It has been just over two months since Chuck and I have been juicing and running. Chuck has gone from zero exercise to running 3 miles a day, and once or twice a week running 6, 8 or 9 miles. He has lost over 30 pounds, given up Red Bull and quit snoring. I am so proud of him. He continues to make healthy food choices and has replaced his M&M’s with raw nuts and all natural guacamole. He is much less irritable (even if he doesn’t notice, I do).
And me? I’m down 10 pounds, can now run a mile (even if I hate every step) and feel a bit better. I am juicing regularly and focusing on eating a clean diet of natural foods. I am currently drinking one cup of coffee in the morning and sipping on water and herbal tea the rest of the day. I am still dairy free (because of Apollo). I am looking forward to the day when I get a full night’s sleep, and assuming I will feel marvelous when that happens.
All of this has filtered over to even more healthy food for the kids and more running and exercise for them. I am planning to buy a bike this spring so I can switch up my exercise routine a bit.
If you haven’t seen Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, watch it already! It was the springboard for Chuck’s healthy lifestyle changes.
