My Soldier. My Brother.

What can I say? My Brother has been a Soldier in the U.S. Army for a little more than 72 hours and there are so many things I am feeling, Proud, Excited, Sad, Love. Sad only because the fact that my baby brother has now become a man. All these feelings and more keep coming up. They come up because of the love I have for him. The great boy that I know now from the cute little boy with freckles from the top of his red curly hair to the bottom of his toes has in just a day become a man. I have the up-most respect for the decision that he has made to enter the Army. What an honor and privilege. My brother was very excited about going, ecstatic in-fact. I pray for him everyday and hope that God will give him the guidance and support he needs. I love my brother so much and to actually say that he is serving his country is so majestic to me, so noble. I am very proud of my brother. I only wish my brother the nest and hope he always remembers that God loves him and his family loves him. Forever.

Words of Wisdom: Always put God first and everything else will fall into place.

Juice of the Day - Day 5

Today is Day 5.

Yesterday was difficult for me. I'd been invited to go to a nice restaurant for a birthday party with some co-workers, but since I'm juicing, I wouldn't be able to eat anything. This presented a real challenge.

All day I debated canceling, both because of the temptation to compromise and give in, and the misery of watching other people get to eat. Around the time I was supposed to be getting ready, I came across Dr. Oz's "Are You A Food Addict?" episode online. He asked five questions to help determine if you're addicted to food, one of which was "is food controlling your social life?"

This really took me by surprise. At that moment, I decided I was not going to let this overpower me. I ended up going and had a blast! I'm so glad that I chose to take control over my addiction.

Fortunately, today was a much better day for me. I felt good and full of energy. 

I tried this juice recipe today and it tasted great! It's light and re…

January 6th - 10th

Those are the dates, the dates that the treadmill will be delivered. It is the 6th already. Where is my treadmill?
I know I shouldn’t be antsy, but I am. My husband’s daughter signed up for the ½ marathon and it got me thinking about doing that. Now, the ½ marathon is definitely out of me reach, but I am hoping by September that my husband and I will be able to participate in one of the Fort4Fitness races.
I can’t believe that I am writing this. I have been over-weight for more 10 years and I would have never imagined that I would even consider doing this for myself. This is the year. This is the year that I become myself again. I used to be so athletic and now, I couldn’t run for 5 minutes without stopping.
I am so looking forward to this treadmill and this training schedule. This is very exciting for me.
If only my treadmill would get here. :)
