So, I watched the documentary 'Fat, Sick, and nearly dead' about a week ago. It really inspired me to go on a juice fast. The guy did it for 60 days and totally changed his life. HOWEVER...I think I was a bit to gung ho. I did order a juicer and his book and used both for the first time yesterday. I did get a very affordable juicer with good ratings just in case I hated using it. lol. I do think there is no way I'm going to do a juice 'fast'. I just cannot handle it. I made his 'Joe's Mean Green' juice yesterday. It was a cucumber, a bunch of kale, half a lemon, two small apples, a dab of ginger, and..maybe that was all. Anyway, it was the nastiest thing I've ever put in my mouth. On the show they made it seem like it was tasty. lol. And, I was really hungry.
I know..i'm a sissy. But, I've re-thought this out and my new goal is to juice lunch and eat a healthy breakfast and dinner..adding in a lot more veggies into my diet..which was my main goal with all of this anyway. That plus quick weight loss..but is quick weight loss really worth being miserable every day?
Anyway, I am losing some weight finally. I've just been aware of my portions and have been making good choices here and there. Still making some bad ones..like having a mountain dew most days..and not making super healthy dinners. But, I've been making a lot of good choices also. I think the reason i've not been losing more this winter is my lack of activity. The days I wore my fitbit I was only logging 5000 steps..max. In the warm months when I can get outside and do things I generally log around 10000 on average. And, yes, there are things I can do inside for fitness and activity..I just don't ENJOY doing them so have to push myself more to do it. I think I also need to cut my calories more because of the reduction in activity. The juice would help with that for sure. Or just tracking and being aware and staying within my goal range. I adjusted my goal date this morning here on spark so hopefully that reduced the amount of calories they were giving me as my goal each day. They were way to high!
