When something goes wrong in in your live, yell PLOT TWIST & MOVE ON. D2

Friday, December 20, 2013

Sometimes you mess up. That's the game of LIFE.
A few nights ago I woke up in the middle of the NIGHT. emoticon

It was as if a super strong magnet controlled my movements. IT DRAGGED ME TOWARDS THE refrigerator. It made me open the door. In the darkest moments of the night I opened the squealing, tattling drawer that held the sliced cheese. During that dark ZOMBIE moment I chowed down a slice of cheese, illuminated by the refrigerator door. I didn't even share with the cat. emoticon She was asleep. emoticon It was almost like sleep walking. I felt so bad when I realized what I did. emoticon

I had been on a streak of dropping pounds like flies, I was doing so well on my improved eating plan. I SCREWED UP, but not too badly. It would of been OK, but slipping on my diet affects my mobility and how well I feel, my health. That stupid slip up set me back a few days on my exercise due to the health decline. One day turned in to a couple of days of slipping up. I gained a couple of pounds back. It wasn't worth screwing up. It wasn't worth feeling physically ill to the point I needed help moving around. I didn't know I was lactose intolerant and the effects it has on my immune system. It's much worse than gas.

Yesterday I dusted myself off and climbed back on the horse. I stayed ON TRACK ! emoticon My reward is 2.5 pounds released. Yes. One day back on and I am where I was when I messed up !!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
I am so THRILLED !!! To top things off my mobility is greatly improved once again.

Today I have had a coconut. emoticon The real coconut water from a young coconut tastes yummy. Processed tastes yucky. I don't know what they do to destroy the flavor. Always eat fresh, raw, unprocessed coconuts for a treat.

My juice is: Joe Cross's recipe for Good Morning Juice modified a smidgin.

2 Sweet potatoes. I used Yams.
6 Carrots.
4 Oranges. I also added 4 tangerines.
1 tsp. vanilla.
My variation is, adding the tangerine, mung bean sprouts (you can't taste them), 3 inches of fresh turmeric, one stalk of lemon grass. It worked perfectly not changing the flavor of the juice. It made 32 ounces or a quart. This is one of my favorite juices. It does not taste like the average vegetable juice. It's more of a treat, kind of like an Orange Julius. The orange and vanilla overrides the other flavors, the yam adds a creaminess that other juices don't have. It's super satisfying and filling. Its a treat to make when I have the Ingredients.

Later I might make the emoticon Mean Green juice.

1 Cucumber
4 Celery Stalks
2 Apples. Use Granny Smith for lower sugar amounts.
6-8 Kale leaves.
1/2 Lemon. I usually use more lemons. Lemons compliment the Granny Smith Apples. If you get the amount correct it's kind of like a green lemonade.
1 Tbsp. Ginger. Yum. emoticon

For my meals I have a Creamed Sweet Potato soup with corn. Yum. Snack is Pumpkin Chia Seed protein pudding. emoticon Lemon grass tea or Chaga Tea if I get cold. emoticon

Its so exciting to have a FRESH START every day.

My tip for the day is:

    That cat with it's mouth stuffed SO full, and saying "I regret NOTHING", is so funny!

I just read a quote I like. I says, "If life stacks the deck against you, reshuffle the deck."
Good one!

    Great blog! Your drinks look really healthy. I'd like to try. Wonder if you cook the sweet potato or not before pureeing it???

Sorry you've been struggling, but obviously you are now doing great! And that is what it takes. You live and learn when you are changing your eating and listening to your body. You are doing great!! -Marsha
