Ingrid Michaelson

So let me first start off by saying that I NEVER do this. I am a person who doesn't voluntarily post my shenanigans online but I did decide to post this. I got this guitar for Christmas a few years ago and have picked up a few songs here and there. I can't do the fancy handwork or strumming by any means but I can play the easy chords. Oh, and I have never really tried to play a song in its entirety. And the second thing is, why did I wait so long to learn an Ingrid Michaelson song? I love her music but never thought to try and play it. I picked up this song yesterday and this was the easiest song ever to learn!

I have been doing my juice fast for the past three days and I am definitely seeing results. I am down 7 pounds already. I have been drinking plenty of water and went on a fantastic walk today. I have been experimenting with different juices and have found I like some but others not so much. It has been hard! I miss food but this reboot means more to me than a plate of chicken fettuchini alfredo with a side of breadsticks. Although, writing that just made my mouth water. They say the first three days are the hardest. Today, I definitely felt the side effects. The tiredness and headache caused me to be a bit short with my family this morning which I am not too proud of. I mean I've been angry before but I literally could not control myself from my emotions this morning. Here's hoping for a better day tomorrow.
I have been learning so much about the fruits and veggies we eat which most of us don't eat enough of. The benefits of these foods are absolutely phenomenal. Did you know that celery is a coumarin which have been shown to help in the prevention of cancer? Did you know that apple's help in the prevention of Alzheimer's and lower cholesterol? Did you know that carrots reduce the risk of a stroke and nourish our skin? So my parents were right. Veggies are good!
