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 refreshing and full of flavor. This is the first time I tried juicing with mango and it was awesome. This mango didn't produce a lot of juice, but it did give the juice more flavor. I also switched out spinach for a head of Romaine lettuce, to ensure I'm keeping up with my leafy greens. It was quite good! 


1 Braeburn apple
1 Honeycrisp apple
1 mango
1/2 lemon
1/2 lime
1/2 green bell pepper
1 pear
1 head of Romaine lettuce


Let me know if you try this juice!

XOXO,

What's in my Purse? - Video

Hi Friends!

I just posted my first video on YouTube! I am so excited! I have watched YouTube videos for years and have always wanted to make my own. I finally got the courage to create one!

I really enjoy watching "What's in My Purse?" videos, so I thought this was fitting for my first.

Please visit my YouTube channel Lindsey Says Stuff, subscribe, and like the video!

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. :)

Bad Vacation?

I wouldn't say that the vacation that Ron and I just took was bad, but unlucky. We spent a wonderful time together and that's what counts. In the end, that's what we loved about it, that we were together. The "unluckiness" of the trip really started Tuesday morning with me, then I think just followed us to Toledo. While working, I proceeded to hit myself and run into many things, which produced about three more bruises and one on my head. After leaving work, I ran errands and proceeded to fall on the way into one store. Now the definition of "fall" can be interpreted so many ways. This was me missing a step and then flying forward on my knee and hands. Sun glasses, wallet, and keys go forward flying. Now usually I get up quickly in embarrassment, but this time I was in so much pain, I don't think I stood for a good 45 seconds to a minute. Then the knee pain proceeded to consume me for the next couple hours. All I could think about was the pain that …
