Time to Prepare

The day is almost here! Tomorrow I am going to relaunch my Juice Plus business! I renewed everything about a month ago, but I really wanted to kick things off at the beginning of the month so July 1st became the starting point.

I have been taking Juice Plus for a little more than a year now, but not regularly until about 6 months ago. It is the only change that I made in my daily routine so far. That changes tomorrow. My first change will be all about how and what I snack on throughout the day. I am dumping potato chips and fun size candy and adding healthier alternatives like fruits and veggies. This will be a big change for me since I really like chips and chocolate, but I have to do this if I want to get my belly back.

I also plan to get back on the road and walk 30 minutes everyday. I really like walking around my neighborhood now, plus there’s some cool wildlife around here that will start showing up on my Instagram account. If it’s raining, because it is summer time in Florida, I can do a 30 minute bike ride on Wii Fit Plus.

Last, but certainly not least, I am going to cut back on my Pepsi intake…again. Instead of just dropping it completely, I am going to ween myself off it. Today, I will keep a log of how many I drink throughout the day and start cutting it out from there and gradually decreasing it through the month of July. I want to be done with it by the end of the month.

I’ll keep you posted on how things are going. 🙂

Opposites Attract

It was completely by chance that my husband and I met. I was at a friend’s house, just a few doors down from mine. His new roommate came home from work one night, and his ride home that night decided to come in for a few minutes. The roommate, Jason, was a friend of mine from elementary school. His ride home from work ended up becoming my husband. That was 22 years ago!!!

The attraction was quite noticeable – I loved his Doc Martin work boots and he loved my ripped jeans. We spent the next week battling each other on Dr. Mario and probably drove everybody crazy with our trash talk. We were obviously flirting big time and also got quite competitive with that game…lol. Fast-forward two years, we became husband and wife and have been together ever since.

Looking back on over two decades together, it is amazing that the two of us made it through all that we have. We have gone through so many challenges together and our relationship grew stronger each and every time. We really are opposite in so many ways. He is spontaneous and impulsive. I am stable and stubborn. He needs to constantly be doing something. I love having the option to sit, relax, and do nothing. He procrastinates. I like to plan things out and get them done.

Nonetheless, the magnetism between us is an unbreakable bond. I can’t imagine life without him and I don’t want to ever find out what that would be like. (yep…scoring brownie points here) 😉
