I think I finally have it...my word for the year! (It only took me 7 weeks. Shhh...)
I want to be bold in my faith. Bold in my business. Bold in reaching out, developing and nurturing friendships. Bold in making the changes that need to be made to improve my health and fitness. Lots of boldness this year!
I sat down recently and wrote down some of my goals for the year. Some of them scare the bejeezus out of me (in the best way!). Lose 60 pounds? Eeek! Grow my blog, my social media, my new business...EEEK! I'm going to need all the boldness I can get. I'm also going to need all the support I can get! Physical support, emotional support, and one that I tend to forget about...immune support! That's right. I have too much to get done to leave my immune system unsupported. Mama's...who's with me? Ain't nobody got time for that!
I am a firm believer in food and its ability to keep us healthy. I love making myself a big old smoothie first thing in the morning. It is a great way to get all sorts of vitamins, anti-oxidants and other goodies into your body right away.
Here are my favorite smoothie add-ins;
- Citrus Juice: Tried and true, good ol' Vitamin C! Go for orange if you like sweet, or grapefruit if you want a little zing!
- Berries: Great source of antioxidants
- Pineapple: Another great source of Vitamin C!
- Greens: I almost always have spinach on hand. Kale, or swiss chard are great options, too!
- Greek yogurt: Probiotics to help keep your gut in balance
- Cinnamon: Super good for you. I put cinnamon in everything I can!
- Shakeology: My favorite source of super food nutrition! So much goodness in one place!
Now, to the mix & match part. Here is my basic smoothie recipe:
1 C liquid
1 C fruit
1 C greens
1 scoop Greenberry Shakeology
2 dollops greek yogurt
Ok, so it's not the prettiest of smoothies. But it is yummy, and a fantastic immune supporter!
Now, let's be honest, mamas (and daddies!)...As easy as this smoothie is to put together, some days there just is. no. time! I picked up some Ester-C at Walmart the other day. It’s in the vitamin section, and bonus...it’s on Rollback!
I have started keeping it on hand for those days when a homemade treat just isn't going to happen. It is a powerhouse immune system supporter, and I love knowing that it has my back! It offers 24 hour immune support, even when I don’t have time to think about it. Ester-C is a vitamin C supplement that is designed to actually stay in your white blood cells. How cool is that? One serving daily of 1000 mg of Ester-C® delivers 24-hour immune support 365 days a year.*
Like I said, my word for this year is “bold”. Making changes in my health and fitness is intimidating, but I am going to boldly jump in, and Ester-C is going to help me!
