Glorious Green Juice!
The Big Change starts tomorrow... But in order for changes to happen you need to be prepared! Yesterday my boyfriend, Jason, and I went out and bought a treadmill, a new scale that tracks your weightloss, and (my favorite purchase) a JUICER!
So, last night Jason put together our new treadmill, and this morning I ran to the organic produce section of our grocery store and stocked up on yummy greens and veggies and some fruit... I also picked up some boneless skinless chicken breast, a packet of low calorie seasoning, and some rice pilaf (made with olive oil instead of butter) to make for dinner, along with steamed broccoli and a large yummy salad.
As soon as I got home (and on an empty stomach) I juiced a lovely green drink a la Kris Carr:
1 Cucumber
2 Stalks of Celery
1 Broccoli Stalk
1 Small handful of Kale
1 Small handful of alfalfa sprouts (I couldn't find sweet pea sprouts)
and 1/2 of a green apple
Kris adds 1 inch of ginger, but I omitted this for now.
I drank the juice while preparing our dinner (to be eatten later, but we have a busy day planned so a re-heat and eat meal is appropriate), halfway through my 16 oz. of sunshine I started perking up, a had more bounce in my step, I was concentrating better... It's AMAZING!
Once I had the chicken in the oven I juiced another glass of green juice for Jason and promptly brought it to him at work... Jason was skeptical of the green juice at first, but after one sip he smiled and said "I like this! I could drink it everyday!" YAY! So I think we are on the right track so far.
I'm hoping to get a chance to walk the dog before eating dinner and to walmart to get a memory card for my new digital camera! Then it's time to get dolled up and head out to ring in the new year!

Day One starts tomorrow with a green drink in the morning followed by walking the dog for a warm up, then my first workout! 2010 is going to be FABULOUS, I can feel it!
