I went to our local Hy-Vee and bought some Naked Juice (my favorites are Green Machine & Mighty Mango) to get me through until the juicer arrives. I stuck to eating lighter healthy lunch and dinner meals (adding in veggies), focused on ridding my diet of sugar, coffee and processed foods and upped my water intake.
Overall, I feel great (who wouldn't after two days of migraines!)!! Giving up coffee has been the hardest, I am not sure I am ready to give that up completely--there is nothing like a good cup of coffee in the morning! My clothes are more comfortable, my skin is clearing up and I definitely have more energy. I decided I am going to allow myself to track my weight loss once a week, otherwise it becomes an obsession for me. I am happy to share that somewhere along the way four lbs. fell off!!
I haven't added in an exercise routine yet. Honestly, for me that might be the hardest component of this new lifestyle to make happen. No excuses, but I just need to find the time in my week to fit it in. The the little hiccups in my "plan" haven't even deterred me from pressing on and that makes me proud of my new "balanced" self!
