Mern: Glad you peaked at the scale! It is very apparent to me that it motivated you, on this new eating plan. The smoothie had a head of romaine, 2 apples, a banana, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, water and ice. (2 servings) It's called "apple cinnamon green smoothie" and it was really not bad. Went to the store today to pick up some more ingredients (organic) to play around with.
It's hard to judge the calorie burn on the snowshoeing because the amount of snow you are treking through makes a big difference. My buddy makes sure we go through some unbroken spots to "work the glutes". I think that the overall cal burn is similar to lap swimming and running.
To Joanna don't give in or give up! Remember why you are doing this- as I am sure it is not just for the scale.
My goals this week continue, 1200 cals, 1 green tea, exercise 5 times, etc.
