As I packed my things up to head out for the day, I stared at my crunchy green salad. I took it out of the fridge and was about to pack it in my lunch bag. Then I looked at it again, thought about Joe Cross and Phil (watch Fat Sick and Nearly dead) and said to myself, “if THEY can do this, so can I”. I put my salad back in the fridge. I sucked it up and told myself out loud. I CAN DO THIS. *affirmation*
I get to the office and take a swig of my mean green and cringed. OMG not enough orange and apple or pear! That’s when I remembered, I gave my apples and pears to Emily because she was crying. A mothers sacrifice. LOL I put some ice cubes in my mean green with the hopes of keeping it cold for the rest of the day in my Thirty One thermal bag and to help dilute the mixture a bit cause the mean in the green IS strong.
Walking through down town this morning a little tough. I could smell the subway bread baking and the food scents coming out of Jamba juice and starbucks as I walked by. Inhale and exhale. It’s calorie free to smell it. I’m good.
People, it’s only been an hour since I started my day. I’m gonna need all the encouragement I can get. My first baby step is to try and juice for at least four days. I know I said 10, but not with the birthday coming on Sunday. I am going to eat! Then, I’ll get right back on the juicing wagon. I’m not making a documentary. I’m not trying to prove a point. I’m just trying to make realistic lifestyle changes that will help me lead a healthier and longer life. So bear with me while I try to figure all of this out.
Thanks for reading and subscribing and keeping up with me through this adventure. This surely won’t be an easy one.
Stay tuned. Cause blogging helps me keep my thoughts in order and also keep me sane. Expect a lot of blogging in the upcoming weeks.
