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!
