Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead....an Amazing Story!
Bet that scared you..Huh? Tee-hee! Don't worry, I don't feel THAT desperate...but maybe getting closer... Desperate enough to drink THIS.... Actually, it tastes better than it looks.
No, I'm not back from bloggy vacation until next week. But I had to post a little update on my weight loss blog, Gettin' Thin Together, for my friends, so I thought I'd share it here with you too. :o) At this very moment I am surrounded by tax papers. Sigh.. Not the most fun..but it sure will be great when I'm done!
As far as an update goes, I didn't do very well on my diet over the last week or so.( It sure doesn't pay to not pay attention!) I'm vacillating back and forth in a three pound range. I knew, of course, that I needed to start writing in my food journal again, or I'd be in trouble. Then along came this Netflix movie--perfect timing! I think, though I'm not certain, that someone shared the link to this on Facebook and that's how I stumbled across it.
The title was intriguing to say the least! How I could relate to the people in this FASCINATING movie! If you are needing inspiration..then you must watch it. The trailer above is the extended version but you can watch it on instant play on Netflix, which is what I did. My whole family was impressed with the stories of these two men. You can join the club so to speak here at their website, Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.
So, though I'm not a big fan of excess appliances, my daughter's juicer has now been promoted to a spot on the kitchen counter. I'm going to try just a ten day juice fast...with a few nuts thrown in. Today, Day 1, has been tough because I'm a caffeine addict if ever there was one. Between trips to the bathroom (a natural result of the first few days of detoxing), and headaches from lack of caffeine...this is pretty tough.
But the taste of my juices..even the green recipe, are really pretty good! Of course, whose going to complain about fruit juice (breakfast), but for lunch I used up some lettuce, several carrots, and zuchinni. I thew in a small piece of watermelon for sweetness. I must say that carrot juice really tastes great! I was surprised. It has a nice nutty flavor.
I thought this little 'fast' might give me a the jump start I need to get back on the healthy eating track. And I really do need to cut out the caffeine. I don't sleep all that well. I want to feel great..and this looks like a good solution! Be sure to heed their advice about a doctor's evaluation if you want to do the fast more seriously.
Well..I'm back to my bloggy 'break' if you can call it that...and the tax papers. One is almost ready to send and then I can dig into the complicated estate work. I'll see you all next Tuesday with an exciting little tea party. Thanks to the 'heads up' from Amy of A Tea Girl in a Coffee World, I'll be sipping 'Royal Wedding Tea' from Harney and Sons. Won't that be fun?
