What weight loss!!
I have thrown my weight loss efforts to the curb! I had no desire to do anything about it. I ate, gorged on sugar, developed a pot belly and have hardly exercised these past few months. Now I want to get back on track. I hate my belly!!! Its been over a week that I have avoided sugary foods. I am a sugar addict who cannot stop once I start. So the only way is to avoid it completely.
I want to get back to the gym and make another effort to run a race maybe a 5K or a 10K! Most importantly, I want to be able to balance going to the gym and everything else that I need to do. I have not done it so far.
From Wednesday I want to be at the gym at 5:00AM or 5:30AM. I also want to go to the gym 4 days a week.
I will let you know if I have been able to do it this coming week.

OK! Happy New year! I am going to lose another 20 lbs this year! I am here to talk about my weight. It is creeping back up and I am generally not too concerned EXCEPT when I have to get ready and wear something decent to go out!
But my brain knows this is no good at all.
I am going to have to jump back on that live healthy wagon before it is too late.
Let me pat myself on the back for losing 20Lbs last year and keeping that off.
I had lost more but did not keep that off.
Steps to lose weight this year
* Go to gym/work out at home or go to bootcamp that I signed up for on but have not yet redeemed!
* Stop eating past 7:00PM
*Cut back on bread and other unnecessary carbs like ice cream!
* Think about health and being there for my kids.

All the best to you if you are reading this blog.

Time to get out of this funk!

OK...I cannot seem to exercise for the life of me...I want to sometimes but I am mostly not motivated. AAAAAAHHHHHHHHhh!
I want to start going back to the gym and I have countless excuses for not going...My weight is creeping back up and now I look pregnant again!
I will weigh myself and post a picture of my current weight maybe tmrw.
The intention is to finish the year healthy at a weight of 185 lbs!

Whats happenin?

Saturday,Sunday and Monday I went back to solid foods. Tuesday I am once again drinking juices and having a vegan meal for dinner such as lentil soup, brown rice, mangoes. Looks like I will be travelling to India coming Tuesday and so I will not be on the juice feast...just not practical while travelling esp with two little ones. I hope to exercise while I am there and also keep a check on my carb intake.

Day 6

My juice fast has been going well. Yesterday I had an evening meal of 2 cups of lentil soup and 2 hard boiled eggs. In the interest of full disclosure I also had two Klondike bars!! Not the best choice but ice cream is a weakness especially the kind that has a hard chocolate shell surrounding it!
What was my weight today morning right out of bed?

This fast/feast has not disappointed and I can imagine those who are on an exclusive juice feast will lose a lot more.

Day 4 and still at it

OK. So after day 1 I modified my juice feast a little. I added some lentil soup for dinner because I realized that I was not producing enough milk for my baby. Yesterday I had lentil soup again for dinner+ 2 hard boiled eggs. I think I am making sufficient milk now. Also when I remember I add some fenugreek powder to my juice.
Juicing is going well. Today morning my weight was 206.8. That is an encouraging change for me.
The only thing I buy organic are the apples. I hope to keep seeing changes.

Day 1 was successful!

It was not the easiest thing to prepare lunch and dinner for the fam and resist eating any of that. Also I am still nursing my youngest one and I was concerned the whole day whether I would be producing enough milk. I think she was ok. I will be adding some Fenugreek to my juices today to help with milk production.
I had no coffee, no tea, no solids at all!
My weight yesterday morning out of bed was:

I have a picture of the stuff I juiced for my first juice :
Mango, Cucumbers, Apple, Carrots.
Throughout the day I juiced Collards, Parsley, Cilantro, Watermelon, Cucumbers, A bag of carrots, Mangoes, 3/4 Avocado, Another apple, 1 Tomato.
This is not a walk in the park. Ofcourse I go to the bathroom a lot more frequently and I do have some mild headache today morning which I understand is expected.
I am continuing on today. How many days I go will be determined by how I feel each day. It is one day at a time.
I was inspired by the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.
