Today is Day 17 of my juice-head adventure.
These last few months, I've been really into trying to get healthy and lose wight. Before I went on vacation, I was eating pretty healthy and even started running (and enjoyed it!) again.
clean for about two weeks, but didn't fully commit. I started running again and loved it, I felt great and surprised myself with how long I could actually run, but I gave it up with the excuse that I was too busy prepping for vacation.
I feed the Bambinos healthy food pretty much always.
I want to keep them as healthy as possible and not be the cause of any sickness they might get. But yet, I don't extend the same courtesy to my own body.
I want to detox. I'm freaked out by diet pills so juicing is a good way for me to rid my body of toxins while also fueling myself with essential vitamins and minerals I may miss out on if I were to eat food. I don't like most vegetables. It worries me how our bodies hold on to things so I want to clear mine out. Without laxatives. That shizz freaks me out too.
I'm not going to post before and after pictures as I look pretty much the same as I did last time I posted some, although I did take some after my first day. As of this morning, I've lost 7 pounds and I weigh exactly what I did before I got pregnant, but I'm still not happy.
That's a sign that I need to work out. I realized yesterday I feel better when I work out regularly, even if I don't look any different. And, I'm ok with me staying the same size, I just want to be more toned. Although the weight loss is a definite bonus, for me, this is more about how I feel, how I sleep and how food affects me.
Do you have any good juice recipes for me?
Don't forget about the giveaway! I draw a winner tomorrow!
