Day 18 – #60DayJuiceChallenge

So I am well into the whole juicing adventure, I finished my 5 day juicing challenge which is what I initially signed up for. But wanted to take it further as I mentioned in my last post. I am as the title suggest on Day 18, and let me tell you, at this point in my adventure, it is not at all easy. I crave food, but really who wouldn’t? I cook for William (my honey), I had a little taste of some mashed potatoes, and a string, literally a string of chicken. I won’t say that is cheating, but I think I needed it, not trying to make excuses. This is really hard, especially since I am trying to finish my 60 days without quitting, as I am not a quitter.

As of today, well not today, last time I weighed myself I was at 223.6 I believe, which if you follow me is a huge difference, but I am still a ways away from the ideal goal weight I would like to be at, with that comes sacrifice, which is what I am going through now. And yes don’t let anyone tell you, it is a walk in the park, because it isn’t. The more occupied you stay, the easier the days get, but when you are not as busy, and you sit and watch TV or you are at the Mall haha. Damn you will get plenty of reminds of what you are missing. So I do not do those as much, unless I have to lol.

I will weight in Saturday and hopefully return some time that day to do a post, I would like to keep and update of how that is going. My walking has stopped for now. I sometimes do not feel I have the energy to do it, and that is my own fault, as I don’t drink the 5 juices and water I am suppose to daily. My bad, I know. But once my 60 days are up, I will resume walking, i may go ahead and resume next week, in addition to the juicing, but maybe 30 mins per day rather than the hour, I just need to do drink the juices I am suppose to, to keep that energy level up where it belongs.

As for the actual juicing, oh my gosh, that is so time consuming, picking out what you want, and if you don’t have one thing, finding a substitute. I seriously sometimes spend 1 or 2 hours just doing that, sometimes a little more. That does not include washing the juicer parts after. I have to do that each time, so when I do juice, I try to make the juices in the early evening, so that I make my dinner and evening, and breakfast and lunch juices. At least that is what is working out for me. I think that is about all I wanted to talk about today. I will leave photos of juices I made or the ingredients just to give you an idea. If interested you should go and sign up for a free 3 or 10 day plan! Go to rebootwithjoe.com.

These are only a few photos during my juicing. Was no point in showing you all of them. Btw this is posted late, but back dating lol. I don’t know how I forgot about this, but I did.

Holidays & Weight Management Update

So yeah I have seriously gone MIA, but have returned, have some good and bad news for you.

Bad news: I gained weight lol, I blame myself and the holidays hehe.

Good News: I have discovered serious juicing!

I was doing fine with my eating up until after my birthday, then I slowly progressed to not eating as good end of December I had already discovered juicing with Joe Cross after watching his 2 documentaries. Then found him on Facebook. He offered 5 day pan for free, we jumped on it, as my fiance since he stopped smoking, has gained weight, and he was never unhealthy, but it does cause me concern, so he will be trying the juicing, not as intense as I will.

So after joining his support group, and the challenge which will run for 5 days, I choose to go for 60, which is what he dod, and made it. If he can, I can and I will! I am determined.

Ok so I signed up, we would get periodic emails, I wasn’t getting any, at least I didn’t see them, there was 1, that got lost in old emails *sigh*, it was crucial, as it arrived on Jan 1st, and would show us how to prepare for juicing. Well, I found it 3 days ago, meanwhile since I knew I would be juicing, I ate anything and everything I had not been eating for the last year and a half lol, don’t get me wrong, I didn’t over eat, except for cookies and cupcakes LOL. I enjoyed what I knew was bad, especially after watching his documentaries, and one or two others. So disgusting what they don’t tell you about the stuff we put in our bodies, this definitely opened up my eyes.

Well I continued weighing in, as I always have and will do. I obviously gained weight. I an hoping to drop 50-60 lbs during my juicing, more if possible.

I will be logging my weigh-ins, and possible short posts about how I am feeling, for my own record On Monday I will weigh-in again, even though I will on Saturday, but it is for record keeping and keeping a more accurate record of my weigh-in on Day 1 of my 60 day juicing period.

Here are some links to the documentaries, which are found on Netflix, or you could buy the DVD, we got a free DVD with the juicer we bought. Will show that too later.
