Jucie Me Up Scotty!

Hola! I know it's been quite a while. I had a major move and with that came some major weight gain so here I am with some new juicing recipes to help shed some pounds!

This is what I'm currently having for breakfast.

The Any Time Cocktail

2 Granny Smith apples
2 celery stalks
1 cucumber
5 kale leaves (I used 3)
1/2 lemon
2 peeled oranges
1 handful parsley

As you can see this makes a LOT of juice. I refrigerated what I couldn't fit in my glass for later.

Sweet Potato Orange Juice

I decided to add sweet potatoes into my juicing because a friend told me they were deicous when juiced and boyyyyy do I agree! This was so yummy I almost felt like I was cheating! 

1 sweet potato peeled
2 oranges peeled
1 lime
1 large carrot

NEW JUICER! Hamilton Beach Big Mouth

My mom bought me this for my birthday last month and I LOVE it! I was previously using a Black & Decker which was fine for a beginner but soon made juicing a task because the mouth was so small. It used to take me 15 minutes to make a juice and now I can finish in under 5, after the prep of course! 

You can find this juicer on Amazon, at Target or at Walmart for the lowest prices!

My current weight at the beginning of this journey, which was 4/23 was 173.2. My goal is 150! Wish me luck!

Back at it!

I've been using recipes I already have posted on the blog so I'm just going to be adding as I start using new ones.

Strawberry Pear Orange (Raspberry) Juice
12-15 Strawberries (I used 10 because I added raspberries)
+a few raspberries 
1 Pear
1 Orange

This was absolutely delicious!
One of if not my favorite yet!

Day 9, 10, 11 & 12

For these 3 days I only juiced once. I had a very busy school and work week. I have felt the effects and I will say I am back on track starting today!

I tried to keep it healthy and eat tuna salads for my meals.

Tuna, carrots, lettuce, spinach, hard boiled egg, cheese, NO dressing!

Kiwi Sunrise (my creation)
3 peeled Kiwis
1 cup fresh pineapples
1 peeled mango
1 cup strawberries

Tuna, carrotts, lettuce, hard boiled egg, cheese, NO dressing!

For dinner yesterday I had a half of a tuna salad hoagie and a bag of French Onion Sun Chips.

Thanks for all who have been visiting and good luck to those of you who are giving it a shot! I wish you great health!

xoxo Mickey.

Week 1 weigh in!

Ok so after 1 straight week of the juice fast, tailoring it to fit my schedule and preferences here's my weight...
On the night of Day 1(September 22nd) I was 164.2lbs so I've lost 7.6lbs since the I started the juice fast and 11.1lbs total since September 12th.

For the next week I'm going to continue the fast but since I'm now close to my original goal weight of 155lbs I'm going to incorporate some light exercise into my daily routine, every other day. I'm also going to start adding salads into my meals for the day, unless I don't want one that day.

For an ab workout I found one that is effective and fairly easy to do.
8 minute abs

I also like this one because she's super fun.

I'll be posting what workout I did for the day!

Onto week 2!
