After watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, (free on Join The Reboot) and seeing the amazing transformations of quite a few juicing followers, I decided it was time I needed to honestly think about how I got to where I currently am – which is, Fat (185 lbs at 5’6″), Sick (high blood pressure, high triglycerides, a hiatal hernia), and Nearly Dead (tachycardia). I’m on blood thinner and Nexium, and I hate taking medicine. I’m in a wheelchair because I have no cartilage in my hip joints, so I take pain pills. I suffer from depression, so I’m on Wellbutrin. Lovely, eh? NOT! I’m only 48! If I continue on this path of eating what I want, when I want, and however much I want, I won’t be around to watch my grandchildren grow up.
So, today is my first day of juicing. I skipped breakfast because I didn’t sleep well last night, and had to take a quick run into town this morning. Lunch was grilled tilapia, mashed cauliflower, and steamed broccoli, and I enjoyed my last cup of coffee (cream and sugar included).
Dinner was a Mean Green Juice from http://jointhereboot.com.
The second juice was carrots, apples, cucumbers, 1/2 a lemon, and blackberries. Ugly color, but it doesn’t taste bad. I made enough for tomorrow while I was prepping the vegetables. One thing though – Don’t put blackberries though your juicer! I added them first, and had to stop, clean the juicer, and start over.
I have a slight headache, and hope it disappears before I have to take any aspirin for it.
I’ll be back tomorrow to post (with pics) my daily juice.
