Day two of the juice cleanse is on! So far I’m feeling pretty good, but yesterday I ran 3.25 miles (I’m running a 5k on Saturday) and by the end I was NOT feeling very well. I’m not sure this juice cleanse provides enough calories (and possibly not enough protein) for such strenuous exercise. I think today I’ll just stick to a light workout.
Last night’s dinner was the first real challenge for me because before I made my juice, I cooked a huge pot of chili for Justin. OH MY GOSH it was ridiculously tempting. Luckily, I made enough chili for leftovers so I won’t have to cook again tonight and be tempted again.
I had to throw in a bunch of strawberries for something to chew. The juice was yummy but I just needed something “extra!”
My dinner juice consisted of:
-2 handfuls of spinach
-4-5 pieces of bok choy (kind of a mix between lettuce and celery if that makes sense at all)
Morning Beet Juice
My juice this morning consisted of:
-1/4 pineapple (half of what is shown)
-handful of kale
-2 large handfuls of spinach
-1 beet (peeled)
This juice is also really good but the beet kind of gives it what my husband calls “a dirt taste.” I have to agree that the beet significantly changes the taste but it was good variety to add! I had half the juice for breakfast and half for lunch with a banana and carrots as snacks. Tonight I want to try a juice with lots of greens–we’ll see how that goes. I’m halfway through this juice cleanse!!
Today’s outfit was simple with a touch of sparkle!
