Tonight’s Workout, My Obsession of the Week and Morning Smoothie

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!
Last night I finally got back on the treadmill. Like I had mentioned I kind of slacked off with my running during the Holidays. So I decided to start back slow and just jog a mile. When I started I was pretty nervous but as I kept going I remembered why I really do love to run. It is such a stress reliever. I am glad I am back to it! Here is my workout for tonight. ( I am keeping my running this week at just 1 mile)
Now to my obsession of the week!
Whoever came up with yogurt dressing is just brilliant. I was nervous that they would taste like most low fat dressing but they taste like the real deal and ONLY have 45 calories.

As you can see I enjoyed the new ranch dressing on my salad with my dinner.
I had spag squash with low sugar marinara and ground turkey. The salad of course was my favorite part. I think I was a rabbit in a past life.

Now to my morning smoothie. I sure have missed these. I'm not really sure why I haven't made them lately, maybe because it is FREEZING outside. But this week it hasn't been bad so I have been whipping up some yummy smoothies.
Here is this mornings.
What you will need
handful of spinach
1 kiwi
2 1/2 pieces unsweetened pineapple
1/2 of a lemon (juice)
1 banana
1 cup of light vanilla almond milk
It hit the spot! I can't wait to come up with new ones! I will definitely be sharing these more often!

  1. I think everyone slacks off during the holidays. It's just hard to keep fit when there's so much food around! Hahaha! What matters is that you start with your fitness routine right away. I think if you're keeping fit for most of the day, a little binging in December won't do any harm. Keep in mind, portion control though. It might actually be helpful as you're rewarding yourself. By the way, your smoothie looks delicious. I might try making that sometime.
