Well, none of you must have been concerned that I had rode a juice truck off a bridge...because I havent received any panic emails from you, but JUST in case any of you have been staying up nights worrying about my well-being, Heather and I have made it to day 4 without killing each other or anyone else. Day one was really the toughest. Heather called my office at 11:30 am...after being awake and "juicing" for less than 5 hours and said "I can't do this". So I marched right over to HER office and told her that she can do this and that she will do this because WE AREN'T QUITTERS...and if she WANTED to quit then everyone would know it (she is such a sucker for peer pressure). She said "I haven't told anyone we are juicing", I told her "Well, I've told EVERYONE". So, she sucked it up and drank her juice (holding her nose like a big girl).
Day 2 I made a juice with 3 cups of blueberries, a couple handfuls of spinach, a carrot, and a orange. That was much better.
Yesterday gave birth to our favorite juice so far called Peach Pie. It called for 3 sweet potatoes, 2 golden delicious, 4 peaches and some cinnamon. Now it should be noted that I thought perhaps this was going to be DIS-GUST-ING. I mean, who wants to drink sweet potatoes?!? But guess what? It really tasted like a peach pie! I mean...minus the pie part.
I almost...ALMOST snuck a couple of peanuts last night. They are taunting me from the cabinet. A sane person would throw them away. But who ever said I was sane.
Our Double Bridge Run on February 2nd is fast approaching. It's 9.2 miles and I havent ran in weeks. We set out yesterday for a 6 mile run. It was sad. Both Heather and I walked at least half. My goal is to do that route 2 more times this week, improving my time each time. The thing about the run coming up is, there is a "sag wagon" that follows the slowest person and if you don't keep a 14 minute pace...they pick you up.
I won't be the slowest person, but I COULD get picked up if I dont get to steady training.
I hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend!
