Happy Tuesday! I really enjoyed this smoothie today! I try to avoid caffeine on a regular basis but once in a while I will take a little energy boost to motivate myself to be more productive. I have been trying bee pollen this week to see if I notice any effect and so far its hard to tell. I have been able to sleep better at night but I have been getting a ton of sunshine in the past few days too so it may also be the fabulous benefits of the highly elusive sunshine (in Western Washington at least).
I have started taking a zumba class at the gym which is totally out of my comfort zone. I think if something is out of your comfort zone then it probably means you need to do it! How else do you grow as a person? I have never been someone who feels comfortable dancing so I am excited to try some right brain exercise instead of just hitting the machines or the track!
