Beet Juice with Jalapeño = Yuck

Day 2

Juicing was a lot more difficult today. I think a lot of it is psychological though, because I feel like I should be eating more. I do not feel hungry though, which is odd. I also haven't had any cravings, which is extremely odd for me. Normally, every day around 3-4pm I have horrible cravings for chocolate.

One of the juice recipes I tried today was a lousy mess. It had 3 beets, 1 jalapeño, 1 lime, 1-1/2 cups of spinach, and 12 red radishes. I couldn't drink it, because it was entirely too spicy. My husband drank all of his though. I decided to eat 1/2 green pepper, some grape tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, blueberries, and blackberries instead. I was tempted to dip the veggies in something, but I decided against it.

I have noticed that this experience is teaching me to love the taste of veggies. I usually love veggies way more than my husband anyways and have only met one I do not like (celery). This is sad, but normally I am just too lazy to cut them up. I guess in the past it has been easier just to go through a drive-thru.

I am up way too late. We have to get up early tomorrow to go to the school so my husband can speak to an advisor. My plan is to get up before we leave to run on the elliptical. It is easier for me to workout in the morning, because I am too tired to care that I'm tired. :)

Alright, I'm off. Good night!

    Congrats on giving the Reboot a try! I did a 15 reboot, after watching F, S, and ND and it made a huge impression on me. I found that some of the juices weren't that tasty, but worked around that by adding an extra apple or pear or something sweet to offset it.

    Keep it up! I think you'll be pleased with the results.

    Maybe next time you can remove the seeds from the jalapeno before juicing - the seeds and membrane are where most of the heat are located. Remove that and you get the flavor of the pepper without the burn :0)

    It's great to hear that you are making it through the day without cravings! I have found the same thing. It's amazing how much of our "hunger" is habit! How was your workout this morning?

    Keep going! emoticon
