Breakfast of champions
Hello from the land of liquid veggies and fruits!
As the first day of this fast/ detox comes to an end, I am happy to report I have survived and stayed on plan..- ALL DAY.
I am not going to lie.. I had my moments when I wanted to toss “the juice” across my office and run for the giant bowl of tiny candy bars in the lobby.
I DIDN’T do it…but I WANTED TO.
This morning my breakfast consisted of: Baby spinach, carrots, celery, cucumbers, pineapple, banana, green apples mixed with a healthy dose of ice and filtered water. I drank the entire 24 ounces. Needless to say I had a full tummy.
Throughout the day I continued to fill my juice glass with water about 7 times.
I got hungry again around 11a.m. I had made an additional 16 ounces of my breakfast blend and put it in a cleaned out peanut butter glass jar. I went in to the kitchen and took a good 2-3 sips then put it back. That did the trick until close to 1p.m.
Thankfully, I work very close to home. During my lunch hour I ran home and made another batch of juice. ( I finished up my peanut butter jar of breakfast blend while juicing batch #2.)- “Oprah calls that multi- tasking” (Any idea what movie THAT line is from??)
Answer: SWEET. HOME. ALABAMA.
My afternoon batch consisted of: Spinach, butter lettuce, cucumber, yellow bell pepper, red bell pepper, green apple, pineapple and banana and strawberries. I added a bunch of ice and water as well.
I bottled it up in a 32 ounce mason jar and filled my peanut butter jar back up as well.
Back to work I went. I continued with my water and drank another 18 ounces of juice.
I have to admit, the SMELL of the peppers was a HUGE turn off- but I couldn’t actually TASTE them.
There was a lot of MIND OVER MATTER. I also had to keep in mind the main reason behind this FAST and detox.
My hubby has been wonderful and very encouraging. He sent me texts off and on all day long. THE COOLEST part of the day was when I got to work this morning, I looked down at my phone and had gotten a text from a friend with this scripture:
“But he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. ” 2 Corinthians
Now that is a good motivational scripture to keep ones focus in check.
Hubby and I went and worked out tonight. Overall, I did pretty good but had to modify a few things due to being a little light headed (because of the lacking on the protein.) It’s all part of the process.
Have I mentioned, that I have seriously cool work out mates and trainers.
(I also got some seriously cool messages from a new friend encouraging me and offering me some great advice on the juicing journey.) I am diggin’ all the people God is putting in my hubby and I’s path during this time. It’s mind staggering and humbling!
I am finishing up my last 12 ounces of the green juice for the night. (Spinach, grapes and banana) then I am headed to the shower and bed.
Oh and YES, I am still taking ALL of my MNS C Advocare vitamins… just not the Spark.
See ya on the Random Side,
Aj Luck <3
