All good things must come to an end....but were they really good?

Well, Happy New Year everyone. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I spent my holiday in England with my family - the first proper family Christmas I have had in 7 years. It was also my sons 2nd birthday while we were there so we had a lovely party for him which he thoroughly enjoyed and was so very spoiled that although we left the US with 3 suitcases, we returned home with SIX!

But, as with all new years, there come the dreaded 'resolutions' but this year I decided to really challenge myself. I saw a movie called 'Fat, Sick, and nearly dead' and it inspired me to shake things up a little  - ok, a lot. My new years resolution is simple "Get fit and healthy so I can be more active with my son".

The first step in my journey is a 30 day juice 'reboot'. Nothing but juice (80% veg/20% fruit) and water for the next 30 days. At the end of the 30 days I will visit my doctor, have all my blood work tested, and if i'm given the green light, i'm going to try for another 30 days.
After that, I shall slowly start to incorporate solid foods back into my diet. We already eat all organic, and no processed foods, so it shouldn't be too hard to start by adding one poached egg for breakfast with a fruit/veg smoothie.

I'm on day 2. I'll keep you updated on my progress :)
