7th day of restarting my juice fast.
My hubby is still sort of doing the fast with me. I mean he does still drink his coffee with sugar and cream, but mostly he juices. I'm afraid I made a supper last night that he loves, and so he ate, but he went right back to it today. It wasn't fair of me to make crab ragu. The stir fried veggies would have been OK, but the crab ragu is fried and has cream cheese in the middle. Not the healthiest. He has lost some weight. His clothes are getting looser.
We were at a track meet and went to Subway since it was so long. We got some sandwiches for the kids, but neither he nor I had anything, so I guess we are both staying strong. I am driving my family crazy. I can't help it if I have to check out the nutritional info on everything, can I? My son's bacon chicken melt had like 600 calories! That isn't counting the chips and drink. Almost 300 calories of that was fat calories.
I put a whole jalapeno in my veggie juice today and my hubby isn't liking it. I usually do this for my own juice, but forgot about him. Such a bad wife. I had to get some more produce and make some more juice for him.
Other than juicing, nothing much going on. Still trying to get my son to do his school... sigh. Signed my daughter up for classes next year. She still wants to be home schooled for the majority of her classes. Can't get them into driver's ed. That might be a good thing. The idea of them driving scares me, especially my son. Gas is killing us though. My daughter is involved with so much and I do a lot of driving her back and forth.
Exercise wise, I am mostly gardening. Today I moved some cinder block for a retaining wall I am putting up. I am stair stepping it up the bank and planting strawberries in the holes. I am hoping that I can get some manure next week. It has been way too wet to get it. Perhaps I can get down to the stables and get some horse manure or to talk my daughter into cleaning out the rabbit barn. There is more rain in the forecast, but that is better than the snow we got yesterday.
