Back again, Fatter, Sicker and more Nearly Dead!

Friday, July 29, 2011

As of 7/7/11 back with SP tracking food and have actually lost a few pounds. Not doing much exercise yet but will be soon.

7/23 -- watched the movie, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and decided to dust off my juicer. It's old and was heavily used many years ago when I first tried juicing. Not sure how long I will keep it up. Certainly not the 60 days that Joe Cross accomplished but if I can do 10 days I will be happy. Then it will be back to the usual food tracking routine. I'm tracking the fruits and veggies that I'm juicing now but have to ignore the amount of fiber that my food tracker says I'm getting since the juicer takes all that out. I'm not doing it strictly according to the Joe Cross method either. I'm occasionally adding some protein powder to my juice and eat some whole fruit, yummy Oh Yeah! protein bars, a chicken breast but nothing else so far. No soda, no coffee, no energy drinks either. I probably won't get the same kind of results that Joe got but the important thing is that I'm tracking it all and keeping the calories, etc. within my ranges...and DEFINITELY getting more than enough vitamins and minerals! My knees are feeling better and I can see some walking in my not so distant future.

When I juiced years ago it made a huge difference....I felt so much better and my energy increased rapidly. Seems all these years later I'm not bouncing back like I used to and it's going to take longer to get the same results. It's going to take time. Keep kicking myself for not doing it more frequently and then stopping altogether. Kinda like when I first joined SparkPeople -- I got fantastic results just eating right and exercising but my sticktuitiveness was weak...

...now it's doing pushups!!

    I LOVE that movie and did try to do an extended juice fast-but only ended up doing it a couple of days. I blogged about it on my sparkpage-anyway what I ended up doing is losing the weight I gained over the 4th of July. It was 6 pounds.
    I couldn't keep it up BUT what I have come to the realization of is that there is good in everything I tried and that I am trying to piece it all together-juicing is still a part of that.
    I think you are on the right path!
    Just STAY on it! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I have heard many things about this movie, but I haven't seen it. I just started the juicing because they had it on the Home Shopping Network, and I just said "hmmm, that seems like a good idea." I am assuming the man that you are referring to is from the movie and lost a great deal of weight. Im gonna look on my TV tonight to see if I can find it on one of the pay per views or something. I heard netflix has it. I don't do netflix.

    Good job on what you HAVE done. Your sticktuitiveness will pick up soon!!!
