What's new..

I HATE being uninspired.  My last entry was a few months back... And the end result of THAT day was damn near the same as any other day in court..  Pieces of data were missing, someone needs to find it..  blah blah..  Back again next month. Fast forward a few months.  Feb 15th.  I won't go into the annoying shitty details, but now rather than going to his house sat 8am she goes Friday after school.  She's very angry.  The counselor flat out LIED in her report and put words into my mouth that were never said.  Long story short, I'm kind of GLAD she goes Friday - Sunday night now.  These last few months have been... beyond rough.  Arguments escalated between she and I as well as he and I.  And she turned 13 this month to boot.  AND that whole "became a woman" thing hit.  She's an emotional hormonal wreck.  I have just been ignoring everything.  I stopped my smoothies, and my diet went to shit.  I have gained like 10 lbs in the last few months.  My jeans don't fit.  What did I do? How did I get here?   Doesn't really matter anymore.  I have already started changing things.  :)  One is I got my new Vitamix 750 Pro.  OH BOY DO I LOVE IT.  I'm back on my smoothies and have already dropped a few pounds because of it.  A friend of mine has some health issues, so I told him he should be drinking green smoothies..  I made the following recipe and brought him some.  He was REALLY surprised how yummy it was...  It's nice to help others.. balances out shitty days at home.  :) 

6 or so leaves of Kale
a handful of Italian Parsely
a handful of regular Parsely
6 leaves Dandelion Root
a peeled knuckle size chunk of ginger
a few shakes of cinnamon
2 tsp raw organic honey
some ground up rolled oats (like flour consistency)
10oz green tea
1/2 fresh pineapple WITH the core
1 green apple
1 banana
1 orange (WITH the white pith skin part)
1 bag organic frozen raspberries
2 tsp flax meal
2 tsp maca powder
1/2 lemon juice

Blend it all in a big blender, it yields about 64 ounces of yummy smoothies...  I usually put 1/2 in 32oz mason jars and drink one each day.  1/2 for Breakfast and 1/2 for lunch or snack.  GOOD stuff...  Note:  I never measure smoothies.. just toss stuff into the blender... if it doesn't taste good after blending, just add more sweet stuff  :)
Tonight I am going to mix it up and use a grapefruit and add some cucumber.. 
Have a great day er'body~
