Includes my go-to, Green Berry Smoothie Recipe.
Day 2, oh my gosh.
I have a double whammy of sore muscles from being back at the gym and jet lag going on.
After yesterday’s Crossfit return I taught a Strong class. It’s a high intensity, tempo training style of class, and thoughts of vomiting did cross my mind as I taught it. My legs were already sore from class, and clearly I haven’t done anything at such high intensity for the last 4 weeks. I am a sore, sorry human being today.
I don’t want to bang on about how rubbish I’m feeling, instead, I thought I’d share my go-to smoothie recipe. It’s pretty tasty and has ingredients I usually have sitting around my house which makes it easy to make at any time.
In fact, the ingredient I’m least likely to have on hand is bananas because I have to hide them from my kids if I want any left. It doesn’t taste like a green smoothie. I usually throw silverbeet in, instead of the spinach because it was growing like gangbusters in my yard.

What I did well:
Put as second blanket on the bed and had a sleep. This is meant to be Summer!
Lots of water today. I’m feeling good about that.
What I could do better:
Take some magnesium for my poor, sore body.
