Green Juice and Grilled Cheese;; hey haven't I posted that before???

Well it's been what, three weeks now? I've had juice every day, even the one day I didn't make it myself because the kitchen was a wreck I bought a super green at Jamba Juice - OMG, $8.16 for 16oz.  And I thought it was expensive to make at home. Not so much!

After having a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch at home I went out running errands, one of which was returning a REALLY LARGE swim suit to Kohl's. At customer services she asked what was wrong with it, and I said, "I just couldn't make myself put it on". Walking carefully on my painful heel, I was hobbling like an old lady as I made my way out of the store. Not me, not me, not me. 

This is not who I am, this is not what my life is supposed to be like right now. Time to take a stand, and pick up where I left off fighting for myself.  I stopped for groceries then came home and made juice for dinner; fennel, power greens, celery, lemon, grapefruit, apple & kiwi. There was supposed to be mint but I forgot it - next time, but this was delicious anyway.

I have done most of the things suggested to start a juice fast; weaning myself back off of processed foods and animal protein (damn you sausage mcmuffin!). Now I need to jump in and make a go of it. Juice, salads, nuts; no eating out; moving everyday either on the bike or in the pool. Once a little weight is off my heel, it can begin to get better and once it has healed I can start walking again. I miss it for so many reasons.

Feeling positive this afternoon, or prevening as Sheldon might say, and looking forward to making some progress this week. Sunday nights are Wi nights again and I think that will be the only weighing going on. 

No matter how many times I 'start over' or 'reaffirm' how crazy I am, I will not give up until I find myself; I'm so tired of this stranger.

I stumbled upon your blog looking for clean burn shape reviews. I love your honesty!!.
I'm 45 & have struggled with my weight all my life. I started CBS 1 week ago so I'm curious to see how I do. It's so hard for me to maintain things long term without accountability & support. Good luck. I look forward to seeing more!

There are so many good things to say about the CBS program. But I think like most things we need to surround ourselves with positive energy and determination. I am embarrassed by how I flaked on the program, and would love to do anything I can to support you; it would be good for me too! Check in and let me know how you're doing :)
