Day 6 and I have some converts!

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Well I've been juicing now for 6 days, and I must say I am enjoying it. On day 3 I had a bad headache because I was missing the pop and vending machine, but it was over by midday. I still have not gone a complete day without a meal, and today I begin the 5 juices and 1 evening meal cleanse for 3 days (Joe Cross).

I've been reading the Juicing Bible and found some nice recipes for diabetes that I referred to my sisters. They are on day 2 of drinking the Diabetes Breakfast. I made them up a couple of batches yesterday and placed them in mason jars. I juiced so much product yesterday that the juicer got heated, and we had to give it a break. We actually filled the recepticle 4 times! Anyway, it's nice to know that more of my family is trying to gain a healthier outlook on food and lifestyle. I have some pics of my daughter and I juicing. It's funny because we were amazed at the different coloring some produce put out, so we not only took pictures of us in the process, but just the colors themselves.


This morning started out with a breakfast of 1/2 a banana, 2 strawberries, 8 oz of unsweetened Almond Milk, and protein powder. It was okay, but next time I need to include ice, because luke warm doesn't quite make the grade. I do know one thing, since I have incorporated the juicing, I have had so much more energy. I have gotten up early the last 3 days without an alarm, and I've required less sleep. My daughter says it could be a number of things, since I've also changed my vitamin regimen, and I've incorporated more physical activity at work (stairs versus elevator), and started using all natural health care products. We'll see.

Right now I'm getting ready to get my workout on. I'm about to wake up my daughter so she can show me how to connect my computer to the television so I can do a Spark workout. It's good to have kids now, so you don't have to think about ALL the tech stuff ALL the time!

Day 1 of The Juicing Experiment

Monday, May 06, 2013

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's Been A While

Friday, May 03, 2013

It has been a while since I've posted my own blog, although I daily read and comment on others. I actually don't have many exciting things happening that I feel others might like to know about, so I kinda stay in the background. I plan on starting juicing on Monday, and I want to track my progress in pictures, measurements, and overall feelings about the changes that I hope/anticipate feeling. I hope that the challenges and triumphs I experience will aide someone else in their own.

Right now my IBS is bothering me so much that I am determined to find a healthy cure for the recent increase in episodes I have experienced. My daughter just purchased The Juice Bible for me, and this weekend I plan on purchasing the needed ingredients and a nice new juicer. I'll post the pics of my selections once they're complete this weekend. I also joined a couple of challenges as motivation to increase my exercise as well. I tend to do better in a competitive state, when it comes to losing weight and motivation. The key is to sustain this when I'm not competing.

Just so not feeling it today!

Monday, March 25, 2013

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.

  Aw Dotty, what a morning. I know you'll snap out of it. It's frustrating when the protesters don't care about every body else. And do they think he'll go away because they caused traffic jams?

    I can so empathize with you today .... let's give ourselves a shot in the arm, a kick in the hiney, or whatever it takes to get out of this slump!
