I miss banana, I really do. To refresh your memory, I am staying away from fruit that is really high in sugar in order to stabilize my glucose levels. I won’t lie, it’s hard. I did have half a banana in my smoothie today and it was SOOOOO good.
But first, for full accountability, I did end up having half a cantaloupe last night while watching the best episode of Survivor EVER.
I probably should have JUST had that and not the oat/chocolate thing I made because I was craving refreshing sweetness and instead that oat thing was more heavy sweetness. This cantaloupe was REALLY good.
Last night I got everything ready for the gym in the morning but when my alarm went off I was so discombobulated that I hit snooze twice and fell back asleep. So much for that plan. 7 hours is not enough sleep anymore and if I’m going to be getting up at 5:30, then I need to be asleep by 9:30. That’s hard.
This morning, I made the half a banana smoothie:
In that bad boy:
-1 cup homemade almond milk
-1 scoop Mediclear protein powder
-1/2 small banana
-6 frozen strawberries
-~2 cups spinach
-2 TBSP ground flax
-1 tsp honey
The banana made all the difference! Have I mentioned how much I want a Viatmix? Yes, I REALLY want one. But $400 on an appliance just isn’t in the budget right now 🙁
Oh and I saw my doctor yesterday-NO Hashimotos! YAY!!!!! I do have hypothyroidism and I am now taking some thyroid to help with it. Let’s hope this is what I need to be 100%!
