3 things you need to survive January

Here are the three things that have been keeping me sane during this cold month of January...

1. Exercise TV - Comcast On Demand
I especially like Jillian Michaels, Bigger Loser with Bob, and most of the A List body workouts.

2. Fruit Smoothies

My sister introduced these to me. They taste good and are very healthy for you! It inlcudes a fruit, veggie, and dairy serving just in one drink. And if you are doing weight watchers, they only count for 4 points. It totally fills you up too! Here is the recipe:
1 cup frozen berries (i buy the BIG bag from costco)
1 light yoplait yogurt (any flavor)
1/2 cup apple juice
1/2 cup water
2 1/2 cups of spinach (BIG bag of fresh spinach from costco)
Mix all on a blender and DRINK!

3. Girl's Night Out
Every woman needs to have some time away with their girlfriends. I am lucky to have so many fun girls to hang out with from church and in my neighborhood.

I agree on every level. There is something about the blah's of January isn't there? Can't wait to try the smoothie recipe.

Happy Belated Birthday!

Great list of must-haves for a Chicago Winter. Here is a site for a great healthy smoothie. http://greensmoothiegirl.com I must say that I think the vita-mix would be a little more delicious though... my blender doesn't do so great.
