I popped into faceboook a little earlier to read as usual .. the post new year Monday Morning meme’s ..
Many have gone back to work , started new jobs or have embarked on new to-do lists and not to to forget those who started or rejected the annual resolution .. I had only scrolled for a minute ..but …
It was time to log out …
Flashback to 2015 when you promised to make that change ,
you were going to run that extra mile , put the gym membership to use and overall live better ..
How did you do on delivering ?
- Did you try the Baobab powder , stuck in between the Cornflakes and Sweet and Salty Popcorn ?
- Were you able to get past the taste of the brand new .. near full packet of Spirulina .. or is it still sitting neatly beside the toaster …
- Did you complete that 31 day Squat Challenge or use that invite to the Zumba taster session .. … hmmm ?
- I type this with a raised eyebrow and a smile
Hey .. honestly .. who am I , or any one else to judge ?
Whether you did or didnt … it’s the FIRST Monday of 2016 which means we get to try again , but this time – lets take it at a more do-able pace shall we
Be kinder to yourself this year , make resetting your bodyclock a fun job on the outside as well as the inside .
And remember… this change , this year … should be about YOU !
Learn to love you within the process .. trust me !
There is inequivocally NO need to keep up with the million updates this year ..
Back to my morning ..
I found myself looking into space for a moment in time , the silence was comforting .. rubbed my face and it dawned .. the much needed solitary moments were coming to an end .. in a way , those moment’s have played a pivotal role in my own healing .
It was time to gather all the lessons ,thoughts and memories of yesteryear and head to the filter button ..
I had made it , 2016 was here … no more talk of what I would do ‘NEXT YEAR ‘ or how I could’ve done this or that better ..
We were here , I grabbed my diary and began to open it … but first .. a smoothie was in order ..
I Turned on the juicer and began to Juice
4 Variety of Pear
( why 4 ? you wonder I have a thing for them really – , Conference, Red Anjou , Green Anjou , Chinese , Avocado …the list goes on and I love juicing them all )
Then blended it with
2 Banana (I’ll use 1 and half next time )
2 Moringa seeds
2 shakes of Nutmeg and a sprinkle of Cinnamon later ..
I came back with this spicy little number …
My body obviously needed it as I happily (and just a little greedily ) , slurped it to the end and for once didn’t mind the stowaway lumps of banana that had escaped the blender
To describe this smoothie I would say it was “light and creamy “, comforting in fact , a very nice breakfast alternative for the new year …
Pears , Guava and Banana all support your digestive system and help to soothe your stomach , in addition to housing a great source of Vitamin C and Fibre … both Pear and Guave both help to regulate blood sugar levels , so great for those with Sugar Cravings , Diabetes or Sugar Intolernace
