Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Fitness Friday and D is for . . .

I was intending to post last week exercise log every Friday but that hasn't been working out too well. If I exercise, I don't log it and sometimes my exercise isn't logable so there hasn't been a Fitness Friday in a while. Still working on it.

I usually eat my Chia seeds from a spoon with water but this smoothie adds Kale (a dark leafy green I won't eat by itself) and how can you go wrong with chocolate and coconut? This recipe can be found here.

Chocolate Chia Smoothie

1 cup ice
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 scoops of protein powder
1/2 frozen organic banana
Handful of kale

Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!

My husband had Monday off work so we headed to Disneyland!

D is for Disneyland.

It's a Small World is closed for renovations otherwise there would be too many people to get such a clear picture. 

This is a sneak peek of the Submarine ride from the Monorail line. The signs say Nemo will be back but I don't remember when, maybe Fall 2014.

Don't forget where you parked! Each floor of the parking garage has an escalator and they don't really connect.

Interesting smoothie combo. I don't think I've ever had Chai seeds!

Happy A to Z-ing!
