IS IT MONDAY ALREADY!?
Is it acceptable in "Blog World" to not be so "chipper" on this Monday Morning?
Will I be judged for such unacceptable behavior or is there ANYONE out there that can agree that a few more days added to the weekend would certainly benefit this overwhelmed wife and mom?!
I'm thinking...the answer is is probably "YES!"
Don't get me wrong, I am happy that the sun has risen!
Today WILL BE a blessed day!!
You might also be wondering where I have been lately...well...let's just say the storm is brewing and the tornado called "LIFE" is picking up things and throwing them down as it trails it's course!
I'm OK...just doing a lot of thinking...
If you are a praying person...I'll take a little prayer if you are willing.
OK, so on a different note, I have a confession...
This weekend I bought a scale!
YES, I DID!
I have not owned a scale for probably ten years now and since nothing has been working to motivate a change in eating habits or exercise...I had to bring in the "big guns"...
PHEW, it wasn't a pretty sight...kind of a shocker...reminded me of why I hate scales! I have never (and still am not) worried about my "weight" BUT I had to do something!?
Something had to slap me back into reality!
People, I am not getting younger OR smaller...
So this morning, I made my favorite morning motivator. This AWESOME recipe is from my hairdresser, the fabulous PAIGE! She has shared this with me and so many of my friends.
You will like this even if you don't like spinach!
As long as you like banana, you will love it!
It's easy breezy and a great way to start your day!
My kids LOVE IT!!

5-NOW, BLEND AND ENJOY!
***I ADD A LITTLE SWEETENER OR YOGURT BUT THIS IS OPTIONAL. IT TASTES GREAT WITHOUT IT AS WELL***
