by Thursday I am already looking forward to the weekend and counting down the hours until 5 o'clock on Friday when "the fun begins." However, that's not really fair to Thursday or the better part of Friday. That is a lot of time that I spend wishing away and not enjoying the moment. I came across this quote on Pinterest the other day and it really reminded me that I shouldn't wish any moments away, but appreciate every single one I get. Even if those moments are spent in meetings, working on budgets, or stuck in traffic. It's a moment I can never get back so I should enjoy it while it's there.

This morning I definitely enjoyed every single moment I spent drinking my green smoothie. It was day three of the green smoothie challenge, and I decided to stay on my roll of trying out new mixtures. I used to be a straight strawberry banana kind of girl, but not any more. Check out what went into this bad boy!

I am absolutely loving the green smoothie challenge. It feels great knowing that I am starting every day with a super food packed breakfast that leaves me satisfied and energized for the day. I have to admit that I was a little worried about committing to 7 days straight of green smoothies for breakfast since I LOVE my eggs in the morning. I was afraid that drinking my breakfast wouldn't be as satisfying or that I would be hungrier throughout the day. This was so not true! I stayed just as full as I do when I eat eggs for breakfast, and haven't missed chewing my food one bit. Trying out new smoothie combinations have kept things exciting, and I find myself really looking forward to my liquid breakfast! :)




Mmmmm Mmmmm Good! Don't let the icky look full you, this guy was sweet, delicious, and satisfying. The perfect breakfast!

What moment are you especially thankful for today?

Are you a chewer or sipper for breakfast?

In health,
