Yoga and Kiwi

Alrighty so today I did Yoga first thing followed by a hot shower. Great way to wake up!! Then I enjoyed a fresh fruit and spinach juice, snacked on a banana later in the day. lunch was a food version of my mean green juice a small salad comprised of spinach, lettuce, cucumber, snow peas, and kiwi!! With a fresh squeezed orange drizzle for the dressing.  And a table spoon of peanut butter until I can get to the store for chicken to grill.  I had a mean green juice for an afternoon snack and then for dinner grilled chicken with roasted carrots and sweet potato wedges. yumm. Key is small portions and juice before meal so you are full faster. Lots of water today 72oz+ !!

If there is anything I have learned so far from juicing it is that I feel WAY better/ healthier when doing it. And Fruit was meant to be mixed with vegetables :) They were born for it!!!

Hungry Day 3

Let's start with some baby photo love shall we??

Here is my crazy haired son 

And his big boy hair cut :)

He kisses everything, even gators he is wrastling haha

So as of this morning I have lost 4 lbs. Which is great! But i miss eating and I have had the Low blood sugar feeling for 3 days. My husband is a trooper and has held fast but HATES it. We are going to turn this juice fast into a juice feast!! We are going to still juice 2x a day but add in all those fruits and veggies in food form and some healthy protiens and grains. I don't think I can "diet" anymore but just adapt a healthy eating lifestyle. And for me that does include chewing my food!! haha

I will still be tracking my journey on here as I am still dedicated to losing weight and reversing my PCOS.

I am effective immidiately  actively trying to NOT get pregnant until I am in the peak health I can be. Maybe...Hopefully by this summer or fall I will feel fit enough and be cycling regularly to add to our family.

Jack Update: He took 3 steps yesterday!!!!!!!!! And he is amazing as usual. Saying momma dadda and nononono.  He is now 90th percentile for height and 50ish for weight.  He melts my heart.

He gives kisses (more like licks you) and hugs and high fives on demand! PeekABoo is one of his favorites! He is loving his walker and his doggies <3 nbsp="" p="">
I have a new found love for YOGA!!!!
A Jillian Michaels Dvd I am going to try out and  a dance dvd to try...
I have a new membership to a gym i am excited to try kickboxing, kettlebell, and get back into zumba and continue Yoga!!!

The UGLY truth

Weighed in this morning on DAY 1 of the 60 day Juice fast. The ugly (disgusting) truth is I am 248 lbs.


I had my husband take before pics that I will eventually share and some more fleshy ones that I will never share. But those are going to be my motivation. When I looked at what the back of me looks like in Le Buff I was like ok now I know where to go when I get a craving!!! One look and I won't be hungry anymore.
Tomorrow I will weigh in and hopefully post my first few juice pics but I am reserving posting the recipes until I get them right.

How am I feeling you ask??
Like ass...headache and it is 7pm and I am exhausted to the point of I am going to bed now. generally feeling crumby. But it will get better I know it!!! I am keeping on the juice fast!

Pre-Juice Organization

Today we did the Pre-Juice Groceries. I think I was actually sweating at every stores check out. I am convinced I won't spend this much every time I go. I think it is just because I don't know exactly what i need for recipes and which ones I will and won't like so I bought just about every fruit or veggie I saw and also focused on ones that help with my PCOS symptoms lowering insulin resistance acne and inflammation.

Here is the Loot ...                                                

And a few photos of my new Juicing area ...My fridge is packed to the brim and I also have a little mini fridge in the basement with 4 or 5 things in it. I am ready to be healthy!! Tomorrow is Day 1!

We are officially starting our 60 day juice fasting cleanse!! My PCOS symptoms are at an all time high right now and I need to do something to heal my looks like after the fast I am looking at a veganish rawish diet as my goal. I have done 2 days of research and am very very excited! At first it started as a way to kickoff the weight loss (which I am hoping it will do) but now it is more of a way to heal my body from the inside out and a bonus is the weight loss. In the  essence of honesty for others this blogging journey may help I will put it all out judgement...please.

Symptoms I would like to reverse...
Back Pain
Abdominal bloating, pain, and general discomfort
ovarian cysts
Lack of Menses
Hormonal imbalance leading to moodiness and anxiety
Dry skin

I am weighing in pre-fast tomorrow and taking photos which I am probably going to keep private which bothers me because when researching this the blogs i got the most from had photos. I am a very visual person and I want to share them for that reason but I know too many people in real life that follow my blog. 
If at the end I look like Barbie I might share them :) haha. 

My goal is to juice 100% because when i am given an inch in a diet i take a mile...of junk to avoid that I am going to try to go 100%. I am a bit worried about the insulin resistance and glucose levels with the fruit juices so I may add seeds for protein or chicken. we will see.

My husband is "going to do it with me as long as he can" So we will see how that goes haha.
I am also excited to share some juice with my Jack man because of the healing properties...and I may try to cook/bake with the pulp for the daycare kiddos for health purposes and to not be so wasteful. 

Things I am concerned about are cravings...and temptation with cooking for the kids all day. I am worried I wont make time for my exerscise I want to do everyday. I am nervous Jason will quit and I won't have that much needed support. 

All of my excitement WAAAYYY outways all the concerns. So heeerreee weee gooooo!!!!
