Oh my goodness! What a gorgeous day to be outside in Austin and we did just that. On my way out to begin my errands, I had the LUSCIOUS Day 4 green smoothie in hand – VERY BERRY. Mixed berries, an orange, banana, and spinach made this a REFRESHING smoothie!!! I replaced plain water with coconut water and added ground flax seeds and ginger. I finished drinking the smoothie in a matter of minutes. That smoothie was VERY, BERRY GOOD!
It occurred to me that consistency is another key ingredient in maintaining healthy habits. I’ve been drinking green smoothies for years and it’s been the last few Januarys that I’ve participated in green smoothie challenges. You don’t have to be perfect in following your plan, but consistency will help you reach your goals.
Even if you slack off a bit, get back at it. Never give up. One healthy habit executed consistently will inspire another healthy habit and so on. Just don’t give up!
The beautiful weather inspired me to get out and attend a health expo at Huston Tillotson University. I’m glad I did because I ran into the dancer who used to teach my daughter ballet when she was little. After that, my husband and I enjoyed a long walk in the woods.
What was the weather like in your neck of the woods? I hope you get some SUNSHINE when it comes around.
