I woke up excited and very much looking forward to today.
And then I realized I was still in some pain from our yard work and landscaping overhaul this weekend.
We pulled some overgrown shrubs from the front of our home and re-purposed them for our back yard and along our fence. Then, I weeded and picked up a ton of debris from the yard. I pulled something in my neck or back because yesterday morning I woke up in severe pain - OUCH.
Anyways, back to the point of this post! I weighed myself and took my measurements for my bust, waist and hips. I've now got my starting weight and stats.
Then, it came time for breakfast for my first shake. I opened the canister of the Vanilla Cinch mix and it smelled really good!
After doing a little research on the Internet, I came across some Cinch shake recipes and decided on the Strawberry Banana recipe:
• Cinch Vanilla Shake Mix
• 8 oz. non-fat milk or low-fat soy milk
• 3 frozen, unsweetened strawberries
• 1-2 medium banana (I used one banana)
• 4-6 ice cubes
Blend until creamy.
I gotta say - it was really good. Tasted like a milk shake. It was smooth, creamy and really good.
It made enough to fill my glass almost twice and I am pretty full right now!
I also decided two things while making my Cinch breakfast:
1. I really dislike my white, 1980's builder grade kitchen counter tops.
2. I'm thinking I need to invest in a better blender. This one has done fantastic considering I love green smoothies and it makes the kale very smooth despite not being overly powerful.
So, cheers to day one and I'll check back in soon with more!
