Fitness Friday: Juicing and Vegetarian…Maybe

This weekend we got to hang out with some of my favorite people, my two sisters-in-law. They are both significantly healthier than I am, especially A who is a Marine. Anyway, as always happens when we’re around them, we started talking about health and fitness. A is worried about me…something about wanting me to live a long time or something…so she has been trying to nudge me gently in the direction of better health. Lately I’ve been doing research on different ways to lose weight and get healthy, including bariatric surgery. But, I think I’m going to put that option on hold, but knowing it’s always an option. Anyway, like everyone else in the world, I’ve been hearing a lot of my friends talk about juicing. A and her husband drink a lot of juice and swear by it. My other sister-in-law, J, did a juice kick when she was trying to lose a few pounds for her sister’s wedding.

So, we talked about juice a lot this weekend. A lot. And then, we watched Forks Over Knives and Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I don’t know if I’m fully on board with becoming a vegetarian or even vegan, but these movies do a pretty good job of convincing. William and I are talking about the options and the strategy.

Are you vegetarian? Do you juice? I would love to hear your tips!
