What I have acheived so far

Tuesday, July 08, 2008

I have been drinking 8 glasses of water a day, stopped drinking pop, and have been walking 10,000 steps five days a week. Created a cookbook with spark receipes. Going to farmer's market tomorrow to get fresh vegetables for new receipes. Then I'll get the rest of what I need at Wal-mart. I have been drinking juice but didn't think about the sugar in it until someone of spark mentioned it to me. So, I am going to watch that now. Getting sugar free Kool-aid. Working in my vegetable garden. I have 4 zucchini plants, blue lake green beans and 6 tomato plants. They are better boy and celebrity. The celebrity tomatoes are suppose to be like Beef Stake.

    You are a fantabulous inspiration, and I needed some today! I know a little bit about fruit juice, and more than one diet doctor recommends Not drinking them, bec. they raise the blood sugar so drastically without the fiber to slow it down! Also fattening.
    ...and its better to drink the diet soda and drinks, very moderately....cause they are filled with chemicals - I won't go into detail about the research, at least not Now...but take my word, they're not good for you! Better to have herbal tea, and regular water with lemon juice squeezed into it!
    Best of luck,
    Ellen (and wish me luck too - in sticking to my plan better than I have so far)

    Meant to say that sometimes I'll have 2-4 oz of juice to flavor my 6 glasses of water (I use a 6 glass sized pomegranate juice jug) and sometimes use club soda with it (spritzer) or a mix of club and plain water. Juices seem very strong to me, now. That gives a nice flavor without too much carbonate or sugar :) :)

    Is it POSSIBLE to have too many zucchini plants ????

    I just love the stuff. I'm planning on finding some used hanging flower pots and planting yellow squash and zucchinis in them... kind of like the flower pots you see along streets, but with big yellow flowers and lots of greens... up where deer can't get to them :)

    I am subscribing to your blog. this was a very good positive one and I enjoyed reading it.

    Fruits are better for you than juices. I don't allow any juices at all n my diet but that is because of the diabetes. Since you don't ahve it you might be able to have juice.

    Keep up the good work! You have made some great strides! emoticon
    I, too, am trying to do the 10,000 steps a day. The only days I excuse myself are if I ride my bike (10 miles roundtrip) to work. Your veggie garden sounds marvelous! emoticon

    I like your new blog. Now I am hungry for some veggies emoticon
    I don't drink juice either due to the high calories. Try Crystal Light it's sugar free and very low calories. Also when you go to Walmart check out the drink isle.......they have a large assortment of sugar free/low calorie drinks to chose from.
    Keep up with your healthy life style.
