Back...with a vengeance...and a green smoothie

This time I really mean it when I say I'm going to blog more. I miss it. I miss everyone's blogs I read. I really missed EVERYTHING. Especially my life!

The strange thing is that I feel like I lost my job again and that was an unexpected reaction. I guess when you go from 120 miles an hour back to normal pace it's a little bit of an adjustment. I've been equating it to when my wedding was over and how strange it felt not to think about it constantly. The project was a HUGE success and I'm proud to say I finished it with no mistakes and barely any meltdowns. Did I mention I gained 10 pounds?

So, back to my desk at home, my dogs, my gym, my trainer, my yoga and my own kitchen. All making healthy living possible again. I'm also ridiculously inspired by "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" and if you haven't seen it, drop what you're doing and watch instantly on Netflix :) For right now, I'm juicing during the day and having a sensible dinner and I can't believe how amazing I feel. I never in a million years thought I would crave a drink that had vegetables in it but I want it more than food. It's the strangest thing.

And for even more good news I got 2 cortisone shots in the foot (ouch!) for a tendonitis issue and it seems to have cured me. I can't run or walk for 6 weeks (down to 5 now!) but I can do everything else. The workout schedule is brutal and expensive but if that's what it's going to take then I'm just going to keep doing it until I can't any more or I run out of money!

I wish I could bottle up this energy and save it for the bad times (I'd mix it in a smoothie!)


  1. my family and I did a 10 day juice fast in January. I was amazed at how wonderful it made me feel and how I did not get hungry at all....we did the seven days of raw fruits and veggies--ten days of juice---ten days of raw fruits and vegggies

  2. I'm so glad you're back! You blog is the first one I've ever read and I miss all the posts you usually have. Keep up the good work! I'm rooting for you :)

  3. I have way too much to write in a comment-do you have an email I could write you through? You are an inspiration & will definitely reach your goals! Thanks for being so transparent.


  4. Glad you're back!!! I watched that movie - was tempted to try juicing until I realized that I don't have a juicer...but I'm glad it's working for you and you're feeling so good!

  5. I told you. Juice is the shit! I've seen that documentary and it's awesome. If you need additional fear/motivation, try "Forks Over Knives". I'm juicing one meal a day and even having it delivered on the road. The energy boost is insane. So glad you're back on it. I'm done with WW, but we still need to find reasons to get together!
