So I watched this documentary on a whim last night called, “Fat, Sick And Nearly Dead” and it really opened my eyes to juicing, We have had a Jack LaLane juicer forever and the only use it ever got was for fresh apple juice once a year when we buy a box from our local orchard, Well, no longer! I broke it out tonight and made myself an apple, carrot, pear, and kale juice for dinner and it was pretty decent, The movie talked about resetting your body by drinking nothing but juice for an extended period of time (from 7 to 60 days depending on your goal) and the people that did it not only lost a TON of weight very healthfully, but also got off of all of their medications! It seems really hard, but I am going to try substituting some of my meals with fresh juice and see how I feel after a week or so, If it is good, I will do the “fast” (which seems like the wrong word since you getting plenty of calories and and water and are not starving) for awhile, WISH ME LUCK:)
I have noticed recently that when I think about what I am eating, I delude myself into thinking that “tomorrow I will start eating healthier”, or “this is the last ___________”, but the truth is that it isn’t, I often think I will start in the near future before this holiday or that, before this big event in my life or this family thing, but I don’t, The worst is when it is going to be a Monday or the beginning of a new month (like tomorrow or in a few hours, however you want to look at it) I always commit to myself that “tomorrow is the big day to change my life”, Well this has to stop, starting RIGHT NOW every bite I eat, or thing I drink is going to be the first day, the first bite, I have to change my mantra, Instead of “I will start tomorrow” it is now “How does this bite or drink help me get where I want to go”
Also, why is it so UNBELIEVABLY EASY for men to lose weight when as a woman it takes FOREVER! I saw a friend that I haven’t seen in a few months (ie around July) and he has lost 60 POUNDS! I want to lose that kind of weight in that kind of time! NO FAIR! My body should KNOW that I am not having anymore little ones ever again and that it is more than welcome to give up the fat it has been storing “just in case”, My tubes are TIED, time to give up the ghost!
My kids looked so amazingly cute tonight for Halloween, I could not have been a prouder mom:)
To end all these crazy thoughts I just have to ask God a personal favor, PLEASE DON’T LET THE SNOW FALL HERE THIS WEEK, For those of you who don’t know me, I HATE LIVING IN SNOW, Visiting it is fun for a few minutes, but after that I am OVER it, For us (where I live) the constant power outages, stupid people who drive either crazy fast and dumb, or the super slow and dangerous, the cold seeping thru the windows and little ones crying, because even though I send them out with gloves, they take them off and their hands freeze from playing in the snow, UGH, Gives me a headache just thinking about it, Please, Please, Please,,,
