Doin pretty good with the food and juicing although I fell of the wagon a couple days this week… one was because I was out of town for work and could have planned better…. onward and upward (well, as for the scale, downward I hope LOL)

I’ve also been planking as much as possible! It’s crazy how many muscles you use and especially your core!

I was pretty upset when I realized that every year I say the same thing…. get a plan and don’t follow through…. I think where I could be now if I had only stuck with it last year… But…. Now is the perfect time!

Wanna juice?

I used to juice.. and it quickly became a pain! It was a lot of work, a lot of produce and I had so little time… then I was turned on to the Nutribullet…

NutriBullet-fruit

all of the same  fab benefits and less than half the mess!! I so love this little machine!

securedownload (1)I’ve got a couple recipe books that came with it and they are super helpful, especially for finding out what fruits/veggies are good for what.. etc. but sometimes I just like to do my own thing…

A couple of rules I stick to:

  • start with half greens such as kale or spinach
  • half fruit
  • add water (and ice.. they are better cold!)
  • I add Vi-Trim Clear Control
  • lastly, my boosters… right now i’m stuck on gogi berries etc… super good antioxidant and so much more! Going to venture out soon and try chia seeds! 🙂
