    OKAY FIRST NIGHT OF RANGERS BASEBALL I had two hot Dogs But on the plus side I am still around 1200 calories for today and walked a fast for me 2 miles. Our juicer finally arrived. I am excited about juicing and not having to eat the gross sometimes pulp. It can turn a nasty color if you don't get it down quickly. I made the mistake also of not having tomatoes for the bloody marie. I threw in canned rotel and nearly threw up. I did drink it all. It was hot!

    My dad brought us up on seed in hawaii. I remember coming through Hawaii and staying with friends of the family. We got leis of seed at the airport. That seed was the best I ever tasted. Does anyone know what kind that was? I think the wrapper was a very thin white with blue writting. I like seed from taiwan and vietnam but the seed from Hawaii I thought was best. Are any of you eating seed after juice fast? When I was thin seed was great whenjogging

    I wanted to join you all because I was born in Hawaii in 1959 and actually lived there until I was 3. I also have a sister buried there. She died before I was born. Anyway I live in Texas and grew up in Asia. Rebooting for the first time.

    Yay it is Friday...so excited for the weekend. Nothing special planned but life is grand either way! Yesterday was day 14 of my reboot so 2 weeks down!! I am amazed and proud of myself! Last night my husband and I went to pick up some Bruno Mars tickets from his cousin and he wanted to eat pho on the way back so I told him let's go...he ate and I drank up the free water. The egg rolls smelled good but I wasn't at all overly tempted. I have got to put my health first by staying focused on the goal...hard at times but I know it is worth it. I have a couple of trips planned this year and I want to fit in those airline seats better, walk as a tourist easier, and eat smarter. In the last 14 days I have lost 18 pounds and am starting to get up easier out of bed and just plain move...it's small changes like that I notice first.



    Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Aloha...

    I wanted to share the link to one of my favorite juices...I almost always have it as my morning one since I find it so refreshing and I look forward to it as I haven't had coffee since I started the juice fast.

    The only thing I added to it lately has been mint and I do like the kick that's given. I also add chia seeds to it. The rest of the day at work I am drinking a green juice and then again at home as well...but I do tend to end the day with another majority fruit based one. I think looking forward to a favorite juice keeps me on track and doesn't make me feel like I'm depriving myself of anything...helps to keep bitter feelings at bay. Leaving work early today and headed to the beach...hopefully the west side won't let me down and will provide much sun.

    Just starting Day 11 today and still feeling good, inspired, and on track. So far the numbers lost are 12lbs but the liberation from food has been so much more of a better feeling. I did not do much exercise wise over the weekend but sleep is just as important and that I did :) Well at least an hour nap on Sunday and an hour extra Sunday morning.



    For some reason though over the weekend my craving for black pepper forced me to do some research into recipes that included black pepper. Just so you all know...black pepper to me is shoyu to locals here...I put it on everything and it's not just a small sprinkle...sometimes my food can't be seen through the black pepper :P So, with that being said, the craving hit me hard. I came across a savory juice recipe that had black pepper in it, a V8 version juice recipe as well, and then I came across a vegetable broth recipe. The broth recipe was right up my alley but I didn't have all things on hand so I created my own version. I threw red onions, ginger, garlic, thai basil leaves, lemon grass, green onions, sea salt, and LOADS of black pepper into a pot with water. Brought it to boil, added more black pepper, and then strained it into a coffee mug. I really enjoyed the taste and the change up.



    Below is the link to the original broth recipe and there may be more out there but do your own experimentation with what you have on hand if anything.

    I didn't get to check out any of the local juice bars this weekend as hoping but I will be sure to post once I do.

    Today is my day 7!!! It's a weird sort of feeling making it to this "mile stone" knowing that I still have quite a few more days (if not weeks and months) to go. I must admit though I don't actually think about food. I think it's because my mindset is that food will always be there and what I have to do now is sacrifice 3 months to focus on me. I don't think I'm asking too much since the dammage done to this body by overeating has been 100 times longer than 3 months. So far I have lost 9 pounds...I'm feeling energized and inspired. It has been fun experimenting with the juices. This morning I threw half an avocado into 2 of the 4 juices I pack for my commute and work. It added a much thicker texture making it interesting and smoothie like but tasty indeed!! Have fun experimenting but don't get crazy! haha..I've had one bad drink so far, tough to swallow is an understatement...chasing it down with water helped :)



    Here's the link to the news article again for Hawaii Juice Bars. Next time I head to chinatown to practice taking photos I'll plan to hit up the extract juice bar.

    TV and snacking is similar to the movie theater and popcorn experience for myself. A life long habit that has to be overcome. Do you know why a man needs a TV remote? To see what else is on. : )

    haha...I can remember the days without a remote...the pleading with the siblings to change the channel to one of the other 8 and the time wasted deciding who was going to get up and do it...amazing how far we've come :) I hear you about movies and popcorn, my dad was that way and still is, my vice is chewing gum...luckily there are natural chewing gums out there for me...I didn't make it 3 days without going to Down to Earth to hunt down some natural chewing gum :) Maybe standing when watching TV will make it harder to snack??

    Well it happened to me today. A break in my abstinence. The compulsion swooped me up. I attribute this break to my chronic TV viewing. Food and TV go together for myself. 15 days of ignoring my humble flat screen and in particular the Malaysian jet 370 news, I decided to tune in and many blurry eyed hours later the food thoughts attacked. I ignored them for a time but ... I'll need prayers to get back on track mañana no doubt.



    Peace and much aloha,



    Bill

    Start fresh today Bill! Don't let that slip define the rest of your story :) I will admit the commercials alone are hard to watch...I read up on the news using my tablet and thankfully have a husband who likes to play games on our TV so I don't get much time on it :)

    Thanks for sharing that beautiful quote! We have getting comfortable to look forward to after the uncomfortable feelings have passed...have a SUPER upcoming weekend!!
