Getting Healthy for All

There are only 2 Freebie bracelets left!

I was thinking about my post yesterday and I realized I don't want to exclude anyone. Instead of a 30-Day Infertility Get Healthy Challenge--Let's just call it a 30-Day Get Healthy Challenge. Ok? Ok :) All are welcome to participate.

Fergie asked if we can take a break on Thanksgiving day. I'm thinking yes. My goal is to feel better, healthier. Right now I feel like the bubbleman oompa-loompa. I want the energy everyone is talking about that comes from putting healthy foods into your body. I want to drink that green shit and feel like a new person! I definitely want to lose some of the poundage that is courtesy of infertility depression, but more important--I want to feel better. So do what you need to do in order to feel better during this challenge. If that includes Thanksgiving dinner--go for it! After all, if it makes you feel like shit to watch everyone else chomping down on "collard greens and corn bread, some candied yams, a little potato salad, fried chicken, peach cobbler and a few slices of ham" (anyone want to guess where that movie line is from?) then you're not feeling better :) Anyone else have thoughts on this?

First off, what is that green crap?

Second, when are you starting your 30 days?

Third, stuffing rocks!

Jendeis--you're cracking me up!!

1. The green crap is a healthy drink pic I stole off the internets :)
2. I'm starting on Monday, November 12th.
3. I agree, stuffing does indeed rock. Especially when I fry cornbread and then crumble it into the mix with...shit, this is gonna be tough!

I'm actually going to borrow a juicer so I can make my own green crap...I mean...drinks. I really hope I don't gag :) Dr. Oz did one yesterday that sounded pretty good ingredient-wise, so I'm going to post the recipe tomorrow with some others.

Sounds like a plan. Okay please let us know how that green crap really taste. Cause I'm gonna try and get healthy, but I'm not tasting that stuff until somebody I know makes it at home and gives me the real scoop.

I think it is awesome you want to get healthy! I eat the crappiest stuff but recently I've tried to limit the crap intake and I can notice a change in my energy level.

I don't think I can do the green gook but let me know how it is. I might decide to be adventurous ;)

Good luck - I'll be thinking of you!

I'm impressed that you're brave enough to try that green goo. More power to you, though! I'll be cheering for you.

Right on! Feeling good and feeling healthy is the goal, and that quite likely means different things for different people. I know exactly what you mean about the infertility depression induced weight gain. I've gained 20 pounds in the past 18 months. I think the worst thing about it is that I feel as though it's one more thing in my life that I lost control over. So, I'm in this with you. GO TEAM!!!
