Juicing

Back to day 1 – next 15 pounds and true changes in diet

Today was the end of my first 30 day juicing journey. I can’t say I went through a true juice fast because I ate almonds most days.

(I am about this weight. I came back from England weighing 176 and I am 174.)
I have been reading through my favourite tumblrs and @juicingjen had a good post about the stages of healing your body goes through when you take part in a true juice fast.

I realize that I want my body to heal – especially my digestive system – more that the weight loss. I have low thyroid and my system has been sluggish for years. Cleaning out and healing should be a main goal. Even though I only ate a few nuts, my digestive system still had to work. So although I have lost weight, I still haven’t given my system a break.

So tomorrow is day 1 of a true juice fast. I am going to take it day by day because those nuts kept me from going nuts. 🙂

Day 28…I will weigh myself tomorrow. There are moments I know I am changing the way I eat …and other moments that it just feels hard.

My family is waiting. I can’t in good conscience go green and have them eating all this junk. I have my husband and daughter trying a few juices every so many days, and my youngest watching his every drink worried I am slipping something in! lol

Getting ready for the work week! Organizing my juices.

I went and purchased 4 more GNC drink containers. The glass Bell jars don’t work well in my classroom. I spilt a little beet juice on my shirt Friday and knew I needed a container with a smaller mouth.

I also found the recycled bottles I had at home hard to clean. The GNC drink containers worked great and clean so easily.

It was worth the investment and right now they are buy 2 get 1 free!!!
