New Years Resolution # 2 Getting Fit

I have tried so many times to do this.  I think every year I make this same resolution to get fit and be healthier.  Unfortunately every year I break it because I have a love/hate relationship with food.  I find that eating healthy is not very thrifty but I have come to realize that I can NOT put a price on my health.  Not too long ago I watched a documentary called Fat Sick and Nearly Dead.  If you have heard of it great, but if not then you should check it out.  Granted this method is not for everyone but I think its just what my body needs.  What it is (if you have never heard of it) is a juice fast.  its a bit over the top I know, but it helps rid your body of unwanted toxins and gives you that jump start your body needs to continue on its weight loss journey.  I wont be posting my every stat on this particular resolution (this is not that kind of blog) just updates here and there. Hopefully I can do this, I need to do this.  The last attempt I made to eat healthier I failed.  This time I plan to turn to God for my support. I know that only he can help me through this.  One really great and helpful resource is the website Reboot Your Life.  This site has a ton of helpful advice and recipes to help you get through.  I also found a really great Bible study called Made to Crave.  It teaches you that it's important that we learn how to crave Jesus and not food.  I have found it to be very helpful and inspirational.    
The main juice I plan on drinking every day is called the Mean Green Juice.   The reason is because # 1 it does not require too many expensive ingredients,  # 2 it's filled with so many antioxidants and it's rich in nutrients, and lastly it's so easy to make.  Here is the recipe for anyone interested in trying it.

1 Cucumber 
4 Celery stalks
2 Apples
1 handful of Kale (I like using spinach instead though)
1/2 a lemon
1 tbsp of ginger

Juice all ingredients in a juicer and enjoy!!!

Anyone else going to tackle the weight loss resolution this year???  Maybe we can be weight loss buddies together :)
