Join the Reboot!!


 Well today I decided to join the reboot and i started my juicing!  I went to the store and gathered all i needed for a three day cleanse.  I bought the GE juicer from Walmart for about 50 dollars and BOY is it awesome!!  It is super powerful and spits out more juice than the real expensive ones!  


At 8 am- I started with 16oz of hot water and lemon

At 8:30 am I drank my first juice which was two apples, three carrots and some ginger.  


My first drink wasnt too bad.  Pretty sweet and...well carroty :)  About thirty minutes after my first juice drink i felt a rumbly in my tumbly and the rest ill let you figure out!!  Lets just say i had to run!  Let the detox begin.  

10:55 am i made my second drink which included 4 leafs of kale, three celery stalks, one apple, a half of lemon, a half of a cucumber and some ginger. 


I am currently working on this one.  Its um.  Well its TART.  This one will be a bit harder to get down. Wish me luck!!  

12:10 pm well that was rough, getting that drink down.  I am looking forward to a drink with tomatoes in it, hoping that one wont taste so.....green.  Good news is i have no desire to eat yet!!   Ill be having a late lunch drink, since im not hungry at all.  Be back soon!!


 I had a spa appointment, which was amazing, so I skipped the lunch drink and afternoon snack, which wasnt a big deal cause i wasnt hungry at all.  Ive been drinking water and when i returned i made this drink.  


6:00 pm half cucumber, one red bell pepper, 4 plum tomatoes, 1 celery stalk, half a lime, 1/4 of a red onion, and 2 cups parsley.

Id be lying if i said this drink was appetizing.  But i added some sea salt, a little garlic salt and some pepper.  Made it tolerable.  


10:26 pm- Im hungry.  But I settle for a spot of tea with some stevia :)  

Rough day, except for the spa part.  But i pushed through.  I think now i have a pretty good idea of what i like in the drinks and what i dont like.  I DO NOT like all the lime and lemon, makes the drinks bitter.  So i will sub an apple, and if i need to lime it up then ill squeeze a lil in here and there.  Thats the great thing about this, you can do your own thing just make sure to keep the fruits in the morning hours.  

Till tomorrow!


DAY 2

8 am- 16 oz of water with lemon


8:30 am- i used one pear, one green apple, 2 cups of blackberries, and 6 cups grapes.  This one is delish!!  Really tasty!  

9:00 am- bathroom break.  Good news is i have only had morning episodes.  Sorry TMI but these are important things to mention!!  

12:00 pm-  This one tastes like hot sauce.  4 plum tomatoes, 20 basil leafs, and3 cloves of garlic.  I also added some sea salt, maybe i over did it a bit but its not bad.   


3:48pm - I gave into temptation and had a Lara bar mini. Does it count that they are made from mashed up fruit and nuts?  No artificial anything??  NO?  :( im a failure.  


Im still going to juice. though, I have decided not to juice fast. There are plans on the site that combine juicing and eating. 

The fasting thing is really difficult for me, especially since im not distracted. 

I will begin my job search when we return from a planned vacay at the end of the month, so without a job so all i do is wish i was eating ya know? Chic-fil-a to be exact, but only cause there has been so much talk of it lately it has me craving it. ;)

I have found on any fast that im SUPER grumpy. Thats a bad combination with being a stay at home mom. No bueno. DONT get me wrong i have ALREADY seen a huge difference in how flat my tummy is. And i know that I am detoxing so the grumpyness for the first few days is to be expected. I just need to work with a plan that works with me at THIS moment. This is not the one right now.

I encourage you to work through the cravings if you can, but we are all different.  Start slow and work up to a longer fast.  

So for now ill be the juicing plus food.  Keeping in mind the proper foods.  Less meat more veggies, fruits and nuts.  I hope you enjoyed my short journey!! HAHA.  Good luck!
