My Milkshake Brings All The Boys to the Yard and there like 'read this post'

Hahaha cheesy title i know but it is fitting to the post on blenders: smoothies, milkshakes, crushes...

Well my eldest sister is always obsessing over exercise, healthy eating, being healthy we bought a random blender...Argos Cookworks Blender XB9155 which is really good and u can chose between low and high...

For the past 2 days nothing in my kitchen has seemed appetizing for breaky so i made smoothies, the first i had was Jumbo oats (should be porridge), banana, milk and ice which was kinda powdery but nice u should add honey to it but the deal is that they are low cal and my this morning one was Ice, berry flavoured yougurt, blueberries, strawberries. They were both quite yummy. i say keep it on low whilst ur tidying things up whilst
blending or anythign and when ur watching it transfer to high.(btw its on a dial type thing)

I LOVE crushes like yesturday i was in westfield and bought ANOTHER Boost drink, last time i had Tropical Storm Low Fat Smoothie this time i tried Watermelon Crush.

Chocolate Banana Smoothie:

Ive had a Wii Fit for a while now and both me and my 2 sisters wanted Wii Fit + and for xmas my mum got it for all of us, we used it today, and i made my own routine which i really enjoy and from it i found out i burnt an ice lolly off in calories (good for summer then) and it persists of 7 moves, one being just Deep Breathing which my mean sister sabotaged for me by PUSHING ME and the others being very basic such as Jack Knife, Leg Extensions, Torso twists...very basic and quite fun....also the game Perfect 10 is and my sibs were talking and we might all save up and buy together the XBox and that new game for it, the fitness one, it looks good.....

Well thats it xxxx stay healthy and these r really good low cal snacks and meals xxx hth
