Hahaha...Dramatic title for a not so dramatic blog. I am all about having fun with getting healthy and losing weight. My step mother bought me and my fiancé a juicer for Christmas and that is what started our HEALTHSCAPADES.... We have committed this year to not only revamping our eating to a healthier way but our lifestyle in general...However I am a firm believer that just because you are doing something serious and important you can't be silly and have fun...cause if you don't enjoy it then what the hell would keep you doing it! This has all opened my eyes to a lot of things...The little things you don't necessarily think about when you say "OK I'm gonna make a change and be healthy!" Things like this...Changing the way we eat, to be more healthy, for weight loss, (or as fiancé says, just to get her abs back) means a lot more especially if you have a family or you are over worked, and/or suffer from illness. Since we have made the change we notices a few things...Our acid reflux is more manageable without meds, we spend more quality time with the kids, (talking to them about foods, cooking, having them taste different juices and food, having them help more in the kitchen, plus it gives us more energy to play with them and be more patient with them). Prepping fresh veggies for cooking and eating is cathartic...When I am stressed I find the act of washing and cutting the veggies, seeing how pretty they look in all of there magnificent colors blended together like a piece of art work, it helps me deal...then we all sit down and eat it together. Anyway that was my morning thought for today...Gotta go for a bike ride with the love of my life (kids are still passed out from New Years...LOL!
