Day 11…Restarting the Reboot!

Today was just insane – I have to stop staying up so late, but now I’m playing “catch up,” so it will be another late night. As promised, I did step on the scale…with much dread, because I have been eating for 10 days. I gained 3lbs back! I expected to gain some weight, but at least it wasn’t the 5 or more that I had feared.

Still, when you’re not able to walk, and your only form of exercise consists of what you can do with light weights and a stretch band, that isn’t enough to work off the fat. There are no local gyms where I live that are set up to handle someone in a wheelchair, and the closest track is in town – 35 miles away. I can forget getting out on the paved road too, since it is literally UP hill from where I live. The ride down might be fun, but I would probably end up with a broken neck. lol Not good. What would you suggest?

I have 2 new recipes to share this evening. I was sadly disappointed – make that highly upset – to discover that all but 1 sweet potatoes had gone bad, as well as all of my beets, and I just bought them last week! I’m blaming it on having turned on the heat with the cold front that has dropped in, and leaving them on the counter instead of putting them into a cooler area. So, I have to go back to the store tomorrow for more groceries. I’m not happy!

Anyhow, the first recipe is Carrot Kale Juice. It’s a bit on the green side with just a hint ofthe orange from the carrots – so it’s a very dark shade of green – almost (but not quite) brown. Don’t look at it, just drink it! LOL It tastes slightly like carrots, which is good, because I do not like straight green juice. ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second juice is Beet – Kale Juice. It is a lovely shade of purple, and very tasty! I like the 2 cloves of garlic in it too. Don’t worry – It won’t give you garlic breath! ๐Ÿ˜€

Day 8: I0.6lbs down

Day 8: Today was not a good day. Not in terms of hunger, because I met – or will meet my goal before bedtime, but I was in some incredible pain today. Blame it on my stupidity yesterday for cleaning out one the totes I’m using for gardening. I had let it fill up with grass seeds instead of covering it after I’d pulled out the kale at the start of summer, and I ended up pulling the entire pile of dirt up out of the box — Ouch! Hopefully I got all the grass roots out, but I’m paying for it. Even a double dose of ibuprofen and BioFreeze hasn’t helped. My sails were a bit low today.

On a much more positive note, I’m down 10.6lbs from when I started; I’ve got plenty of energy; and my juicing experiences are becoming more creative. I’ve also concentrated today on getting in all of my liquids today – water included, and I will have that in before bed, so YAY! me!! ๐Ÿ™‚ You have no idea how hard this has been, but I think I have found something that is going to work for the next 22 days – Now would be a good time to invest in ReaLemon. ๐Ÿ˜€

I wanted something garlicky with tomatoes for my last juice of the day, and since I’m out of tomatoes, I used a jar of mild salsa. Salsa was the perfectย addition since I’m also out of onions. You might like your juice a bit spicier, so I would go with a medium salsa, and add extra garlic – or if you can eat tomatoes and onions without any problems, definitely go with fresh produce on this, and add half of a small, white onion.

Let me know if you try the juice, and leave some love in the comments when you drop in!

See you tomorrow.
