I bought a new juicer.

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Hey, this is Albert.

I've been so unmotivated, for so long.
I was really ENJOYING over eating, whatever I wanted.
I knew it was terrible, but I love to eat.

Then James Gandolfini died.

I'm a big man, like he was. I'm probably 5 or 6 years younger. So it hit home a little.

I started raw juicing last week, just to try it. I kinda wanted to do something to kickstart me into action. Something that would make me feel different.

Juicing sure makes me feel different. I feel GOOD when I drink a big ole green juice. Like when you have a delicious salad and you know you chalked up a great meal.

Anyway, I feel good.

I was shooting for a week, which technically, I just hit tonight. I had some snacks on the rough days, but all fruit or romaine leaves or something. The third day was the toughest. It was the holiday weekend, and I wanted some hot dogs. Lots of hot dogs. I had some cantaloupe instead.

The juicer I had was a total beater that a coworker bought me at the resale shop for $10. A Kenwood. Kenwood makes juicers?! This one is so old I can't even find a picture of it online. It fits about 1 carrot at a time.

I looked at some new ones over the weekend. Dang! You could fit your ARM down these new juicers. So I got one that will arrive tomorrow. Toot!

    I'm so glad to see you on here. Good luck with your juicing! I've been doing a green smoothie every day for a week so far: spinach, protein powder, some frozen fruit, some fresh fruit, liquid (mostly just water). And I feel great just knowing I'm getting those fresh foods without eating yet another dreaded salad.

    Yay! So glad you are back at it Al. You have to take care of yourself. So many people care about you and love you and need you around for a long time.

    Good to know, I've been wanting to try it! (I LOVE food, too. Trying not to let the sun and the moon rise and set around it quite so much if you catch my meaning.)
