Day 1 Juicing - Reboot Your Life

Monday, December 31, 2012

Day 1

My husband and I watched the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead (
. We were inspired by their success at losing weight and keeping it off by rebooting their system through juicing. We went out and bought a juicer at Costco yesterday and more fruits and veggies than I have ever had in the house at one time. For the next 30 days, I am going to juice every day. My family thinks I'm crazy, but that is normal so that is fine by me.

This morning we started with a Mean Green Juice. It has 2 apples, 1" ginger, 1/2 lemon, 6 kale leaves, 1 cucumber, and 4 stalks of celery. I must say I feel awesome after drinking it. I can think more clearly, and I have a ton of energy. I feel great!

On a side note, our washing machine broke one week ago. The GE repairman came today to look at it. Apparently, the latch for the locking door is broken so the part was ordered today and will not be here for another week. As much as I do not want to, I am off to the laundromat to do a few loads of laundry.

The next semester of school starts next week. I need to figure out how I am going to store juice to drink at school. I might order a couple more hydroflasks. I love hydroflask. I put ice in the container, and the ice is still there 24 hours later. I first bought one at the Portland Saturday market, and I didn't believe the guy selling them. I figured what the heck I will give it a try so I bought one. Now, I do not leave the house without it. I love my hydroflask ( It also doesn't taste like metal or sweat water all over the table during class, and I do not have to find ice on campus only a water fountain to refill the bottle. Okay, now I'm sounding like a sales person for hydroflask. Haha. I'm not. I just love it!

    Hi Sandycrane

    The hydroflask has definitely helped me to drink a lot more water. I love icy cold water. It was frustrating that with a normal water bottle it would sweat all over the table, and my ice wouldn't last through the first class. Then, I had to waste time going on a search for ice when I could have been in the library studying before my next class. I'm pretty sure the thing could double as a self defense weapon too. Haha. It's heavy-duty. It has fallen off my bicycle on concrete while riding before, and it didn't dent or scratch.

    My kids are in college, maybe they would like one of those hydroflasks. I already have a boat load of water bottles. I think I would like to try some juicing, but just once in awhile, not for a year. Good luck with your juicing, it helps that both you and your husband are doing it together.
