Reason to Loose Weight
So I can better fit into the desk at school.
I’m almost 25 and I feel like I’m in elementary school - true big kid who can’t fit in their desk. What happened to tables? This is college.
It’s three months til my 25th birthday and I’m still fat. I would like a happy birthday this year - nothing will change unless I do something. Duh.
Oh my lord…
It’s been six months since last I’ve written anything?! Why do I do this what is wrong with me?! Well - I’m back (again) I’m currently heading towards NYC for a work trip but will be staying on to visit friends. I will be doing A LOT of vegan eating while in there. Yes, everything I eat is vegan but in NYC there are so many awesome special vegan specific places! Planned stops - Dunwell Vegan Donuts - I haven’t eaten a donut in three years - so I have no shame! I’m also planning on going to Vaute Couture - they just just opened a store front in Williamsburg! Can’t
Today’s juice - made for me by my hubby!
4 red apples
4 green apples
This juice is super yummy - I’ve already taken a big gulp from it! It’s nice to end my juice fast with a yummy juice! I think in the future this might be part of my breakfast
Today’s juice - good for weight loss:
1 big yam
5 red apples
I added some filtered water to thin it out a bit.
This juice is high in vitamins A and C - drinking it is a great way to add fiber to your diet and satisfy your sweet tooth healthily!
faithfullyhealthy-deactivated20 asked: I LOVE your Vibrams!!! It always makes me smile a little more seeing somebody else who owns them, as well! :)
Dude I totally love them! I got them as my new running (jogging) shoes and have been breaking my feet in with them walking. I love them cause they’re just awesome and vegan and minimalist!
Even my feet have lost weight! These shoes fit much better and the Velcro strap goes further across now!
Monday Mornin’ Weigh-in!
Current weight: 214.2
That’s a loss of 8.8 pounds - meaning I’ve lost 20 pounds in two weeks!
The last time I was at this weight was THREE YEARS AGO and it was having been in the hospital for a month! It’s crazy thinking that I’m now back to where I was when I met my husband over two years ago (and I met him after having lost 40 pounds) - I was finally able to button up the shirt I wore on our first date. It’s amazing because I have a whole new wardrobe of clothes (that I didn’t have to go out and buy) because I kept all my size 14s because I knew one day I would be back. It feels good. I’m done yet of course but I feel happy.
However, I’m thinking of ending my juice fast of Tuesday and here’s why. On the 29th of this month I’m leaving for England for two weeks and I can’t take my juicer with me and my grandma of course doesn’t have one. When one breaks a fast one can’t just go back to eating normally (even though I did that last time - hence all the weight gain). Essentially my stomach has been “asleep” all this time and I need to reawaken my digestion. There are three phases to go through - which each last as long as half of the fasting time. If I have Tuesday be my last fasting day then I will have fasted for two complete weeks - which was my original goal when I started this the first time. Obviously I want to keep going with this since I’ve seen such great results but it’s not practical right now and I want to come off the fast properly and not mess up all the progress I’ve made thus far!
I also want to do a 5K on the 28th! First it’s time for a morning jaunt (of five miles) with the husband :)
Went to an organic cafe and got a juice made for me - ooh la la! My juice has apple, beet, carrot, celery, greens and wheatgrass! I chose it for the wheatgrass! Drinking it is making sitting in traffic to get home much more tollerable!
samsbalderdash-deactivated20120 asked: I like the juice bottles you use. Do they contain all your juice for the day? Will also be trying your recipes, they sound yummy! Congrats on the weight loss too!
Hey thanks! I’m just using an old “Naked” juice bottle (which is made from other bottles!). It holds 32 ounces of juice which is perfect for a days worth - though I’ve been noticing lately that I’ve been having a hard time drinking the whole thing by the end of the day - I think because my stomach must have shrunk. But I like making a day’s worth of juice In the morning in one go - 1 because I work full-time and 2 because then I don’t have to keep rewashing my juicer!
Today’s juice - can you guess what it is?!
Good for satisfying your appetite!
I think this jacket really shows my progress - I’m not even sucking in! Grrr I really wish I had bought it!
This is me at H&M wearing a size 14 dress - a first. Today I actually feel good about myself and think I look decent - I still have a ways to go but I’m feeling good about myself for the first time in a lonnngg time.
Today’s juice - another fav:
12 kiwis (peeled)
5 red apples
5 granny smith apples
Not all the juice fit in that glass of course - the rest is in the pitcher in the fridge. Today’s my first day off in 7 days so I’m being fancy and drinking out of a proper glass today :-)
