Juice Fast Day 2

I survived another day on just juice !!!  I am feeling very pleased with myself.

I began with hot water and lemon followed by an ‘Un-Beet-able’ ; 1 apple, 1 beetroot, 3 carrots, a sliver of ginger and 3 huge handfuls of kale.colourful juice 3-9-13 It looks better than it tastes!pink or orange I was too busy working to even pour my coconut water so apart from a black coffee, I had nothing else all morning.

For lunch I made ‘Green lemonade’ ; 2 huge Swiss chard leaves, 3 handfuls of spinach, 1 apple, 1 cucumber, 2 sticks of celery and 1 lemon.green stuff 3-9-13 The chard leaves were so huge it made 2 large glassfuls of juice which is just as well as I didn’t manage my afternoon juice and had nothing else until nearly 8pm.green juice 3-9-13 In the evening I had ‘Red, White, Blue (and green)’ which was made with 1/4 of a watermelon, lots of kale and blueberries.  It came out quite a dark grey colour which was a bit off-puting but it tasted ok.  I was glad of the nourishment by then.watermelon, kale and blueberries I have actually under juiced today.  This was not intentional but circumstantial.  I was too busy working today to make all the juices I should have had.  In the evening I went out to collect Harvey from a lovely cricket and swimming party.  I was feeling hungry but managed to resist a glass of wine, twice, burgers and hot dogs which looked really good and even a platter of rocky road which was placed really close to me.  I was so relieved when it was all gone!

I have some gorgeous photos of all the children swimming together but I don’t like to put pictures of children up unless I ok it with their parents first.  So just to capture the beauty of the pool so many of us managed to enjoy today, here is one of Harvey.preparing to dive The technique needs more work but they couldn’t have had more fun and it was an absolute pleasure watching all those children enjoying the pool.the splash

I feel surprisingly well considering how few calories I have had today.  I am hungry and should probably have another juice but it is late and everything is clean and ready for the morning.  I am sure I will survive going to bed but feeling peckish.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
