    Day 15:

    I made beet juice (with cucs, carrots, tomato, and lemon) today, and ate some vegetarian style lentil soup (I made it a couple days ago and it was great!). I'm really full right now, and also very tired from work, but I feel good. I want to juice before going to bed, but I'm just too tired tonight. I work 12-hour shifts, and not much down time, so I'm beat!

    I'm also drinking some good herbal tea, and bringing hummus and chopped veggies for snacking during the day. I get really hungry around 3pm everyday, so I make sure I am prepared.

    I have a system for my juicing, but it takes so much time between the shopping and the actual juice processing. I bought mason jars to store my juice in, and herbal teas too. Anyone have any shortcuts that works for them?

    Thanks for your ongoing support, and I wish all of us great success in our efforts be healthy!

    Juice4Life, what is your system for juicing? Do you juice for the whole day at one time? Or do you juice a couple times a day? Do you buy produce for 2-3 days of juicing? Thanks, Marie

    Day 14:

    I had a good day and I made the best juice since I started my 60-day reboot challenge. I made V-8 juice and it tasted phenomenal! My husband even loved it! I'll weigh in on Sunday, before work and see how I did this week.

    Thank you, All, for your ongoing support and commitment to health!

    Day 6:

    I am learning to make my juice ahead for the day on my work days, which saved me alot of time today. I juiced 40 oz of greens (mostly greens) and oranges. It was good. I was on track and I drank a liter of water, but I need to drink more.

    For tomorrow, I made about 60 oz of juice from parsley, kale, cucs, red pepper, apples, oranges, and celery. I am ready for tomorrow.

    I'm really tired tonight; I've been working since Thanksgiving day, and will straight through till Tuesday. I had to buy produce tonight after work and I juiced already.

    I weighed myself, and found out I lost a little over 5 pounds! I was shocked, as I've been the same and even up abit since I started my 60-day juicing challenge on November 21st. Since September 4th, I'm down 10 pounds! I'm happy with the weight loss, though, my focus is not on my weight primarily. My focus is on restoring my health, as I am determined to take responsibility for my vitality, having energy and being pain free, and beating cancer for good!

    I know I got this. . .I just have to ask for support, be supportive to others of like mind, and appreciate my progress everyday. Thanks to all juicers who have blazed the trail way ahead of me. . .I learn a great deal from your posts and experiences!

    Are you doing a juice only reboot? How many ounces a day do you drink? Thanks, Marie

    Day 4:

    I made juice from oranges, carrots and apples today. It was great and didn't bother my stomach at all. I also had some Thanksgiving dinner today, but I'm on track again.

    That is my favorite juice recipe. I call it my "Go To Juice". It is quick and easy, and when I am running late for work, I can always get this juiced for the day.

    Glad you are back on track. Me too.

    Day 3:

    I made spinach, kale, parsley, carrots, apples, and oranges juice today; I had a hummus plate for lunch, and a few french fries (baked) for dinner.

    I had a huge BM too! So, I'm feeling much better.

    My belly is bothering me as its "talking back" and I have some gas, but it's all manageable. My headache is less today and my muscle aches are less. I had the energy to clear off the cars after the snow today too, which rather surprised me! We got almost 8 inches of snow!

    I work tomorrow, and plan on driving to New Brunswick to see Sarah and family tomorrow night, if it's possible. Right now I can't even get out of the driveway!

    Keep on juicing!

    I added frozen blueberries to the rest of my green juice today and finished it easily. I did have a belly ache again, but I'm realizing it is from the kale. I've had trouble with kale before.

    Day 2 of My Reboot!

    I purchased an Omega VRT350 HD and received it yesterday. I've become fairly comfortable already with the juice processing, after watching numerous YouTube videos about how to use the juicer. It's easy to assemble, to use and to clean.

    The juice I made today had beets, apples, oranges, and carrots. (I made my husband a glass of just carrot, apple and oranges, as he hates beets!). I made about a quart of juice, and I drank about half of it so far. For lunch, I had a baked sweet potato; it was delicious. I had a banana smoothie for a snack (almond milk based) with organic cocoa and acai powder. I am feeling very full right now.

    I have a headache which is typical. I've also have significant pain from fibromyalgia and constipation. My hypothyroidism is somewhat better, as I just began taking more medication. I'm sleeping better. My mood is 5/10, I could go either way. . .

    That's all for now.

    Sometimes you need to let dedication fuel your motivation. Sometimes you need that helping hand. Remember why your here, why your even reading this right now. No one can change you but you...But everyone can use a good push In the right direction. When that voice screams "STOP!", Listen to the voice whispering "Keep Going"
