Someone on hubby's blog warned I should be sure to include iron, omega-3's, and vitamin D. They also emphasized the word "fiber". Good idea -- multi vitamin added to the diet and making sure I get all of that daily.
Yesterday morning I had to go to a nominating committee meeting for next year's pta board. We held the meeting at another pta mom's house. She's one of those types -- house spotless, very warmly decorated and probably got up at 5am to bake a cake and blueberry muffins. Ugh. Homemade Blueberry Muffins. That was the hardest part of yesterday.
The rest of the day wasn't so bad. I even worked out on the Xbox-Kinect with the Nike workout.
Physical Ailments I'm hoping the Juicing will help cure.
Bad knee - from running and from taking a blow directly to the kneecap with a softball
Back pain - first injured working on the ambulance
Back pain - another injury from the car wreck 1-1/2 years ago
Menopause Symptoms - I had some lady parts removed a while back.....two of them used to supply me with estrogen.
Allergies - Probably not -- but, it would be nice to not wake up in the middle of the night with a sneezing fit - or pull the car over because the sneezing is so bad.
And of course --- my weight.
I weighted 4 days ago and was the same weight I was when I was at my most pregnant. Today, I am down 6.5 pounds. That sounds like a lot, but I'm skeptical -- I'm betting a lot of this is water weight since some of the veggies act as a diuretic.
I'm still feeling like I'm in a good mood and today I don't feel as "cloudy" as yesterday, but still a smidge. Yesterday I probably could have used a nap after that work out, but we had a little girl's talent show to attend. A post work out juice picked me right up.
Beets make things that come out of your body turn a different color. That might have been a little shocking.
I am drinking the recommended amount of water 3 days straight for the first time in......a long time.
Someone noted that cleaning the juicer would be a beating. Not really. It's takes a whole 2 minutes. Scrubbing the cooked on grease off the frying pan after the girls had turkey sausage with my homemade sauce takes longer.
