I hope you all had a happy and healthy weekend. Our weekend actually turned out pretty nice so far, despite the strange weather yesterday. Let’s just say the hoodies are back in their resting spots for now :(.
Anyway, I just want to let you guys know that this morning I made my shake with the Coconut Milk…..YUCK! I did not like it a bit Sam I Am LOL. I ended up adding a touch of vanilla extract and a splenda packet and managed to get it down. I’m going to have to play around with it, but so far for me the Light Vanilla Soy Milk is the champ. I will put the goodie list below, there isn’t a picture because I was mad LOL.
Coconut Milk (Orignal in the red carton/sweetned) Strawberry Shake:
-1 1/2 cups coconut milk
-1 package (60z) frozen strawberries
-1 1/2 cups fresh not frozen spinach
-1 nice sized scoop of chocolate Amazing Grass
Combine in blender, blend well, pour and enjoy
I will keep trying, and let you know what I come up with. I love to use the Coconut Milk for cooking and baking though!
So after my shake I geared up and hit FIT WORLD!!! I just went for cardio today since I have Kick N Abs with Sgt. Slaughter tomorrow and she’s all about Kick N My A$$ due to the 100 Day Challenge! I love it though ;). I worked it out on the Star Trac Tready and did the 5K loop. I love that a machine does everything for me….what did they do back in the day?! I have an idea!

Now, on to today’s post topic! Last night Girl Gone Healthy achieved the goal I set out to meet from the get go. When I began GGH I wanted it to be a melting pot of women in all different levels of fitness and ranging in sizes and shapes! I had the pleasure of chatting with a wonderful new GGH’er last night via Twitter. This wonderful lady has decided to take control of her life and weight and lose 75 pounds. She is a mom and very busy and the typical GGH reader. She turns to fast food in a pinch and has been afraid to branch out and try new foods. I am proud to say she is stocking her cabinets with HEALTHY food and snacks and AMAZING GRASS!!!!! That is what is all about friends. I am here to show that YOU can do this. For friends and family that know me personally you all know that I adore FOOD! I love to cook, entertain, bake, eat and most of the time it was in large amounts and it was food that was the complete opposite of healthy. I grew up in Texas with places like Whataburger, Jack In the Box, and Sonic…..and good Lord is it all good. Everything is deep friend or battered with something. I grew up eating foods that were old family recipes full of butter, oil and goodness only knows what else. Not to say my mom didn’t make healthy meals but if you offer me grilled fish over a Sonic Brown Bag Deal with Cheesey Tots and a Route 44 Cherry Limeade with extra cherries (oh yea I still speak fast food LOL) I’m taking the Sonic. However, now I can honestly say that I would choose the grilled fish and have one of the cheesey tots. It’s all about really wanting it for yourself and never looking back. You also have to have the support, HAVE TO! That’s why I am here! I want to be your support. I want to encourage all of you to start your own 100 Day Challenge, no matter what the goal may be! If you want something bad enough, you can get it and you can do it! Don’t let people brush you off and say that’s impossible. If you can see yourself doing it then it can be done! I hope that this inspires some of you to contact me and tell me about YOUR 100 Day Challenge! There is power in numbers friends and we can start a wave all the way to the Ellen show!!!! Let’s do it!
I want to wrap up with the messages I received this morning from my newest GGH’er, it really warmed my heart.
@GirlGoneHealthy So I have to tell you, I was thinking before I fell asleep about our conversation. I think you’re the first person to say that I CAN do it, instead of thinking that my goal is unrealistic. Thank you – you have no idea how much that means!
YES!!! That makes what I do worth it! And below is her status for the day!
@GirlGoneHealthy off to enjoy the day with the kids and stock up those cupboards to prepare for a week of success!!
