Three Days...So Proud of Myself.

How sad....I posted three times about my progress then stopped. I should be ashamed of myself. It's not that I haven't been trying to do things every day that are either good for my mind, body and/or spirit, but it has been hit or miss and I certainly haven't been blogging about it. Today I am going to change that. It's a new year and time for a new start. I've already resolved to make this happen so I won't call it a New Year's resolution, but I will resolve to blog about it more often so I (and you, hopefully) can keep myself accountable.

I bought myself a juicer for Christmas. I actually got it about a week before Christmas and have been using it quite regularly ever since then. Well, until my friend and her husband came to town from Phoenix, who are currently staying in their RV that is parked in my back yard. It has been great having them here, and since I have company to go out with and cook for I have been eating like a fiend since they arrived. Plus she shares my passion for sugar, so when we go out to eat we don't even try to skip over the dessert. I've had deep fried ice cream, cheesecake from the Factory itself, and German chocolate cake all in the last 3 days. And it was delicious. But now it has to stop.

This morning I got up a few minutes early to make sure I had time to make juice, figuring that would be a good way to get back on the bandwagon. I juiced my regular orange, apple, carrots and kale leaves and decided to add a little bit of ginger root. I hear it's good for you, so figured I'd give it a shot. I sliced off a little nub and threw it in there, wondering if that was going to be enough to even notice it was in there. I took a sip and holy crap. My throat was on fire! Who knew that a few measly drops of ginger juice could be so potent? It was crazy. I started getting used to it and managed to drink the whole thing, but next time I'll definitely be using about half that amount. Which means a small piece of ginger root will last me about a month. At least it's cost effective.

The day got off to a relatively good start. I'm hoping to go home and do one of my new stretching videos that are supposed to help me get my back *back* into shape.  Tune in tomorrow and see if I was successful! I hope you can stand the suspense.

Until tomorrow!
