Stepping it UP

Saturday, January 04, 2014




Waving Hello from Sunny Northern California where it's in the mid 60s. emoticon It's perfect weather for a nice winter walk under sunny skies. I hope it warms up soon for those of you hit by the winter storms. Send some rain our way please, were in a drought.


One of my goals in 2014 was to STEP things up a bit. As I feel healthier with the lifestyle changes, it makes me want to DO MORE. So I tweaked my goals a bit, increasing my workouts. This year I plan on doing More.







Yesterday I made a Gallbladder Detox juice.
I made a quart of Apple/Pear Juice and divided it up into several servings. Apple is very soothing to the gallbladder, softening stones I read online. Then I added per glass 3 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar. Yum. It was really tasty, kind of like kombucha tea. They say if you drink this combo it helps to promote a cleansing of the gallbladder.








Later I made up some Beet, ginger, garlic, cucumber, celery, cilantro, pineapple, mango, orange juice. YUM.









This morning I was rewarded with a small decrease on the scale. emoticon

    Thanks for the information about pears especially. My mom suffers from Lupus and only has one working kidney. She loves pears so I am going to get her some and share this information with her.

    emoticon Anytime the scale goes down is a major victory! Glad you are so driven to better health and finding the right ingredients. I am not as patient about putting the time and effort into making a drink. I get a lot of greens but use my mouth to do the work!

Keep up the great progress!!! emoticon

    You've been on top of things. Great! I need to get with it. I let myself get stressed and sick and have a few days to sit back and think about what I want to do with life. It's good that you know how great vinegar an d ginger are. I tell some people and they look at me like I'm crazy. Have a great new year.

    Do Not rub in that weather - hey shoveling is an awesome calorie burn ! Yep - nothing better than to clean the bile from the entire digestive tract to prevent stones and keeps your enzymes in check ! emoticon Celery Tea also for stones - good blog !
