I've been dying to blog about my New Year's Resolution, but I didn't want to jinx myself. Yesterday marked one week; no ice cream, no desserts. Sayonara sugar! It's my biggest weakness turned-hobby last year during my pregnancy. Steve and I became best friends and at $6.99 per pint, it's a relationship I'm happy to see go. How does the CAN CAN girl kick her bad habit? To be honest, I'm not one to go cold-turkey and while I've replaced Steve with Will (power), I'm not swearing off ice cream or sugary desserts for life. That my friends is bound to backfire and life is too short not to indulge - once in awhile.
Today's workout: 25 minutes on the treadmill. Today's news: McDonald's spicy wings hit Chicago (after debuting in Atlanta last year) and worse flu season - delivered in that order. My exercise high turns off. My concern and the monologue in my head take over. More bad news for our nation. I wish I could turn off the TV overhead.
Raise your hand if you've eaten or sipped on kale this week? Once a day? Twice a day? Post-holidays, my bet is most have upped their intake of greens this week. Good for you! See ya later sugar; 'tis time for more of Nature's candies! With New Year's resolutions abound, kale is front page news in just about every health and fitness magazine and wellness blog I've read. And you know what, I hope it stays there. Media has a powerful way with words. They create a buzz and the public listens. And this time, I hope you're listening loud and clear. Kale is worth the hype!
Our kitchen is quiet, our juicers are off and in peace, I reflect on what an amazing year it has been! CAN CAN's first year of operation has been such a joy! We've touched so many lives by introducing hundreds to juicing and the power of short, seasonal cleansing. Fortunate to love what I do and fortunate for the clients who appreciate our work, I'm thankful as we wrap up the year early to take time to spend with our families for the holidays.
To our dear friends, families and CAN CAN'er, thank you for an amazing 2013! Truly, we're blessed with the best clients and believers in what we do; the power of seasonal cleansing has a way of positively improving our bodies and minds. What a gift, just ask our clients! We've enjoyed sharing our love of taking 18 pounds of raw, organic, whole food ingredients and making it into tasty juices, nut milks, herbal teas, and soups to create an experience quite unique and magical.
