Hi Friends, Happy Tuesday! Today I’m resharing an old HH recipe that desperately needed updated photos! I make this Pumpkin Coffee Smoothie all the time so I thought it was finally time I gave those old 2014 photos a facelift!
In the original post I shared two treadmill workouts, I figured I’d keep those in case some of you are looking for some workout/treadmill inspiration!

Pumpkin Coffee Smoothie
It was weird reading this post before I updated it. I talked about how I couldn’t run more than 3 miles without hip pain. It was a really good reminder that the body capable of amazing healing. If you read yesterdays post you know I’m dealing with a back pain flare up. It’s been physically and emotionally challenging to say the least. It’s so easy to stay positive when things are going good, but that’s why I continually fight for a positive and optimistic attitude.

I'd love to connect with you!I am always so grateful when you let me know you tried one of my recipes or workouts and tag me in your photos or updates. Tag @hungryhobbyRD if you make this!
This smoothie was overflowing so I had to break it up into two glasses for the photo shoot, but for real, I drank both glasses! If it isn’t sweet enough for you throw in a date, some honey, coconut sugar, stevia etc. whatever you’d like to fit your desired level of sweetness. If you are looking for something to hold you over a bit longer I suggest adding a spoonful of almond butter or healthy hormone balancing seeds. (That will change the nutrition facts though)
Alrighty, I’m off to tackle the day I’ve got a bunch of blog stuff to do and a few follow up meetings with MRT/LEAP clients. I’m taking the week off exercise per doctors orders but Nala still has to get a walk in and I teach tonight so as usual, it’s a busy day! Have a good one!
