Day 2: Pineapple Paradise
I have to admit around five I started getting a little hungry stomach was rumbling a bit. I went in and made a Spinach, green apple, and carrot drink. Wow! I think that is going to be one of my favorites. It was Delish! And it completely stopped my tummy from rumbling and I no longer felt hungry. My sister asked me how I was feeling later that night and I told her I felt like Popeye! I can see why he loves his spinach, that stuff packs a punch I felt like I had just drank two cups of coffee without the side effects of the caffeine. I felt incredibly energized. The only down side was I was still awake at midnight. I am going to have to find a calming/sleepy time drink in my Juice Bible.
I woke up this morning about 4:30 am, and knew that if I wanted to I could pop right out of bed and start my day, but I didn't. I rolled back over and made myself go back to sleep. Slept till about 7:30 feeling pretty refreshed, sore but refreshed. My dreams didn't pull me out of sleep every few hours like they usually do. So I know I slept much better than I have in a long time.
Last night I made our breakfast drink for this morning, grapes, oranges, and strawberry. Put it in two thermoses one for Todd and one for me. I will tell you one thing... it was almost an instinct to pop a grape in my mouth as I was sitting there washing them. I didn't though I was good! This morning I was having a hankering for some pineapple this morning, so I flipped on the juicer and put in a whole pineapple (well cut small enough to fit through the juice feeder, skin and all) and added the pineapple to my juice. Yum, I am just missing an umbrella and a nice sunny beach. What a nice way to start the day.
I would like to take the time to thank everyone cheering me on through this. It is so nice having a pep squad! I know this would be so much harder without the support of my loved ones and friends! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Oh and as for the weight... I LOST 3lbs! Just in the first day! Not bad if I do say so myself. That is technically 7lbs since last week, but I am not counting the 4 I lost in my prep week. Going off of the starting weight of yesterday.
