This Weekend, Day 4, 5, & 6

This weekend I spent some time giving cuddles to my love bug Masyn.

He's adorable!!

I was a little worried about going to my sister in laws house while being on the reboot but everything turned out fine! I juiced a huge papaya and pineapple (I went to a Mexican fruit market on Friday Morning and scored big on CHEAP produce!) Source
so I had fruit juice already made for snacks and breakfast. I had already made some spaghetti squash and tomato sauce with onions, garlic, and parsley so I was good for dinner the first night. The second day, I roasted some green beans, mashed half a head of cauliflower, and made some Kale chips. So while everyone was snacking from various things like sausage, cheese, pecans, and chocolate covered pretzels, I was eating right along with them from my Kale Chips! It really was okay. My family has been encouraging too which is a plus.

Today is the first day of the juicing only part of the reboot. For the next five days, until March 2nd I'm going to making lots of this...
Watermelon Pineapple on the left, Mean Green on the Right.

I am feeling okay so far, nothing to complain about! I wanted to make a video reviewing my juicer but I didn't have time. I'm sorry :(. I did, however, find a review that I agree with and thought you would enjoy!

My Hamilton Beach juicer is so awesome, clean up is a breeze, and I HIGHLY doubt you would regret buying this! For 60 bucks it's hard to beat (walmart website). I don't have a dishwasher, but like he said, it is dishwasher safe. I think it is easy enough just washing by hand. The strainer is the only part that you have to scrub but it comes with a brush, and scrubbing last 45-60 seconds at the most.

Weight Lost: 7lbs. The lowest I have EVER been since starting to lose weight in 2007. I'd get really close to this number on the scale and start eating badly again. I am so happy!
Pants: Feeling really comfortable, I wore them all weekend!
Mood: I feel awesome, really energetic. I didn't feel a significant craving until I came home and Marc was eating those microwaveable hamburgers. It didn't look so good, but it smelled AMAZING. I didn't give in of course. Who would after losing 7 lbs, and not starving?!
Other: Marc didn't come with me this weekend, this morning he saw me changing (sorry lol we ARE married!) and was shocked by how much weight I've lost. That felt really good :)

Onwards and upwards!

Here's the recipe for Mean Green:
Kale (I used spinach)

I added carrots and a red apple so mine looks a little on the swampy side LOL!

I know i'm so sorry :( My life gets ridiculous sometimes!
