With my job, we can only carry over a certain amount of vacation time a year. Anything over that, we have to use by January 11th – well I “have” to take off almost 3 weeks right now – and loving it! So it’s given me time to rest and relax. But I’m also researching if a detox/cleanse really work. So far, if you stick to one for 3 days it’s okay, but how can people do one for 21 days?

Then I decided to possibly do a detox/cleanse smoothie as breakfast for a week and then eat pure and natural foods just to help get the junk out of my system that I’ve eaten from all the Christmas goodies. Reading thru the recipes though, I noticed they all ended up with a green color. And yes, I do know they add green vegetables – but not really for sure how spinach or lettuce taste as a smoothie?

So for anyone reading this – do you have any thoughts on these smoothies? Have you tired them with spinach, collards, lettuce, celery or any other green vegetable? What’s the trick to making the smoothie smooth? And not chunky? Or is there a combination of fruits and/or vegetables that you enjoy in a smootie?
I really do enjoy making smoothies, but I’ve only done protein and fruit.

Today, I recreated a new Fitness Pal account – with the screen name “melanina03” to keep track of what I eat/drink/burn. I will admit, I was a HUGE fan of Weight Watchers – until they revamped their program – all fruits are free??? Hmmm, well for me, I couldn’t do it. I had lost the majority of my weight on their previous program and was faithful. Then when they switch programs, so did all their products associated with them. It was too difficult to figure out the difference between the old points and new points.

So with Fitness Pal, it’s synced to my fitbit tracking monitor and I can easily track my food intake and track my exercise goals. I had mentioned my screen name previously in case anyone wanted to be accountable on there.
