Well, I buckled down and made my purchase of a juicer, and my daughter and I started the process of chopping and juicing and prepping for today. This morning I started off with a protein shake that I used the fresh juices for. I packed my lunch, which consisted of a salad with tuna fish, sunflower seeds, broccoli, tomatoes, and cucumbers on romaine lettuce. I will have another juice once I get home for dinner. I plan on juicing some tomatoes and cucumbers with spinach. So far, so good - everyone loved the sample juice I made yesterday, but of course it was a combination of fruits.
Sorry for the sideways pictures, tha's the way they uploaded from my phone.

It started with the traffic this morning that I set in for over an hour!!!!! Let me just say that there were no accidents, pullovers, etc. just protests of the new Emergency Financial Manager in the city. There was an attempt to slow him down his first day at work, but I guess they forgot to read and/or listen to the news to find out that he reported to work at 7am this morning. Anyway, I finally get to work - late, and this is my 3rd week on the job.
I normally try to see the positive is most situations, but today I couldn't help but let myself feel the emotion of frustration with traffic and how things have been going lately. I didn't feel like signing on nor doing anything but letting my face show the dissatisfaction I'm feeling. Anyway, I'll feel better soon, can't waste too much more time on this, I've got things to do.

For the longest time I have been trying to motivate myself through various forms and challenges to no avail. I was trying to figure out if a conference would do it, maybe some new gym equipment, a video, who knows. Nothing seemed to be doing the trick, until the wee hours of the morning on Sunday, January 27.
I was up, because I could no longer sleep, and was browsing through FB on my phone. I happened on a comment and hit the like button. To my surprise a friend was up as well, and asked if we could chat. She told me what she was going through, and how she was planning to have weight loss surgery, and did I have any advise for her. I told her about the journey I had gone through, of which she knew, because she had been there when I was going through myself, but this time her questions were more personal - they were for her and not as a concerned friend. Telling her about the initial reaction/responses to the surgery got me thinking about what I had gone through over 5 years ago. We talked for over 2 hours before agreeing we both had to get some sleep for church later that morning. We agreed to schedule to meet in person real soon before her srugery date.
After I got off the phone, I had felt different than I had in quite a while. I felt like I could do this! I had mustarded the energy and motivation before to propel me to where I am today, which is vastly different from where I had been. Sharing with her let me once again realize what I had sacrificed to get myself to where I am today, and it also reminded me that I had come too far to turn back around. In the process of helping her, I encouraged myself.
Today is Day 3 of my new mental transformation, and I'm going strong! I have to thank my friend for reminding me, although she didn't know it, that I've gone too far to turn back now!

I have been really bad. Since my move I have done literally not a thing regarding fitness. Yes, things are in a mess right now, and yes, I didn't have internet connection for over a week. But the truth is, I was tired from the move and the organization afterwards. I'm still getting things together, and I haven't had any time off from work to do it. Hopefully, this week will get me back in stride, and I will be able to get back in alignment.
From a friend/SparkBuddy, I have learned that I have some OCD tendencies, so at least that helps to explain why I can't do my regular activities with disorder around me (lol). Anyway, starting Monday, I'm back on track regardless of my surroundings or things happening around me or at work.
