Smoothie / Exercise Post

A friend of mine recently told me about this smoothie and I've been hooked on it! In fact, any day that I can't have it for lunch, I just don't feel right... like I'm cheating on my "diet." LOL
I don't have A LOT of weight to lose, but I would love to lose 10 lbs and of course, tighten and firm my tummy. Having a small, nutritious breakfast of either a banana and half an orange or 2 kiwis and possibly a banana, followed by this smoothie for lunch, is helping me shed weight. I'm also going to the gym for 30-60 mins 4 times a week.
 
Here's what goes in the smoothie:
2 handfuls of spinach
1 apple
half an orange
1 banana
5 strawberries
1 cup of yogurt
 
I can't afford to eat organic all of the time, but I do try to buy it every other week. I also peel my apple about half the time, and just wash the skin really well the other half (all of the chemicals are absorbed by the skin BUT all of the nutrients are also in the skin). I am using fat-free yogurt, and I'm buying the tub, so I just scoop about 3 large tablespoons into my smoothie. Once I have all of my ingredients in the blender, I fill it with ice almost to the top, because I like it cold.
 
The length of time I spend at the gym just depends on how much time I have. I try to be there closer to an hour, but even when I can't stay long, I make sure to get my cardio in. If I am short on time, I jog for 10 mins. If I have a little more time to spare, I like to jog 2 miles to start my workout. I aim to keep my heart rate around 140, and that is more important to me than speed, so that's my purpose for jogging. After my jog, I focus on a muscle group (abs, arms, or legs). I spend the rest of my workout working on that area. For abs, I use the ab machine and do sit ups holding a medicine ball at my chest and over my head. For arms, I use free weights and a couple of machines. For legs, I use a few different machines. I LOVE working out!
 
One of the most important things about getting fit is drinking plenty of water. Remember never to drink your calories. You won't see any weight loss or notice a difference in your body if you drink sodas (diet or not), energy drinks, or any other sugary drinks. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, and absolutely stay hydrated while you're working out.
 
If you're unable to hit the gym, there is plenty to do at home. You can run outside or in place, and you can jump rope or do jumping jacks for indoor cardio. You can do sit ups, crunches, push ups, leg raises, etc. all in your home. You can also get a set of dumbells to work on those arms. :)
 
I hope this post has helped anyone who's looking to get fit, but doesn't know where to start!

I haven't really had time to write up patterns lately. I've been so busy with pre-K, soccer, karate, and dance, while also trying to get Halloween and turkey hat orders out in time for the holidays. Here's a quicky pattern. It's really very easy if you understand crochet patterns and do not need pictures of each step. If you have any questions, jusk ask. Enjoy!
 
As always, please link back to this post or my Facebook page if you post your hat for sale. Please be sure to credit me for the pattern. Thanks!

Each of the curly things is: Chain 21, sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 19. (It will start curling on its own and you can curl it better with your finger.) I did 4 of these for the top. For the one hanging from the nose I did the same thing, but used hdc.
You'll sew the sc curlies to the top of the hat and the hdc curly beside the nose, after the nose is sewn on.

Monster Cookies

It's been a long time since my last post, so I thought I'd post a sweet treat!

With my neighbor's encouragement, I've been breaking out the stand mixer more often (well, twice) and baking! This week, my son and I made monster cookies together. They are one of my favorite treats that my mom bakes when we do our Christmas baking. I didn't have her recipe, which makes a TON of cookies, but I googled and used Paula Deen's recipe, which made about 3 dozen large cookies.


You will need:
3 eggs
1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 12-ounce jar creamy peanut butter
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup multi-colored chocolate candies
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup raisins, optional
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 1/2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. The recipe says to line your cookie sheets with parchment paper, but I just greased mine. Mix the first three ingredients well.


Add the next 4 ingredients, and mix well.


Stir in everything else.


Eat some of the candies, of course!



After you've stirred in everything, you should have a big glob of amazing monster-ness. :)


Drop by tablespoons, leaving enough room between them. Bake for 8-10 mins. Cool for 3 mins on the pan, and then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.



Silly me, I forgot to take pictures after we were done... I didn't realize it until I started this post, and we don't have much left. :) They are too delicious not to eat quickly!

Enjoy. I have convinced myself that these are healthy because of all the peanut butter, oats, and raisins. Right!? ;)

Things I'm Loving


There are some things going on in life right now that I just have to take a minute and share. :)


In the crochet world, I'm loving this sweater I made for my cousin's soon-to-be-born baby... Hopefully this size will fit her when it's cold where they live.

I have to admit, I'm also loving the expression on my daughter's face. :)

I didn't ge the sales I thought I would on this watermelon hat this summer, but I love it nonetheless. Unfortunately, I never did make my daughter one... She's more of a hairbows kinda girl.

My son had ribs for the first time (well actually picking them up and eating them off the bone himself) and LOVED them. He's asked for them almost every night since.

BANANA BREAD!! It has been a long time since I made my "famous" banana bread... Ohmygoodness... I will be making it more often again!

My daughter is getting into quite a Mommy stage! I am just in awe every time I see her start playing with her babies! She's climbing in her Bitty Baby's crib every day, sitting for a second, and then wants help getting out, lol.

THIS SMILE!!!!!

Cool summer mornings in the Pacific Northwest... We had our "hot week" last week, so I was leaving the windows open all night. In the morning, the downstairs was quite chilly, but I was determined to keep them open so that it wouldn't get so hot inside the house so fast.

"Down!?" (And the blanket... I had started a granny crochet-along and only lasted the first two weeks. Because my daughter had been covering her dolls with the blanket from her toy picnic basket, I decided to sew them together so her babies would have a real blanket!)

Being Mommy again. She is commanding her doll, "Eat!" Wonder where she gets that? ;)


And I REALLY LOVE when she feeds her babies. I just love, love, love it!!!

Have a good weekend everyone! I'm working quickly to get orders done and out the door, while also packing for our trip to CALIFORNIA!!!! We leave on Tuesday!
