NutriBullet Day 3 and a Kick in the Butt

I wish I could post pictures from the computer I’m at so that I can verify day 3 of my NutriBullet use! I forgot to stop and get Almond milk to add to it so I’ll have to do that today if I have time. This morning it was….one each of the following: carrot, apple, pear. A giant handful of spinach. And a chunk of pineapple. It’s so much easier to throw all the stuff into the cup, put it on the blender, take the cup off and place the lid on and GO! I won’t stop juicing all together – I paid a lot of money for that juicer and there’s nothing better than watermelon-vodka-tonics in the summer…amiright? But for the mornings when I’ve barely got my mascara on and I need to make a quick exit while still treating my body to something wonderful and nutritious – this is totally the way to go.

The only downside to living in Marietta now is that I don’t have access to a farmers market. There will be a local one that is hosted Saturday mornings starting in May though!. Can’t freaking wait. This is only about 10 minutes from my house and we all know how much I love supporting the local economy. Nothing beats fresh fruits and veggies grown in the rich southern soil and sun!

Today I woke up and weighed myself. I can’t decide if it was a mistake or just the motivation I needed for the morning to reconnect with my goals. Not looking for a number but the number was a reminder that I haven’t been doing as well as I should. So, as I’m writing this post and drinking my green smoothie I’m planning out my meals for the rest of the day and praying nothing happens in between to get me off track. Not going to lie – I have a goal weight for my birthday. I won’t share it. It’s nothing extreme. But it’s doable and something I’d like to prove to myself that I can do and do it right this time. I’ve been on a much better path as far as my relationship with food had gone. Now instead of maintaining I need to push myself to lose the weight and keep with my new found healthy habits of nutrition and not yoyo. Fingers Crossed! (Meanwhile we are celebrating a coworker’s birthday today and there are muffins AND cupcakes AND cake. FML.)

So excited for everyone who made it into the Chicago Marathon! Can’t wait to see you all succeed!! Maybe next year I’ll try to do it, also! For this year we’re going to keep it local. Best of luck, y’all!

**NutriBullet didn’t pay me any money….still.

What is your biggest bridge to cross when it comes to weight loss?

Do you have a game plan for your summer race series?


  1. Smoothies are the best fa sho! :) get it girl. As for weight loss, I am on week three of cutting both sugar and cheese out of my diet (and I don't eat grains, generally speaking) and I have lost 7 pounds without changing anything else. We're talking only whole, real foods - and I could feel any better. When I say no sugar, I mean it! Only kind allowed is fruit because I would die without it. But for real, it's been working miracles on my body and it's only been 3 weeks. I do not have weight loss goals, for realz, but I do enjoy a better looking body as summer approaches. :) JUNE 7! :) I'll be outta town but I surely wanna party if I'm in town with you! :) Yay for Chicago! Seems like everyone got in who wanted to, LOL! :)

  2. holy smokes look at you!!!! Way jelly. Granted, if I was doing what you're doing then maybe I'd be down 7lbs too!! Such an inspiration!

    Uhm yes all the partying shall be done for the day of birth!! :D :D

    Well you're gonna rock out chicago! Excited to train with youuuu!

  3. I'm going to make that blend in my nutribullet... sounds good. Don't know why I never throw carrots in there!

    I own a big expensive juicer... way too much effort for day-to-day use!

    1. I've always been told to add carrots. I hate them regularly so juicing them/blending them makes it so much easier.

      I totally agree! I love my juicer - but OMG the work that has to go into it!!
