A Smmooothie-Maker is Born!

Today, I made my first smoothie! The stuff that goes into this is perfect for your afternoon pick me up and soo much better for you than all that crazy caffeine that many people ingest. I learned this ( that smoothies) are perfect for this of off: Spark People! Yes, they have articles on that and a ton of other stuff. AND you get Spark Points for reading it! I share what I love people. I can't help it!

Would you like to know what was in it?

Tart's Fantastic and Super Easy Smoothie:

5 Huge Strawberries (no green stuff) cut in half
4 cherries (no pits. Turns out these suckers can really stain your fingers and whatnot!)
Two plops of yogurt (mine was plain. This is fine for taste because you add...)
Two Sweet & Lows (they are off the carcinogen list. Splenda works too. Try to keep the sugar OUT of this, people!)
and a touch of milk to get things goin' (mine is skim, cause I'm a purist. I guess something slightly fattier won't be too bad)

I put everything in a blender in the exact order I just told you about. I have the cutest little 0ne-smoother blender. It was my Dad's, which my Mother had gotten for him. I know he'd want it put to good use. I am so proud of myself, because I thought of this. I didn't have a recipe to go off of. But I see no reason not to share, because all of this stuff is goooood for you! God Bless you and your body.

Oh, AND I am on my first day of Phentermine, a generic fo Adipex-P. I am not ashamed to say I am taking my first diet pill and it is prescribed by my Dr. I am being monitored once a month as well. I take a buttload of meds, and have for a long time. Now that I am on Seroquel, I have put on pounds, and fast. They might as well say Yes I'd like my prescription for Seroquel and an order of bedunky-dunk butt. But I'm going to see how this goes. And I don't want no flak for it. I'm still trying to eat better and exercise more. But I tell no lies: I'm getting a little help this time. And I have hope now. And there's Nothing wrong with that!

I was on phentermine 5 years ago...it worked wonderfully well. Keep an eye on your blood pressure though...aside from the doc follow-ups...it can spike pretty quickly without warning. And be prepared to drink lots and lots of water...phentermine made me very thirsty.
