Smoozie Weekend ~ Anyone Up For It?
Beginning today, I'm going for a 3-day Smoozie (green smoothie) weekend. I AM adding salads ~ just greens and fruit/veggies... nothing dehydrated.
So, that will be today ~ Friday ~ Saturday and Sunday.
This is NOT a fast! It is a feast of the good! Supporting ourselves with the best food possible. Building our immune system with nutrition, movement and rest.
Oh! did I say movement? Yep! Add some movement to this. Our bodies are designed to MOVE! So, get down on the floor; get up. Simple enough, yes? Down and up. Get out and walk! Do some rebounding! Dance! You don't need to go to a gym to get in some movement!
Remember, our lymphatic system does not work w/out movement. The only pumps are our arms and legs, so, let's get MOOOOVING!
Whatchu going to do?
Day 1 so far ~
Did a couple of enemas then took a nice long shower.
Heading down a bit to finish a smoozie from yesterday; then going to make some more. I usually use fresh-squeezed oj, water or nut milk for my base.
bbiab! Join me! :)
I'm with you, Revell!
Since I don't have a dehydrator, this is somewhat of a continuation of what I am doing...but no nuts,huh- except in the nut milk? All right. I can do it.
And in case you need something to help you get moving, turn up your speakers loud, stand up and listen to this...your body will BEG TO MOVE! LOL!
Wasn't sure about the nutmilk yet, gonna give it a try. Noooo, no nuts.

Enjoy your dancing! As soon as my beloved husband wakes up I am gonna BLAST THIS VIDEO and DANCE TO IT OVER AND OVER! Love it!
I'm in! No nuts would be a good thing for me for a few days - had lots of raw thanksgiving foods yesterday with nuts, nut crusts, nut chunks, nut flour - well, you get the picture . . .
Thanks for the inspiration!
Count me in. Smoozie and movement leads to a....smooth move!
To Your Health!

I am in too! Feeling gross, lethargic and in pain from yesterday (ate cooked veg at thanksgiving dinner)! Back to square one and really looking forward to just feeling better! Already told hubby smothies only for a few days, then I come see some lovely friend doing the same!
Today's will be a blueberry type smoothie, sounds good to me, but will be later in the day, still feeling too gross to eat anything yet. :-(
Movement will be a brisk walk in this cool CNY weather!
You're welcome! I know how you're feeling. Thanks for joining in!

You are not responsible for others reactions to you or assumptions about you. You are only responsible for your response to others.
That's why I started with enemas. I rarely do them yet, was feeling bloated and yucky. Feeling better now! Time to get down and have my first smoozie of the day! Thanks for jumping in on this! :)

So I make a motion, or move, that I get in on this. In fact yesterday I consumed 2 qts of green smoovie and walked, day before-walked and ran, with other exercises thrown in both days.
Excellent! Welcome! :)

On my second LARGE smoozie so far today. I'll probably do about 1/2 gallon along with some oj/water mix.
Got out a bit ago and swung a 20# kb; some 5# and 2# clubs; did some body movement and light ground engagement. Thinking I'll go out in a bit more and do some more. Maybe walk this evening.
