I’m going to share a yummi banana nut smoothie recipe with you in just a minute, but first I want to share some really great news with you!

Many of you know that I’ve spent the past year working on achieving my health goals. I fell a little short of meeting my goal to lose 50 pounds by my 50th birthday, but I’m proud of myself for managing to lose the 30 that I did. These last 20 pounds are giving me a run for my money, though, so I’m pulling some extra punches to help me get there by the end of this year. Tracking daily activities is one way to do that, and it’s been made so much easier thanks to the Walgreens Balance Rewards program.
