Amazing Grass - so far I have tried the Chocolate Amazing Meal, Original Amazing Meal, Pomegranate Green Food, the Green superfood bar and Chocolate Green superfood bar. Whenever I make a smoothie now, I use the fun cup! I am impressed with this stuff. It has so much going on - so many amazing ingredients, and yet, it doesn't taste like you are drinking or eating all of those ingredients.
The Original Green Superfood did not change the taste of my smoothie with spinach, bananas and berries. The Berry Green added a berry flavor to my smoothie - it was like having a dessert. The CHOCOLATE... oh man. This was like drinking chocolate milk. YUM!
The bars: Green superfood bar : maybe reminded me of Odwalla superfood bar. This was OK. I could tell it was good for me, if you know what I mean! The chocolate one is the same but coated in chocolate. I'll take it!!
So far, I really like this stuff! I have my Aria Protein Powder and some Hemp protein powder that I purchased at Trader Joe's - but these have more beneficial ingredients and flavors, chocolate especially, give it a great taste! I found that they sell it on amazon too so check that out! I'll keep you updated as I try the other flavors.
So you want to try it? Amazing Grass will be an item for the auction coming up July 20th!! Mark those calendars!!

I forgot to do a 5 month postpartum wellness post, so here's where I am:
Body: Ehh. I'm not thrilled with my beach body right now. It is my stomach that seems to be the biggest problem. I look like I'm 3 months pregnant and want my abs back.
Mental/Emotional: I feel that since it is summer it is much easier for me to be home and happy about it, since no one is working (that I work with) - since I am a teacher! Most days I wonder how I will ever leave Nick 5 days/week until he is in school, and pray that a part-time position comes up that I can take on until that time! Sometimes I feel clueless and wonder what I am doing day after day and constantly wish I could have the same schedule everyday (for Nick - napping/eating, etc)- but I can't seem to get there.
Running: I have definitely a lost mojo right now. I'm really trying to get back into it. I'm in trial mode as far as running a hard marathon to see what I can do - that would be Steamtown in October. I didn't sign up, as I want to see how the training goes. So far, I skipped the 2nd week's longrun and I did this weekend's long run this morning and it dragged. I'm not motivated to work hard, alone, on the treadmill.
I kind of want to switch it up and find a tri to train for!
