Day 4 I get up and my stomach is growling, I go to the gym …
This is it, weigh in day. I’ve already decided to carry on the juice diet for four more days. I don’t think I would lose much more weight because it isn’t in the” actual plan” but thought, why not, there’s more recipes.
I get to the gym, and instead of deciding to weigh myself early, I decide to do it after a workout. I start on the treadmill, and start off good, but half way through I start struggling. BUT a random gym rat who I don’t know, comes up to me, I’ve seen her around since I’ve been going but we never talked. She tells me that I’ve lost a lot of weight, and we start chatting. It gives me motivation to carry on hard, and strong. I finish my running, weigh myself and realise I’ve lost a stone in a week. I’m amazed. I also decide that, like the book says, I’m going to do the diet once a season. Not to lose weight per say, but to reboot my body and give it a good clean out.
The day is a blur because of work, but in between I’m trying out new juices. Most of which are good – Morning Magic, Simply Red, Totally Tropical Taste and Minty Beta Juice.
At the end of the day, I’m half and half about whether to do an evening session, and after much umming and ahhing, I decide I might as well, and carry on the hard work that I have done previously.
The rest of the week will look like this:
- Day 9 – Ice Mango, Athletes Elixir, 5 Portions, Kids Veggie Special
- Day 10 -Salad Juicem Cool as a Cucumber, Fruity Zest, Summer Smoothie
- Day 11 – Muesli Smoothie, 3 Seed Smoothie, Protein Power House, Passion 4 Juice
I probably wont update the twelfth day, which is when I actually start eating solid food again – and I’ll tell you something, I’m looking forward to it
