It's been a rough day! Tomorrow will be better.
It's been a rough day! Tomorrow will be better.
Struggling this morning. I dreamt of a certain fast food restaurant last night. The staff only gave me part of my order! I woke up with the taste in my mouth. The worst part is that what I want isn't entirly unhealthy. It's actually vegan! So I'm spending this morning debating with myself over why it wouldn't be so bad to just eat it! Coming here and typing is at least keeping me from getting in the car and going for food. Resist!! I'm drinking juice. Waiting for this food frenzy to pass.
I wasn't able to do my c25k workout this morning, but I did walk an hour on the treadmill. I had some serious temptaions today. The smell of fast food wafting through the air! The sight of several fast food signs from the freeway. Cooking at home. I managed to overcome them all. Still just juice.
I'm out of veggies and wanted to go to the grocery store today, but I felt the temptaion would be too much. Now, I really need to go tomorrow!
Just a few sites that have helped me:
Podcasts etc: juicingradio.com
Juicer demos & comparisons (videos on youtube or link through web site): discountjuicers.com
Recipe builder: juicerecipes.com
Finishing up day 7, feeling good. I made it through a day of cooking, and even a trip to fast food while the family dined there. No exercise today. I definitely over exerted my calf. But, today was a scheduled exercise break. And, tomorrow is day 3 of c25k program.
Ready to take on the world!
It's day 7 for me. I feel a little down. A friend of mine lost a ton of weight. She's happy, healthy & looking great. Instead of giving me inspiration, it reminded me of my own failures. After losing about 80 lbs, I regained 130 lbs. Over the past 2 years, I've gone up and down. Rebooting, bingeing, in the gym, out of the gym, medications... My life has been in turmoil. Multiple moves, family issues, health scares...
But wait! That's the cycle that keeps getting back in a rut and gaining back the weight. Coming back to rebooting is what rights my course. I need to be real. I don't even seem to mentally realize how much weight I've regained. When I lost weight, I got rid of all of my fat clothees. Now, I've regained the weight and only have a couple of stretchy pants and tshirts that fit!
Since this marks a week back on just juice, I'm posting my before (when I had lost 80 lbs) and after (now that I have regained 130 lbs) pics. I need to remind myself that I have done this before and I'm doing it again. Hopefully for the last time! But I'm not a failure until I give up trying ;-)
Keep on keepin' on!
Whaaat!?!? Did day 2 of my c25k program this morning. Just finished another intense Zumba class tonight. Tomorrow will be a light fitness/recovery day.
Woo hoo! Feeling fabulous! I did another Zumba class tonight. Tomorrow is day 2 on my c25k (M,W,F). I hope my legs can handle it after the intense Zumba tonight. Of course they can!
I love being back in the groove. I still haven't completely found my pace, but juicing is familiar, freeing and easy (when I'm mentally ready). I'm ready to conquer the world!
Going strong! Just juice. I'm feeling good, but worried about the insomnia. If I don't get some rest, my body won't be able to recover well from the new fitness routine. And, I'm definitely concerned that the lack of sleep will have me thinking that I "need" a food and/or caffeine boost.
Today was a new "day 1" re-doing my c25k program. Slow and steady. Tonight I am going to a Zumba class at a new gym.
06/11/17 Day 3
Woo hoo!! Finally....got a few hours of sleep last night. Yesterday was a blah day for me. After not sleeping for a couple of nights, I was feeling wiped out. I wanted to put food in my mouth so very badly. I felt like eating a meal would give me energy and help me feel better. I resisted.
Today is the start of day 3 on juice only. Woke up and stepped on the scale (before drinking anything). I started a new fitness routine last week, after being out of the gym for far too long. I was still eating (drinking) junk. But, I released 13 lbs already! Yay, me ;-) At this point, I don't care if it's only "water weight". Since I'm re-doing my c25k program, beginning tomorrow, every once lost is fantastic. Walking, jogging, aerobics, etc, are all so hard on my feet and joints at this weight. I really do feel as though I need to lose weight before I can actually workout hard enough to really lose weight!
Feeling great and proud of myself for doing what I knew I needed to do. When I'm juicing, I feel in control of my world. Juicing quiets the food addiction down to a low hum in my brain. When I'm not juicing, my food addiction screams over my every thought and action. Channelling my food compulsions into juicing still has me constantly obsessing about "not eating". It still feeds (no pun intended) into my food addiction/o.c.d., but redirecting it towards juice at least has me obsessing towards putting something healthier into my mouth!
NEVER give up. Keep on keepin' on!
Back for another reboot! After a few short fasts and a few false starts, I'm back. Finished day 1.
Up with insomnia tonight. I have a morning gym date to attend. Too bad I'm not asleep recharging my body!
Life has been, well, life. I fell back into some old, poor eating habits. I wasn't working out. My schedule has been in turmoil. Now, I'm getting back to basics and rebuilding my routine around my summer schedule.
Monday I will be starting my c25k over from the beginning. I am feeling trepidation about it, due to the extra strain that the extra pounds put on my body. I laugh at myself when I think that I need to lose weight before I can get back into a good fitness routine...to lose weight. After being on the treadmill tonight, my feet, knees and hips are throbbing. Maybe a little pain is a good reminder that I need to stop straying from my fitness path!
Goal: 90 days of improving myself, through juice, exercise and loving myself.
It feels good to be "home" in my juicing community. I took a tech break for a while. Now, I'm back on just juice ;-)
Keep on keepin'on!!!

Looking forward to the New Year. A time to make the changes that I need to turn my weight (non) loss around. The last Nov reboot fizzled. A week in or so I found out some things about my health that kept me from going forward, I turned my back mentally, physically, to my overall health, which is somehow redundant of what I was trying to accomplish. A new year a new me.

60 days of power juicing right here. Join the group to share or get support. We will juice, support each other, increase water and exercise one day at a time and we'll do it together. Anyone up for the challenge? Let's lose unwanted pounds and have fun doing it, yes, right through the holidays. I used to be so self-conscious of people knowing I juice instead of eat. Eat to live. Nothing more. Not for entertainment or boredom. Breaking shame and the bondage of weight. Here's to juicing on!
