As I mentioned earlier in the week, I was going to make this new adventure an open diary of sorts so not only to help me have some accountability with myself, but to also maybe help someone else who is on the fence about taking this step. And why am I doing this you ask?
I JUST WANT TO FEEL GOOD AGAIN!!!! I am an over-weight middle aged woman with a heart condition and an immune system that is less than adequate. I am tired all of the time, and have suffered quite a bit of hair loss, dry skin and shattered finger nails. The only thing I do better than I have ever done in my life is sleep. If I could make a living by sleeping I would be a millionaire. This is not the way I want to live the final years of my life.
I have done a lot of reading about juicing as well as watching television programs discussing juicing and its benefits. Recently a very good friend of mine showed my a video on YouTube called FAT, SICK AND NEARLY DEAD. It was excellent!! I highly recommend it even if you are the healthiest person around. It was the little push I need to give juicing a try.
There are many protocols and regimens out there, depending on who you listen to. I am putting my ideas with one of the experts and I vow to take it one day at a time. I purchased a juicer and they come in all price ranges. I got one that was on the least pricey end, I can send it back in thirty days if I don’t like it, and the motor was guaranteed for 5 years.
Here is my plan of attack: I am going to try to do a ten day detox first which consists of juicing three times a day……no food. After that it will be one green juice a day and two well planned meals – not fast food- or eating out three and four times a week. I will do that for six weeks and then a ten day detox regimen again.
So today I started. I have my first one was made with sweet potatoes, peaches and apples, I made enough to breakfast tomorrow and Tuesday. It will keep for 48 hours if stored in canning jars and in the refrigerator. The other two will be green juices. After a day or two I am going to switch it up and make the first and last meal green and do the other one for lunch.
Like I said before……one day at a time, one juice at a time.
Until next time…..
