Day 40! Woohoo!

It's day 40, and I feel like it's time to step up the game. I've hit a plateau with my weight loss because my husband is working SO much and isn't home to watch Syd while I jog. Aaaaaaand my jogging stoller has a popped tire. Geez! Maybe I can drop Syd off somewhere early in the AM and jog on someone else's street!

Day 36 - Pictures of The Daily Grind

I always go to Winco for my veggies. Picture a Super Wal-Mart with 90% food and 100% less teeth. True, my chances of contracting head lice go way up by shopping there, but luckily the fruit and vegetable section is usually empty! Now, the junk food sections are a different story....

All kidding aside, the prices REALLY can't be beat. I spend $19.38 for two days of food. That's $9.69 per day! Joe stated that the average juicer spends about $14 per day. I'm definitely getting enough to eat, so it must mean that Winco is a win-win!

My morning fruit breakfast. The only thing I switch out is the nectarine (I usually grab whatever is on sale, like plums, peaches or similar).

My daily veggie intake. This is enough for the entire day, including lots of water and tea.

I always strain my drinks! Nothing grosses my out more than getting a chunk of unkown SOMETHING in my mouth (*ahem*... JAMBA JUICE).

The fruit usually fills this mug (plus some), but I started chugging before I remembered I was supposed to take a picture!

My "drop cloth". The juicier the veg, the more colorful my walls become.

Green GOLD!


Soup Du Jour!

PRICE BREAKDOWN (for one day of juicing). It obviously varies slightly from time to time for the items priced by weight:

JalapeƱo (did you know it's actually a fruit? Cool!): $0.07
Spinach bunch: $1.38
Kale bunch: $1.28
Celery: $0.24
Carrots: $0.47
Hot House tomatoes: $0.97
Apples: $0.74
Cucumber: $0.68
Strawberries: $2.98
Nectarine: $0.88

Day's Total to fill my belly: $9.69

Day 36

I'm going to try and take some pictures step-by-step of my juice preparation, just in case anyone wants to see my main recipe and how much juice is produced!

Almost to day 40, YAY!

Day 33

Wow! The time keeps flying by, I keep forgetting to post entries! Although, I really have nothing new to post. :-)

I have been researching healthy eats at local restaurants (my family LOVES going out to eat, I need to be prepared!) and healthy recipes. I think I want my first dinner to be a variation of THIS.

Day 31

It was day 30 yesterday, and thank goodness I've kept busy! I had a booth at our local Vintage Barn Sale, so food was the last thing on my mind. The past few days have been CHAOS!

Still juicing, still going strong, still feeling great!

Day 26

Although I miss the taste of comforting food, I do NOT miss bloating, heartburn, headaches, indigestion, discomfort, and tight clothing.

Day 24

My husband is going to be working on a new contracting job, so he'll be gone A LOT. Who will hold me accountable when I want a bag of popcorn at night?

This is going to be so tough...

Day 23

Weigh-in day! I'm down 13lbs since I've started the Reboot cleanse, and I feel fantastic! I'm not even halfway through, and my husband has already treated me to a new pair of beautiful linen pants (which I NEVER wear).

By 'treated' I meant we had some Kohl's cash to blow. :-)

These are the progress pictures so far, and they'll only get better from here! Juice on!
