Getting Juiced & A Sugar Free Update

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

I finally did something I have been debating on for awhile now...

I BOUGHT A JUICER!!! emoticon

I am super, duper excited! I finished the juicing chapter in my Crazy Sexy Diet book and after some puppy dog eyes to BF and a look at the ol' finances (oh and all the oh-so-fun research) I settled on a modestly priced Breville juicer. It's going to be at least a week before it gets here but as I impatiently wait I will do more research on some yummy juice recipes. Anyone have any they want to share?

The challenge is going fantastic!! It is amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it. Have I slipped a few times? Yes. I am human and going cold turkey is next to impossible. I have decided that if I want something then I am going to give in. Me depriving myself has only made me binge in the past so allowing myself a small treat is not going to kill me.

I am on my second week and am definitely going through withdrawls. I have been cranky, fighting migraines, and OMG the acne! I've never struggled like this before. Seriously...it's awful. BUT I know this is just my way of detoxing all that blah out of me so I am pushing along and focusing on the prize: a vibrant, healthier ME!

    Isn't it amazing what our bodies put up with for so long, then when we start to do something nice for them, they appear to rebel at first?

    It really makes you realize what needs to come out before you can get healthier.

    Great job! Persevere! You pushed through with the caffeine, and you can do this, too!
