Happy 2012 sparkers! Juicing on...
Back from my travels, and today is my last day of my 2-week "vacation" from all juice. When I was on the road the week over Christmas, I drank 1 (purchased, Naked) juice a day and ate normally-- a little too normally with all the temptations ... Read more
Breaking the fast for Christmas (at 59 days)
Well, today is day 57 of my juice fast, modified for the last week to include a portion of protein per day. Slow weight loss continues; I sprained my ankle at the end of last week, and that messed up my plan to up the exercise to push my metabol... Read more
Day 53-- labs say I'm healthier, & shopping!
Ok, this is officially Day 53 of my juice fast, though as of last night I decided to modify it a bit to add some lean protein each day, whether that is a glass of lowfat milk with protein powder or a portion of lean meat or fish. I decided to gi... Read more
No one does it alone
Today I just want to say thank you to everyone who has been so nice here, reading my blog, commenting, sending goodies ... Read more
44 days, 21 lbs...
It's so nice to see the scale moving again. My cheats at thanksgiving cost me 2 weeks-- I never would have believed it. And they made not eating really hard-- so much of it is a mindset thing. It's like running a race-- 90% mental. Well, I've f... Read more
progress- at last!
So today the scale DID finally go down a pound. Now just to keep that up-- exercise, strict on the juice and water. I have 18 days before xmas eve-- I probably won't realistically hit 15 lbs, but if I can make 10 I will be happy. Working hard fo... Read more
Day 41 and whacked out hormones
OK, tomorrow the scale is going to start back down. Really. I have been trying so hard to fight the cravings lately & be good, so I need that reward.
But, I think I figured something out. I was going like gangbusters on the juice until my T... Read more
Well, 38 days into the juicing, though TG week was rough, and I ended up having a meal on TG day (which I have to admit was very tasty) and cheating a bit the next day when I let my brother talk me into a margarita and then couldn't rests munchi... Read more
Day 27- setback.
Ok, I've been juicing for 27 days now. I have seen so many good effects that it is without question that this is the right thing to do & I need to continue-- that said, I blew it tonight, big time. I made baked mac & cheese for my daughter tonig... Read more
Juicing, Day 24!
I am so happy with how this is going. In fact, I have been in a great mood in general. Yesterday I put on some new clothes (a size smaller) and left the house feeling good about how I looked for the first time in nearly 2 years. Work went incred... Read more
Day 19-- already?
The days are flying by. It's hard to believe I've been doing this for 19 days! I haven't weighed myself in a few days-- I decided to focus myself on other things til Wednesday, which will be the 3 week mark.
I had a tough few days at the ... Read more
Two weeks! 9 lbs, 2 inches off.
Today is the morning of day 15. After two weeks drinking just juice, I am down 9 lbs (11 if I include what I lost in my week of getting ready for the fat), and have lost 2 inches from my waist and 1 1/2 from my hips. I'm a little tired this morn... Read more
Day 12 of my juice fast
Good morning everyone! This is the morning of day 12 (slept in a bit today). I had been having some stuck weight this week, up and down a bit but not really moving. Yesterday it was creeping back up, but this morning it's headed back down more s... Read more
9 days done, getting the hang of this
Ok, I've finished 9 days, starting on day 10. My weight the past few days has been a little disappointing-- I'm down 6.2 pounds in 9 days, 8.4 overall if you count the week of prepping by eating mostly vegetables, but most of that was the 1st 5 ... Read more
finished the first week on juice only!
Ok, yesterday was day 7. Monday and Tuesday were really heavy work days, so I tried to save time on Monday by using some Naked instead of homemade in the evening, and on Tuesday I had to drink a couple of Nakeds late morning and mid-day because ... Read more
