Shake Your Booty

Well, you don't have to really, but it will make me smile if you do. I have this problem with saying those words. I like to put them to different tunes like the theme song to the Howdy Doody show. People think I have Terret's Syndrome because of this. My family especially likes it when I do it in public places like the grocery store. My little well kept secret.

Did I mention I'm on a healthier eating kick to help me lose weight? It's not a diet. I'm very adamant about that. It's just improving what I eat and cutting out fried and fatty foods. I've been doing pretty well. Eating some cereal or a smoothie in the morning, having a small lunch with a salad. I haven't lost any weight yet, but I haven't been able to exercise either. At least, I haven't gained weight.

Here's one of my smoothie recipes. Some of you may all ready know this one, but it's my favorite. Feel free to share smoothie recipes with me if you have any.

1 1/4 cup of orange juice
1 banana
1 1/4 cup of frozen mixed berries
1/2 cups of lowfat yogurt
1 tablespoon of sugar

Combine oj, banana, yogurt, and sugar in blender. Add berries slowly while blender is running. Blend until creamy.

That smoothie will help you shake your booty all day long.

Here's a taste of one of my new pics. I really like how it turned out. I guess that book I got on Sunday knew what they were talking about. Much better than my old pics, and a lot easier to get. The item in the pic is my Atomium ring recently relisted on Etsy.

Great photo..and you know I love the ring!

Good for you for making healthy choices! Your body will thank you later. I made the switch probably about 10 years ago--cut out as much saturated fat as I can, keep my cholesterol as low as I can, drink no soda, etc. Currently do 20-30 minutes 5x week on an elliptical.

lovely photo and ring!

and, yay for eating better . . . it is exactly what i do -- NOT a diet, but just making "better choices" as my sister says! :) and, when i coupled it with exercise (which admittedly, i've been slacking on lately) i did lose a little weight, but more importantly, just *felt* better! good luck!

oh, and thanks, now i'll have "shake your booty" running through my head all morning ;)

That ring is gorgeous!

Here is the smoothie that gets me shaking my booty:

1 banana
1 - 2 cups of frozen berries
1 container of strawberry Stoneyfield Farm fat free yogurt
skim milk to cover all the above ingredients in the blender

Not very precise, but very yummy.

Good for you on the healthy eating. I've been doing the same thing since Christmas... I just looked at my dessert plate and said, "that's it!" I've been pretty good since :) I used to be a pretty healthy eater normally, but somehow a lot of bad foods crept into my diet over the last two years.

Anyway, good luck to you!
