After spending hours in the flower beds yesterday
it almost felt like spring. That is until a major artic
blast blew in, bringing 14 inches of snow in the
Texas panhandle and very cold 30 mph. winds
here in Central Texas. We’re sitting around the
fireplace tonight! But Spring is definitely around
the corner and so is the end of my 60 day juice reboot.
Last week, with the end in sight, Kim cautiously
suggested, I consider adding a healthy protein
powder. Then last Saturday, Jenny and I spent a
fun, wonderful day together. Appointments at the
Woodhouse Spa, shopping in Waco and an informative
walk through Natural Grocers. I asked Jenny lot’s
of questions through the day, and she too, suggested
that I begin to add back protein. She explained the
the benefits and after discussing this with Coach, yesterday,
I decided to eat 2 eggs, 1 turkey sausage patty and
1/2 c. of old fashioned oats with blueberries and cinnamon.
I enjoyed every bite.
So, officially my veggie juice fast ends on day 47. Wow!
What an accomplishment! As I reflect back over the
past 6 weeks, my eyes fill with tears as began to realize
what I’ve done. Not only have I saturated my body with
nutritious vegetables and fruit, cleansing and restoring.
I’ve also broken 100 bad habits as well. I’m so excited!!!
I am so grateful. So much has changed. Don’t
worry! Though, my fast has come to an end. My healthy
future, is just beginning. I will continue, to make thoughtful
decisions. Adding lean proteins and increasing daily work
outs to included T3 Boot Camp and begin lifting
weights. As of today, I’ve lost 28 lbs. and I am almost
halfway to my 60 lb. goal. I celebrate and resolve to
continue this journey. Determined to lose 35 more by
my birthday on May 14th! I believe this is realistic and
I know now more than ever, I can do this!
Day 48 – 28lbs. gone forever! I’m 35 lbs. from my goal!
The adventure continues!
Oh! The juice above was SUPER TART! Kind of like
sour gummies. I did manage to drink it but I wouldn’t
recommend it but today, I did juice up a fabulous concoction
which I’ll share in the next day or so. It was awesome!
Also, I wanted to mention thank you for your thought’s,
prayers and comments. It’s really helped and encouraged me
along the way. And for the nice person who left an
anonymous comment a few days ago. I found that my favorite
way to wash and store veggies, was to wash them in a sink of
water as soon as I get home from the store. Some I store in
Ziploc’s but I also enjoy using a very large lidded Tupperware.
I’m thinking about how to put all the juice recipes together.
Feel free to make suggestions.
