Day 2 of my “Action Plan!”

I always feel so invigorated when I quit drinking.  I feel so full of life and energy… I don’t know why I have always returned to my old ways of daily drinking and excessive drinking at times.  I have gotten more done today than I  usually do in 5 days!

Now I need to start planning a healthy menu.  We have been eating delicious Thanksgiving and birthday leftovers for over a week now!  I can’t let the food go to waste, but I am ready for some fresh fruits and veggies and lean meats.  I plan to start juicing and blending raw again within the next week or so and to really get focused on the food and workout.

Tonight I started some bone broth using the leftover turkey bones.  It is very simple.  Here is what you do:

Remove the skin and fat from the turkey carcass.  Then place it in a large crock pot with one carrot, celery and onion.  Add some bay leaves and salt and pepper and cover with water.  Cook it on low for 10-20 hours.  When finished, cool and strain it into containers.  This is bone broth… excellent for colds and building a healthy body.  Drink a couple of cups hot daily.  Yummmmm!  Add some salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!  Freeze any extra and use it for soups and other recipes that call for broth.

Looking forward to continuing the journey and getting a workout in tomorrow.  Cheers to loving my new life!  If you are loving your new life, please share your thoughts and experiences!

I just turned 50 and am ready to make 2020 the year of major change for myself and my family! I am a realtor, an artist and a fitness lover. I am ready to tackle some of those difficult things in life that seem to get put off and put off and see where this new road of focus and intention takes me.
