FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD...Oh My!'s been a long time since I've blogged! The past couple of years have been quite challenging, with 2 back surgeries, as well as some other health issues, so I'm afraid my blogging got pushed to the bottom of the priority list. :( so sad!

I'm sharing this trailer of the "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead," documentary because I was so inspired by it! If you'd like to watch the movie go HERE or you can watch it for free on Netflix and if you have amazon prime, you can also watch it for free there. As for Hulu, I'm not sure, you'll have to check it out and see.

I'm gearing up to start the juice fast and I'm committing to 30 days (insert gasp) OK... you heard it, so now I have to stick to it, right?

Hey....who knows....maybe I'll even do it 60 days like Joe in the movie. Meee not "eat" food....whaaaa? Yep....that's right folks I'm serious about this, so it's juice time! I can do it, I can do it, I can do it... Hmmm, do ya think chanting will help? lol Yeah probably not...I think this calls for some, big time prayin'!!!

What will I be juicing, you might ask? The answer is...lot's of spinach, kale, swiss chard, cabbage, broccoli, carrots, sweet potato, red bell peppers, tomatoes, beets, parsley, cucumber, celery, Fennel, basil, red onion, berries, grapes, apples, oranges, lemons, lime, radishes, ginger root and even a little jalapeno. It will be fun trying juice recipes! 

I know it may not be easy, but I'm sooo ready! Ready to get my blood pressure down to normal! Ready to get my colon working normally! Ready to get rid of the severe bloating in my abdomen! Ready to not have to take meds for allergies! Ready to shed 30 pounds! And finally......READY TO FEEL GREAT! I'm sooo ready!!!

If you're interested in learning more about improving your health, and guarding against or even reversing diseases with a plant based diet, check out this trailer of Forks Over Knives.

I watched this documentary several months ago and it literally changed my whole way of thinking about food! It had such an impact on me, that I've already changed my diet drastically and I know I will be eating mostly a vegetarian/vegan diet, when I'm finished with my juicing fast. You can watch Forks Over Knives for free on Netflix!

Also, here is a video by Dr. Fuhrman that is very informative. You may recognize Dr. Fuhrman from the Dr. Oz show, he's on there quite often and he has helped many people lose weight and get healthy, with a plant based diet.

I'm so anxious to begin my Juice fast and even more anxious to feel good! I did a 2 week juice fast several years ago and not only did I lose 15 pounds, but I felt better than I've ever felt before! With that particular fast, I didn't do any fruits, just veggies and I added barley green and several herbs to my juice, which gave me lots of energy. Energy? What's that? lol I'm looking forward to feeling energetic again!

I will try to blog about my progress along the way, probably at the end of each week, but I don't know if I'll be taking pics to share....well....I'll think about it, but can't promise anything. 

Hmmm....maybe I'm a little too vain! Ya think? lol Nawww that's not it...I'm just a private person...yeah that's it! Guess I'll have to work on that!

No but seriously, I really am a private person and a little vain too. :)


  1. Very interesting! I don't think I could do it, but more power to you. Can't wait to here how you do.

  2. Thanks Mari, it has been interesting for sure, but I'm surviving!today is day 5 and it was much easier plus I had some energy back By this afternoon. A few days have been hard but I'm hangin in there and it should be a breeze from here on out! I can't wait 30 days to see my progress!!!! It's gonna be exciting!!!!

  3. Craig watched forks over knives and was quite interested in what it was all about. Now I need to watch it. Then we will see where that leads us. :-))) Good job on your goals! You'll do great!!!!! Love ya!

  4. Thanks Emily, I'm sticking to it no matter what!!! Yes, you need to watch Forks Over Knives, it will have an impact on you...I know it sure did for me! And when I watched the Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead documentary, that's all it took...I knew what I had to do and now I'm on it!!! I'm very excited! Love you too!

  5. DJ, I'm so exited for you as I sit hear and feel guilty eating a cookie...uhh... but I did replace most the butter with avocado in the recipe (:

    These video clips were very encouraging! Some weeks I get sorta tired of the time that goes into preparing unprocessed and plant based meals and this is one of those weeks. I have renewed energy to go make a healthy dinner now!

  6. Im much motivated now. Wonderful video.
