Blueberry Blast

Part of my quest is to eat better.  Can’t always promise I will eat better – lol, but when I come across good things I like to share.  I’ve had my share of blenders and they never seem to do a really good job.  So, I finally broke down and purchased the Ninja blender.  It’s a fantastic blender and extremely quick.  I like to make smoothies and hopefully this one blender will last for a while.

My first concoction was the Blueberry Blast.

Blueberry Blast Smoothie

Mileage Stats Recap 1 – 6 July

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July.  We’ve been having some great weather here in Belleville.  It hovered in the 80s, so not too hot and no humidity, perfect for grilling and fireworks!  I enjoyed the festivities without the clammy, sweaty skin, always a plus.

Pretty good week.  I incorporated some training on Friday with a co-worker who is just beginning his journey in exercise.  He’s excited and I’m excited for him.  We created a small team of co-workers and will be participating in the Warrior Dash in the Fall.  It’s a great motivator and I have no doubt he’ll be happy when he completes the race.  It’s gratifying to share my enthusiasm with him.

Total miles completed this week = 15.43 – 10,798.27 remaining.

Always run with your head up, or your tiara may fall off….
