Welcome to You and All your Brilliant Parts!

In 2009 I lost 40 lbs and I got a new butt. How? Diet and exercise, that's the short answer. But all of the things I learned that made it emotionally possible, that allowed me to succeed when I had failed before - that will take longer. This blog celebrates the intelligence of the body. Please leave me a note to let me know what you think of this writing, if it's been helpful. I welcome your input and experience.

Week 2 of pre-pre fast

Last week's diet had it's ups and downs.

One up was a great bike ride Tom and I took on Saturday - 30 miles, the longest ever.  Some downs include forgetting I'd eliminated alcohol a couple of times (really, I forgot) and giving in to stress for a whole-wheat cracker and goat cheese binge one night.  It helps me that we only keep good food around the house - when I just let go and munch down, I don't do myself as much damage as in times past.

So you see why I give myself three weeks to ratchet down for the juice fast.

How's it going for you?

Later, Jenni

  1. I'm doing good however, last week twice I had a 1/2 c. ice cream and once a few small pieces of licorice. Both items were made with seemingly harmless ingredients except sugar. The side effects reminded me why I aim to always eat fresh.

    I am exercising 30-40 minutes most days with my last meal eaten between 4:30-7pm depending on my schedule and the volume of food I consumed earlier in the day.

    My priority goals are daily exercise, smaller portions and absolutely no sugar!
