Juice Detox

Holidays. They did me in this year. I’m talking, banana bread, cranberry bread, candy, shrimp dip, cake, cookies, wine…you name it. I probably ate it.

Hey, you gotta live a little right?

Anyhow, I lived and then decided I needed to detox. So this is what I did. A juice detox. It’s supposed to be a 3-day detox but honestly, I only did one day. CJ did it with me too which made it easier to stick to.

Off to the store we went.

Juice 1: Had it around 9 am when I woke up New Years Day. My favorite by far. Sweet and refreshing.

IMG_20140101_110134Juice 3: Lunch around 1 15 pm. Well this is what went into it. We actually heated it up and ate it as a soup. It was okay.

IMG_20140101_133601Juice 4: 3 45 pm this one was pretty good. It tasted very similar to the Green Machine.

Overall, it was very refreshing. It refocused my mind and body to get back on the healthy eating plan. This is what I wanted most. To refocus. I lost 2 lbs (mostly of water) and felt completely refreshed. I actually didn’t feel tired or irritable. I was only actually hungry once (between the 1st and 2nd juice).

If you do all three days…you are superman/woman. Seriously. I don’t know if I could do all three days. Haha I love to eat WAY too much.
