Orange juice & water (I eyeball the amount until it isn’t too thick)
Ice (to your preference)
A little bit of love :)
I mix my kale, spinach and celery with my orange juice & water first to blend it thoroughly. Then I add my orange, banana and pineapple. Add the rest of the ingredients until it is well blended. This smoothie started as an experiment but it turned out delicious and gives me a lot of energy (I also feel full for much longer) Enjoy the glow this can provide, and as always I am open to new ideas (ingredients etc.)
Have a beautiful Sunday filled with love, light and lots of fruits/veggies
Sometimes when I’m going really fast on my rollerblades I close my eyes & let the hot air flow through my fingertips. I imagine I’m flying instead of overanalyzing the situation & fearing what everyone watching me thinks. Their judgements do not scare me — forgetting what it feels like to truly be alive does.
With that said, I encourage you to stop & think about who & what you are living for… and if it isn’t for yourself, then maybe it’s time to purchase some rollerblades & pretend to fly. Trust me, it feels better than it sounds. And it’s always fun to have an excuse to rock some tube socks while you blast your favorite tunes. Call me crazy, but sometimes I simply need to pick a different type of noise to block out all of the nonsense I tend to fill my head with. What are some things you do to get to your “happy place”?
When the concrete smells hot and your lungs pump hard yet always end up with dirty results, it usually means it’s time to go to the mountains — so that is just what Christopher and I did. And it was absolutely beautiful.
This was the first hike of the summer for me and my legs made sure I felt every stride & step. I was so sore, but it felt good. I’m very grateful for people like Christopher who encourage me to get out & live. I talk so much about it that at times I forget tobe about it. Christopher is like a big brother to me, I always feel better after talking to him. And the best part about it all is when you get in the car you can say to yourself ”Damn it feels good to leave it all in the mountains.“
