My 60-day Juice Fast

In February of 2014, I had a major headache. Concerned, my husband inquired about my blood pressure, which turned out to be 179/113 (scary high). No wonder I had a headache!

Though my doctor ended up putting me on a blood pressure medicine, everything in my entire being is fighting the fact that I am now on medication for something that I can control. How messed up is that?

As a result, my husband and I decided to make a change. We'd tried juicing recently, and lost about 25 pounds each. But through lack of resolve and self-control, we failed.

We have decided to try juicing again. This time around, I definitely have some ammunition to succeed: Get off these blood pressure meds!

 I do not want to be fat anymore! There are a lot of things I want, and being this way is holding me back from so much! I do NOT want to be FAT... ANYMORE!!!!!

So here I am, making a commitment: 60 days of doing what is right. Beginning to undo the wrong I have done to myself over the past 12 years. I invite you to take my journey with me.

To keep myself accountable, I'll be posting every day. I will post some of the juices I drink, along with the recipes so you can enjoy them, too. I'll also write about what I'm feeling and going through.

I hope this helps you as much as it helps me!

XOXO,
- Lindsey

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. :)
