A Video Diary
OK, I am delving more into the world of shoddy video shot on my iPhone and I thought a good thing to start doing would be to keep a video diary of sorts. The loose theme of the videos will be a series of monthly challenges to which I will subject myself (and anyone else who wants to join in.)
I figure that the fairly public accountability will force me to take this seriously. Each challenge will be designed to bring about some kind of self-improvement, to enable me and you, my wonderful readers to live out the CultureMutt tagline of savvy, global do-gooding.
Challenge #1 – Juice to Lose Weight
The first monthly challenge is basically about being healthy and losing weight so I don’t look like my sister’s chubby brother in all the pictures of her wedding which is coming up in England in just over three weeks. Here’s a clip with me explaining things a little further….
Jammie and I went shopping and got all of the items above for about $40. I borrowed the juicer so no cost there…
Luckily, it was super easy to use. Here’s a quick clip on the basic mechanics…
How does the juice taste? Well, let’s find out…
OK, so the juicer recipes will need a lot of fine-tuning. For now, I am happy that this whole thing is not exhausting me. I feel really alert… one of the early benefits of juicing I guess.
The video updates for this challenge will be posted as often as possible with a minimum of three times a week. Each post will include at least one video and once a week I’ll have a progress (or lack thereof) pic with some stats like the below:
