14days of nothing but clean eating / drinking is great. I have cheated here and there on all programs I have been on except this one. This is the first program that I have stuck too and I intend to stick too thru this journey. Don’t be deceived, it is hard!!! Takes will power to do a juicing diet. You must want change in your life desperately for you to do it.
I started my leave and I must say it is harder being home. I normally enjoy my leave and the days go so quickly. This one in particular the days are longer and am just finding ways to keep my self busy. Normally I would be hanging with my gals allover town but not this time. I need to finish my reboot.
Am looking for ways to keep changing my juice here and there. I find myself buying all the lemon in the market because that ‘lemony’ taste in the juice is making it bearable. I say bearable because for the program to work well half your juice must be green juice, then other veggies and 20% fruit. I hate the green thats why am saying ‘bearable’. I have told myself that it is temporary, and there is no gain without pain. I take it like medicine. It is easy for me to stop today but that would mean sacrificing my health freedom. Like the saying goes, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Am doing this.
I am enjoying lots of sleep. My ankles have lost the swelling I had. And am not using food as my pass time.
My hubby is joining the reboot and am excited about it. He thought I wouldn’t last a week and I have done two and going strong. Will be great to have his support. I have incorporated this kind of juice in my kids’ meals but with no green. I will be introducing the green in their juice very very carefully. I have replaced some of their snacks with juice and they love it. Lots of veggies in the juice and a little fruit to taste. It’s not the usual juice we do. I was very surprised that Kay of all people loved the juice.
Xmas is around the corner and to be honest am not bothered. To join the Xmas spirit am trying to figure out a special recipe for the day. Anybody that can help me with good recipes for green juice please do. The more the better.
I just can’t wait to get thru the month of Dec. I will celebrate Easter, this Xmas I will pass. For me this will represent my triumph over my food addiction.
I want to make a correction on my inches measurements last week. First of all I measured in centimeters and forgot to convert to inches and secondly even with my summation the formula didn’t pick up a figure that had been written as text thus giving an erroneous figure. My sincere apologies. The actual inches lost last week were 6.2inches. <<<<
And now…….Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls; the results for the 2nd week……..drum roll pleeeeeeeease;
Kgs lost 4kgs. Inches lost all together 3.4inches (around the waist, burst, thighs, legs arms etc). This brings my total loss to-date to 8.2kgs and 9.6inches. Thats winning bigly, am super happy. Best program ever.
Xmas week here I come. Am not scared of you. Am winning.
Merry Xmas to you all
