So i was slacking on the blogging. Forgive my TIRED SPIRIT!! yes Lawd!!
Anyway…I’ve been EXHAUSTED. When you aren’t consuming little/no solid food your body needs REST. Since I was doing mostly juice (i know you’re reading this like ma’am we’re you supposed to do all juice…i’ll get to that in a minute) these days, I was ready to lie down for bed around 8:30-9pm NIGHTLY. Workouts were not happening. I did do a little walking and arm, leg, and abs exercising but MAN was I tired.
So getting to this all juice thing. So I started 100% juice on Friday. I got through 95% of the day. When I got home, I kept drinking and drinking and drinking and my body was like “b****, I’M NOT PLAYING WITH YOU” lol. So i made a very small bowl of rice. I ate about half that and I was full and ready for bed. My body just needed something. I was READY for Saturday but i wasn’t PREPARED. I have a second job and i was working two assignments from 9-1 and 2-4. Needless to say, I drank most of my juice Friday so …I only had 12oz to take with me for this whole time. FAIL. By the time I was on my way to assignment number two…this was me…
So I ran by panera and grabbed a half salad and cup of soup. LIFESAVER!! I finished the day with only Juice. Sunday, I decided I needed to add back something because I was so tired. I woke up and made my breakfast to go so I could run errands. I had a nice apple cucumber juice with added protein!!
I made a nice pot of greens with steamed turnips to have for dinner. I continued to juice breakfast and lunch and have the greens for dinner on Monday. Tuesday (down 5.2lbs may I add) I went to the Dr. She suggested I definitely add more food back in especially protein and MORE carbs on days I start back doing spinning and do my NEW swimming lessons (yay me!!). So I’ve taken that advice and added baked Tilapia into the diet. I had that with greens on Tuesday night.
Yesterday was a two jobs day so I ate lunch. I had a few greens, pinto beans (homemade), and baked tilapia. I juiced breakfast and lunch!
Things are going well!! Hopefully this weight loss continues and I continue to feel good. Although I’m tired in the evenings, I’m definitely more awake during the day!!
