  • Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: Like most everyone else here I would like to improve my health and shed some extra baggage along the way. I'm not looking for a quick fix but more of a long term switch to a healthier more energetic way of living. I love the idea of sharing the journey( and recipes!!) with others :)
  • Favorite Juice? My homemade spicy veggie juice!!
  • Food temptation? chocolate...if i could make a chocolate juice?lol

    Keep on juicing, I think the majority of us have up and down days. I have been stuck on a weight for about three weeks, but know that it will come down eventually.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    The days have come and gone and I am rebooting. I have screamed, cried, slept, showered and I am rebooting. I have to. I know this now. It's not just to lose weight. It's what's going to take me to the next level in my life. I finally realised that with all the chaos going on in my life right now that I am not going to be able to continue on with my health the way it is now. There will always be $h#t days and maybe even $h#t weeks but I cannot continue to keep running on empty. Even worse,I cannot continue to keep going day to day relying on the barrage of medication that has been my saving grace for the last 8 years (and longer). I realise that some meds will be necessary for the rest of my life such as my insulin but the rest of this madness has to stop. Physically and emotionally I had just let myself go. The days had just begun to blur together and the autopilot had kicked in. I was trying to do my best to help several family members in bad situations when I myself realised I was not enjoying life but really just living, breathing and feeding my bruised and battered emotions. How long could I go on helping them when my morning ritual consisted of getting up to take a handful of meds and going back to bed so they could work. Starting my day at noon with the thoughts that this day I would go for my walk, tonight I would juice, later I would relax. And every night telling myself that tomorrow I would make time to do these things after I did the the other stuff. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Long story short (I know...too late right??) last we left off sci was having a fit over Friday. It came and went...horribly but I made it through, blah, blah, blah...epiphany...and here we are. I spent the week cleaning out the crap from my house...literally, hahaha...and I am REBOOTING...period. I will continue for the next 3 weeks and 3 days because we will be on vacation for 5 days in Nothern Vermont and will be in a camper without electricity. Its a yearly family trip and the highlight of our summer. Until then I am eating and juicing my fruits and veggies and feeding my mind body and soul.

    Again thank you all for your messages and post...and your continued inspiration.

    How did your "family stuff" day go? Your doctor appointment too? Are you any closer to that "light" yet? Are you any closer to writing that "book?" You know, the one that you have already started a few chapters in but don't know it? hahahahaa Praying for ur health! BB

    Hey Pal... Good to see you.

    Ok...Ok. So I'm freaking out a bit here. Off to see the Dr tomorrow for my monthly check in. It used to be weekly but since my evil pancreas has been behaving and the AS is what it is, I only have to check in unless there's a problem. Aside from an adjustment he'll be checking my knee so we can figuere out which brace I need for walking. I tore my mcl several years ago mountain biking and since I've been energetic enough for walking at a good pace now, I just need some support because it's quite painful on the trails. Hopefully I don't have to use the hinged metal one cause it's awkward and likes to randomly squeek. Anyway I'm just babbling because we have some heavy family stuff going on tomorrow that I'm just not looking forward to… dreading in fact. Since Monday my heart has been in my stomach. Being the emotional anchor for the family, I have fallen back on some old habits that I'm not proud of. For one I have been eating...late at night...a lot. TBT I've been eating until I'm beyond full. It doesn't matter what either. I don't go out and buy stuff, I just eat whatever is here, mostly bread/sandwiches/toast/English muffins/ with of course butter/peanut butter/jam. It doesn't matter that I'll have steamed veggies and salad for dinner when I eat 2 sandwiches and 2 English muffins at midnight. And freaking ramen noodles...for real?? The second is, and I can't believe I'm even saying this...I've started smoking again. At night. A habit that I thought I'd long given up.

    I know these thing are bad. Worse than bad. I know the consequences...but I'm in a hole here. I can see the light at the top but I just cannot feel it. This situation is completely out of control and out of my hands. It's the fear of the unknown that frightens me the most. I am not a control freak and have always lived by a few simple guidelines. Be honest. Live in the now. Help others. Show your love everyday. Live life.

    I have also believed that there is no sense in worrying about things that you cannot control. You do your best and that's all you can do. Sometimes we just have to trust in the Lord that we are in his hands...and have faith. Faith that we can weather the storm.

    Now I am reminded of these things. I want to run to my room. I want to scream from the top of my lungs. I want to cry. My own words have felt hollow and empty repeating them over and over in my head. The subconscious drone. I needed to write. To reach out. To remind myself tomorrow that I made it through today. To remind myself that there will always be adversity in life...How we handle these challenges and the choices we make, make us who we are. When I look back I want to know I faced my fear, I did not turn away, I did not give up.

    Soon the sun will rise... bringing a new day to life. Breathe. I am ready. Have faith.

    A new day to shine. A new beginning. A day to remember...this is my day.

    THROW OUT THOSE CIGARETTES!!!!! THEY ARE CANCERETTES!!!!!

    HURRY, DO IT NOW!

    OKAY, now tht that's done, your story sounds very similar to mine, dreading unwanted family events, doctor stress, food stress, fear of the unknown does it every time... It's the devil's best weapon.... He knows your weaknesses... Say to him, GET BEHIND ME, SATAN! YELL AT HIM, CUSS AT HIM... THROW FOOD AT HIM..... and STOP PUNISHING YOURSELF FOR THINGS THAT YOU CANNOT CONTROL!!!! You are not a bad person. You are NOT YOUR ADDICTIONS.... You do HAVE ADDICTIONS, but they do not define who you are on the inside, which is a beautiful, smart, caring woman...... All of which you should be proud to be. Be proud of where you have come from, your winnings, your successes, your awesomenesses......... Get back up off that floor and figure out a PLAN for your dreaded family day, and STICK TO THE PLAN..... Don't be nice to them if they are expecting to use you as a rug under their feet.... FIGHT FOR YOURSELF, as no one else can do!!!!! Praying for you, and your dreaded day to turn out much better than you expected it would...... Look for the GOOD in it..... Take care. Stop the Punishment. BB

    Hi sci_girl,

    Just sounds like you have a lot on your plate and old habits are hard to break. Those old habits will always be there waiting in the dark to comfort you and take you back no questions asked especially in times of stress. I don't think you have given up because those that do never question what they are doing and feel guilty about it. They just accept this is who they are and succumb to past behavior. Your reaching out and questioning your actions proves you want change. You know there is a better way and if you keep fighting you will push through this wall as well. Nothing is permanent accept DEATH so as long as you have air in your lungs and will in your heart you can make and see positive change. One step at a time, but you have to take the first one. Trust me when I say I know how you are feeling and it does get better but you have to decide enough is enough and find a way to push through girly...

    And have FAITH in yourself that you can! :-)

    Sci_girl. Look for the anchor that can hold you in place and keep you from drifting to the bad place. I know there is one. Think back to when you were on track. What can you hold on to to help with this hard time. It's a small period of time and you can not allow it to hurt you. YOU don't need hurting.
