A couple weeks ago, my family and I watched a documentary called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. It was one of those random finds on Netflix but it opened my eyes to a whole new side of will power and the fight to become healthy. If you do have Netflix, it is totally worth the watch. Go to the link and check it out. This movie was brilliant! It was very moving and made me want to change. This movie was a bit more entertaining because the man who made it is from Australia. If that's not incentive enough to watch it, then I don't know what is.
My mum and dad decided, after a long discussion, to buy a juicer and we'd give it a try. We got the juicer a few days ago and have been having fun playing around with different juices. I have decided to go for 21 DAYS!!! I am starting this Saturday and am excited about it. This is where you say "What the hell?" It may seem ridiculous to drink straight up fruit and veggie juice for that long of period. But, after doing research, I found that it is okay to do this kind of juice fast every once and a while. Our bodies need it. We build up toxins in our body and doing these cleanses can give our body a reboot.
I have been yo-yo dieting for a couple years and I am so sick of it. I hate getting on the scale and looking down. I torcher myself in that way. Then I think "Oh well, what's another couple pounds going to do?" So I eat more and more while the belt notches get further and further away. It's not a good mentality to have and I am SO done. This week I am concentrating on preparing my body for the cleanse. This week is about cutting out carbs, sugar and processed foods. WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITHOUT BREAD! I think I inherited the carbohydrate gene from my mum. Although while she can eat and hardly gain a pound, I on the other hand put on the pounds like crazy!
I am really trying to focus on becoming healthy and break my addiction to food because that's what I think I have. An addiction. And it doesn't do me any good. I would love to be able to feel more confident and healthier about myself. I want to find out how much will power I can have. God give me strength! I'll keep you posted on my progress!
