So I just finished watching Miss America and feeling totally out of shape and, well, in general how every girl feels after watching Miss America, so I decided I’d write a blog to encourage myself (by the way, why did Miss America say that the first thing she was going to do after winning was thank the other contestants?? Was she thanking them for being inferior to her so that she could win? anyway. .)
First of all, I must admit that I haven’t been doing much Wii Fit lately. You know, life got busy, TV shows started back up, and plus anytime I turned it on during the day, Ali wanted to play it. Soo. . . .we’ve gotten out of the habit. But I really did enjoy it and I want to get back to it. We’ll see.
However, I am juicing quite religiously. I LOVE it – it is super delicious, easy, and quite nutritional. I make a mix of fruits, vegetables, or both for breakfast pretty much every day, and for lunch some days.
Most of the time I have definitely felt more energetic, and I’ve lost 4 pounds in 4 weeks. Although the juice is very filling as a meal (I usually feel stuffed after drinking it), I think it has shrunk my appetite considerably – I find myself eating MUCH LESS than I used to at regular meals.
Ali also loves my juices. I make my juice while she’s eating her breakfast or lunch, and she spends her whole meal excitedly talking about getting to drink “yummy juice!!!” or “DEEEElishus juice!!!”.
Even Chris had some this morning – he’s usually not around for breakfast and lunch, but since it was Saturday, here’s he and Ali sharing a glass of Pear/Orange/Grape/Apple Juice:
And although that juice didn’t really have a nice tint, I usually just love the colors of the juices. Here’s a picture of a vegetable mixture I made one day. It all mixed together while it was juicing, and then separated out into this beautiful rainbow:
So, that’s my update. Now, having flushed the images of Miss America out of my head, I can go back to being content with myself. As always, thank you for this wonderful therapy session!
