I have been juicing heavily for 1.5 years now, and have done several juice fasts of 2-4+ weeks. I have reached 150 lbs, but between fasts I tend to gain about 10 lbs. My goal is to keep my weight constant between fasts.
I am applying for te... Read more
Last Day of my Juice Fast
I never really believed I could do a 30-day juice fast. My mom gave me a juicer for Christmas and I bought Joe Cross' 'Reboot with Joe' and read it. I started juicing daily in January in preparation for a juice fast, but I usually caved mid-afte... Read more
Saturday 10 Jan.
Today I'm going to pretty much repeat yesterday's food and exercise. I changed up my morning juice a bit by using pears instead of apples.
We're going out to our farm in the country, so I plan to walk a good bit with the dogs.... Read more

First Week of January 2015
I had a wonderful visit back to Bethlehem, PA. I spent lots of time with my mom and sisters and saw many of my wonderful friends. It only snowed a little bit, so I couldn't make any angels, but that was the only downside.
My flights back to... Read more
Do it for myself
Part of me wanted to think I was on this weight loss journey for my husband - I get healthy --> in theory I'll live longer and have a better quality of life.
A year or so ago, I was about 25 lb. lighter than now, having lost over 50 lbs. Bu... Read more
Not great, but an improvement. Highlight was jogging in place to Elvis singing Jet to the Promised Land.... Read more
I am avoiding doing a translation / proofreading job that I need to do. This inhibits me from doing anything very productive - exercise, donkey training, changing up summer clothes for winter ones, etc.
Procrastination has always plagued m... Read more
Up up STOP!
My weight has been increasing. I got on the scale the other day. 82 kilos/ 180.4 lb. I was 175 last time I checked. This is not amusing.
Stop eating so many nuts. 1 oz from time to time OK, but not as many as 5 oz of cashews a da... Read more
My relationship with food
I eat well. I do. I eat a lot of fish, especially salmon, vegetables, fruit, homemade kefir, eggs, homemade sourdough bread, quinoa. I make soup, stews, casseroles. Salads.
I eat Lindt 90% dark chocolate, I snack on cashews.
I drink ba... Read more
Jogging in Place
I've been jogging in place lately, usually to music. It surprises me how easy it is, and how long it takes for me to get winded and sweaty.
In the past, I could barely do it. When I first discovered Leslie Sansone videos, those last two min... Read more
In a Decade...
What will my life be like in ten years? Obviously, it's impossible to know for sure, but I know some things I'd like to see.
I expect to be at my goal weight/BMI, and comfortable with my body. I plan to be a swimmer, which is out of my poss... Read more
Why Don't I Play Anymore?
When I was a child I was very active. I climbed my favorite tree all the time. I rode my bike (which was, in my mind, a horse) all over the place. I set up "jumps" in my yard and would canter around the yard and jump the course, often with a fri... Read more
I've been doing better with getting 10,000 steps than I had been. Most of the time, I reach the goal on the treadmill, but today I was just running all over the place - the store, mucking out the stalls, dancing to my favorite radio program, etc... Read more
I love chocolate. The darker, the better.
Tonight I haven't eaten any. I may tomorrow, but I may not. You see, I'm working on staying on the lower end of my calorie range and combining that with varied treadmill work.
My favorite tie-d... Read more
