Hey Y’all!

In the home stretch now … and looking forward to the last several days of my little juicing adventure. Looking forward to another great week and who knows — a few more pounds off my belly too(?!).

This morning, I weighed 190.5 pounds … I’m 1/2 pound from 20 pounds!

Tonight’s dinner was mango, carrots, kale, cucumber, celery, and ginger root.

Another wonderful (and healthy) day!

Day 13: 7/7/12

Hi hi … OK, so this has nothing to do with juicing … but it’s cool. We visited the new Nature Research Center in Raleigh. Very cool place … you should go 🙂

And yes … today was another wonderful day full of juice. While grocery shopping today, I made it a point to buy locally-grown produce. It was a bit more expensive, but it’s nice knowing these foods were on the vine longer and were allowed to ripen naturally, instead of being picked before ripe in some other state and sprayed with ethylene gas while on their way to the market.

And for “dessert” … yumm yummmm yummmyyyy cantelope, plums, and apple juice. What a treat!

Day 12: 7/6/12

6 Jul

Still losing weight … still feeling great … and my pants are falling off of my butt. My weight this morning was 196.5. That’s almost 14 pounds so far … even more if you count my pre-fast prep time.

My lunchtime juice today was so colorful. Romain lettuce, celery, apple, orange, ginger root, tomatoes, and plums … I love me some plums!

And … OMG … I watched Food Inc. last night. Even if only half of the data are true, our food industry is in a heck of a mess.

Day 10: Independence Day!

4 Jul

Happy 4th!

Later this afternoon, we’ll be visiting some friends for a cook-out. I’m sure the grill will be bursting with burgers, dogs and lots of corn on the cob. I bet it will smell good … but no worries … I will be happy with my delicious veggie juice. Maybe I’ll decorate my sippie cup with an America flag today 🙂

And … I weighed myself today! I stopped weighing every day since my weight loss has slowed down … I would rather see a nice loss every few days on the scale than the same weight on consecutive days. And good news … I am still losing about one pound per day … my weight today was 199 pounds (AWESOME!).

I am looking forward to continuing a healthier lifestyle in the years (and decades!) to come. My long-term goal is to weigh 170 pounds. I know that won’t be achieved through this fast … and that it will probably take a few more months of exercising daily, eating right, and staying focused. I’m confident I’ll make it 🙂


Day 8: 7/2/12 (Week Two Begins!)

2 Jul

Good morning, fellow juicing enthusiasts!

Everything is still going very well … I have become an expert at “eye-balling” a pile of produce … and am able to predict how much juice it will make. The first few days, I was making too little … or too much juice. But now, I know which fruits and veggies produce a lot of juice … and those that don’t.

The way you chop / roll / and sequence the food into the juicer’s chute matters too … it’s all really fun actually. Clean up has finally become easier too.

We had a mini power outage yesterday and it occurred to me that no power = no juicer = no juice. It may be wise (since we are expecting more super-hot weather this week) to freeze a batch of Green Juice just in case.

Today’s breakfast and lunch:

  • apples, oranges, carrots
  • kale, collards, cucumber, carrots, apple, ginger root, red bell pepper
