It's really windy today, like 14 mph windy, coming out of the south. Yesterday was nothing compared to this. And I'm tired today, which doesn't help.
So I did two miles, with a short walk at the end for the dog's benefit. The temperature is above freezing, but that wind made for a pretty chilly run.
I finally bought some beets and added one to my smoothie today! I have to say, the color is much improved. I was afraid it would turn brown from the combination of red and green, but the beet coloring is way stronger. Not that the color should matter, but it does, a little.
Yesterday, I meant to take the second half of my smoothie with me to work, but I forgot it, and Eric drank it when he got home. So he made me another one before we went to bed, which was nice. I needed the other half of that smoothie to make my vegetable and fruit quota for the day. :)
So far, so good with the smoothies. I don't expect anything life-changing to happen this week, but over time, I think it will make a difference. I wasn't getting enough before and until Dan brought smoothies to my attention, I didn't have any idea what to do about it. Thanks, Dan!
I'm going to try to come up with an average cost for these smoothies. I haven't been keeping my receipts, but I will start next time I go to the grocery store. I've still got the SNAP Challenge on my mind.
