T Stands for We Finally got Moved!

HELLLLOOOOO Friends!  Gosh, it has been ages since I've had a chance to join the T-Gang, or even get a post written.  What a crazy....insane ( and not to mention scorching hot) summer it has been.

So what's in the cupppas this morning?   Green chocolate shake, since the glass is dark gray I took the photo before I screwed the lid on. It is a chocolate, plant based, protein with a scoop of powdered greens and two large pinches of fresh spinach mixed with coconut milk and blended with ice.  This has been my "go to" breakfast this summer......trying to get a little healthier.  This particular shake is an Arbonne shake.  My son and DIL work out at a gym and got started in this and are selling it.  So to help support them I ordered some.....very pricey!!  It starts with a 30 day rest, that is two shakes, two small snacks and a light meal per coffee!  LOL!!! I really did not drink coffee for 21 days.............I couldn't do the full 30 days and handle the stress of packing up 41 years and getting moved ( well, that's my story ;))   Long story short, I lost 10 pounds and then a few more by at least having the shake in the morning. Plus I have learned to really read labels and I try to eat organic, cage free and grass fed meat at home. I have scouted the local health food stores and have found alternative plant based protein shakes to replace the pricey stuff! So what is in the cup??   LOL!!! COFFEE!  I still don't drink near the coffee I used to.  I have become a tea drinker 50% of the time.......GASP!!

I'm now on my first, of four, bottles of water for the day.......the more I drink the more I want and water is so good for the body.  The four GDs are already here and busy keeping busy.   Yep! I took the four of them and MOVED........but they were all great hep to me, even if it was just taking things to the trash can.....LOL!  But more about all that later, time to post and link up with Elizabeth to visit with the rest of the T-Gang.

Thanks for stopping by

  2. Oh my gosh, we did both appear today didn't we? I'll get to me tea post tomorrow though. Its funny, as I began checking on blogger friends this morning I noticed right away you had been gone about the same time I have been. I didn't move. Glad to hear from you my friend.

  3. I am new to the T Party gang-your healthy shakes sound good-that last few years after being retired I have been gaining weight which is new to me dilema-once fall hits I will back walking every day-less bugs and heat that way.
    Happy T Day Kathy

  4. I was simply THRILLED to see your T post today. I am glad you are back and was quite sad you hadn't made it to our anniversary party. But now that you are back, I look forward to seeing your temporary location and your trips, too. Thanks for sharing your pricey green chocolate shake with us for T this soon-to-be Tuesday. Welcome back, dear friend.

  5. Glad you are back. And good for you eating a better diet and losing some weight. I am jealous about that. :) Hope you don't stay away so long and we see you next T day. Hugs-Erika

  6. So glad to see your post, welcome back! It sounds like you have had quite the adventure moving house ๐Ÿ˜€. Wow, well done for losing so much weight, it sounds like your new healthy eating is agreeing with you ๐Ÿ˜. It's so lovely to see you back in blog-land again and wishing you a very Happy T Day! J ๐Ÿ˜Š

  7. Lovely post, good to see you around again. Happy T Day, hug, Valerie

  8. Happy T Day and nice to see you back

    Like the look of your drink choices and always good to try to give up something--well for other people :)

    Love Chrissie xx

  9. Its good to see you back, it must have been quite a time moving house after so many years in your previous home.
    I was interested to read about the drinks and good for you managing to loose weight as well as moving.
    Happy T day.
    Yvonne xx

  10. Congratulations on the move and the weight loss x

    Happy T-Day!

  12. I was so pleased to see you name on the list! Welcome back! So glad you have moved and that you survived!
    Congratulations on the move, but also on losing weight. That is quite a feat. Well done you! (even though it was expensive).
    I must admit I don't like the sound of Green drinks. Just as well it is hidden in a black cup. I have been a nurse too long and am bound to have involuntary associations. lol.
    I hope you will write about the time you were absent and perhaps have a few piccies of your new abode.
    Have a good week,
    Happy T-Day,

  13. I've never heard of a green chocolate shake. I like water, too, which makes it easier to drink enough of it every day. Healthy eating can be a challenge!

    Happy T Tuesday :) Welcome back!

  14. I was delighted to see your name on the T-party list, Krisha. Welcome back! I'm impressed with your new health habits. You really went all out: drastically cutting down coffee, taking up tea and lots of water. Good for you. I've tried so many times to cut back on diet cola and drink water, but I slip back every time. I could never develop a taste for tea either, which is such a shame because I know how healthy many teas and tissanes are. I look forward to hearing more about your new digs and the GDs.

    Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

  15. So good to see you! I am trying to cut down on coffee and drink more water too! Hubby and I also go to a Gym once a week (at the moment) but not much weight loss going on - but my clothes are citing better! Hope you're settled now! Happy T Day! Chrisx
