Day 1 

2 tomatoes, 2 celery stalks, 1 large carrot and a peeled lime. That's my breakfast all grinded together in a juicer that I begged my little family to get me for an early birthday present. Sounds kinda like a V8. I haven't ever tasted a V8, but I imagine it might taste like this. 

Sounds a little nutty, right? Sure it does. Well, it did until I watched a documentary called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead (found on Amazon). It touched me once, then I made the family watch it. Then alone, I watched it one more time.

The object is to change your diet to include nothing but fruits and veggies in a juice. On the documentary, two obese men stuck with it for 60 days. I'm hoping to stick with this for 10. Just 10 days. The bigger size jeans I bought in the fall are way to tight and I refuse to buy the next bigger size. 

I. Refuse.

So, since I haven't been able to figure out what to blog about ..... for a little while. I figured tracking my success or failure might be a good start.

Dessert last night was 4 granny smith apples, 4 celery stalks and 3 carrots. I had eaten a Subway salad for dinner and was still hungry two hours later. I wasn't able to finish all of the juice last night so I took it with me this morning while delivering the high school kid to early morning band practice. 

I know this won't be easy and for the next three days it will probably suck - but I'm tired of feeling way too chubby. I used to be extremely skinny and in shape.....and that wasn't all that long ago. I still have those skinny clothes in my closet. 

Wish me luck! 

PS If I make it past the third day, I'll share my weight that I'm too embarrassed to admit at the moment.

Curiuos - why don't you just eat the vegetables? Cleaning a juicer is a beating.
