We finally got apple juice for our liver and gallbladder flush which we will do Sunday. We found an organic one at Costco last night. Now we will add in a couple glasses of apple juice a day.
Work out was the Insanity Pure Cardio DVD.
Steal cut oats with fresh strawberries, blue berries and blackberries, flax meal, a touch of vanilla, honey and agave nectar.
Apple juice with Standard Process complete meal replacement. Carrot juice, peanut butter and almond butter. Raw sugar snap peas and a couple falafel balls.
Salad with spinach, green and red bell pepper, red onion, avocado, tomato, black beans with some non fat balsamic vinaigrette and an artichoke.
Juice Plus chocolate meal replacement made with apple juice with banana, frozen blue berries, spinach, vanilla and cocoa powder.
During this process we have been working on losing a few pounds. I tend to fluctuate in a 3 pound range, so I’m working my way back down. As a young girl I was overweight and was getting teased. Then in seventh grade I finally got tired of being teased and having to buy bigger pants all the time. This must have also been the time I started to notice boys. So, I started cutting back on what I ate and exercising. This is probably why perusing a degree in nutrition was so appealing!
Nels is also working on losing a few pounds. He was almost getting discouraged that he was not seeing any loss. Then I remind him we had been cutting back and on our cleansing diet for “ONLY” about a week. At the end of the first week he lost one pound, which is exactly what you want. One to two pounds per week is ideal. If you lose any more you are going to start losing muscle. Even when you know better it is easy to get frustrated, that’s why it is important to have someone to keep you accountable and stay focused with the end in mind.
