veg-power-smoothieI wrote yesterday about how the awesome juicing documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is finally getting it’s official UK premierand that you can soon watch it for free on Channel 5 (A special one hour version of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead will be shown on Wednesday, July 10th at 8:00 pm and the movie will be played in full on the following Saturday afternoon).

I have no doubt that after seeing Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and witnessing the positive impact juicing can have on your health that many people will be inspired to try juicing themselves. With this in mind I wanted to make you aware of The Big Summer Juice Detox. Based on Jason Vale’s best selling book, 7lbs in 7 days, the Big Summer Juice Detox is a global event starting on 13 July.

One of my favourite juices on this 7 day plan in the Turbo Express and it is so easy to make. Simply juice the pineapple, celery, cucumber, spinach, lime and apples, place the ripe avocado flesh in the blender / smoothie maker along with the juice and blend until smooth. When making this I suggest sandwiching the spinach between the 2 apples as this will help get the maximum juice.

Cystic Fibrosis A Race We Must Win2013 Miles in 2013!

This year I am trying to complete 2013 miles self-powered miles. It is has been 10 years since my cousin’s son Adam lost his fight with Cystic Fibrosis. Adam was just 18 years old when when he lost his lifelong battle with CF, the UK’s most common life-threatening inherited disease. Despite spending large parts of his short life in hospital Adam never once complained, not even of a headache and was determined to make the most of everyday.

My 2013 miles in 2013 challenge is in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust as I have been surprised since I started fundraising for the CF Trust just how many people are unaware of this disease and so I hope my efforts will not just raise money, but also awareness of the UK’s most most common life-threatening inherited disease.

The first person to commit to sponsoring my 2013 mile challenge has committed to 1p per mile (£20.13 in total) and this got me thinking. I am hoping that as many as possible of those reading this will commit to do the same and the best thing is, if each person does this on a “pay as you go” type approach all you will need to part with is approx £2 just after each pay day. In January I completed 205.9 miles, in February I completed a further 200.9 miles, in March I completed 185.7 miles, in April I completed 192.1 miles, in May I completed 168 miles and in June I completed 145 miles. If you can please spare £10.98 to help the Cystic Fibrosis Trust it will be greatly appreciated.

2013 Miles in 2013 – The rules

The rules for my 2013 miles in 2013 challenge are quite simple:

  1. All miles must be completely self powered (no motors, sails, etc)
  2. I must be able to evidence all miles, either via GPS or with a picture of any static gym equipment

To complete my 2013 miles I will be running, cycling, rowing and who knows, I might even try a few other self powered methods along the way.
