Day 1 of Veggie/fruit Diet

First I have some most excellent news! Last night I went for a run around the neighborhood and I ran a full 10k!! Actually I ran a bit over (6.25 miles). I ran at an average of 5.5 mph and did the whole 10k in 1:08:14. I dont think that is bad for my first time out. Calories burned 778.

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:

frozen pineapple
frozen blackberries
1 kiwi
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!!!

  2. I'm interested in seeing how it goes at the gym! What do you eat to get your protein?

    1. nothing. LOL. Just what I wrote you I had for lunch. I did ok at the gym but I just wasnt as energized as normal. I made it thru though I thought I was going to die during RPM. No weights for me this week though so I should make it thru the week ok.
