Its day 4 and I am feeling great! Last night was a little tough but I managed. I was smart last night and made all my breakfast juice so I wouldnt have to wake up at the butt crack of dawn and make it and be super grumpy! Yesterday was tough! I only got up just in time to make breakfast slurp, so 3 jars came with me to work. Those lasted till about noon and then my tummy was a grumbling! But, I didnt want to go home and juice because Joe was fast asleep. See the thing is we work opposite shifts every other week so its kind of tough but we manage. Its a whooping -22 degrees this morning with the cold blowing wind!
The fruits and veggies are draining our accounts which is making it somewhat tough to keep going. Between Joe and myself we have spent almost if not more than $500! Its insane. The other night I came home with cucumbers, carrots, cabbage, red peppers, and apples and it was $65 and thats cheap because I bought it at the little farmers market here. Every other night we are forced to go and shop and drop a hundred easy. But who said health and wellness came easy right?
I have been trying to exercise on our new rowing machine, which by the way is awesome. But, my metabolism is so quick these juices run right through my system like coffee. By the time I am home, juiced up and ready to work out Im hitting the restroom already. My feet are itching to start training for the half marathon but I dont think I have enough energy to burn off working out. I tried the rower the other night and had to stop after about 5 minutes, I started getting dizzy. I guess I will just wait to start working out again.
The longer I think about juice fasting the more cooking ideas that I come up with. My freezer is loaded with moose meat, caribou, and salmon and they are all calling my name. This juice fast has been great so far, and the juicer is awesome! Breville all the way! I am managing to keep off those 10 pounds, and Joe is actually down now 15 pounds. Its an amazing feeling, I almost feel comfortable in my skin now to just get toned and I will feel awesome!
Anyhoots, I will post photos later I dont have wifi here at my work which is bananas but I manage. Have a great day!

Day 4 is down the drain, and ready to conquer the next 6 long, tough days! We are running low on our supply so thank goodness the Farmers Market is open tomorrow so we can restock on veggies & fruits! We spent the evening at the Warrior Dome and watched some exciting, close basketball games. JV Warrior boys defeated the Napaskiak Hawks by 1 measly point but they did it! And our Warrior varsity girls just barely were defeated by the Newhalen Malamute girls, it was a very close and exciting game. Both teams put up an excellent effort!
Now that I am home, feet up and I am ready to relax. But to keep me happy and full I must get the energy to make some delcious dinner juice! Have a great evening! Day 4 is down the poop chute!
