When I first started making fruit and veggie smoothies, it was to add more of both into my life. At the time I was eating a bowl full of
shredded wheat sugar every morning for breakfast. When I look at the photo now of my breakfast, with a couple of handfuls of spinach included, I am proud of myself. It took a couple of years to build this into my mostly daily routine and there were growing pains along the way. A co-worker once commented that it looked like I was drinking baby poop. Yum. That’s appetizing.
Now it’s kind of a family thing: I share with Honey what he affectionately calls sludge. Some days it tastes better than others. Have you ever burped cucumbers after breakfast? Yeah, I don’t add those to the blender anymore.
Don’t be afraid to fail. Moving forward has a lot to do with just getting started, over and over again.
If you have a goal to improve your eating habits, follow Nike’s encouragement and just do it. Don’t wait for the holidays to be over. Don’t wait for January 1st. There will never be a ‘perfect’ time.
Thinking about Wheaties and Nike’s unforgettable slogan makes me think also about hamburgers; specifically one with 2 all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun. Yep, every once in a while I still have to enjoy one of my ultimate comfort foods, a Big Mac.
