Shaking up my routine

I’m a boring person in my daily habits.

I eat the same foods every day; until I grow absolutely sick of it and then switch it up and stay with that for a looong time again.

I stick to the same routine and enjoy the luxury of simplicity and doing what works.

But this has got to be changed up! I know that habits are good and I have no intention of shifting to habits that are un-good 🙂 What I am needing is just to shake things up!

Literally!

I am making this month the month to try a new and inspired recipe every day for my daily dense food source; Shakeology.

My “go to” recipe looks like this, every single day! 🙂

1 scoop chocolate (my all time favorite although once in awhile you’ll see me try out vanilla or strawberry)

1 cup ice

1 cup water

1 Tblsp peanut butter

Blend in my VitaMix blender and drink/eat/scoop out of blender. Hey, whatever works at the time! 😉

Now, I will be committing to a different recipe every day this month and then sharing what I like and dislike. The dislikes most likely will never grace my lips again…seriously! And the LIKES may or may not be my newfound favorites (until I grow sick of them, if that is possible!)

So here I go with some recipe ideas….the problem today is in choosing what is FIRST! :-/
