Keep your energy up for all that NaNoWriMo writing – have a smoothie

We are now on day 9 of NaNoWriMo, in case you’re a little tired, here’s a great fall smoothie to keep you energized, your fingers flying across they keyboard.

Also, take a few minutes at lunch today to get some fresh air – even if you go out the front door and right back in, the sun (if it’s shining where you are today) and fresh air will help you get your second wind for this afternoon and tonight.

Pumpkin ‘licious Smoothie
pinch of cinnamon
1/4 c. pumpkin pie filling (freeze it for a thicker smoothie)
1/2 c. almond or soy vanilla milk
2 tbsp vanilla yogurt blend well.

if you want to be decadent, crush up a few graham crackers and sprinkle on top.

P.S. feeling adventurous? add a couple of spinach leaves, up to a handful (you won’t even taste the spinach)

Other than pushing forward, maybe getting ahead on your writing this weekend, what fun things do you have planned? You’re almost at the halfway point so schedule something for yourself – a movie, a day of hooky from work, a massage – you decide and reward yourself.

Happy Thursday!
