Who says juicing isnt fun? Day 3 down 3.5 pounds ....

Sorry for the late posting!  Mom and Dad are in town and I had to spend last night with them and at the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa!  So, I was asked if i am doing a complete fast and the answer is yes but today unfortunately I ran out of my veggies and had only a huge cantalope at my Mom's condo so I had a few slices of cantalope and 2 slices of tomatoe.  I figured both are mostly water anyway and it wouldnt hurt to much.  The torture part was I had to watch everyone else chow down on Huge Nathan Hot Dogs with Italian bread and it smelled so good....  But I made it through and now I am back home juicing for tonight and look what I made...  This is my own recipe and it is delicious!  It was so good I put it in a wine glass.  Who says juicing isnt fun or looks good!!!??  Maybe when I can I will add a shot of tequilla!!!

10 small strawberries
1 large green apple
1 large orange
4 celery stalk with leaves on

Progress for day 3 lost total of 3.5 pounds and my ankles have not swelled up and I feel great!  I have more energy (I swear I wouldnt believe it if I wasn't doing it).  Seriously for me the toughest day was day one.  Day 2 was ok day 3 I am not craving anything!!!  Unreal but true.  I do drink plenty of water and exercising is huge key something i couldn't even think of doing before because I was alwasy tired! 

I know I still have a journey of 7 more days, and I will pray i can make it because I already feel the benefits now I can imagine what it will be like in the next 7 days.  If all goes well I may try to extend it for another 5 days.  The best thing I ever did was sit on the sofa 3 nights ago and put netflix on and by accident in search I hit the f.a and fat, sick and nearly dead just said watch me and It really made me see anyone can do this and you just need to believe in yourself.  It really does make a difference. 

Until tomorrow I wish you all the best and don't give up!  Just trying is an acomplishment to keep it going you will feel so much better. 

Have a blessed day and keep on juicing!

Green Juicing Day 2

 Day 2 feeling good ...lost 2 pounds!  Wen to the store and bought lots of fresh veggies.  Actually my daughter is here visiting and bought the veggies and fruits for me.  (I'm blessed to have such wonderful kids)

This mornings breakfast!  It needed ice lol.  But it tasted very good. Very healthy,  pray for me I need to go another 9 days! 

Did my Let's dance workout with the WII and that was fun.  Now off to spend time with family and maybe hit the casino.

* Make apple juice from 2 green apples.
* Make fresh vegetable juices from 4 stalks of celery, 8 stalks of bok choy (Chinese cabbage), ¼ pound of spinach and 1 punch of parsley.
* You'll have 2 cups of green juice in your fruit and vegetable juicer.
* Stir and enjoy.
Great for diet and nutrition, this juice drink helps your hair, skin, bad breath, colds, flu, digestion and gout. It's great for weight loss, cancer prevention and general cleansing.

Please let me know if you have any recipies or have done this before I would love to hear how it went. 

Thanks xxooxx

Ten 10 Day juice fast begins - Tired of being Fat, Sick and nearly dead!

This was my breakfast: 

So you think your eating right and BAM! slap of reality most foods we eat is garbage, yes garbage.  I never really thought about the impact of food before but then i saw Fat, Sick and already dead! That opened my eyes and I really said enough is enough.  So I am taking the 10 day challange to fast on only fresh fruits and vegetables.  This will help detox my body and if it goes well I may continue for another 10 days.  Please if anyone reading this has ever done this before I would appreciate your feedback and tips on how you didn't give up!  Also any recipe's you may have for juicing would be awesome. 

I have been eating much healthier the last few months and have lost a total of 22 lbs but now I am stuck.  So this is maybe the added boost to get my metabolism started and to clean out the toxins in my body. 

So my breakfast was: 2 carrots, 1 parsnip, half head of lettuce, 2 tomatoes, 1 orange, 1 lime, 2 apples, broccoli  OMG it was awesome!! 

I will keep you posted on my progress please help me if you have done this before !!!  LOL XXOOXX

P.S I also am doing WII Lets Dance Sweat did 45 minutes this morning feeling awesome its fun and easy to do.
