MARVEL-US MONDAY:SPINACH BANANA SMOOTHIE+AN UPDATE+FINAL HOURS FOR A GIVEAWAY!

Pin It Now!
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"...
THE SCALE!
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!!

SPINACH BANANA SMOOTHIE:
1-Fill cup with ice and pour into the blender
2-Break up a whole banana and put it in the blender.
3-Grab a hand full of fresh spinach and then...YEP...put it in the blender, too.
4-Pour 1/3 cup of water into the...you guessed it...THE BLENDER!
5-NOW, BLEND AND ENJOY!
:)
***I ADD A LITTLE SWEETENER OR YOGURT BUT THIS IS OPTIONAL. IT TASTES GREAT WITHOUT IT AS WELL***

I really hope you try it! It took some guts for me but I am SO GLAD I did!

ALSO, there is about 12 HOURS LEFT of MY FIRST GIVEAWAY EVER (CHECK IT OUT HERE)!

  1. That is my favorite smoothie, I make something similar most mornings! I put yogurt in mine, and I toss in a handful of quaker oats (uncooked). You gotta make sure the oats blend up really well or it gets a kinda weird texture, but they make it a super filling smoothie. I can go until about 2pm on just that!

  2. Sounds interesting. I just had a banana shake from chic filet. Not nearly as healthy as this. Thanks for sharing.
