So I ended up eating today. That made for 6 full days on just juicing. I lost 8.8 lbs in total and a total of 50.2 lbs woo hoo I hit the 50 lbs mark. I’m so not disappointed that I did not make the 10 days cause 6 days is awesome! I do not regret my decisions and am comfortable with the number of pounds lost this week. Now I am flush and ready to start digging in again on my journey that is weight loss. I currently weigh 238.2 this morning.
We added a new member to our family a 6 week old beagle named Eterno which in spanish means eternal and our other dog’s name is Liebe in german that means Love so together they are eternal love lol! I think it is cute even though it is dorky! He will be sleeping in a crate until he is house trained so that will be a few weeks. I am glad I got him at such a young age. This way I can train him the way we think he should be. He will be a great walking buddy when he is older. For now I will try walking him to and from the mailbox which will probably feel like 100 miles to him, lol.
Until tomorrow which it is already tomorrow but shh…
Another weigh in today and it said 239.2 for a 7.6 weight loss and a total of 49.8 lbs. Woo Hoo maybe tomorrow I will finally be at the 50 lbs mark!? I am more then 1/2 way through my juicing. Everything is going great.
I have been looking at Craigslist for a new puppy. Can’t mourn forever. I still think about Elwood and love him but I think I am ready for a new little munchkin’. How does troubling life aspects affect your diet… your mood… anything?
I popped on the scale today and it said 240.2 which is a 6.6 lbs weight loss since Sunday. That is pretty cool! Total weight loss is 48.8 lbs. Getting closer and closer to that 50 lbs mark!
So I ran out of strawberries and apples so I need to go to the store and get some more seeing how those are my fave fruits to use. I still have cantaloupe and honey dew melon. Last night I got the craving for some water melon so I will go check out those when I go out later.
Still so far so good. I am half way threw my cleanse and there is not much to complain about. This is a beautiful time of year where even during mid-day it is 75 degrees. I am so thankful for summer being over with. Those were some brutal months. I did not do a thing to benefit myself during those months either.
What are your fave juicing recipes? Any good recipes for when I do start eating solid foods again? Any and All advice is welcomed; feel free to join the conversation.
When I step on the scale this morning I was 241.4 and when I started juicing I was 246.8 this gives me a total weight loss of 5.4 pounds since I started juicing and a total weight loss of 47.6 pounds. I am getting closer to that 50 lbs mark which is cool.
Last night I made 3 pounds of apples, 16 ounces of strawberries, and 1 cucumber. It was amazing even the oddness of the cucumber was great. I am going to have some more of it today. I like trying different variations on the ones I know I like. I bought a little mint plant and I may add some leaves to my next drink. I doubt the plant will survive long for one winter will be here soon and two I kill almost every plant. I am just never meant to be a gardener.
I do not see many differences in myself since I have started juicing. I am able to go to bed later and get up earlier. So, the energy levels have gotten higher which is cool. Well, another day another experience. Until tomorrow!
Day 3 of my juicing experience and so far so good. I got on the scale today and I weigh 243.8 for a total of 3 pounds lost so far. I don’t feel tired or cranky, I have ye to have crazy bowel movements, I am pretty much going through each day the same except instead of eating I am drinking my juice. I know every one is different and the craziness can come later in the experience but for now I am happy with the results and my energy levels.
This morning I made Swiss chard with Honey Dew Melon. I only put 5 leaves of chard because it does not smell good so I figured I wouldn’t like the taste of it. In time I will be able to add more leaves to my drinks once my taste buds get use to it. I will prob have to do that with a lot of the veggies. This is a learning process and is one that I am happy to venture through.
The weather is awesome! I love this time of year!! How do you take advantage of this weather? Do you do anything special?
Well, today is my second day of juicing and I am not a complete wreck yet. Eight more days to go. I can do this!! It is interesting seeing what fruits/veggies produce how much juice. apples and strawberries are my fav so far. I made this one drink called Mean Green and it is so not tasty. I have never made fresh juice before this so it is nice to taste the difference.
My friend is visiting from out of town and we will prob go walking tonight or tomorrow morning. It has been a while since I have gone walking so it will be nice to go again. The weather has been perfect these past few days so it will be nice walking weather!
Do you drink fresh juice from home? Any recipes you would like to share? If you buy store bought juice what ones would you recommend? How do you get back in the sing of walking/ exercising?
So you know how some people when something bad happens everything else bad seems to follow? That’s my life this year. I got into the car accident, my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer, and my dog passed away. They say things come in threes and I hope it stops here for a while.
