Got me an early Christmas present!

How's your weekend going?

I'm doing a quick drive-by post because I'm so excited... look what I bought today:

I know some of my previous posts, like avocado ice cream, used a food processor but what you couldn't tell from the pictures is that my current food processor only holds one cup! ONE CUP! It was tiny! So I got this at Costco today. I was kinda debating the whole blender-food-processor-in-one machine but when it comes down to it, I don't have much space to have too many kitchen appliances... so I got a combo. Haven't used it yet but will tomorrow morning when I make my morning smoothie. I also got all my regulars at Costco too:

Yup, that's pre-cut butternut squash! Just drizzle with a little olive oil and throw into the oven to roast. Yummy!

I also stopped by Whole Foods today to finally pick up chia seeds and some green supplements I've been dying to try:
Now, I know I'm a hard-core Shakeology fan - still drink one every morning! - but I wanted to see what else is out there and I've heard some really good things about Amazing Grass products. I picked up a few sample packets and will make my first one tomorrow morning. Can't wait!

On a side note:
I am officially back on track!

Yesterday, nutrition was spot on and I actually stayed after my hour-long PT session to get in a little more cardio. Today, nutrition is still spot on and I got my butt moving on my elliptical!!!!! Something I haven't done in over a month... move on my own that is. For the last month or so, the only exercise I've been getting have been my twice-a-week PT sessions. SERIOUSLY, that's it! So I'm damn proud of myself for moving on my own two days in a row! YAY me!

Love your new gadget ! I've been wanting one of those for a long time ! Maybe Santa is listening and will surprise me ...... It feels good to be back on track again . But what I am starting to realize is sometimes it does a body good to give the body some downtime in order to recover. It brings you back to program more motivated than ever !

Love that new TOY. I would love to hear about how you like it after you have used it for a few days. I'm looking to get one myself.

I love love love your blog. It's obvious how truly committed you are to a "new and healthier life," both physically and emotionally. Isn't it strange how our insides change when our outsides do the same... and vice-versa!

I actually tend to believe insides come first... at least the commitment to "wanting the new (X)." Before you began this whole new you, you made a decision, yeah?

You have a way of connecting with us. Your excitement comes flying through my computer!!!!!

Yes, I am anxious to hear your review of the Cuisinart! Okay, I have to know...what are those potato looking things in that picture?

Also, I'm sure you've talked about this on here and I just missed it...but I didn't know you use Shakeology. Why do you like it? (just curious) I've been thinking of trying it but hadn't heard a whole lot about it from my own peeps.
