Staying Juicy!

“FOOD”

I put food in quotes because I’ve been on a juice cleanse for the past three days!

It’s been a very easy going 3 days, to be honest.  It’s been way too long since I’ve done one, and since going back to school my eating and drinking habits have gone to hell and I managed to find a few pounds I thought I lost a decade ago.

I decided that a reset was in order, and planned this fast for mid-week.  I like weekdays vs weekends since you’re so busy at work and there are fewer food distractions.  I had plenty of energy and, aside from the various juices, also had tons of water.  I averaged 220 ounces of water per day.

I did a blend of juices I made myself and some I had shipped from Jus.  All told, yummy and I feel wonderful!  A friend in Kenya did it with me too!  It was nice to have another soul doing this at the same time.

called booster shots - straight up (which is crazy) or dilute in water, which is what I did

I’m considering migrating to a smoothie fast for 3 days to get a deeper reset.  Well see, but will keep ya posted.

Speaking of smoothies, the whole fam is joining the #smoothieselfie movement!

even R joined in!  I made her an Apple Jack smoothie (coconut milk, banana, apple, date, cinnamon) and she loved it!

FITNESS

Strenuous fitness while on a cleanse is a pretty poor idea.  I hit up a lovely gentle/restorative class Wednesday night.  Thursday was a bad day (not the cleanse – work), so I pretty much got through the day until I could go to bed!  Today I went hiking at the state park with my youngest daughter and the pups.  I physically feel fine, and by today I felt mentally better to.

LIFE

Not going into too much here.  Been a rough week, but you know what.  They happen.  And what matters is how you move forward, and that’s what I’m going to do.  I will focus on the loves in my life (my husband and kids, friends, and school) and the rest is what it is.

Speaking of my studies.  She’s back!  Ginny, my #fluffystudybuddy

I am a 43 year old busy career mom & full time student who is attempting to find her inner athlete, be a vegan in a non-vegan household, and find a way to balance it all without going crazy! I love to cook, read, run, do yoga, travel, and learn as many new things as I can - which often gets me in trouble.... I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.
