Juicing… the 2nd weekend – day 7 (pt 2), 8, 9, & 10
so my first juice on day 7 was the Pine Lemon Lime… check
I had a salad later on that night – and my salads (at work) are pretty simple. the mixed greens, sun dried tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, and some balsamic vinaigrette (at home I add a teeny bit of feta)
I had a kiwi delight juice which was ok…
2 celery stalks
1/2 lemon, peeled
and then later on, I had what I call a kitchen sink.
I basically threw most of the rest of what I had into the juicer. it created two servings.
it included carrots, cucumbers, cauliflower, beets, grapes and blueberries
it wasn’t that bad actually a deep red color b/c the beet I had left was pretty large. . .
Friday at 9:30 am I had a workout to the beet:
3 small beets (beetroot)
1 handful of spinach
2 oranges, peeled
again, not bad…
and at 11 am I went to bed…
I got up at 6 pm and drank the other serving of the kitchen sink juice and made husband some dinner…
at 9 pm I had a salad and then I went to bed around 11 pm
Saturday I was starving and it woke me up around 4… at 5 am I dragged myself out of bed and had a snack of a piece of sharp cheddar with all natural peanut butter…
and then I went back to bed … got up around 11 am and threw everything I had left into a juice – it included broccoli, pineapple, spinach, and cranberries… it was pretty tasty!!
needless to say at some point that day I went to the grocery store to get more produce… (what’s awful is that it’s Monday morning and I still haven’t prepped any of that produce) anyways at 5 pm I had a salad and at 10 pm I had an apple…
sunday I woke up and weighed in and was super excited that I had lost 5.2 pounds… however, I also woke up super early b/c I had a horrendous ear ache and I needed to take something for it… as I didn’t have any of my produce prepped and it was super early and I just didn’t want to make a juice right then – I cooked myself an egg white omelet with broccoli and a slice of uncured turkey bacon… and drank some orange juice. it was quite a cheat, but at the same time it was very healthy. my orange juice is all natural and doesn’t include any sugars or anything bad for you. and the omelet was healthy also…
but… I’m going to have to consider all sunday my cheat day b/c we were out and about all day and I ate food all day instead of making any juice… for lunch we went to Plaza Azteca and I had 1/2 a fajita chicken quesadilla and a little bit of the rice that was included… I stretched it further by eating most of the lettuce/pepper/tomato mix that they include on the side…
b/c I knew we were going to be busy most of the day I had thrown dinner in the crockpot in the morning… after we got home, later in the evening, I put that together and ate it since I’d already eaten that day anyways… it was a garlic lime chicken that I served over a baked russet potato (on which I squeezed lime juice b/c LVG said it would taste like a potato with sour cream– it didn’t by the way, but it was still good) and I had a tiny sprinkling of cheese over that along with some hot sauce . . .
I’m not going to lie, I felt pretty fat at the end of the day… that was such a large volume of food vs what I’ve been consuming as of late…
and it did catch up with me… Monday morning when I woke up and weighed in I had gained back .6 pounds… (my scale is exact)
and I know it’s not much.. but it puts me back at 3 pounds away from my goal.
so today I’m back at it! I guess I will have 1 cheat day a week that I eat food for the majority of my meals… I would have had a juice last night if my produce was prepped, but… I ran out of time this weekend…
so — I’m off to prep my food, and wait for Roomba to run… possibly run some errands and then get some sleep for tonight’s shift… in which I will be consuming popcorn… (either tonight or tomorrow night …or maybe both!!!)
until the next update
