Day 55 of 100 Days Juice Fast

Just made a delicious juice.  For you die hard juicers out there.  Granny Smith Apples as a base .  Add Navel Oranges second.  Third is an inch of ginger.  I love ginger, by the way, I have it in about every juice.  One cucumber and a large orange beet.  On an aside, I have just recently started using the orange beet and the orange beet is so delicious.  I like it better than the red beet varieties.  Top it off with a touch of fresh strawberries.

It came out creamy and well worth the chopping and peeling.  I wasn’t the only one who enjoyed it either.  The whole family had some.

I am within 10 pounds of not being in the Obese column on my Wii Fit.  I consider that my next major goal.  My long term goal is 44 pounds away, which seems like a cake walk after having dropped 102 pounds since last year.

I know the next 44 pounds will be the hardest to lose.  I am game.  Thanks for all the support guys! Happy Juicing!

Day 39 of 100 Days Juice Fast

I bought some Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea today by Stash and for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to bring some chili flake with me to add to the tea.  Wow!  I definitely would recommend it.  I found the image above and apparently I am not the only one fond of this combination.

So today is officially day 39 of a 100 days!!!.  I have lost 30 pounds.  My goal was 40 by tomorrow but I will take the 30.  Juice is going great.  I am starting to get some salt cravings and this will pass. End date is not too far away.

Happy Juicing ! Have a great weekend!

Day 28 of 100 Days Juice Fast

Another couple of pounds gone, Yeah!  Doing 3-32 oz juice’s a day.  This last one was heavy on celery, not my favorite. 

I get the question about loose bowels with relation to juicing.  Yes it happens.  Not all the time but it does.

I am 23 pounds away from hitting a very important number.  198 is what my Wii at home says is the line between obese and overweight.  I am very excited.  Happy Juicing Everyone!

Day 25 of 100 Days Juice Fast

V  is for Victory….that is the way I feel today.  2 more pounds gone.  I feel great!  53 pounds to get to my optimal “normal” weight according to WebMD.

A little slow this morning , I stayed up late and I need to get a juice down.  Not sure what I will have.    I might make a yellow juice.  Yellow usually includes cucumbers, lemons and ginger.  I did enjoy a Tazo Tea “Zen”.  I know it has a little caffeine. I can really see the weight sliding off now.  I am literally going to walk out of my clothes, LOL.  

I am thinking more about outdoor activities and thinking of things I can do outside with my children.  So to all of you Juicers out there, I raise my glass of micro-nutrients to you!!!!  Happy Juicing!!!

DAY 23 OF A 100 DAYS JUICE FAST

20081009caramel_corn

 

Day 23 and I am between 25 and 26 pounds gone for this Juice Fast.  Total weight loss in the last 12 months is 86 pounds.  I can’t wait until I hit 100.  Thanks Joe ( @joethejuicer ).  Friends and coworkers are now asking me how I am doing it.  I hear lots of excuses out there.  I encourage them to try a 2-3 day fast, but most of them think it’s too hard.  What’s hard is the processed, chemically added food they eat right now.  Anyway’s, I was one of them and know I will continue to show the way with the rest of you juicers  at #juicing.

New treat , I have started adding fresh mint to my juices.  Wow, that’s great!  Especially with lemon.

I made homemade caramel corn for the family to eat while watching the game.  I am glad to see there was a whole bunch left over.  There is nothing better than my 1 and 1/2 year old asking me for some of my juice in the morning.

DAY 22 OF 100 DAYS JUICE FAST

Super Bowl Sunday

To all of my friends on the east coast good luck and to the west coast good luck as well.  I have no dog in this fight but I am leaning towards San Francisco.

I have taken off 26 pounds these 22 days.  I am hoping to have a couple of more pounds off by tomorrow.  I have included some workouts (mild mostly push ups and sit ups).  I plan on doing some running soon.

Running is a touchy subject.  I hate it so.  I have never been good at it.  I was in the military and even at my ideal weight I ran like a broken barrel down the road , huffing and puffing all the way.  I get shin splits and twisted ankles.  I do know that some of that is related to weight but not all of it.  I am a clumsy runner.  Some day I would like to run a partial marathon like the Seattle Rock and Roll Marathon.

I have always enjoyed lifting weights, especially upper body work outs.  Most of the muscle I had went to fat. Now I am trimming all that down.  I hope all of you enjoy your day.  Go Niners!

DAY 11 OF 100 DAYS JUICE FAST

I have stalled my weight loss over the past few days.  My diet has not changed but I think my body has gone into starvation mode.  I have been lacking one important ingredient and that is drinking large amounts of water. Water was so important in my last fast and because I am in winter I guess I don’t think about water as much.  So today I am going to step up my water consumption.  I plan on doubling my juice intake with water.  Wish me luck
