Haven't been on in a long time, and totally fell off the wagon over the holidays. Had a lot of fun, but ate a lot of food I didn't need or really want. The result, one pound away from 300. Went back to the pool last night. Took it easy, really happy that my hamstring injury has healed and I can swim using my legs again! Gained back the 7 pounds that I lost in Florida now that I am back in the real world. Kids home, adult kids home, husband home, 50th birthday for my hubby celebrated...money and car drama...Calgon, take me away!
I have a stove again and am cooking a roast and roast vegetables...then it hit me, why am I continuing to do what doesn't work? A big huge meal, right before bedtime? I already have plans to hit the pool at 9:00, but working out after a meat feast is not pleasant.
So....I told the hubby to buy the juicer on the way home from the Health Club. We have wanted to juice for a long time, but didn't plunk down the cash for the juicer. I am not getting the ideal one, but a good one per Consumer's Reports, and a lot cheaper.
I am going to juice for 5 days and see how I feel. It can work this week as I am off this weekend. My kids are clamoring for "real food", i.e. junk food and fast food. I really feel like I am pushing the rock up the hill dealing with teens and pre-teens with huge appetites for junk food.
I will let you know how it goes!
Happy New Year!
