Being the Change

My motto is: "Be the change you wish to see in the world" by Gandhi.
There is so much wonderful in this world I want to keep working until all of it is beautiful and wonderful.

First I must continue to work on myself. Getting healthy, Getting Greener in all actions and being Positive in all areas. All this to be an inspiration to others around me and make everywhere in this world a wonderful and healthy place in which to be.

I will be 53 this year and emotionally I totter between feeling like I am in my twenty's with so much I want to accomplish and do to 60's with all the decisions of growing older brings.
Physically I look younger most people think I am 10 years younger.I attribute this to being a little plump- my wrinkles don't show as bad and never had the stress of a marriage. I do however do not physically feel like I am in my 50's either- the best of it all.

I am blessed I have a wonderful daughter and granddaughter. My mother is still here and is facing multiple challenges of getting older. I have a fantastic Aunt. all of which I stay in contact and see on a regular basis.

Hello from the Countdown to Spring team! Can you believe that Spring is almost here and our challenge will be ending? I just want to encourage you to keep pushing yourself to do your best each day. Only YOU can make your goals and dreams a reality, so be sure to work hard for them. You don't need me to remind you that you're worth the effort, do you? Well, in case you do, consider this to be your reminder!
Hugs,
Pixie

Don’t just pray about it, go out there and take action; participate in the answering of your own prayer.
If you want change, get out there and live it."

Good morning from the Countdown to Spring team! I hope you are having a healthy, fabulous week so far. Can you believe that there is less than a week until the first day of Spring? (It sure doesn't feel like it in my neck of the woods, though!) Let's make the most of these final days of the challenge...and then keep that momentum going! We can accomplish a lot if we just commit to doing our best one day at a time. We are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal.
And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach.
But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.
....It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"
-Lysa TerKeurst

Tips

My grocery store orders fresh turmeric on request for me. To juice wheat grass you need a Sampson or Omega, Norwalk, Angel juicer. They are able to press the juice from it. A breville cannot extract wheat grass or green juices as well. There are also specialty wheat grass juicers available. If you have not consumed wheat grass juice or juices, start with a small amount of juice as it will make you go. Build up your tolerance.

Directions
Use the harder vegetables to feed the greens through the juicer. I order wheat grass seed from the Optimum Health Institute in San Diego Ca. They test theirs for freshness. The Fenugreek seed I order for sprouting from the Sprout People. To vary the flavor add large quantities of herbs. I have used dill, peppermint, rosemary, basil, oregano, lemon grass etc. Be generous to hide the green flavor. The MCT oil is a brain food and the Lecithin. The small amount of oil adds in the turmeric and other ingredients being absorbed better. It lends a creamy flavor to the juice.

Serving Size: Makes 2 quarts.

Number of Servings: 1

"Quit now and keep quitting.
If you are still wondering whether to quit, know that if you quit today, you will quit tomorrow.
Vince Lombardi said, once you learn to quit, it will become a habit.
Once we quit, our mind becomes programmed & will be ready to shut down any time it faces difficulty.
So let's fight now & keep fighting our way to victory!!!
Y'all with me?"
