Call me motivated....

carrots, pineapple, pears, mangos, lettuce, celery, cucumber, radishes, spinach, bananas, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, grapefruit, broccoli, bananas, red peppers, apples, apple-pears, lemons.

 One of my friends recommended a documentary to me called "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead". 

Synopsis (from the website).
100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn't end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn't far behind.
With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.

Joe kicked his disease and lost a BUNCH of weight!
So, I decided to juice, for a week. To restart my body and be healthier! My friend who recommended the movie is also doing it. At first I wasn't sure that I wanted to do it, I'm a super picky eater and I have an aversion to fruits that aren't apples or bananas. But then I looked it the mirror and told myself to stop being such a big baby, and do it! 

So today I bought what you see in the picture. And I'm going to do it! Starting tomorrow (Sunday), I will wake up, plug in my juicer and never look back!

I'm sure it'll make me blog more too, I'll share my recipes. And how everything tastes. Probably disgusting...
