Time for another reboot….

Just a short note…

Let’s see…I would guess there is two months between wrapping up my juice fast/reboot.  In those two months I have let 8 pounds develop from old eating habits that I either carried right along with me or new ones that I started.  I never did get to my 145 lbs. and stabilize for even a short time.  Still at 155.4 lbs, I am not in bad shape.  For some strange reason, I am still surprised at how I feel physically and emotionally when I really step into the old diet..(just attended my niece’s wedding.  What a wonderful party and the pulled pork was not even that good).  Sluggish, bloated, hung over are words that come to mind.  It is time…the juicer has sat idle for too long.

Time to pull out the pad and pencil, old recipes and plan out a weeks menu of “juice plus 1 meal”.  I am still super busy at work and will need the energy from slow burning carbs to  maintain my energy through the day.  I am easily active 5 hours of the day doing things; carrying boxes, tools, cranking wrenches, fixing machines and other such sundry activities.

Start date….Saturday, August 18th with a week of mainly fruits and veggies (no dairy or gluten products).  That means, no pop corn at night!

Off I go to work…Thanks for listening….

 

Never to Old to Start Juicing

The verdict is in….Mom smiled from ear to ear with her first taste of her juice….apple, kiwi, celery, green pepper, cucumber.  She wanted to drink the whole pint right away.  I cautioned her with my own smile.  One would think at 60 years old (coming up), I wouldn’t feel so much of that little boy glee when I make my Mom happy….but I do.  Somethings just don’t change.  Unfortunately, the idea of a 20 juice supply went to the wayside with her drinking a pint a day.  I guess I will just have to get my juicer over there for her sooner than I thought.

Lots of exciting things going on for me to be grateful for.  The purchase agreement is signed to buy to building housing one of my laundromats….can’t wait to put in a long needed new floor, entrance way and start on the improvements with the machines….and save money.  Property payments are always lower than the rent…yeah!!!!

I have two wonderful staff that are managing many of the nuts and bolts kind of stuff….Thank your, Thank you and Thank you…

AND….the weather is gorgeous….sunny and cool..

Best wishes to everyone today.

Day 15- Still in the RED ZONE…RED ZONE

Same juices as yesterday with a total of 90 ounces.  I ate two salads yesterday, one with homemade chili and tangy mex dressing.  Delish!!  Weighed in ay 150…almost out….

Tuesday is my third horse blanket trip.  It is such a long day but fun.  I will be traveling from Rochester to Ithaca.  The countryside is decorated with rolling hills of bright green.  I love the drive.  I delivered two horse blankets to a customer last summer by motorcycle just for the “ride of it”.  Great day but went out and bought a new seat real quick…..not enough padding for a long ride of 350 miles.

I know I will get out of the RED ZONE after today.  It is so easy when eating right…who would have thought!

Off to meditate and then to work.

Best to you all…and for the juicers out there….Juice on Dude….
