Day 17 Juicing

Monday, March 25, 2013

Scale was down .4 for a total of 17.2 lbs!

Today was stressful. I found out early in the day that one of my co-workers passed away. I was very saddened. He had a rough situation that spiraled out of control and he didn't take care of his body. Many tried to help... but as we see it didn't help. Lesson learned: No one can help you unless you help yourself.

What made this harder was, that I had no food to run to. Usually when loss is involved I run to soft, spongy sweet things. Paleo had curbed that a lot. But juicing? I had no choice but to stick to my juices. I had a big cup of warm veggie broth followed by a hot herbal tea. The Zola coconut water is my splurge, and I drank it thanking my self for making me first in my life and making the changes that I need to be the best I can be.
I know now that I am worth it.

    Thank you Rising!
Juicing isn't for everyone, and for the ones that it is - it can still be a struggle. I consider myself lucky that it is working for me with minor issues. Once I hit day 5 things became easier and I am learning what works and what doesn't.
It's a wonderful learning experience.

    Sorry that you lost your coworker. A lot of people struggle with depression & bad habits and the consequences can be tragic.

I am not one for the juicing lifestyle but I think it's great that you are sticking to something that is right for you and is improving your health and your life. I know it was really difficult to stick to but those sweet spongy items wouldn't have solved the issues anyway.

Keep doing what's right for you. :)

    Thank you Madly,
Yes- it comes out to a little bit over 1 lb per day so far.

    Juicing sounds like it's really working out for you -- have you lost 17 lbs in less than three weeks of juicing?!
