I Feel Good!

I went a little over-board at the vitamin store. That tall yellow bottle - that's the lemonade diet/detox concentrate. It's made from lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. You're supposed to have two tablespoons in 8 ounces of water eight times a day for four days. It took me three glasses to realize it tastes like shit. I figured it would hurt more coming back out then going in so I stopped.

Those two big canisters are a super food powder in garden berry flavor. It has something like 19 servings of fruits and vegetables. I thought it would be a good supplement since I don't always eat so well during the week. The powder smells a bit like a barnyard. The instructions say mix one scoop in 8 ounces of your favorite beverage. Since I wasn't' sure how garden berry would go with Sam Adams Oktoberfest, I used water instead. I didn't throw up (yet) so I guess I will try to have one glass every day.

The other things are vitamins, fish oil (love those fish burps), coQ-10, and red yeast rice for cholesterol. I'll report back with my findings as to how energetic these products make me feel. That is if I'm not out climbing a mountain or running a marathon. Or, more likely, taking a nap.

Oh geeeez! I was gagging as you were describing all of your supplements! lol I try to eat lots of vegetables as they have valuable enzymes besides vitamins...Right now I am making homemade chicken tortilla soup right now, lots of stuff in it that burns coming out ...you should come have some!

You're funny CJ! Try to stick with it -- it takes about 30 or more days to change our habits.

I am a supplement junkie -- if I am not making day glow pee something is terribly wrong!

Beer is a fine chaser just take care of yourself.

So far the only things I have really stuck with are the vitamins and the fish oil. I had a few doses of the super food powder. I need to get back to that this weekend.

I'm need to take Janet's words of wisdom regarding the 30 days to break old habits before I give up.

Hey Butch Boo! Thank you for stopping by. No more rattling since I decided to leave the lemonade mixture in the way back of the fride.
