I love the New Year Season. I do believe it’s my favorite time of the year! It beats out Christmas, Valentine’s Day and my birthday. I get soooo excited that i just want to shout (and often do) “Happy New Year!!!!” to everyone I see. It’s not just a new year but it’s a new season; a chance to reflect and then gain a different perspective on things from your past. It’s a time for prayers, fasting and consecration. All with the intention of hearing from the Almighty about what He has plan for you! What anticipation!!
I’m expecting great things this year. I’ve built up my immune system and thrown my breasts away! I’m stretching myself with some new goals: sew 1 outfit per month, write love notes to my kids, learn to write (so that I can publish a book) and a few others. But I’m also keeping some old goals from last year that I didn’t accomplish: run a marathon, memorize 1 scripture per week, don’t yell when frustrated w/the kids.
My biggest goal is to lose 20lbs by March 1. This is the first time in my entire life that I’ve had to try to lose weight. So far I’ve lost 3. 3 lbs in 2 weeks, that’s not too bad.
But I ovulated last night and got on the scale this morning and I’ve gained 4 lbs!!!
Gotta keep hope alive!
I also want this year to be all about celebrating life! A cancer-free wonderful life! A healthy, happy, wholistic life! I plan to stock up on all sorts of natural goodies and appliances and just love me with wholesome goodness!
A powerful juicer is a MUST HAVE for anyone trying to live a healthy lifestyle. I’ve burned out 2 so far and just need to bite the bullet and get an expensive one (as opposed to the off the shelf from WalMart kind). I’m considering a Vitamix Blender. But it’s a bit expensive. When I was at WholeFoods the lady in charge of produce told me that all I need is an industrial blender and one of the best was the Blendtec Blender. It’s what they use at their store!!
She’s right! For about $150 cheaper than a Vitamix Blender it does the same thing. The Blendtec Blender is a powerful tool to have when you want to eat raw soups, make green smoothies, juice your veggies, make your own salad dressings, or process raw nuts.
I decided on it because is smaller, makes less noise, and frankly, with 4 colors to chose from it looks way better than a Vitamix. My concern: it has a 3 yr warranty where Vitamix has a 7yr. But I have friends who use both and they both rave over the smooth consistency.
I like the Vitamix name and still want one but I know it’s because I’m influenced by the sales demonstration that I just saw at WholeFoods. They are so freaking inspirational!! It makes you want to run out and sell one of the children and get one right away.
But I don’t’ think I could get $500 for one of these jokers…
Happy new year!!!
What’s your experience with the best blender?
