    Hap - Sorry it's taken me a while to get back on this. Here are some basics on the drinks I had mentioned earlier.

    You can use any type of green tea you like - loose and Japanese is the best (more fresh and smells like grass rather than black tea) but a standard grocery store green tea in tea bag form will work just as well and be just as tasty. The key with green tea is that you steep it for a shorter period of time. Don't steep for too long or it will be bitter. So, boil water. Take the water off the stove, use 1 tea bag for every 4 cups of water (approximately). Steep for 1-2 minutes. It will differ by the type of tea (most packages will tell you how long is ideal). Shoot for a nice lighter green color versus a dark, hazy color. This is my preference - make as per your taste.


    Chill the tea. Mix the juices in the day you want to drink it. I make the mixes in smaller bottles and carry them to work.

    Spritzer options -- add sparkling water to taste to both of these:

    3/5 green tea 2/5 orange juice
    3/5 green tea 1/5 orange juice 1/5 pomegranate juice

    Alternatively, you can just leave out the tea and just do the following:
    1/2 orange juice 1/4 pomegranate juice and 1/4 sparkling water

    With either of the above, the orange juice is essential because it cuts the pomegranate juice which has a very strong flavor. Use whichever brand you like to drink with no pulp. OJ is very high in sugar even if it is natural sugar so use smaller amounts of it. I use it as a natural sweetener but don't use it to make the majority of the drink.

    I'm going to be a day late with the list this week. It's been a long day, and I want to get up early tomorrow to get my exercise out of the way.

    Wow, what a slacker. And all the money we are paying you, too.

    I worked out today. At night because I don't have energy during the day for anything when I work out in the morning.

    Yay! I only continued working out because of this thread.

    My inner ISTJ is really upset right now. Thankfully, my outer INFP seems pretty okay with it, and just wants me to get ready for bed already.

    Thank you for taking time out of your endorphine crazed mood to keep us updated!

    You need to get yourself to bed and out of the way of my crazed endorphins.

    Thanks! My dad drinks a lot of seltzer so I think I'll have to try something with seltzer in it.

    I'll have to try it out ^^

    Totally in a sweet routine now with classes and eating, and I'll be checking out a high-intensity boxing class on Thursday at the same place that I'm doing Pilates atm, if that all works out, which I think it will, then I'll finally have everything I wanted covered and be able to stop looking around for different ways to meet my fitness wants.
