So, I did NOT complete 15 days of the juice fast. I ended up incorporating fruit and veggies on Friday last week, and I've decided to just eat raw until my body decides it needs something else. For now I'm still drinking juice every day, and eating raw foods. I am learning SO much about the raw lifestyle, it's been really an amazing experience so far. (raw = fruits, veggies (including raw juicing and raw smoothies) only peppered with SOME raw nuts and seeds. Selective additional things like EVOO or balsamic or cider apple vinegars and lots of seasonings like garlic, cinnamon, chili powder, etc.)
Me on the way to the grocery store:
What I bought. (yeah, boyyyyy):
Breaking my juice fast with a kiwi. YUM! It was the BEST kiwi ever.
We still love the juices, and even Dan gets into it. This was one of his own concoctions:
Sunday football snack - "chips" and fresh homemade salsa. (chopped tomato, cilantro, chive, red bell pepper and avocado. HOLY delicious.) ((chips are slices of zucchini!))
"pasta" made from spiralized zucchini and yellow squash - mixed with lots of black pepper and some chopped red bell pepper - tossed in a little EVOO. Delicious.
Skin continues to get better. Weighed in at 164.8 today (-8.2 lbs in sixteen days. So, I'm continuing the loss of about 1/2 pound a day, which is great.) Seventeen day difference in my face:
I DID throw out my back somehow yesterday. Big bummer there. Not enjoying the sore back, and advil is my friend for the moment. Lower back... pulled it while I was cleaning my studio yesterday. But I will say it's sparkly clean now!
I'm hosting a florist event on the 30th, and then it's time for MAJOR studio overhaul - I'm taking November to work on the studio and completely redesign it. Yay for staying busy!
Well, that's about it for now. Dan and I are going to go shopping for a new couch for our new place. Yay!
