This morning I weighed in at 158.5. Yup I gained some weight over the weekend. I am blaming it on salt and Aunt Flo. Dont worry though...this will come down by the end of the week BECAUSE today is:
Day 1 of my Veggie/Fruit diet.
I plan on doing this for a week (so until next Tuesday) but I may extend it depending on how it goes.
This morning was excellent. I started off with one of my normal smoothies made out of my stockpile of frozen fruit.
My morning smoothie was frozen papaya, frozen mango, a huge handful of spinach, water and a banana. Yummy!
I was also thinking ahead and yesterday started to dehydrate kiwi, banana, pineapple and apples. So I have a huge bowlful of dried fruit to munch on too.
After playgroup today, I took the kids to a run to Meijer. My entire cart (well ok 94%) was full of fruits and veggies...celery, baby carrots, spinach, grapefruit, watermelon, peaches, bananas, apples, kiwi, mangos, avocados, mint, beets, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries,ginger, kale, broccoli, purple cauliflower, rainbow chard...you name it, I bought it.
I finally have it all cleaned and in the fridge ready to go for me.
Yesterday I watched "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" on Hulu yesterday (thanks Czesia!). It was an awesome movie and very eye opening. Though I eat a ton of fruits and veggies now, I will be interested to see how I feel after this week is up and if I lose any weight at all.
So I googled the mean green smoothie that he makes in the movie for the recipe and found out that he has a website where you can plan your own reboot plus buy a juicer if you want to...
It is a pretty nice site. If you want to check it out you can: www.jointhereboot.com
They have different juice recipes AND smoothie recipes! Just what I need!
So for lunch I am having one from his site.
I am having the blackberry kiwi blend which is:
1 banana (I just realized I didnt put one in mine LOL)
1/2 comice pear
coconut water (I used coconut milk...I couldnt find coconut water)
and I used about 20 mint leaves
It is delicious and refreshing.
I am also having a big bowl of baby carrots and celery.
So far so good for the day!
Tonight I have the gym to go to. CX, Body Flow, and RPM. We will see how I feel tonight after the physical expenditure!!
Stay tuned to see how it goes for me this week!!!
