Changes and a Juicing Recipe

Fitness and weight loss is never something I really wanted to write about. Living healthy, yes, but not weight loss. It's a difficult part of me to share. The fact is, I'm embarrassed of my weight and try to hid it. Why would I want to publish it? I'm laughing to myself now. I'm hoping that maybe if I do publish it then it will start to be a lifestyle change I really need.

I do this all the time. I say I will go on this plan or workout more. I set a goal for myself and I get some good momentum going. Then something falls apart and I'm throwing in the towel. This time, it was my period. Yeah that thing that comes regularly once a month and last several days. I didn't remember it being this bad before I had children but it really sucks. I feel like my whole body is drained, my joints ache all over and I feel like I gained ten pounds. It's enough to knock me off track and then I'm back where I started.

It's really time to make the change. The lifestyle change. The hubby and I really want to try for another child but with the complications from the last, It's important that I make some changes. You might be reading a lot more of these posts because I need to start consuming myself with it otherwise this will never happen.

Obsessing is what I do best!

About two months ago I started the Fast Metabolism diet. It actually worked pretty well and I did drop some decent weight. Then the four weeks was up and I thought "I'll just have a cheat week and get back at it". Right, like I needed a whole week to cheat. I never did get back at it. The problem with these "cheats" is that they always throw me back into my food addiction and I literally take a month to work myself out of it.

Moderation never works out for me.

Last month I had surgery on my hand and it's not really back to where it should be. I'm bummed that I still can't do yoga. It just hurts too much. I was told recovery would only be a couple weeks because it was non-invasive but looks like I have a couple more to go.


So... It's time to

  • Pull out the old trusty Breville and get juicing
  • Get moving on my stationary bike
  • Work in those weights
  • Menu plan and The Fast Metabolism Diet

Try some of these.....

This recipe is really simple and is a great morning pick me up! Pineapple is one of my favorite things to juice!


2 oranges peeled

2 cucumbers

2 cups of fresh pineapple

Juice on!

The Skinny on Juicing

We have been in our new home now for about a week and I have barely unpacked!!! I feel the mountains of bags and boxes, which I've realized I am not a very good packer or unpacker, have taken over my life!! One of the first things that I was delighted to dust off was my Breville Juicer!!!

A year ago, I attempted the juice fast by Joe the Juicer. That was the most mind crazing diet I have ever attempted and also the best I have ever felt. Here's the skinny on juicing....

I thought I would share a few of my favorite juice recipes to start your morning right!

Here is one from the 


that I absolutely love... Have I told you about my obsession for beet juice. I hate eating beets, but for some reason I love the earthy taste in liquid form!

It's called

Bright Pink-A-Licious Juice!


By Kelly from

Nosh and Nourish



1 – 2 

 small b

eets (beetroot), peeled

4 carrots

1 orange, peeled

1 sweet potato, peeled

1/2 lemon, peeled 


1.) Wash all ingredients well.

2.) Peel the beets, lemon, oranges and sweet potatoes.

3.) Cut the fruits and veggies into pieces small enough to fit through your juicer chute.

4.) Juice all produce and enjoy over ice.

 I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do!!!

P.S. I always recommend using only


fruits and vegetables when juicing. It defeats the purpose.

Winter Blues and Juicing

I despise the winter. I hate the cold and the life outside is so depressing. I clearly don't get a long with this season in the north. I'm sitting here, watching another real estate show in some beautiful Hawaiian location, just wishing for some warm weather and flip flops! Good thing we had our Disney Vacation last week!! Pictures are coming!!

I have been on a juicing diet. Took a break for the holiday's and starting back up full gear for the new year! I know, another resolution.. but really I am going to get healthy and fit for 2013! I will be at my goal health by the time I turn 30 in October!!!

A great way to beat the winter blues is have a extra fresh and healthy juice! I like to start my mornings with more of a fruit than veggie ratio. The sugar gives me a jump start for the morning and replaces the need for coffee! This one is a good balance!
