I love apple juice. It's no secret really. So when my baby dr told me to "drink fruit juice- 2 servings a day" since I don't like fruit, well, no problem! I actually like all juice, which proves my theory that it is texture, not taste, that bothers me.
I got some apple juice at Wal-Mart, the "Great Value" store brand. You know, I like store brands. This was no exception. The juice was great. But I noticed something neat about this brand that I haven't seen on my regular brand... and that is, it is fortified with fiber. Each 8 ounce serving has 3g of fiber added to it (as well as vitamin C, this could be why I hardly ever really get colds)
I generally can drink a half gallon of apple juice in under a day (if it's all I drink that day) and can finish a gallon off in under 2 days. Now that it has some of the added benefits of eating real fruit (yay fiber!) it's going to be impossible for me to quit drinking it.
I also got half a gallon of cranberry-pomegranate juice, which I finished the first day I got it. I LOVE tart juice!
I'm going to have to get more, definitely!
Everyone is talking about making goals and plans for this August, and I have some too. Mine are pretty basic, and non-traditional. Here we go...
-Get insurance. We can finally sign up for Brian's insurance through his work. But we might also qualify for free insurance... more on that when I figure it out. I'm kind of skeptical, yet hopeful.
-Save money. I am putting away 10% of all money that comes in this household. Whether it's tips or pay checks or commissions for art, it's getting saved.
-Hang out with friends more. I really am enjoying hanging out with my friend Carissa and hope to see more of her! Maybe later today. We will see.
-Make an extreme effort to exercise. I'm starting my prenatal yoga dvd tomorrow, so I'll let you know how that goes.
In other, exciting news! I am going to be doing a giveaway- like, THIS WEEK!- and a product review, which will include video, my dog, and something to do with babies... you'll have to check it out!
Have a happy and safe week, friends!
PS... Tricia? Brian is totally working on your free commission. He's almost got it done, should be done by Thursday.
