From Pure Exhaustion to a Feeling of Momentum… Thanks to Nutritionist Corinne Bush at the Far Hills Pharmacy in Far Hills (actually Bedminster), New Jersey

Over on  my Roxiticus Desperate Housewives blog, I’ve decided to chronicle my latest 90-day-plan to a lifetime of diet and fitness (I’m actually about two weeks in with my 43rd birthday approaching as a milestone in October).  While my most loyal readers can say they’ve heard this song and dance before when I try to commit (again and again) to a healthier lifestyle, I haven’t said a lot here about the constant fatigue I’ve been battling for several months, mostly because I like to serve up answers instead of questions and I’m still in the midst of working it out… with a little help from nutritionist Corinne Bush at the Far Hills Pharmacy. However, as I was drinking my daily dose of pond scum in the name of Green Vibrance, I snapped a photo to share with all of you — one of those “you have to see it to believe it.” Before adding the little packet of Green Vibrance 9.0, that was a bright red glass of V8… now green black as the top of the type pond I wouldn’t choose for swimming. When Dr. Glenn Davis of Chester Medical Associates couldn’t find any reason for my fatigue in his analysis of my blood work, he referred me to nutritionist Corinne Bush, with Rex as an enthusiastic supporter who credits her with saving his life two years ago. One of the questions she asked me was to name my favorite five vegetables… “corn, potatoes, tomatoes, string beans, carrots.” She gave me the last three just so I’d have something to start from, but noted that while I may not be quite as anti-vegetable as my daughters, I don’t seem to get a lot of green in my diet.

The ingredients read like something a spammer might leave behind on the comments section of my blog: spirulina, alfalfa, barley, oat, wheat grass juice powder, hydrilla verticillata, alfalfa sprout powder, Kamut grass juice powder, pharmaceutical grade soft cell Chlorella, parsley and beet juice powder, freeze dried Zucchini powder, carrot root powder, freeze dried green bean powder, broccoli sprout powder and freeze dried spinach powder for nutrient dense health support; soy lecithn poder, Vitamin E, and Policosanol for for cell membrane and nerve support; larch arabinogalactan, stablized brown rice bran, whole apple powder and milled flaxseed representing the high fiber foods and probiotics… the list goes on and on.  Aunt Veg and Uncle Quiet were just here for their annual visit, and militant vegan Aunt Veg gave it her seal of approval, though I’m sure she wishes I would join her for a big bowl of tofu, mushrooms and broccoli instead.

I’ve been at it for a bit more than two weeks, and have rarely missed my 3:30pm dose of Green Vibrance, even the night Rex and I went out drinking with our new colleagues from the Firm.  So far, I’ve had my ups and downs, which don’t necessarily correspond with a good night’s sleep/bad night’s sleep or good day of nutrition/bad cheating fast food binge.  I’m discovering that my level of energy can be boosted by better eating, but there’s nothing like a signed engagement agreement from a brand new client to take me to the top.  There are many more elements to the customized nutrition plan Corinne worked up for me, and I’ll be sharing them here and over on Roxiticus Desperate Housewives as I go along.  I’ve still got the feeling of momentum that comes with a new health, diet and fitness program… let’s hope by sharing it with you I can keep it up.

In the meantime, I give you the best nutritionist that Rex and I can recommend:  Corinne Bush at the Far Hills Pharmacy, 405 Main Street (Route 202) in Bedminster, NJ.  Phone (908) 234-1101.  Don’t forget to tell her Roxy sent you.
