On my 3rd juice already

I’m on my 3rd juice already and I find them not to bad.  I have switched over to the green juices so it’s not all fruit anymore.  I don’t think I am at the point where I can leave out the fruit but maybe in a bit more time.  What I have been doing is having a juice when I am hungry and that seems to get me by.  I do think it’s going to be a chore making sure I have enough fresh produce in the house but I guess I will have to go shopping on the weekends.  I got enough produce for 7 juices so I have 4 more to go before I need to visit the store again.  Was kinda expensive tho… for 7 juices i I got $48 worth of produce.  So it’s about $7 per meal… which I guess is not that bad when you think about getting a meal out.

I’m also really REALLY loving Tovala!  The food is excellent…. all 3 of my meals this week were amazing. I am going to give them a call and see if they have a 7 day plan so I can have food for the entire week.

Anyway, my week off is almost at an end.  I didn’t get as much done as I was planing but I did get the house cleaned up quite a bit inside… I just didn’t do any of the repairs I was planing on because of the heat. All I have left to clean out is the basement and attic and each is in progress to some extent or another.  I am tossing out a ton of stuff so I am staging it in the garage or basement and taking it out on garbage night… I don’t want to deal with junk people again.  The guys Patricia got were not careful about the wood floors and walls.  They complained about everything and kept raising the price! I can do the same job for free over a few garbage nights without the same hassle and damage to the house. No job to big or to small my ass….


Started juicing today

I decided to start juicing again.  I made my first juice without greens to start to step into it again slowly.  It was somewhat good but it had grapefruit in it and i really don’t like grapefruit.  I figured that other ingredients would mask it but I was wrong.  On the plus side it was super easy to prep.  I will be juicing in the morning as a breakfast substitute and having a salad with chicken for lunch and then a nice Tovala or Blue Apron meal for dinner.  I think I should be able to keep the calories around 1200 for the day if I don’t snack.  I also got myself a gym membership and will try to fit an hour in 3 times a week if I can.  Thankfully it’s 24 hours so if I miss it in the morning I in theory should be able to go at night.

I have already lost some weight but I need to loose about 70 more pounds to be near my doctor recommended weight!  So I have a bit of a long journey ahead. I am hopeful that a lifestyle change will work for me as just going on a crazy diet usually doesn’t last for me.  Once I get back to eating cake I blow it!
