Taking the day off from exercise for 'recovery'. Want to go but the arms are really sore and so is my behind.
Not much else to report except my blood pressure has dropped over the last month... Was around 144/95 and now it's around 125/77.
Time to go turn on some light classical with a hint of rain and go to sleep a bit earlier than normal for me.
Weight: 264lbs (unofficial) *Note: Cumulative loss of 40lbs!
Consumed: Mean Green, Carrot-lime, Pineapple, some celery, and lightly salted cucumber.

Anyway, it was a good day, drank more juice and ate less solid raw foods. Trying to ween myself of of these delicious Pink Lady Apples is pretty hard though...
**On a side note, I experimented with some tomatoes and sweet onion today in the juicer. I will most likely not be doing that again anytime soon lol**
Weight: 265lbs (unofficial)
Consumed: Carrot-Lime blend, Naked Juice, 2 Apples, 1 Banana, and some fresh pineapple juice.

An observation I've made is that since I've started working out my weight hasn't really changed (for the last week or so). I remember from the last time I lost weight the same thing seemed to happen... 2 weeks and not a pound dropped.... but after that it started coming off again. So, not worried about that and not going to let it get me down. I'm still on the good track and feeling better every day.
Weight: 266 (unofficial)
Consumed: The usual suspects. Probably too much ranch with the salad and broccoli though.

1 bag worth of carrots
and some ginger
It's pretty good and I will save the rest for the morning.
Weight: 266lbs (unofficial)
Consumed: Carrot drink, couple apples, a couple kiwis, a banana, a salad, and a large head of broccoli.

Sorry for my absence the last couple days.. but both recovering from the kidney stone and busy-ness has kept me pretty occupied.
Been pretty good and will be meeting up with Brian later today (Sunday) to record our 30-DAY success video!
More to come later!
Consumed: variety of things including my new favorite carrot-based juice and salads galore

I had a salad and a couple apples today since it was midday and I had no juice and felt hungry. Seemed like the right thing to do. I also picked up a gallon jug of water from Publix and now I know for sure that I got my 128 ounces of water today! lol
I just got back from the awesome new community gym where I outdid myself from yesterday. I was only there for 50 minutes compared to the hour.... but I got the treadmill up to 5mph and kept at it with a steady jog for a few minutes. It was hard and the asthma started to creep up but felt good to move that fast again.
I've also been checking my BP lately with one of those fancy CVS manual sphygmomanometers (aka blood pressure checker) and it's nice to see my pressure drop a bit after a workout. Normally it's pretty high- ranging around the 130/90 - 145/95 range at rest... and now it's hovering around 125/85. It's not much, but I feel more relaxed and I'm going to link the two together.
Might even go to bed at a reasonable hour tonight.
Weight: 268lbs (unofficial)
Consumed: Water, Juice, Water, Salad/Apples, Water, Juice, and more water.

Had a pretty good day today and it really felt good to get encouraging words from the folks that noticed my change in appearance since the beginning of this thing. It's stuff like that, my bud Brian, and my own desire to hone my perseverance -and- prove to myself that "I can do it!". I also upped the ante this afternoon when I got home from work and hit the gym for an hour of pretty intense walking with 30lbs worth of hand weights. It was 'enlightening' to just feel again what I was carrying around every day just a few weeks ago.
Thanks to everyone who's chimed in and communicated in some way with us! We hope to help spread the awesomeness of the 'Reboot Revolution' and the opportunity for anyone in any situation to embrace a life-changing through it! Juice on!
Weight: 267.6 (unofficial)
Consumed: Same as always lol.

Anyway.. another day of not eating as much as I should. Just haven't been hungry to be honest. I just stop by Kroger to grab some fruit when I get hungry and that's about it. I worry I'm not consuming enough food as I should... but I'm gonna just stick with my gut feeling (pun intended) on this one.
Official Weigh-in tomorrow...
Consumed: Couple apples, some carrots, a banana, and a small salad.
Weight: 271.4 (unofficial)

Check it out here: DAY 17 - Juice Fast/Weight Loss
Finally finished the video from this weekend... it's a whole lot longer than we initially anticipated. It was over an hour lol. So today went pretty good except I strayed a slight bit and ate too much tonight. It was salad... but I noticed that I was continuing to eat even after I was full. This is the kind of thing that got me where I am today. I will most likely gain weight from today's venture to the darkside... but I can't let that keep me down folks.
It's back on track for tomorrow! I give you my word!
Thanks to everyone for their support and comments, I know I can speak for both Brian and I that it helps encourage us and keep us going through this new life journey to healthier living.
Weight: 276.5 (unofficial)
Consumed: Lean Green juice I threw together last night, a small bowl of fruit this morning, and way too much salad... 3 bowls worth... at least... :(
Got some juice for tomorrow (today actually lol) and some fruits to get me through.
Weight: 273lbs (unofficial)
Consumed: Bunch of fruit and a salad
Monday, September 5, 2011
Yes, I know I'm late with the update... Fell asleep last night and been fairly lazy today lol.
Anyway... The day went well and getting to drink juice again this weekend was nice. Felt good to take a nice day to go to church and rest for the remainder of the day.
Consumed: Brian's custom carrot and lemon blend juice, some salad, kiwis and broccoli.

Day 15! One quarter the way through! So.... Today went pretty good I've gotta say. Got to juice all day today which was nice, and, got enough juice for tomorrow with plans to juice it up on Monday as well since it's Labor Day and I won't have to go home yet.
Went to the Super H Mart this morning and picked up a bunch of good greens and fruits. After that Brian and I headed to my ma's home to juice up a batch of our new blend 'Lean Green' before heading down to the lake for an hour of swimming.
Finishing the day on a positive note! We shot a new video... But will probably shoot an additional piece on Monday for the holiday and get that edited and on YouTube that night if all goes well.
Weight: 280 (OFFICIAL)
