Anyone who knows me will tell you I don't do anything in half measures.
I jump. I do. A lot of times I succeed:
- I traveled the world by myself for 6 months with only my only processions being my backpack.
- I thought about running and signed up, trained and then ran a half marathon.
- My niece was diagnosed with cancer and I quit my job.
- I looked into foster care and was licensed, with kids 4 months later.
Extreme right? That's me!
While I was watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead today I realized that while I've made some big changes in the past 6 months and lost over 20 pounds it really isn't enough. I am at a weight that's been my average for most of my adult life. I am comfortable. Well, I am comfortable-ish. But that's not what I want. I want to be better than average. I want to be happy-er. So a juicing kick-start to a healthier lifestyle moving forward is where its at. (Anyone have a juicer?)
The caffeine is going to suck. Coffee is one of the great loves of my life and one of the biggest money wasters of all time. And, I am crazy addicted. So I plan to take it slow for the first week - cutting it down to one cup, then out. Not to say that I will never have coffee again - that would be TOO sad - but we're going to take a break in our relationship.
