Well I was not going to start my juicing until Monday - but as we all know "I'll start on Monday" rolls around far too often. So I started today - Wednesday.
Firstly I was going to follow Jason Vale's 7lb's in 7 Days Program - which I have successfully done before. But after christmas I watched the movie Fat Sick and Nearly Dead and was greatly inspired by the results that were obtained by juicing, and made me look closely at the rubbish I was trying to fuel my body with - and its not good. I have a major sweet tooth.
Hence I have now decided that I will do a combination of the two - as there are many yummy recipes from both of these inspirational men.
In the movie Joe Cross did a 60 day juice only fast - and in America of all places. Gosh I found it hard today walking around the supermarket looking at all the food that I could eat - but my willpower withstood the test. I will start with a 30 day juice only fast and see how I go and then I might continue.
My goal is to lose 10kg (22lb). So we will see how I go. My husband is supposed to be joining me on Monday for his start.
So I started today with a simple Carrot/Apple/Ginger Juice. I used the following:
Small piece of ginger
It was really nice.
For lunch I had a juice from Boost Juice (as I was out shopping) which had apple, beetroot, orange, celery and I gave the boost a miss as I am not sure what exactly it is.
This afternoon I gave a Green Juice a go which consisted of:
4 Leaves of Kale
4 handful of baby spinach
4 stalks of celery
1 whole lemon
I found the taste a little bit strong due to the Kale - but it was still drinkable. Here is a picture of it.
And this is what my fridge looks like today - overflowing with goodness.
I will make the Crisp and Clean Green Juice to get me through the rest of the day. (click the link for the recipe - taken from Joe Cross's website.
Now all I need to do is add some exercise into my daily regime. I have an exercise bike which has not had very much use at all - so time to change that.....
Please let me know if you are following the Reboot Your Life Plan or Jason Vales 7lbs in 7 Days Plan and how you are going.
