Juice Juice Everywhere

Joe Cross
There's never a lack of entertainment in our house because:

1.  We have four children under the age of seven.
2.  We have two dogs.
3.  Bill lives here.
4.  Our friends are funny.
5. We have Netflix.

Should you ever come to our home and find Bill relaxing,
you'd probably see him either at our computer or in his recliner:
-chips and salsa in hand,
-sweet iced tea beside him
-and a documentary playing on Netflix
(or something on PBS, the History channel, or the Discovery channel).

A couple of weeks ago, Bill watched
Fat Sick and Nearly Dead.
(I still need to see it in its entirety.)
Have you seen it yet?  What did you think?  Did it make you want to go out and buy a juicer?

Well if you didn't, no worries - Bill did.
He went to BBandB the next day and brought home a Breville.
Since then we've been juicing for breakfast and lunch, and we try to have a well-balanced dinner.
Key word = try.

Our goal, of course, is to lose weight -
but ultimately we want to treat our bodies nicely,
be better about what we're stuffing in our faces,
and set good eating examples for our daughters.

So far:
we both have more energy
we're not nearly as starving as we thought we'd be
our nails are growing like crazy
we've probably eaten way more fruits and vegetables in the last couple of weeks than we have in the last few months - not a joke
We're excited to see how we'll be feeling in the months ahead.

Thank you, Joe!
I like that you're healthy -
and I'm a fan of your accent.
