The whole idea of eating healthier is one of those New Year’s resolutions that pretty much everyone makes. We want to exercise more, watch what we eat, and just feel better about ourselves. I chalk it up to all of the indulging we do the few weeks before the new year. Eating and drinking with friends and family will always cause a culinary hangover by January. This year, my husband and I have vowed to get healthy in 2015 and reboot our body. We are starting our juicing journey.
A few months ago, we sat down on the couch, pulled up Netflix, and watched Fat Sick & Nearly Dead. I’d heard about this documentary for years, but didn’t have to desire to watch it until recently. My husband has been on a journey to lose weight and be healthier in 2014, but with many vacations, a demanding work schedule, pregnant wife with ridiculous cravings, and kids that REALLY love pizza, things fell apart by mid-year. I haven’t felt right within myself for a few months, mostly after I had Baby Frugal. I’ve felt off, and even my skin and energy has reflected that.
Fat Sick & Nearly Dead was a wonderful wake up call. Joe Cross takes us on his journey to not only get healthier, but to save his own life. His transformation was amazing, and the fact that he did it just by committing to juicing every day for 60 days was phenomenal. We were motivated. We wanted to reboot our bodies, and vowed to do so in January. So, starting on January 12th, we’ll start this new adventure. Our Breville Juice Extractor is ordered and we’re picking our favorite recipes to try. The best part is that I’ll be taking you all on the journey with us! I plan to write weekly posts about our journey, and (somewhat) daily updates on my Instagram and Facebook pages.
If you’re looking for a new way to get healthy in 2015, watch Fat Sick & Nearly Dead on Netflix. As of January 1st, Fat Sick & Nearly Dead 2 is available on Netflix as well, so you’ll be able to see how Joe changed his own life, and then follow up with how he’s changed the lives of millions of other people all around the world.
You can do this. WE can do this. Let’s make 2015 count!
