So this is it. I present to you…my ‘BEFORE’ picture. (Neil loved me anyway, he is not a shallow guy). and now ladies and gents, the after…   So, did I quit? Well, I didn’t quit… but I didn’t continue either in a strictly liquid manner either. Last night we had some friends to dinner […]


7 days of Juicing – Day 6

i'm not so sure about you... 3:24pm the moment I realized that a nap wasn't going to happen and i'd better liquify something...

The benefits of juicing… according to this site (my experience in bold) 1.     I could think more clearly NOPE 2.     I lost a lot of weight – about a pound a day- not a chance 3.     I found myself full of energy- double nope 4.     I was more consistently positive and cheerful, no matter what come my […]

My husband made an interesting observation this morning. He said: “If I set my goal to Z and I make it to X, I think ‘Great! I’ll get to Y next time’. If you set your goal to Z and make it to X you feel that you have completely Failed.” After 24 hours of […]


7 days of Juice – Day 4

pineapple, kale and carrot

Very emotional and sad. Having trouble dealing with disappointments. Some people say that juicing brings this out… some say it’s the detoxing, some say it’s the emotional reliance that we have on food. I’m not sure what it is. I am also having trouble with clarity of thought and remembering things from my day. I […]

well, i did something bad. i turned my juicer on without screwing on the blade properly. well, it sounded ok at first. but then! clanking, scraping, and other nasty noises ensued. unfortunately it tore up the bottom portion of my feeder. this means that it doesn’t sit properly above the blade. this means that thin […]

IMG_0156

i started my day with carrot/apple/celery juice from yesterday. todays juice is cuc/kale/cel/granny smith apple. i have a few questions for those of you who have fasted before… what do you do when you exercise? the wisdom i have heard is that you need to consume protein after a run… which is hard when juicing. normally […]

[…]


Juicing Day 2

Okay so I’m not sure I can really say ‘juicing’ anymore because I just ate dinner. Last night was horrible and this morning my stomach was quite sensitive. I didn’t eat breakfast and couldn’t even bring myself to drink the juice for lunch. I kept trying it all afternoon, but it reminded me too much […]


Juicing: Day 1 – Disaster

**warning – a bit graphic ** Juice for Dinner Friday night Juice for breakfast and lunch on Saturday About mid-day I began having a growing dull headache and a feeling in my face throat area of a sickness coming on. Apparently this is actually common when juicing due to toxins coming out of your body. […]
