September FUN

Last Saturday we went to picnic at the POPS (the Modesto Symphony Orchestra kick off concert). We splurged and sat in the "Reserved Lawn" section (see our shirt badges). It was so much fun. We brought a picnic (of real food - not veggie juice) and sang the night away to Motown hits. For those who've been wondering we are still on our juice fast but we have added in yummy, healthy dinners a few nights a week. I'm down 23 lbs so far. :) Totally worth all the juiced spinach.

This last pic is from the Balloon launch during Labor Day Weekend.  It was really cool outside and I got to wear my leggings!  I'm super excited about leggings with a tunic, cardigan and boots.  Lots of people stopped me to tell me my outfit was cute (can you believe it?! )  It was awesome...YAY LEGGINGS!

Fat, sick, and nearly dead

Yesterday I, Mike, watched this documentary that my brother told me about. It blew me away. I have been suffering from an unknown rash for the past year or so. This Joe Cross had something similar to what I have. I figured that since I'm at my ropes end, I might as well try this juice detox and see if it can eliminate my rash just like it did for him.  Also, Amber's Aunt Kathy has been trying to get me to do this detox for months and she is pleased that I am finally giving it a go.  Thanks Kathy!!!

 So Amber bought a Juiceman today and we went to Raleys and bought $55 worth of veggies and some fruits. We start on Monday, July 23. No food... just 4 - 20 oz juices a day. All the info is here at 

  I plan to give daily updates here on our blog as to how its going and how I feel. I am also working out for 1 hour every day at Modesto Power. I look forward to Christmas time when I am rash free, feeling great, and I can donate all my clothes and buy smaller sizes. (I also convinced Amber to do this with me to give me support) Thanks Amber!!!
