Tired; Grumpy; Unmotivated; Headaches and Mood swings...

This is what happens when I indulge myself in Robyn Openshaw from Green Smoothie Girl describes it: "a carb coma." This has been me the last couple of weeks. I guess I've made a lot of excuses: #1 no blender; #2 no husband to be held accountable to; #3 a sister who is an aspiring pastry chef (I NEED to get out of the house! #4 Did I mention I'm still living with my parents??); #5 stress...and more stress; #6 birthday cakes (3 birthdays in the family this month); no exercise (#7 hey, it's COLD out there!); etc, etc, etc. 

I'm realizing that I'm experiencing side effects that I don't really like and don't make me a happy camper (or my kids...poor kids dealing with a tired and grumpy mom). I need to get back on track...This week, I plan to start exercising. It seems like when I exercise I am more motivated to eat healthy. My kids have been asking me why I don't make green smoothies anymore?? Huh?? Never thought my kids would be missing those! I NEED to get a better blender! Money going into savings RIGHT NOW. This happens to the best of us, right?...
(not saying I'm ANYWHERE near best...but aspiring!).

Sunwarrior Ormus Greens Powder

I'm sure we all have those days when we know it's not going to be a green smoothie day...or we know that we just don't have the time or energy to make a delicious green salad or chop up veggies. (Believe me, it's been one of those MONTHS for me)

I recently purchased some greens powder that was recommended by Green Smoothie Girl . (I purchased it on sell for about $45 at Good Earth). She likes it because it has a minty flavor, and it's a little easier to digest and it doesn't have any of the fillers like some of the other green powders out there.

I have to tell you, the first couple of times, the gag reflex was trying it's best to reject, but I kept trying. I added a little less the 3rd time (should have added less the 1st time, lol) and it was MUCH more drinkable. I have to say, now that I am used to it, I can gulp it down pretty quickly.

So my advice, if you do try this product, start small and add more after you get used to the taste. You can also just mix it in with your smoothie or just add it to water like I do. Click HERE for more info. The ingredients include: Oat grass; barley and wheat grass; alfalfa; yucca; parsley; spinach; probiotic culture; peppermint; whole-leaf stevia (sweetener).

"This is the highest vibration greens product in the world, grown organically in a pristine ancient sea bed in a volcanic region of Utah and Arizona. The soil is loaded with platinum, gold, silver and ormus trace minerals that give the greens a magnetic property that increases the vibration and frequency of those who consume it."
