I make a "green" smoothie. Here's my recipe for it:

Base:

2oz frozen spinach

2oz frozen blueberries

30g (or about 1 scoop) Isopure banana cream Protein Powder (or any flavor)

1 eyedropper vitacost liquid vanilla stevia

16oz Water (or coconut milk or Fairlife fat free milk)

4-6 ice cubes

Nutrition with water as the base: 140 cals; 25g protein; 6g carbs; 2g fiber; 4g net carbs; 4g sugar naturally occurring

Variations:

6g whole psyllium husks (makes it thicker and lasts with me longer before hunger) - 21 cals; 5g carbs; 4g fiber; 1g nt. carb

6g vitacost Peanut Butter slim powder - 22 cals; 3g protein; 1g fat; 2g carbs; 1g fiber; 1g net carb

Nutrition when I'm doing a peanut butter banana blueberry with psyllium and water as the base: 183 cals; 28g protein; 1g fat; 13g carbs; 7g fiber; 6g net carbs; 4g sugar.

Nutrition when I'm doing a peanut butter banana blueberry with psyllium and 8oz Fairlife Fat Free Milk and 4-8oz water as the base: 263cals; 41g protein; 1g fat; 19g carbs; 7g fiber; 12g net carbs; 10g sugars (this would last me for 2 meals at least).

I know for DS you can have extra fats, so maybe add 1 tbsp or 2 of whole peanut or almond butter rather than the peanut butter slim powder. You can also add coconut oil if you feel like you have to have it or I sometimes add 1/4 of a ripe avocado.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
