10 random thoughts on juicing

10 Random thoughts on juicing

1.) If you are juicing enough greens you will get about 10 grams of protein per 16 oz cup.
2.) I've been juicing oanges and strawberries and blending them in the ninja with a frozen banana and some flax meal for added fiber and protein.
3.) My juicer is a breville je900, I love it and suggest breville if you chose to get a juicer
4.) Joey is having some problems drinking the mostly veggie juices. I've been experimenting and have found two that I REALLY like. One has tons o' veggies and a bit of spicy V8 thrown in because I hate tomatoes so I won't juice them, but they are 'ok' (tolerable) in V8. I also REALLY like cucumber celery juice with a smidge of salt. Adding salt to any veggie based juice is going to up it's 'salad' flavor. ;) Also, joey is juicing mostly fruit early and then eating raw veggies at night for dinner this way he's not eating a ton of sugar and skimping on veggies. He just hates them juiced.
5.) I try and drink my mostly fruit based juices early in the day, this way I burn off the sugar as the day goes on and I drink mostly veg juices at night as to not go to sleep on a bunch of sugar. 
6.) I'm losing about 1-2 lbs a day.
7.) I recommend The Complete Book of Juicing for info, tips and recipes
8.) Fool around with the amounts and types of fruits/veg that you use, you're bound to find something you like.
9.) I didn't have a very bad detox, I eat healthy daily. If you live on junk your detox will most likely be a little more unpleasant than what I've reported here as mine.
10.) Don't forget to continue drinking lots of water!!!!!


  1. Thank you for writing about your juicing. I have a juicer and it's been sitting on my counter unused for about a month. You've gotten me back to it!!! :)

How Intuitive eating (did not) work for me

So I have spent roughly the last year and a half or more trying to lose weight by eating intuitively. I'm not really great at it. I have lost 30 lbs in a year and a half, it's moving at such a snails pace that I have finally decided that the only thing that works for me is tracking, and even though in my head I know I won't possibly do it forever, I have to go back to it.

So, Joey and I are tracking again, so far so good. It's only been a few days, but it at least hasn't been a struggle. I figure we will stay where we are calorie wise and after about a month and hopefully some loss (not being too focused on the scale though, it's been my downfall in the past) we can reduce our calories a little bit at a time.

I know this is the right thing to do, but I feel kind of down that I did so poorly with intuitive eating. Then again I probably wouldn't be fat if I were good at that sort of thing. :P Here's to being "On Plan." :D

Also, my job has finall…

I Was a Fat Bride

Our wedding pictures are the first thing you see when you walk into our home. 

Joey and I have been together for over 22 years. We've both gained and lost a lot of weight over the course of our relationship. Then we regained, and re-lost, you know how it goes. We got married on our 19 year anniversary, which is in March.  We had decided to get married just four months prior. So after what our friends teased was a 'brief 19 year courtship", we decided to just go ahead and do it. I know there are a million blogs and articles about losing weight for your wedding. This is not one of them. I had four months to lose weight. I don't really even remember what was going on, but I had NO desire to diet or attempt to lose weight and so I just...didn't. Joey lost a bit of weight so he could wear that fancy vest. I appreciate the effort, he looked handsome in it. :)

We thought we would never get married. We didn't see the point, we kind of still don't, and luckily, be…

Fluvia Lacerda....or, life's short, have fun.

So I just read this post about 'letting it all hang out' in the summer, by Fluvia Lacerda, a Brazilian plus size model. She. Is. Gorgeous.

First, let me say, my 'thinspiration' pics are always plus size models. I have no desire to be skinny. I want to ROCK my curves.

Anyhow, this is what the lovely Fluvia Lacerda looks like:

So she writes this blog post about how you should accept your fat body and don't care about the judgements from other people, etc, etc. I'm thinking to myself, she looks amazing, who is judging her? Then I google her and find a 'celebrity weight gain' site that is talking all kinds of smack on her 'chunky arms' and her 'expanding waistline'. I want to cry. Seriously. If you can look like THAT and still get insulted by these people (who are the equivilant to me, of frat boys yelling "fat bitch" at me from their porch) then I just hate this world. 
I ASPIRE to be as 'fat' and 'chunky' as Fluvia!…
