Monday – Juice feasting day 8

The weekend went well and the juice feast continues. Basically my juices seem to have fallen into a set pattern and I am having the same everyday with the odd variation here and there. I had more orange based ones on Sunday as we were out for much of the day and they travel better than the others and last for longer.

Exercise over the weekend was :- gardening on saturday – digging over a new flower bed so pretty strenuous!! and a bike ride and yoga on Sunday.

Weight this morning was 132lbs – total lost so far 5lbs

Juices today have/will be:-

Orange, grapefruit, celery and spinach (4 oranges, 1 pink grapefruit, 6 sticks celery and 200g spinach)

Orange, apple and grapefruit (4 oranges, 1 pink grapefruit and 2 apples)

Carrot, apple, cucumber, spinach and lime (3 carrots, 3 apples, 100g spinach, 1/2 cucumber and 1 lime)

Pineapple, mango, kiwi and blueberry (1 pineapple, 1 mango, 2 kiwis handful blueberries)

Exercise today has been:-

Interval training with client x 1 hour

Full ashtanga yoga self practice x 90 mins

How I feel today:-

Really pleased to be on day 8 of a juice feast – something of a first for me. Also pleased that some of my ‘winter weight’ is finally coming off. Still have lots of energy and a lovely calm and mellow feeling.

Thanks for reading, happy juicing…………….

Wednesday – Day 17

It’s beginning to feel a bit like ground hog day with these fitness updates………so apologies for that. The truth is though that I am pretty much doing the same sort of exercises each day – treadmill, interval training and yoga and today has been no different.

The treadmill and interval training I had done and dusted by about 7am this morning and then I went out to do a yoga class. It is a full moon today and traditionally in Ashtanga yoga you wouldn’t practice on either a full or a new moon. So today’s class was more like a workshop and more stop/start but very productive nonetheless.

Food today has been:-

Green smoothie – oranges, grapefruit, celery, spinach and banana

Pineapple and mango juice x 2

Orange, grapefruit, cucumber and spinach juice

That’s all there is to report for today.

Thanks for reading………….
