(or this post could also be called 'I Think I'm Crazy') ;)
I don't have any major health issues, and I'm not terribly overweight, but after watching the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead on Netflix, I just wanted to 'reboot' my body with a three-day juice fast. So, here's what I'm doing:
6 - 8 kale leaves
4 celery stalks
2 green apples
small bit of ginger root
And this is what Mean Green looks like! It's really not so bad; the ginger and lemon hide any veggie taste.
Yesterday was my Day 1. I had four Mean Greens. And. I. felt. terrible! It's SO hard not to eat! I've never done any kind of fast before. I'm hypoglycemic, which means my blood sugar can get pretty low at times, and I tend to need to eat more frequently than others. Yesterday I felt tired, irritable, and loopy. I was pretty sure when I went to bed that I would stop the fast this morning.
However. . .
I slept soooo well! And when I woke up this morning, I felt good! There is a night-and-day difference from my Day 1 to today. I've lost one pound (I know, only 1! But slow and steady. . .), and I have much more energy today. I'm not snapping at my sweet family (thank you, Lord), and I'm pretty sure I can tough it out until Wednesday at lunch. I'm drinking Mean Greens as my breakfast everyday, since even before the fast, so I'll keep doing that to get my micro nutrients. I'm glad I'm doing the fast, and I'm hoping to make it a regular thing, maybe once every couple of months, who knows. But, I'll also be glad when it's over. ;) I've got spaghetti sauce cooking in the crock pot right now, and it's about to kill me!
Anyway. . .
I've got the Cycle 2 Memory Work Flip Chart finished, sans the proofing. My girls tried to help with that:
Yeah. . . sweet, huh? ;) So, it might be a few more days before it goes 'live' on C3. But I'm really excited about it, and I can't wait to share!
Mary and I started something new today - Monday Funday! Since our CC day is on Tuesday, we do Crecia's lesson plans Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and then we review it all on Monday. So, we started playing some fun review games today, hence the new Monday Funday idea. It's working out pretty well so far, and I'm glad to get some review in before heading back to CC tomorrow.
Make your week wonderful, friends!
