This week has been really nice;) I've been to the gym this week except today because I had to weigh-in for the contest that I'm in sponsored by DePaul Hospital. I must say I'm super excited because I've lost 5 pounds since my last weigh- in on Sept. 12th. My hard work is paying off;)
Last night I tried out my Nutribullet and I must say I'm in love! I decided to try my own concoction of fruits, veggies, and nuts for my combo. So I decided on baby spinach, pineapples, blueberries, and almonds.
So after following the directions of putting it together and adding water to the mix, I gave it a whirl....

The end product was this.
So after a few sips, I was somewhat pleased. Obviously with this being my first time using the machine I learned a few things. When you use nuts in your mix to make sure you let it mix for a while longer to make sure it chops up the nuts and doesn't leave any medium size pieces which of course i found out the hard way when one almond piece tried to log itself between two of my teeth. The flavor was a little bit bland but I could definitely taste the pineapple. I must confess though I did make another one this morning for breakfast without the almonds and I still enjoyed it.
I'm going to tell you the big kicker about this product. I enjoyed drinking a veggie I would never would have considered even eating in a salad, because I hate salads. That alone was a winner but also a huge plus was cleanup. I was able to put everything back within 5 minutes. It did come with a book with plenty of recipes which I will eventually try but for now I'm having fun just playing around and making up my own mixtures.

Sometimes it takes a long time to finally understand somethings in your life are not meant to be. Obviously being sad sets in but I know the elation part will kick in. It might not be so soon, but I know it will come. I have to see it as a way of God intervening and letting me know this person wasn't meant to be in my life in the long run and I need to break away. I remember earlier this week, I was at my gym and I was waiting for one of my classes to start. This saying popped into my head and I wrote it up and posted it to my Instagram.

Some lessons in life suck, but need to be taught. I've learned that when my 6th sense is knocking, I better start listening.
