haha! KINDA back...I'm 37wks pregnant & have gained waaay too much weight! Hoping when I have the little one I can breastfeed to help with weight loss, but also looking at joining groups & reading articles to help learn more about doing so. Not sure how much I'll actually be able to get on here. How are things going with you?

Hey Peppie, thanks so much for the goodie and sweet note. It's so nice to have friends like you and Gail who understand the fight.
emoticon You rock!

I totally binge watched Daredevil and finished the first season today. So good! Also finished season 3 of BBC's Sherlock. Another really great show.

Was able to do some working out today and am hoping to walk a bit tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

God bless you and your sweet hubby!

Sounds like you have a pretty solid plan for smoothies. I think it'll definitely be more doable for you if you just make a batch of them and then drink them throughout the week. That seems to work well for you most of the time =). And yeah, probably if you replace a fruit you're already having with the smoothie, you won't be overdosing too much in the carb area. Something to keep an eye on, for sure.

And I would love to meet up if we ever end up near each other! If you ever travel up to mid- or lower- Michigan, let me know, and we'll see if we can work something out!

If you're looking for super cheap ways to get veggies, frozen is often the way to go. It's awesome because the produce is frozen at the peak of freshness, which means it still has most of its nutrients. And often it's cheaper to buy, say, a bag of frozen diced pepper than it is to buy a bunch of peppers, especially when out of season. And it will keep for as long as you keep it in the freezer. That could be a great way to do smoothies, too. Get some frozen spinach and berries and blend it up with yogurt, milk, or water and a little bit of sweetener. Or stock up when it's on sale and freeze it yourself. Good luck!
