Girl on Fire!

Dear Mom, Jean Nidetch died.

Had to re-blog this post.
It’s poignant. Touching. Moving. .

Losing weight....Maintaining weight loss.... living life! And bacon!

I want to call my mom. Right now. God, I miss her.   I miss her daily, but some days my kids say or do something, I see something, I cook something, I think of something…. and I just want to talk to her. Well, that’s not exactly it. I want her to talk back.

Jean Nidetch died today. She was the founder of Weight Watchers.   In a time where many moms didn’t work, here was a woman who needed help, tried every diet in the book and hid Mallomars in her laundry. She saw a need to share. She saw a need that others had to share. And from this living room of sharing, a company was built and millions of people all over the world were able to change their life for the better.

I grew up with her in my house. Not really IN my house, but my…

Good Morning Luv-lies

Just a short post this morning.

Have some special things in store for the day- It’s that type of day 🙂

Love it when I get my workout in early.

  Done.

✔ Check.

Past tense.

The weather is great – it’s that kind of day!

Now, I’m having a breakfast dilemma….

Veggies sandwich OR Fresh veggie juice.

Juicy juice

Hmmmmm

Squeeze me

Stopped by one of my fav home shopping stores and picked up one of these cuties

Hand juicer

Can’t wait to use it!

So I guess that answers the question 🙂

Juice it is.

Fruits and veggies

So Luv-lies,

While I’m squeezing all of the  yumliciousness from this fruit, I’ve  Have a few fun facts to share with you about the benefits of this whole juicing thing.

* Okay, let’s start with the obvious.  Juicing fresh veggies and/or fruits gives you a reeeally tasty and NATURAL drink that is especially welcoming after a good workout.  No preservatives.  No sugar. For me, a no brainer. 

* I’m thinking that with all the natural-ness going on, I’ve got to be getting a ton of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and the likes.  You know.  All of that stuff that’s good for us that we didn’t want to think too hard about!  Now if you’re like me, then you scoop up all of the pull left behind. Because pulp equals fiber and (among other things) fiber equals a filing of fullness.  … Mindless eating be gone!

* I can have a good bit of my daily allowance  of fruits and veggies all at once. Yep. How cool is that?  One cup. No lugging tons of fruit around in my, already over packed lunch bag.  No more ‘used to be yellow’ brown bananas or bruised apples.  All in my ‘special’ cup. Which brings me to

* Beautiful cups. Loads of them!. All shapes and sizes. Just to show off my concoctions! I mostly like decorated transparent glass.  Love  the color of the juice peeking through.  Chillin’ on the balcony? Now that, that requires a mug.  More durable and sturdy.  Can’t see the fruity colors (unless I’m standing over it) so much but it’s sooooooo cute to look at
