If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

This blog is not meant to inspire anyone. I take no responsibility for what you take away from here. You are here as a guest into my inner thoughts.

Did Someone Say Green Monster??

I keep reading about these Green Monsters (I do believe the name originated with Oh She Glows, and is not referenceing the energy drink of the same name, which my son thought I was giving him and got all excited about for a moment), and I'm seeing more and more of my bloggie friends trying them and liking them. So I decided I was definately missing out.

Off I went to Costco, yesterday and purchased me a supersized bag of spinach. As I'm wandering through the store I'm thinking "little do these people know, I'm going to DRINK this spinach". Yep, I'm weird. I get a kick out of shit like that. Tee hee.

So here it is!

In there is:

50 grams spinach
1/4 cup plain fat free yogurt
1/2 cup light almond breeze
1/2 cup skim milk
2 T PB2 w/ chocolate
1/2 banana
1 T ground flax

That there makes 2 cups of deliciousness for 255 Calories, with 7 grams of fibre and 17 grams of protien. The fat is high, at 17 grams, but I know it's good fat, because of the flax. TONS of Omega 3's in there, which our body does not produce, so we need to get from our foods.

Even the boy liked it! After the disappointment, of course, of it NOT being the giant energy drink he thought I was offering him. And considering how much I detest him drinking those things, you can imagine his confusion. LOL

It's Mother's Day today, and I'm so excited!!! My boys have my whole day planned. Logan is buying me a coffee, from anywhere I want (Starbucks, baby!!). Doug is picking us up at 12:30 and we are going to watch his friends play their baseball game, then we are going for a walk in Cliff park, then going and watching another baseball game. Then we come back here to BBQ Maui ribs and enjoy! A whole day of being outdoors and sporty! I'm so stoked!!

I'm going to pack a picknick lunch of good nutritios stuff to snack on all day. I'm going to get lots of excercise. I'm going to cheer my lungs out. I'm so excited!!

Wishing all of the mummy's out there a wonderful day. And to those of us who have lost a mummy along the way, my heart is with you today, too.

Thanks for listening,
