"oops...hit the button too early. Also instead of putting them in the fridge i put them, in water ( like flowers) and change the water often. Works very very well for basil."

My thoughts to the Newton school family's

My thoughts go to all the families affected by this atrocious event at the Newton School....we should not have to send our children to school to never see them again...let alone before Christmas.

I dream of a peaceful world, this is my wish for 2013.

Thanks. I'll be ok. I've learned to quick kicking myself when I goof up and just get back in the healthy swing. You're right about frozen bananas and berries. It is very good!

I didn't do so well with it at the end. I have some things going on and am feeling depressed, so I did what so many of us do and reached for comfort food. The thing is I knew why I was doing it but still did it. Can't look back though. I'm going to keep the smoothies in daily too. Thanks for going along with it and providing encouragement by doing so.

I'm not sure how long I'm going to go on. I've not had it easy with affording it all. I don't know about your weight but I'm a big girl and maybe it just takes more for me get by or I'm not buying right. How about you?  How long are you going?

At 5:04pm on February 7, 2014, Kathleen Smith said…

You've kept me going too, but I did splurge tonight and have some 'real' food. It wasn't healthy either and I thought I'd enjoy it. Oddly, it barely had flavor and shortly after I started eating it, all I could think was how much better my smoothies tasted. They will definitely remain a big part of my diet from now on. If you hadn't agreed to do this with me, I might not have stayed motivated this long. Back to it tomorrow!
