Day 6

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Well, as my first week with Juicing, it's not the 'perfect' week. Especially since it is 'that time of month'.. But this has been one of the easiest TOM's that I've had in years, and I think it has to do with the nutrition that I've been getting from the nutri-blasts'. So that alone, is pretty sweet!

emoticon The first few days I was eating meals, and drinking small amounts of the nutri-juice with each meal, to aid in digestion. But for about 3 days now, I've been using the fruit/veggie juices as meal replacements, with eating 1 egg & juice for breakfast, and a small portion of meat/fish, with juice for dinner. (not in the

emoticon I'm not expecting to lose a lot this week, since I rarely ever lose weight during my period. But I feel sooooo much better, that I'm going to stick with it for sure. I'm going to add walking on Monday. 15-30 min each morning, Mon-Fri. (I think next week is my 'true official 1st week'. This week is sort of like my 'pre-trial'. start slowly.)
emoticon Will I want to go to a buffet and eat a big dinner like my husband & I enjoy doing... of course I will, but I won't do it because I'm committed to this for at least 90 days. 3 months...that's it! It will be over before I even realize it. Of course my program won't end, but I'm committed to the juice fast for 3 months.

emoticon I'm thinking with such a clear mind right now, and loving it. I'm understanding now that proper nutrition has a lot to do with the way the mind thinks. I feel like a fog has been lifted off my head.

emoticon emoticon emoticon My husband is my worst sabotage...we both are. For some reason when he's doing really good, I'll want to eat poorly, which causes him to crash & burn, and when I'm doing really good, he does the same to me.. Why do we do this? I'm just glad I've realized it. I'm sure he hasn't. But if I bring it up, he'll deny it and get mad. I haven't even been telling him I'm doing this. I've never been one to make 'family style meals'. He cooks for himself, and I cook for myself & our toddler. So he doesn't really know what I'm doing meal wise. We have a great marriage, don't get me wrong. When we are both at our goal weight, and our daughter is a little older, we'll start having family meals.

But he knows I am watching my diet, he just doesn't know to the extreme I'm doing it. And just last Saturday, we went to Pikes Place (we live in Seattle), and what does he do???..buys donuts. He's been very very strict on his diet lately, but as soon as he knows I'm doing well, he wants to go off track. I told him I'm not eating any, and I haven't. I fed them all to our daughter... (the ones that he didn't eat) After he ate them, he felt bad and started beating himself up about it. But then he goes to Costco the next day, and calls me to ask if I want him to bring home their BBQ is soooo good!... but I said "NO".

emoticon I'm not going to let him sabotage me this time...I'm done with it. I was a great healthy weight when I met him. He loved to eat, and eat we did! He kept telling me he was going to get me bigger because he liked big women, and I would just laugh and say "nope".. 14 years later and I am 123 pounds heavier. With most of it gained in the first 2 years we were together... WOW!

emoticon Trust me, he never meant for me to get this large. And he is encouraging about me losing it. But we both subconsciously sabotage each other... and now it's time to STOP.

I CAN DO THIS! I want to sit on the floor & play with my daughter, comfortably. I want to sit in a chair & cross my legs again. I want to go to the beach in a bathing suit and get a tan. I want to go into any store and buy normal size clothes...

It's gonna happen! emoticon

    June, you are doing great! I have a question for you - I know that you said that you have no cravings but do you feel energized and are you hungry? I don't think I'd miss actually chewing food but not sure if I could deal with being hungry all the time.

    Juicing is great for added nutition. Be careful that you are still getting enough fiber (healthy colon) and overall calories (starvation mode stops the metabolism). Glad that you are feeling better.

    Keep with it.. and you will find you can still enjoy those great foods together in moderation sometimes.. But learning to support each other and working together could have benefits if you can approach it in a positive way. But, going your own way is fine too (that's what I do).
    Good luck and hope you continue to feel great on this new eating plan!

    You are doing great!

    My hubby is a bad influence too. He is tiny and eats whatever he wants and never gains an ounce. He brings me sweet treats and I eat them when I should learn to say "NO!"

    I am looking foward to watching you lose a lot on your 90 days.