I know life happens and it is so easy to let that get in your way. In a sense I did. I have let life win but unwillingly. No one wants any one of those things to happen so when they do it is a shocker. I was watching Netflix and this Documentary came on about this guy who went on a juicing fast. The movie is called ” Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dying”. It has inspired me to go on a 10 day juicing fast. I will have nothing but fresh homemade juice. Last night I made Honey Dew Melon with 16 ounces of strawberries. It was really great. This morning I have having cantaloupe. So far so good! I am going to experiment with different fruits and veggies to see what taste good. I will update you on my progress everyday through out the 10 days.
Last time I weighed in I was 247.2 and for the past few weeks and this morning I have been weighing in at 246.8 which is a weight loss of .4 pounds, lol. How cheap does that make me feel. All this time and I have lost so little. I highly recommend that you watch the documentary. It made me think twice about trying it out and maybe it might make you think!?!
I am still trying to mourn the loss of my doggie Elwood and try to wrap my head around this hole cancer thing that my aunt has. I know in time it will all come to fruition but I need to stay on track with my weight loss and not just be content with maintaining. I know both Elwood and my aunt want the best for me and losing weight is part of that better healthier life style. I want the best for me as well. So right now I hold a cup in my hand with fresh cantaloupe juice and I say a toast for every one out there who has ever lost a loved one whether it be human or not. Here is to you may your heart be strong enough for change and your life lead you down a path of healing. *Cheers*
How are you? Today was a very uneventful day. How do you get your self motivated to go for a walk when it is 90+ degrees out side? Do you have any links for indoor activities? The heat keeps me from wanting to leave the bed.
I need to start drinking water again. My goal for tomorrow is to drink at least 1 liter of water. I have to start some where right? I’ve been drinking gatorade and vitamin water. Do you suggest any other drinks?
How was your day?
Since we have last spoken I was in a car accident. I never gave up and I am still trying to lose weight. When I stepped on the scale this morning I was 247.2 and the last time I weighed in here I was 253.4 total weight loss since last weigh in is 6.2 pounds. Total weight loss = 41.8 pounds lost.
I have been disappointed in the lack of weight loss these past few months. As an adult I have no one to blame but myself. A big part of it is the weather being so hot. I feel I lost more weight when I was walking outside then I do by using the Elliptical. The summers tend to be a hard time to lose weight but then again if I allow that to be my excuse I can use it all year round for every season. The car accident shook me bad. I still cringe when I am driving though an intersection or when I am a passenger in some one else’s car. If I let that fear dictate whether or not I lose weight then why not let all my fears do the same? In the end there is no one to blame but myself.
Even though I have not gained any weight I still feel burdened knowing that I let myself slack like this. Most importantly I stopped blogging because I was afraid of how you would react. For those of you who respond to my comments and lend a listening ear I felt like I was letting you down and by not blogging I can some how evade your radar. Blogging about weight loss and other random events in my life is fun. I miss interacting with you. I want to start fresh and I felt this confession would be appropriate.
My name is Penny and today is my 161st day of my new life change. I have not had any soda in the past 161 days also. At first it was going to be just 100 days but then I got to 100 and I knew I could make it a year. I am almost half way there.
I do not know if you know this but I have a lazy eye. In 9 days I will be having surgery to fix my eyes! I am excited and nervous all rolled into one. This is something I have always wanted to get fixed. Until a few months ago I thought I would have to live with it for the rest of my life and then I found out I do not have to. Having a lazy eye is not like gaining weight. I eat therefor I gain weight but I did not do anything to have a lazy eye I was just born with it. In the grand scheme of things it is probably one of the least restricting deformities a person could have so I am very lucky on that part. Knowing that I am getting it fixed is just icing on the cake or rather berries in my yogurt, lol. This is also a part of my life change. I wont have to hide behind sunglasses or worry about taking photos. I wont have to deal with ignorant people making fun of my eyes any more. I once had some one ask me if I was retarded because only retarded people have lazy eyes. Those were not my words they were his words and they hurt. In 9 days I will not have to ever worry about things like that again! I can’t wait!!!
All in all it has been an interesting past 2 months. I have learned some things about my self and I hope I can continue with you on not just my journey but on our journey through this crazy thing called life.
My parents are here again and I finally have a car. I spent the night at my brothers house and unfortunately he does not have a scale here so I will have to wait until tomorrow to weigh myself.
I had oatmeal with banana and strawberries for breakfast nom nom. How was your weekend? I am feeling a bit disconnected with my WP family. How is everyone?
