If you’ve read my blog, you know I’m obsessed with Smoothie King smoothies. They are extremely delicious and healthy! My favorite thing about them is adding veggies that you aren’t really taste in them. Especially for the kids.

I’ve been working out a lot more. Planning things in the future. I want to get healthy for the kids. I went and bought a membership for the Y. I also went and bought a double jogging stroller – those things weigh a ton! Then I add 80 lb. of kids to it, so it’s a workout just trying to walk around with it.

My goal is to lose about 20 lb. and just tone up. I would love to be where I was, before kids. What a scary thought. I also don’t mind the thought of being healthy, just in case the next one shall arrive. It’s been a little hectic, to wake up one day and just realize how not happy you are with yourself. So I’ve been trying to change that.

It’s been a bit hard to eat as healthy as possible. But I know, if I just work out, without getting my eating habits on track, I’m not going to get to where I want to be in the amount of time I want to take. So I’ve been looking into alternative ways to help me get on track. Smoothie King came out with some veggie smoothies. It helps to sneak more veggies into my diet. They introduced this new Veggie Avocado Pineapple smoothie that I’m dying to try. They also have: Apple Kiwi Kale, Berry Carrot Dream and Carrot Kale Dream. All of the flavors are pretty good. The berry one is my favorite.

Check out all they have to offer! You can also sign up to receive a coupon for a $2.99 20-oz smoothie.

Hide the Veggies!

My kids used to eat everything. They used to not be picky eaters. They used to be the best eaters in the whole wide world. Their grandparents would brag about how they would eat whatever was put in front of them.

Until last month. *cue tears*

Birdie now refuses to eat vegetables. Any of them. All of them. I don’t know why. They used to be her favorite thing to eat. Now I have to bribe her in some way, just to eat two peas. It makes me so sad. Tot isn’t quite there yet, but he’s starting to throw green items because Birdie causes such a stink.


We are huge on smoothies though. We frequent our local Smoothie King and their latest and greatest are smoothies with VEGETABLES. I know that’s not exactly new, but, get this… The kids LOVE them.

Smoothie King Meal Replacements

I try really hard every year with New Year’s resolutions. I tend to fail. Every single one of them. So I try really hard not to make any New Year’s resolution, so I can attempt to better myself in some way. We will just call them un-resolutions. The resolutions have a better chance of being completed that way. I want to lose weight, walk more, exercise more, get more tone… Anything, you know, to get rid of the excess baby weight… Just like a good chunk of the people out there.

I try to go on play dates constantly, to get the kids out of the house and socialize with other kids. It’s good for them. I dress and feed them, get them there on time, and forget about myself. Completely. Half the time, I don’t even know what I’m wearing and I’m lucky if I get food in my system at all. Normally, by 4 o’clock, I’m running on 3 cups of coffee. On the way to a playdate, I realized I was early and could actually grab a snack. I decided to stop by Smoothie King and check out their Change A Meal Challenge.

Smoothie King has meal replacement smoothies. They have 20 different types and they are all so different. It helps with all kinds of craving! Chocolate? There’s a smoothie for that! Peanut butter? There’s a smoothie for that! Fruit? There’s a smoothie for that! I love all of the options that there are.

It’s an extremely satisfying smoothie. Did it keep me full until my *only* meal of the day? Yes, it did! It also gave me enough energy to chase after the kids at the park. It was nice.

Smoothie King is also having a competition! Share your goal and you’ll be enter to win prizes. Post some #changeameal selfies and get entered to win every single time! Sign up for their newsletter and get a $2.99 coupon for one of their meal replacement smoothies.
