“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

— Eleanor Roosevelt

Strong Start

Already up to a great start! I woke up and had half a lemon squeezed into a glass of water. I then went for a light workout. I came back and made this wonderful juice.

Here is the Workout of the Day:

  • Eight Count Body Builders – 3 sets of 10
  • Light Run/Walk – Ran a Lap, Walked a Lap

Juice 1 – Mean Green Juice

Phil’s Mean Green Juice – See Recipe



Juice 2 – Mean Green Juice

Had a bit of a problem with the . Since it is a centrifugal , some of the pulp buildup caused the whole thing to become unstable! The was bouncing all over the counter!!! Think of it as a small, unsteady washing machine that gets unbalanced. The juice pusher flew out of the like it was a volcano…juice spewed everywhere. I stopped, cleaned it out, and finished the juicing. I am still waiting for my new masticating   to arrive…I ordered it a week ago! Should be here in the next week. I will go over different kinds of s in another post.

My mental clarity is missing the caffeine and sugar from Coke. Energy level is okay, but I am chilling out for the rest of the day. Only two more juices to go, and a ton of water. My tummy is grumbling…

Juice 3 – Mean Green Juice

Okay…this one went more smoothly! No demons hiding inside the this time. The juice pusher stayed put and I could really smell the ginger as it was being transformed into this magical drink. Still have a bit of a weary head. I really want some coke. A cheeseburger sounds yummy, but would seriously throw a monkey wrench into this journey. I have had some great feedback from family and friends…thank you guys. Keep it coming.

Juice 4 – Mean Green Juice

Last juice down at 8:45 pm. Going to the grocery store to buy another days worth of juicing fodder! Trying to get to bed early.

Today was a great day. Certainly wanted to eat. I am drinking a gallon of water each day…it does not relieve any hunger, but I am sure it will help flush out the crap from my system. Speaking of crap…not much potty humor to report! I know some of you (you know who you are) will like those stories. I am sure the hunger will subside. I am ready for day two!

Late Night Grocery Trip

I just got back from going to the grocery store…had to buy more veggies! I have to admit, I walked into the grocery store and everything looked good. Damn Taco Bell was right next to the grocery store too. I kept my blinders on, went right to the produce section got what I needed and left. Got the supplies for 4 more Mean Green Juices for tomorrow!

The total for 4 Mean Green Juices…$15.19

That is normally the cost of one sushi roll for me…and I could eat 3 rolls at a time!
