Too Many Steps
I haven’t had a spinach smoothie since December 14. It requires too many steps.
I love spinach smoothies. They were my go-to breakfast on my way to work for years. Frozen spinach, chia seeds, peanut butter, almond milk, coconut oil, maca powder, frozen banana, frozen blueberries, protein powder, and sometimes if I was living large, a heaping tablespoon of cacao. I don’t have the energy to do that right now.
Today I was reading a book called The Worst Loss, and it said, “The simplest tasks leave you fatigued. Chronic fatigue and exhaustion become constants…You hear yourself sighing. Breathing hurts.” The author read my mind.
So I’m trying to be gracious to myself and forego things that require too many steps. For now.
Maybe you are feeling the same. It’s OK to skip some steps. For now.
