Clayton and I spent the week of Thanksgiving in Texas, and we had a great time! I tried to plan in advance how to accommodate this habit while away from home for 3 days, but the best laid plans of mice and men…
Texas Smoothie Plan
Tuesday – green smoothie from Jamba Juice.
Wednesday – lunch and green smoothie at Vegeria.
Thursday – buy ingredients to make a smoothie at family’s house.
Texas Smoothie Reality
Tuesday – Success!
Wednesday – Naked Juice green smoothie.
Thursday – forced down a Boathouse green smoothie after our second Thanksgiving dinner.
Vacations with family always seem to get away from me. There are so many people to see, and I always underestimate the time it will take to do anything. Also people don’t just go along with my plans like I anticipate they will. At 5 pm on Wednesday, when I realized that we would not be able to accomplish my smoothie plans, I took advantage of a Walgreen’s pit stop to stock up on backup smoothie options.
Naked juice and Boathouse were not ideal solutions, but it was unrealistic of me to expect to be able to take over my aunt’s kitchen on Thanksgiving to make a green smoothie. A good lesson that I have learned in building these habits is to be flexible. I need to make this habit work in my normal life, and that means adjusting to hectic schedules while still making this habit a priority.
I’m glad to be back on track, and drinking our home-made smoothies. Do you have any holiday smoothie recipes? Please share them in the comments!
