Our gym membership has been "on hold" for almost two years. I am all for fitness and taking care of oneself, however, I am not all about paying almost $200 a month for it.
I went in a few months ago to break up with the gym. If you've ever tried to do this, it's nearly impossible. Just today, they had sales employees in from all over the country to attend training of which I am sure is in the art of not letting people quit. All it took was for one woman to wave a few free gym bucks in my face to use at the spa and BOOM, I'm still here. On hold, but still here.
Really though, my hold dollars are put into an account so I can use them towards my hair appointments, which, they tell me, means I get to use the daycare and gym, ahem...pool, for the day. Sold. So today, not only did I get a much needed haircut, but we enjoyed an afternoon at the pool. And all because I can't say no.
But since the gym pool thinks it's Vegas and charges an arm and a leg for smoothies - we decided to make them at home instead. This one's a keeper. One declared Marco Island Smoothie because it makes us think of our Florida vacations. And because it was slurped down faster than pussycat.

Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into glasses and top with whipped cream.
Is it Friday? Are you 21? Go ahead and add two shots of good rum before you blend. You deserve it.
