Tropical smoothie

You know those people on Facebook who just seem to “do it all?”  They are up early, like really early, starting their day with a workout, devotional, and positive thinking quote.  They are successful in their work, whatever that may be, and they seem to still have time for their family and a social life.  Pretty obnoxious, right?!  Ha, just kidding…sort of.

Well, since having a baby, Zach and I have often wondered how in the world can we do all of the things we really want/need to do?  It just doesn’t seem like there is enough time for all of it, but then we see these people who seem to have way more on their plate than we do, and they are still doing it all.  I am not saying these people have perfect lives, and I know we can’t see behind the scenes.  However, they do seem to know something or be doing something different to be able to juggle daily time with God, a workout regimen, quality time with their family, quality time with friends, and successful careers on top of all of that.

Unfortunately, the one thing we have noticed that these people have in common is that they all get up early, like in fives, like it’s still dark outside early.  Yikes.  We are not morning people…at all.  The thought of waking up at 5am, is frankly a little terrifying.  It means going to bed earlier, and the problem is, we are night people.  We like to stay up and watch TV, talk, laugh…stare at our phones.  But the people we feel like God is calling us to be are early risers.  We need that extra two hours in the day to do all of things that will honestly just make us better, more productive people.  We want to be the kind of people who get the most out of life.

We have big dreams, and we really see God doing something new, stirring out hearts, and we just want to be a part of it in whatever way He wants to use us.  But to be a part of it, we need more time, which means, we have to get up in the dark.

So today was Day 1.  And I have to say it’s 8am, and I have already made a new recipe (this super delicious Tropical Green Smoothie I’m sharing) spent time in the word, had some unrushed time with Zach, and worked out.  I’m pretty amazed at all I could do in the 2 hours before Maverick woke up for the day at 7am.  I know in a few days, the excitement will wear off and 5:30 will get really tough.  The good news is we are in it together, and I’m hoping we can push each other and stick to this.  I think it could be a game changer, pray for us!

As far as the smoothie recipe, I wanted to change up my typical morning smoothie.  So, I made this tropical themed green smoothie today, and it was really yummy!   I am such a cheerleader for smoothies in the morning.  For over 2 years, we have had a smoothie almost every morning, and it has really changed my diet and helped me maintain and even lose weight.  There is something about putting fruits and greens in my body first thing in the morning, it just sets me up for success in how I eat for the whole day.

So enjoy this tasty blend, and if you are an early riser, any tips on how to stick to this routine?!

    Excited to try this recipe out! I found outlet timers at Target for less than $10, so all my lights in the bedroom come on automatically at 5am…still a struggle but worth the extra time in the mornings!
