I work with a lot of young (and I mean YOUNG - I'm old enough to be their mother), health and fitness kiddos at the Y. Most of them are current or former swimmers although some have done other sports. One of them is a former division II wrestling stud. They talk a lot about workouts and especially what they eat in during their days. They eat so healthy! I eat so unhealthy. :(
But, I've got some weight to lose and running is starting to come into focus so I figured now is the right time to get, at least, somewhat serious about it. I bought a MagicBullet.
Why? I don't know. I guess juicing and smoothies and whatnot is supposed to be good for you. I don't particularly like smoothies, but I can try. Our tastes change as we get older, right?
My first smoothie was some cashew concoction.
But I tried again the next day.
So far I haven't been in love with these smoothies, but I'll keep trying. Even if I just drink a little I'm getting some nutrients and healthy stuff and eating less calories.
Why is it so hard to be healthy and skinny and fit?
