Day 2

Today went really well. I had four juices even though two of them were super hard to choke down. I am suposed to be feeling bad but I feel great. I am a little hungry at night, when I always binge, but other than that it's all good. The only detoxing symptom I am having is the funky breath/white tongue but even that is mild. Maybe I am not as sick as I thought I was.

I am not finding many vegetable recipes that I like. I am able to choke some down but that is about it. I think I will have a mostly fruit juice blend and at night a salad to help bulk my veggie intake. All in all it's going well and I feel better.

This October I am doing an iron man in a month challenge. Basically you just run, bike, and swim the distance of an iron man race only spread out through a month's time. It's the perfect solution to getting myself back on track with exercising. Thanks Nicole for the invite!

So I watched a documentary called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. Joe is 100lbs overweight, unhealthy, and has an autoimmune disease. He is fed up with feeling sick, tired, and taking a bunch of pills. He decides to go on a juice fast for 60 days. If you want to know more watch the documentary or go to www.fatsickandnearlydead.com to read about it.

I was so inspired by this documentary, and another one that I will blog about later, that I joined the reboot. Today is day 1 of my fast. The minimum is 5 days and the maximum is 60 days. I don't know where I will land but I am commited to detoxing my body and getting back on track.

I know that people think it's crazy but people have fasted for centuries! Jesus fasted all the time. Your body only needs water to survive. I have so much extra fat for my body to burn I am NO way in danger. Chinese medicine really focuses on healing the body through nutrition. I am focusing in that concept through the fast and afterwards.

Join the reboot! Start eating to live instead of living to eat!

Better but not great

Breakfast and dinner were great. Good for me and on target calorically. Lunch and snacks......not so much. So I am going to take my small victory because it is an improvement. Tomorrow is another day to better myself further. We walked arond the neighborhood tonight but it was a leisurely 0.5miles so that will be improved upon as well. All in all I am proud or not throwing away my day. I put my reasons on the fridge and I am also going to put them in my bedroom, purse, car, and bathroom.

Hog wash!

That is what I have to say to myself. All my excuses are just plain hog wash! I have been downright terrible with eating and exercise. Why? Because I am lazy and self-servient. I haven't kept my reasons for losing weight and getting healthy in the forefront of my mind. I have kept all my idiotic, selfish, destructive excuses there. There is absolutely NO excuse for my behavior and I am disgusted with myself. I will now have to re-lose some of the weight that I previously lost. The one good thing is that this is completely my decision. I haven't watched TBL, gotten jealous over someone else, been "talked to", etc. That makes me realise that this is something that I want. Not just a fad. No matter how many times I fall I will get back up. I'm tired of writing these posts. I can't say no more because I know life will get in the way at times but I will do my best to make them few and far between.
