Day 18 of 30 - JUICING: trail blazer & the trail boxers

Sunday, July 06, 2014

Today is day 18 of my 30 day veggie/fruit adventure. After 20+ years, I finally convinced myself to buy a emoticon and keep it in the laundry room in an obscure space so that I won't be reminded of it every single day. This way I'm not obsessed but will not forget to weigh myself.

Yes, I fudged up last week and actually gain 2.2 pounds after losing 7 pounds my first week. Slipping up and eating through guilt and pain--so what's new? emoticon. THE biggest turmoil ending a ten year relationship within this past month. I'm OK but am encountering a lot of co-dependency issues I knew I had-----this is hard but I am finally putting myself first and praying and facing fears emoticon... No time to dwell, the past is OVER!

Well, change as come. I got up and began a REAL exercise regimen of power-walking, usually with our dog, about three days ago. The heavily shaded part of Georgia's 40-50 mile Silver Comet trail is just 4 miles away my house! Come on Cheryl!?! I also learned from SP that whenever my dog stops, I do squats . Headphones help tremendously so that I can focus and forget about saying hello to every passerby, lol.

My body has been stiff and achy but I gotta emoticon I lightened the load yesterday so I wouldn't cave in due to the soreness and meandered along with my precious son (pic'd here)

I felt like the absolute worse Mom. He didn't have on shorts----just boxers. He wanted to spend one on one time and I said OK and in our haste we ran into the car and drove off. After a short while, I asked where'd those white shorts come from?? He blushed and then panicked. I assured him with all the seriousness I could muster that no one would notice if he didn't. We talked and I instilled confidence in his young mind. i felt my confidence and strength returned and opened up some much needed dialogue between us----All in all, I persevered.

Today I hiked --it's one of my former passions. I couldn't breathe but I could climb emoticon emoticon tried some new juices emoticon and read a little about probiotics and raw kombucha emoticon...

Drank plenty of H2O..felt full ALL day emoticon the journey continues

    I find my weight too goes up and down. I am brewing Jun tea which is like kombucha. It has a milder flavor. I love using it in a smoothie with frozen fruit. emoticon

    I am still intrigued by this juicing. Likely, some of the weight is just water fluctuation, so I wouldn't fret, and it sounds like you're getting right back on the wagon. Sorry to hear about the ending of the relationship, but your attitude about it sounds very healthy. Your little man is adorable by the way, and I'm sure if you hadn't mentioned it, nobody would've known they're boxers emoticon

    I'm so proud of you Cheryl! I wish I would have jumped right back on the juicing Wagon like you but I viewed my cheat as a total failure. I'm going to start a low sugar diet today which I think is going to be best for me. It's high in veggies and low in processed carbs. I still get to eat but will have to train myself to eat the right foods. Go us!!!
