You know Day 2 is really Day 1 right?

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

All over Spark, Facebook and any social media around, stores, shopping malls, and even the good ol' calendar...Januray 1st is always emoticon .

Of course, I am withut exception. I had began my juicing excursion and getting to the "easy" part when hubby took his Christmas leave. Now, mind you I am NOT blaming him. I am responsible for my own actions. I blame me. I didn't have to eat at four different restaurants in four days because all my kids were doing their thing and we were "empty nesters" for the week. But, I did. Man, am I paying for it today. Not only did I see a significant increase in weight (right back up to where I started on this journey) but the left kidney has been flaring up the last two days in a not so gentle reminder of how I am neglecting myself.

my daughter (the youngest one who runs with me and eggs me on) went out and bought me 3 naked juices for Chirstmas. LOL What a support system :o(

I was going to start my challenge this morning. However last night we ended up in the ER again for my husband's back. I am begining to think this is his way of making a grand exit from a party. We spent nearly six hours there and arrived home by the time most people were getting up via cab. I went to bed and slept til noon when I went and picked up my girls from their party. I made my morning zinger juice (my favorite...the one with kale, apples, carrots and ginger) During the day though I came across the realization that once again there was really no food in the house! LOL so, I ended up having a chowder bowl with the family and will begin my real day one on day 2.

Oh by the way.......Seahawks in the playoffs Saturday!!

Normally, today would be a day of reflections and goals. I decided I will do that tomorrow. Between the ER and the Old Sac shooting (I'm thanking God and all the spirits around me that my brother had decided NOT to go see those fireworks) I am just exhausted.

You know the best thing about January ? Getting back to normalcy.

    Poor, poor Seahawks. After my Packers lost I was going to root for the Seahawks, and now they are out too. SO, I guess it is "GO 49ers", since I DO live in California and all.

    I really started the New Year on my nutrtion goals today too. The German side of the family makes too good a sauerkraut, speatzel, and of course I need to eat some of the pickled herring for luck as well. Best of luck coming up with your goals and reflections. I definitely thing you deserved a little break after the evening you had!

    Hope 2013 is a great one for you!

    I remember the hospital in Sacramento were always so full. I am glad that your brother wasn't in Old Sacramento that night too. Holler if you need some routing to help you along.

    I am happy you got some sleep.
    Hope your hubby is feeling better with his back.

    I loved this: "You know the best thing about January ? Getting back to normalcy." HOW TRUE AND TRUE THIS IS! I love the holidays but so happy they are OVER! emoticon

    Yes, that is the best thing about January Cori!
    I am totally with you! I actually had a good bit of energy yesterday, but I kind of let hubby hold me back. Like you - my own fault, not his. So today is my day 1 as well!! Who cares, as long as we start, right?! I mean, I can't even start the way I really want to, but I will push for those 10. YES!! You know, those 10 I'm always talking about. I can't wait to fully be back on board with you, and Kim, and all my wonderful SP friends!
    16 days...and boy am I impatient!

    Guess I'll root for the Seahawks...what do I care at this point :( Yes, I'm still bitter.

    Let's ROCK 2013 Cori!! We got this!!

    I agree with everyone else here .. Good to get back to normal (whatever that is, ha ha) .. better to take care of yourself; if you don't then you won't be able to care for those you love. Praying for dear husband's back. Sounds like you're on the right track!

    Yes, it is GOOD to get back to normalcy. I'm so tired of the holidays!! I'm ready to get back to basics with tracking my food and exercising regularly and drinking my water and getting as many fruits and veggies as I can into my diet. I'm ready for NORMAL! =)

    Let's get 2013 started.
