    That's pretty good that the council provided boxing classes. What a great initiative for the mums. I don't think my council does.

    I work full time and have a 12 month old DS, I struggle to exercise. But there's no excuses, I got to do it!!! I want to be a healthy mummy.

    I'm not a fan of dark chocolate! Special K have these biscuit bars out and they are only 100 calories, so they are often my little treat.

    The great thing about green smoothies is that you can put basically anything you want in them.....well that goes for any smoothie really.
    we are on a budget so I use what I can depending on the food shop I have done that week.

    for the past 3 days I've had
    spinach
    cos lettuce
    cucumber
    pear
    blueberries
    chia seeds

    and the same again but with banana & strawberries instead of the pear & blueberries!

    you can add anything really. They smell like lawn clippings haha, but now I crave them everyday!!

    Was it nice?

    I'm can't eat Kale. I'll have to adapt some if the recipes or just leave it out!

    I just put a medium sized handful of the leaves in... and about the same for the spinach...

    I don't really like banana so all I could taste was that, LOL, but it wasn't bad at all - as in I would make it and drink it again!

    I do need to find a way to blend up the greens a little bit finer (maybe mix with water?) as it was a little lumpy (aka: as another PP said 'lawn clipper-ish) for me.

    With the kale @pisang, you can also take the stems off and break the leaves into chip size pieces, spray with oil and seasoning and bake until crisp!

    Tomorrow I will try cranberry juice, coconut oil, spinach, kale, ginger and ice...
