Day 2, Mean Green!

Compared to yesterday, today is heaven! I woke up still wanting to be under the covers, but that is only because I stayed up late studying for a math test.

When I did get out of bed I felt...good! It was weird, but usually when I wake up I feel stiff and my feet feel tight, but today I bounded out of bed. Sometimes I have to keep my eyes closed for a while after waking up (I have a really hard time with it obviously) but today I just didn't! Up was up! Loved that!

Needless to say, I pretty much failed my test. Yup. I really did this time. I didn't go to Chemistry class downtown either. I had a really bad headache after class so I decided to give myself a break, went home and took a hot shower and a NAP!

My juicer came today, and I made my first drink. It's called the Mean Green Juice.
This was actually really tasty! The ingredients include a cucumber, 4 celery stalks, spinach (they used kale in the movie but I don't have anymore!), lemon, and ginger! It was actually tastier than I thought it was going to be. The lemon and ginger really brightened it up and it tasted clean and I loved it. Plus it made a huge thing of juice so it took me a good 30 minutes to drink it all. When I get to the juice only part of the Reboot on Sunday, I'll be drinking lots of these juices!

Which brings me to tell you I (once again obviously) got my juicer today!
This thing is so awesome, I was REALLY impressed. The juice was so good, and completely emulsified. The clean up was so easy, especially since Marc did it LOL. I can't wait to use it again! Maybe I'll make a video? Would you guys like that? I think I am going to go to a fruit market on Friday so be looking for it!

So overall feelings and food lists for the day:
Weight- No weigh in
Pants- Wore yoga pants, but stomach looked much more "tight" in the mirror.
Mood- Better, not perfect. A little more grouchy to Marc today :/
Other- I craved Boozed up Maraschino cherries today, weird!
Food List-
1/2 Cantaloupe
2 Small Bananas
French onion Soup with Cabbage and Carrots (caramelize onions, add water, cabbage, carrots, garlic, S&P) This was really good, I made it up!
Mean Green Juice
If I'm still hungry I'll have half a bag of broccoli tonight.

Let's see if I can conquer this mountain they call day 3!!!

I was starving from fasting for Ash Wednesday today and I still wouldn't shovel in any vegetables! I had a juicer from QVC many years ago and the screen was such a pain in the ass to clean! Ask Marc if he had any trouble with it!

I'll be sure to ask him! With you fast, do you eat anything, or is it like mine where you eat some thing but not other things?

I'm glad you like your juicer. If I had room I might get one. I wish they made a mini size for people with no countertop or storage space.

Oh yeah, do you have an RSS feed? I was wondering why I hadn't heard anything from you post wise and then saw all of these posts I miss when I came over! I want to subscribe if you do so I don't miss another post on this fasting adventure!

Czesia said...

The Mrs...what is an RSS feed?!?!??!

Fit Mom said...

ok I would love to see a video on the juicer and also how easy the clean up is...LOL. I really want a juicer and my birthday is coming up. This may be the ticket!

And who doesnt love boozed up cherries???

Czesia said...

I'll make a video ASAP!!!

Fit Mom said...

Well dont stay up all night making the video on account of me...LOL.

Czesia said...

HA! I will try to make one Friday morning! <3

It's that little kind of sound wave looking icon you see on people's blogs that say "subscribe by RSS feed." It will allow people to get notifications in their Google readers or on their home pages when you've posted.

It's an available widget on your Blogger options when you edit your layout. If you go to the DESIGN tab in your dashboard, click ADD A GADGET, then scroll until you see SUBSCRIPTION LINKS and click the + sign to add it into your sidebar. Then we can get our Chet fix whenever you post! :)

Aww The Mrs. THANK YOU! I'll get right on it!

I lovvveeeee juice, even weird ones, so I would probablly love this...other than the fact that fruits and veggies are so expensive. lol. I would love to get a juicer. I'm still working on getting a food processor. It's amazing what your body does when it starts working against caffeine withdrawel..once you get past this you will feel even better! How about I wanted to try that crazy lemon detox thing until I read how dangerous it was haha...cleansing out toxins is a good thing though, I think.

Czesia said...

I think I'm already one day less addicted to coffee LOL! I'm probably going to make a post tomorrow about where I want to go food wise after the Reboot. You are so right, my grocery bills are really high right now but I hope a visit to a fruit market will bring the prices down.

I love this juice, but I add a teaspoon of honey to make it sweeter.
