Juice Fast Day 12

19 Aug

Today I’d like to start off with a few things that I’ve had to learn the hard way, so that maybe you won’t have to go through the same things.

Last night I made up my juices and headed off to work.  Little did I know that both, not one or the other, but both juices were so disgusting that I could hardly drink them.  In fact, what I was able to get down was out of sheer will power alone, not because I wanted to.  Also, I don’t recommend radicchio or sweet potatoes in juices.  I guess sometimes the adventurous part of me gets me into trouble once in a while.  So, after work I knew I needed to drink something but I really didn’t want to deal with juicing right before bed so I cheated a little.  I went to Safeway and about a Naked Green Monster and drank that before I went to bed.  I have to say, I didn’t really like it too much.  It has more of a smoothie texture than a juice texture and according to the bottle has pureed fruits rather than juiced.  So it was a pretty big cheat, but still staying with in the rules.  At least there aren’t any added preservatives or sugars, it’s all natural.  For a bottled juice/smoothie I guess that’s doing pretty good.

I was pleasantly surprised when I weighed in today!  I finally hit to 10lbs lost mark!  That was my initial goal.  I’ve actually lost 10.2lbs as of today, with a .8lb loss yesterday.  I’m down to 136.2 (which totally amazes me) and I’d really love to see 135 on the scale by day 15.  If I don’t, I’m not going to beat myself up too badly.  I still can’t believe I’ve lost 10.2lbs in 12 days, especially since I didn’t have a ton of weight to lose to start with.  Absolutely amazing!

So tonight I made sure to taste test my juices for work, they are both delicious!  No more cheating with Naked juices for me….at least not for another day.
