Ever since me and Tommy decided on a wedding date, my brain instantly screamed DIET! I am not mad diet crazy nor am I a hardcore fitness kind of girl. BUT that's all about to change! I have exactly 11 months to whip my body into shape and it starts right here. Along my way I will be sharing my experiences with you, new gym gear, gym workouts (if any! ha), diet changes and my own recipes.
To start light, last week I purchased a blender and have since swapped my usual breakfast for a fruit smoothie. Here is one of my quick recipes, it only takes 2 minutes!
1 Ripe Banana
Handful of berries
I tablespoon of low fat natural yogurt
Quarter glass of milk
3-4 Ice Cubes (optional)
I place it all in the blender and blend for 1 minute, using the ice crushing pulse to ensure it's smooth.
VOILA! So easy! I have had smoothies for the past week now and I feel so energised and less drowsy than before. My favourite combinations are Banana and Mango, Banana and Berries of just berries on its own. I don't put any sweetener in as I find the fruits have natural sugars but if you wish, you can always add a dollop of honey or syrup.
These smoothies fill me up so quick and I normally make 2 glasses every morning. I have one around 9-10am and the next at around 1pm. Accompanied with small healthy snacks and a low fat dinner.
I am also planning to buy a juicer, any juicing fanatics out there be kind enough to recommend me one?
