Surly there must be an easier way to zest lemons than by hand?  Bought a case of lemons to make limoncello. Took seven hours off and on to zest 176 of those suckers.  My hands are hurting and still cramping. Hope it was worth all the effort.  We shall know in a few months.

Jumped on the scale tonight and wasn’t pleased with what it had to say, 410!!! 53 and 410 are numbers that should never be used together. Anyway, I went for a walk. The temp was around 1,000 degrees and the humidity was 380 percent. I certainly sweat from the moment I walked out the door until I returned. Walked 1.66 miles and I am now feeling every single step in my feet!  The goal is to try and move my body every other day to start moving the scales in the right direction.

I’m so glad it’s OVER!  But at the same time I’m excited about January 7th and forward.  It will be much easier next time as I will eat veggies while juicing.  Psychologically, alone eating something will make it so much better.  Drumroll please….NOW FOR THE GRAND TOTALS.  I lost 15 pounds and my friend “Diedra” lost 12 pounds.  Not bad for ten days with no exercise.  When doing the “50/50 Life Juice” starting January 7th we will be adding in some kind of body movement with the juicing.  2013 may finally prove to be the year that we lose weight and keep it off.  I have to say, doing this with a “juice buddy,” a partner doing the exact same program concurrently, made it easier, more enjoyable and actually more educational.  We were able to compare notes on a daily basis.  We noticed some of the exact same symptoms.  At least we knew we weren’t crazy!  In any case this has been an overwhelmingly successful experiment.  The success has me for one, excited about this next year.

Now that the 10-Day’s are finished it’s time to start baking those wonderful Christmas treats.  I’m breaking out the big guns to bake in this year!

Day10

Until tomorrow…

SO ready for some regular food.  My friend “Deidra” and I decided to start adding vegetables back into or diets today.  We are continuing to juice but we will also eat vegetables today and tomorrow getting or stomachs ready for real food starting Tuesday.  We’ve also decided that the juicing starting January 7th will be accompanied with eating veggies while juicing at least three times per day.  We were talking about why not eat vegetables too?  In the movie “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead,” Joe Cross has a scene where he talks about the necessity of juicing as it would be impossible to eat as many vegetables to get all the nutrition we get from juicing.  Using that logic there’s no reason to avoid eating veggies or fruits.  We just have to make sure we don’t over do it on the fruits that are full of sugar.

Until tomorrow…

Day 8I woke up this morning about 8 with my stomach grumbling.  Took me about a half-hour to fall back to sleep.  Then at 11 when I woke up the rumbling was gone.  I’m still amazed that the hunger is just that and not horrible starvation pains.  After all, today is the 8th day without putting a single bite of food in my mouth.  I still don’t understand how this is possible.  If juicing can control hunger in this manner long-term then it’s the miracle that so many of us have been looking for.  We ALL owe Joe Cross and his film “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead,” a great big THANK YOU!  I highly recommend this juicing fast to anyone who simply wants to feel better or who has weight-loss goals in mind. I’ve decided instead of a 60-day or more juice fast starting in January I’m going to do 7-days juice fast, 7-days eating reasonably.  Let’s see how that goes.  My friend “Deidra” is going to do it with me too.  We plan our first week of juicing starting January 7th.

The above paragraph was written when I woke up today.  Today has been a really rough day.  Particularly for my friend Deidra.  She had to prepare a party for her child’s Birthday.  Can you imagine how hard it would be to not eat for 8-days straight and then have to prepare all these wonderful party foods that we all love so much?  I am so proud of her for making it.  We are two-days away from solid food.  We talked about stopping since are new goal is to do 7-days on and 7-days off of juicing.  But we decided against breaking our juice fast.  We’ll make it!  We have decided that the 7-days will be the way to go.  In fact, we’re going to juice fast January 7th through the 13th.  Then eat reasonably  the 14th through the 20th.  Then on the 21st we are going to to do a juice fast/eating only veggies hybrid fast.  This way we can compare them.

Until tomorrow…

Yesterday I was very hungry.  But even still, I wasn’t STARVING like on 99% of other diets.  I’m going to the grocery store today to get some Kale.  I’m thinking I wasn’t hungry when drinking Kale juice so keep your fingers crossed!  today is a beautiful day here in the mountains.  I would love to get out and take some pics but first I must go to the store and get some greens and fruits.

I’m completing my 7th full-day  of eating nothing and only juicing.  I can NOT believe it even possible.  In fact, this is the ONLY diet I’ve EVER been on where I wasn’t STARVING!  I HIGHLY recommend it!

If you open your double door refrigerator and this is what you see either Bugs Bunny has moved in OR you’re on a juice fast!

Until tomorrow…

I woke up in the middle of the night hungry.  Again, NOT STARVING but actually hungry with my stomach grumbling.  If I weren’t on the juice fast I would have most certainly gone to the kitchen and made my self an egg sandwich and a piece of toast with butter and jelly.  If I hadn’t immediately thought of the sandwich and toast when I woke up it could have been a million other things from a bowl of cereal to a fried-bologna sandwich.  Whatever I would have gotten up and eaten it would have been highly fattening and bad for me.  Instead I rolled over and went back to sleep.  When I woke up today, my mind wasn’t “razor-sharp” like it has been several days during the fast.  I know I’m losing weight because just 5 days into this fast I could already feel my clothes fitting me loser than when I started fasting.

Until tomorrow…
