10 Day Break…

Ten days on, and now, 10 days off? I am afraid to step on the scales. I figure I’ve probably gained 5 lbs. back. I’ll weigh in the morning, promise, and I’ll at least note the weight if I don’t snap a pic. lol

I had purchased containers of Greek yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, and cream cheese the day before I watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, and I’ll most likely be tossing them in the garbage if someone else doesn’t eat them soon. I have not been swollen over the past 10 days since eating regular food, so it could very well be the dairy that was causing that. I also need to come back off the coffee and start drinking my tea and lemon water again.

What I have been missing is bread and butter. Lord, do I miss the butter, and more so than the bread. I’ve had at least 1 full tablespoon every day since coming off the fast – on grits, on toast, on baked potato — so not good! :\ I should probably pick up a few avocados for the fat content so I’m not missing it.

Anyhow, tomorrow I will be starting the juicing again. I’ve got collard greens, cucumbers, carrots, apples, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, pineapple, garlic, ginger, and bottled lemon juice in the refrigerator.  I will also be busy in my garden. I’ve got seeds for broccoli, small carrots, peas, spinach, beets, kale, leaf lettuce, gourmet blend lettuce, and baby greens. I still need to find Brussels sprouts, Swiss chard and cauliflower seeds, so will do that this weekend. I had a great fall crop last year of all the greens that grew right through to this past spring, and it’s time to get busy planting! 🙂

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!! 🙂 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. 😀

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 perfect 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.

The 30 Day Plan

After watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, (free on Join The Reboot) and seeing the amazing transformations of quite a few juicing followers, I decided it was time I needed to honestly think about how I got to where I currently am – which is, Fat (185 lbs at 5’6″), Sick (high blood pressure, high triglycerides, a hiatal hernia), and Nearly Dead (tachycardia). I’m on blood thinner and Nexium, and I hate taking medicine. I’m in a wheelchair because I have no cartilage in my hip joints, so I take pain pills. I suffer from depression, so I’m on Wellbutrin. Lovely, eh? NOT! I’m only 48! If I continue on this path of eating what I want, when I want, and however much I want, I won’t be around to watch my grandchildren grow up.

So, today is my first day of juicing. I skipped breakfast because I didn’t sleep well last night, and had to take a quick run into town this morning. Lunch was grilled tilapia, mashed cauliflower, and steamed broccoli, and I enjoyed my last cup of coffee (cream and sugar included).

Dinner was a Mean Green Juice from http://jointhereboot.com.

The second juice was carrots, apples, cucumbers, 1/2 a lemon, and blackberries. Ugly color, but it doesn’t taste bad. I made enough for tomorrow while I was prepping the vegetables. One thing though – Don’t put blackberries though your juicer! I added them first, and had to stop, clean the juicer, and start over.

I have a slight headache, and hope it disappears before I have to take any aspirin for it.

I’ll be back tomorrow to post (with pics) my daily juice.
