Day five of Green Drinking.
Finally lost two pounds! Yup two miserable pesky, sticky, prickly pounds that have been glued to me for months! Months, I say!
So, I’m not really an expert with this green stuff yet, but I sure am learning a few things. I’d like to share, just in case you are contemplating the possibility of adding green drinks to your life.
I bet the first thing you might be wondering is where all this green stuff goes. [Am I close?] Well, what goes in does come out! And, yes, it has had an effect on what comes out. It’s a new color for me! Sort of somewhere between avocado and olive.
Just in case you were wondering.
I also have had a big change in the dishes department. I’ve not had a plate, pan, bowl or silverware to wash. But I can’t keep up with the smoothie containers. I have all these Camelbak water thingies I’ve not used for a while. I have stainless-steel hydration units and thermal bottles and expensive insulated hiking thingamabobs that have just been taking up a whole shelf in my plastics cupboard. Now, I have anywhere from 3 – 5 in the dishwasher at a time. And another 2-3 in the fridge or freezer. Oh, and one’s in the car.
And I’ve been using Spray and Wash more regularly because, how can I say this, I’m a sloppy sipper! I don’t really get my lips firmly planted around the big chunky plastic straws that come with these containers and I sometimes drool. Spray and Wash works wonderfully well, and I don’t have a stain to prove it!
The biggest difference is in my cravings! What cravings?
I don’t know how long that will last but I’m all for it! My cravings have made me miserable for years! They’ve pretty much put a half-Nelson on any long-term weight loss I’ve managed. [Yes I actually did have to look that up. I Googled names of wrestling holds.][I love Google!]
Last, but not least, it has cut way down on my shopping! Wow, I pretty much stick in the produce aisle! I’ve used up my carrots, spinach, bananas, strawberries. I’ve used some blueberries that I had given up on. I’ve cleaned out the fridge! I’ve saved money.
Seriously, I hope I’m not speaking prematurely. I hope this lasts for another week or two.
Off to buy a bottle brush!
