Funday Sunday with the Family

September 2 was another Funday Sunday where in the Tree House. Zoe Bug and her Momma where here all day long. Momma and I sneaked away to go birthday shopping for The Bug's 1st birthday next weekend. We visited a Whole Foods first to get a fresh made juice... I had a BEET IT (orange, beets, carrots and lemons) and Keelee had a Good Morning Juice (orange, carrots and apples.) The perfect start for our 4 store shopping spree. Whole Foods and Sprouts for our good healthy foods and soaps and Dollar Tree and Target for party supplies and birthday clothing. Even picked up Zoe's 1st Christmas gift from Fisher Price (of course). Got some fun snapshots of the baby playing with the citrus and apples here at the house. Lots of fun now time to sleep so I can finish her 1st Birthday doll and whip up some doll blankets and pillow for her buggy.

Til tomorrow
Stay juicing and healthy!

It's a New Juicing Month!

September is here and with it a new challenge... Work out 3 days a week at the gym and get the weight lowered some more. It has been 5 1/2 months since I started my journey to better health. So far I have lowered by weight from 259 pounds to 204 pounds. At the present my weight is up a little from that but part of that is from some unexplained swelling in my legs. Even so I am very happy and feel so much better than I did when I started 2012.

 My goal this month is to hit the 200 mark. To keep me honest and on point I commit to sharing with  You my friends, my daily steps.

Stepping I did this morning with my Beet It Juice and an hour walk around the Apt Complex. Not to bad heat wise at 7:30am and Chico my hearing ear dog loved it.

Lunch was created with some extra zip from my plums that were getting soft. YUMMM.
One thing I know I need to do is lower my fruits and raise my greens and veggies in my juices. So hard when it is hot outside and I just want ice cream SO BAD. But I just might have reached the perfect combo for my lunch juice. I have some freezing for a quick whip in the blender tonight for an "Ice Dessert".

My lunch juice was

6 plums ( smaller)
1 Cup of Fresh Cherries
3 Slices of Fresh Pineapple

1 Beet
2 Oranges
12 Carrots
1 Organic Cucumber

Juice in the order listed... The reason being that the harder produce will wash out the residue left from the softer produce... Nothing is wasted.

So now I am off to make Mean Green and do some sewing for my grand daughter's 1st Birthday.
