    Morning, Happy Juicers! Yesterday I had my two remaining juices, no solids until soup/salad for a very late lunch. Today I got up and juiced half a watermelon, some cukes, and some pears and beet greens. Might add some more variety as I try to boogie the fridge more of produce, make sure nothing is hidden or on the verge. (Can't fit more carrots or beets until I get some of this gone. But organic beet bunches are on sale thru today half the price at a local store and I want to make sure and stock up on them for my next juice session.. Hope they look good!)



    My husband is returning to our home town today. (Will miss him!) Juicing is up to me for 10 days until he comes down again. (My son is eating soup/salad ETL style, not juicing.) The upside of my husband being gone is it's "just me" and I can focus on my main goal, no excuses -- this opportunity to focus only on health improvements. Juice/broth, ETL style salad.



    As he left, my husband thanked me for having him watch some inspirational videos with him. We watched Forks Over Knives yesterday, and another of the youtubers who has transitioned to a whole foods plant based diet to solve health problems. He surprised me going out the door -- said it really helped. So there's a reminder of all the resources we have on the internet. I will be watching lots of different videos while here.

    Day 2 down 3 lbs since I weighed in Sunday morning. I have 6 servings of juice in the fridge and am ready to make some more this evening after my friend leaves. Going for a walk to get my steps in now. I feel really good going to stick to my schedule to only ingest my juice between the hrs of 11 and 7. It worked out well I was hungry in the morning but felt I timed my juices well so when hunger returned before lunch I drank 16 oz of water to tide me over the half hour I needed to wait for my next juice. Once I had that juice I was not feeling any hunger. after my dinner juice I did not feel hunger but craved something to chew for the last 2 hrs before bed. I really need to not snack at night at all when this fast is over!

    I had the same problem with regard to not being able to sleep. In the end I got up and made myself some veggie broth (just added water to broth powder). It completely nixed my hunger and my cravings for something super-savoury (read : salty), and afterwards I had no problem going to sleep.

    Unconventional, I guess. But it worked :)

    Not at all unconventional eebz2000, veggie broth is really ideal for hunger cravings! It is so much better than caving in to food. Plus the sodium allows you to drink more liquids which can also help to keep you full. Good for you iamFIT not caving and staying on the plateau. Plateaus can be hard to break do a google search for how to break a weight plateau and see if you can find a new idea that you haven't tried. A lot of time for me drinking beet juice helps because it is higher in calories and allows your body to have to adjust to the higher calorie juice which can rev your metabolism. Which is why some of the diets people like include 5 days of lower calorie meals followed by 2 days of higher calorie intake, then back to the 5 of low calories.

    Day 1 is going great I had 2 servings of watermelon fennel and had one at 11:15 and decided to drink the 2nd for lunch to make more room in the fridge since I was making juice. I first made Un-beetable, 2 servings and decided to make Mean Green with the beet tops instead of kale (mostly because I felt too lazy to walk down to the garden through soppy grass to pick kale) the yield was almost 3 servings so I put 2 in one jar and and tasted the other, I added in 1 orange to make up the volume difference and it was so delicious. I have to write it down in my Juice binder so I can remember to do this again. I searched a lot of new recipes as well so I can use up those cucumbers, but did not use any of those today. My friend comes tomorrow morning at 11 so I hope to get 2 servings of juice made before she arrives and 2 more after she leaves. I feel really good about juicing this time around it has been several months since a full time juice!

    Got my house all spiffed up and ready for company. It is raining right now and the air smells so good. I like to open the windows in the cool of the morning and unfortunately that brings in dust. I noticed yesterday that I need to do a dusting again due to that reason, the rain showers will help keep that down I have the windows open now and will dust tomorrow before my friend shows up!



    Today is my day 1, I guess I am behind a few people who started yesterday. I am doing this using intermittent fasting and keeping my calorie window in an 8 hour range. I can shorten the range later if i decide it is feasible. My first juice will be at 11 a.m. and I will have my last at 6:30 p.m. I am usually more hungry in the evenings then in the morning so I may have to adjust the time frame, though this has worked in the past. i Can have lemon ginger water earlier in the morning, so that helps me keep to the 11 am timeline.



    I forgot to weigh in this morning to get an accurate pre start weight. My fingers were swollen so i am hoping I am down a lb or 2 from yesterday, I had been good about maintaining except for the last few months. It was not a daily misbehavior, more of an intermittent and occasional week long problem due to travel, and the inability to chose good vegan foods. I did try so I guess I should be glad that after months of not juicing my weight gain is just 11 lbs.



    Off to weigh in and then off to the store so I can juice this morning. I have my 4 juices in the fridge and this way I can make 2 more varieties and mix things up.

    Morning, all. Second carrot juice of the day; and we're out of homemade. (My dh drank Suja so I could have these two homemade juices remaining. Trying to skip the oats this morning. Might have some broth.) I'm off to bike.

    Things are going as planned transitioning to juice only tomorrow I have 4 servings of juice ready to go for tomorrow, and will be making 4 servings tomorrow and 4 the next day so I can begin to mix them up a bit. I did weigh myself today and I had gained 11 lbs very disappointed with that, however I knew I was not getting in the exercise the way I had been all year and then I worked hard to get in 11 miles or more each day so I could finish my 2 races. Then I was at my parents for a week and eating was not on track at all, and no more than 1-3 miles each day which was not actual effort to get out and walk. I need to go to diet jail and drink juice and be made to exercise several time a day with no access to anything other than what items I am given to make my juices! I am just hoping the weight will come off a quickly as it went on!

    I think I realised my mistake: I read a post, a few days back, that Leslie was going to start on Monday. Obviously, somewhere in between, she changed her start-date to the 15th, but i just assumed that she was still starting on Monday, and that that just happened to be the 15th :)



    No problems! My fault for not checking, or just not knowing what date it was of my own accord. At least I'm not going mad! ;)

    "Don't be mad"

    Not mad, as in angry. Just glad I'm not losing my mind :) :) All the best for day 1!
