Who’s Coming With Me? Thank You, Jan!*

Its almost March and time for me to report about my juice challenge, as well as introduce my next 30 day reset that I’m challenging you to join.

Though I don’t have quantitative results about my juicing success (haven’t weighed myself yet), I know I have accomplished so much of what I was hoping for. I eat so many more veggies and fruit, and I don’t feel “right” if I’ve had too many carbs, especially wheat. In fact, I’ve learned that bread and wheat products in general make me feel bloated and sometimes crampy. Additionally, I haven’t had a Pepsin or desire for one in some weeks. When I have the option of choosing a sugary beverage in a corner store, I pass that case right up. I don’t choose water 100% of the time, but when I’m at home I do drink seltzer almost exclusively.

More than breaking poor food habits, I’m starting to appreciate my body more. I see it as resilient and perfectly tuned to what it needs and also to what’s harmful to it. I plan to continue making fresh juice and smoothies my daytime meals, and I hope my March challenge will deepen my positive relationship with my body.

So alas, the March challenge reveal. I’ve been stalling because I cant believe I am committing to this.

For the next 30 days I am going to work out for 30 minutes a day.

I know this build up may have been anti-climatic for some, but trust me when I say that I loathe exercise. I do a lot of walking and stairs when I’m out at school sites, but I do have to take breaks while visiting my co-located** schools on the 5th floor. I do manage to stick to working out if I have a workout buddy or specific goal like an upcoming race. I’ve had neither since 2003. Nowadays, unless a dog is chasing me, I’m not running for anything.

So that’s where I’m at. I have 2 days to come up with an exercise plan and for you to take this challenge with me. Join by replying below, or leave any of your thoughts (and prayers).
