What The Juice
It all started when my neighbor was getting rid of stuff in her apartment. She called me and asked if I wanted her juicer. I expected that she’d have a half-working cheapo model, but I still said “yes”, as I had thoughts of trying such a challenge. I must have made a #NoExcuses manifestation, because this was a really nice Breville, in great condition.
What’s next? Read on, my friends.
I posted the picture of the juicer on Facebook and people reminded me of a the documentary “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead”. It’s the story of how a man used juicing to get healthy. I re-watched it and decided to jump right in to do what he calls a 10 Day “Reboot” of consuming just the micronutrient rich juices. My friend, Sri and some other Facebook friends are joining me.
Here’s the trailer for the documentary:
You can watch the whole thing online:
- Free at Hulu http://www.hulu.com/watch/289122 (this has commercials, but is free)
- Netflix http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Fat_Sick_Nearly_Dead/70173634?locale=en-US (need a subscription)
- YouTube http://www.youtube.com/Reboot (only works in Australia for the full film)
So, it all starts Monday. I have a fancy dinner tonight and then I’m going to the Bacon Social, Art and Music event tomorrow. I’ll hit up the Farmer’s Market on Sunday, to prepare for the big challenge. This will be a HUGE challenge for me, so feel free to check up on me to keep me encouraged and motivated. I definitely wouldn’t want to disappoint my neighbor who graciously gifted me the juicer and put this whole thing into motion.
I’m also going to work on my Aussie accent as a bonus! Watch for that in the video updates.
