Down but not out!

Just wanted to let y'all know that I've been down with a cold and we're having the worst pollen season in Atlanta history which means a head that feels like concrete. In fact, the air resembles my favorite post-workout treatI'm still drinking my veggie smoothies twice a day which is starting to taste more and more like dirt so I'm going to have to mix it up a bit. I have yet to buy a VitaMix or a juicer because I can't decide between the two. Either way, they aren't cheap so it's going to have to wait a little while. Luckily I have a wonderful juice place halfway between my trainers studio and my house and I treat myself twice a week to their spinach slam which has mango and pineapple. Delish!!

The scale? Not moving as per usual. I was hoping the juice would be the secret but nothing seems to work. And yes, I'm getting REALLY depressed about it. There IS some light at the end of the tunnel. I can run again in 2 weeks and my foot feels great and I'm feeling pretty energetic despite the pollen (it's from all that spinach!) I know what I need to do - that energy needs to be used for MORE cardio. Ugh! Can't we just do yoga and pilates? :)


  1. I hope you get to feeling better soon! The allergens have been horrible here in Oklahoma as of late as well. Here's to hoping the air clears up for you soon!

  2. Juicer, definitely. Mixers leave the pulp in which slows down the absorption of the nutrients and you can't consume the same volume as you can with juice. I swear by my Breville

  3. Your juice tasting like dirt cracked me up, because that's kind of what I imagine those veggie juices DO taste like! Hope you get some flavor improvement soon...and feel better - allergies are horrible right now!
