Juicing

Alright…so what’s the deal? Starting over…even with this kitchen nightmare

I was trying to juice off of this cart. I think it was feasible. It was the washing that was difficult because of the small sink. I guess I could try the bathtube. Maybe.

Ok….I truly do feel Sick, Fat, and Nearly Dead! I got on the scale yesterday at 175! I have gained 5 lbs since summer started and this was to be the summer of health.

I was also going to blog about my kitchen renovation…but we haven’ got past the floor. I wanted a concrete floor…it was beautiful. The contractor had it perfect!!! And then the top coat clouded. 2 or 3 overlays later, we still are not done. (But maybe Monday…and I’ll post the kitchen reno later).

I realize it got to me. In the beginning, my excuse was waiting around to let them in…over the past 5 weeks…it’s changed to wanting to see the progress.

Regardless, I should of handled the growing stress better with good food and exercise…and I didn’t.

Bad form.

So, thank God…today is the first day of the rest of my life. I start right now.
I will drink my lemon water, hit the gym, and start juicing.

I am drinking pre made juices, because I haven’t had a kitchen and making juices in my bathroom or on the patio just wasn’t working.

But it did give me appreciation for when Joe Cross juiced in the bad of his car.

Wish me luck. This time, like I said in APRIL (ugh) , I am totally changing my diet.

I miss the fresh juice. Let me work through the ones I have purchased and then I’ll try again.

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. 🙂

Fight Easter chocolate with….

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

I may not juice 100% of the time…

I am not the perfect juicer! My house is filled with carnivores who are celebrating Easter with chocolate and candy. Last night and today (leftovers) they had pizza! And did I mention the cannoli covered with chocolate in the refrig!!!!

So, I may not always just juice. But, I have been eating almonds daily to satisfy the crunch and pop corn a few nights a week when I need that “snack’. I think I average 5 full juicing out of 7!

Today I tried, just one bite of each – ok 2 bites of the bunny. They were small.

I decided the cannoli was much too sweet and the pizza was just ok. My almonds tasted better. I’m not sure if my mind is finally hungering after what my body really needs for fuel.

So, I may not juice 100% – but I feel really good about how I am learning about self control and challenging the way I ate in the past

Getting ready for the work week! Organizing my juices.

20140406-180156.jpg

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!!!
