Didn’t last that long at all….

Hi there everyone,

I have stopped doing the 48hr cleanse. I am just finding it uber hard to maintain the not eating aspect of it and I am always hungry……. (just the way I am wired I think) but that hasn’t stopped me from having one last smoothie.

I decided to do the Strawberry Raspberry juice but instead of the ice/stevia I added in about 3/4 cup of non fat milk and made it into a yummy smoothie.

The recipe is…
1 tsp. Loverr
1 Banana
1/2 Punnet Strawberries (original recipe says 1 punnet)
1/4 cup Raspberries
3/4 cup non fat milk (originally 1/2 cup ice and stevia)

I thought it was very nice and I would totally do it again Smile yummy!!!!

So atm I’m just trying to make healthier choices and smaller portions and all that stuff. If anyone has any hints or websites or anything, please let me know.

Anyway, that’s all from me for now.

Have fun and take care.

Well that didn’t last…..

Hi there everyone,

Well that didn’t last very long at all. I was good when I started but then I went away and had McDonalds for a late night snack. Albeit a Garlic Chicken Wrap and Sweet Potato chips but still, it wasn’t what I needed to have.

Then this morning as I wasn’t at my home I had a coffee, Sunkist and more coffee. Argh! However, as of 12pm I have started the juicing again. I have brought a juice that seems relatively healthy from the supermarket so I don’t have to make a juice all the time and at this current point in time I have made one of my fave smoothies to date.

This is a concoction that I made up on the fly and by christ it’s yummy.

Here’s the recipe…

1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1 whole banana
3/4 cup cranberry juice (I used the light version)
1 tsp. Loverr 48 hr. cleanse
1/2 cup water

And the pic is the result. I have a Magic Bullet which I used to blend the ingredients together and it’s the best smoothie I have ever made. Yum-O!!!!

Let’s see how well I do today….. (doing well so far and it’s only 1:38pm….)

Anyway, have fun and take care.

Todays new experience

Hi there once again everyone,

I know I have kind of bombarded you all with posts today and I promise this is it. I just wanted to share with you about this new thing I’m doing and if you have any comments, please feel free to do so in the comment box….

This new experience I’m doing is……..

THE 48 HR LOVERR CLEANSEMy package of 48hr cleanse

I started at 2:30pm today and I’ve done alright so far.

I would’ve started it this morning but I just didn’t want to do it then and I was hungry so I started at 2:30 and as it says, it goes for 48 hrs. I found it by chance at Loverr Superfruit Juice Cleanse and I thought I’d try it. I figured it couldn’t hurt right?

So, as it is only a couple of hours in I’m doing alright. Had my smoothie of blueberries, cranberry juice, bananas and one teaspoon of this cleanse so lets see how well I can last between now and Monday. I can’t wait.

The reason for trying this is to see if it will reinvigorate my healthy eating that I know I can do but I just don’t. I want to see if it works and just see if I have the willpower to do something about my lifestyle.

If you want more information, there is a link on their page here that tells you all about it. I liked the look of it so I ordered it during the week and I got my package yesterday which is awesome. I got the 48hr cleanse and the detox bath which you do at the end of the cleanse so I’m really looking forward to that Smile 

I’ll keep you posted about any more developments as they happen.

Have fun and take care.

P.S. I may post pics after this has all finished depending on how this all goes…….

My weighty experience

Hi again everyone,

I told you I’d post soon and here I am Open-mouthed smile

Anyway, I’m here to talk to you about what I have been doing for about 9 weeks……JENNY CRAIG!

Yes, I did join Jenny Craig because I felt at the time that my weight had ballooned out of control and believe me, it did.

I was the heaviest I’ve ever been and I looked it. 85.7kg and I was unhappy with the way I looked and the way my clothes fitted.

So I made the appointment with Jenny and for a couple of weeks I was on cloud nine.

Then real life kicked in…..

Here is how my Jenny experience went..

As you can see, it didn’t go overly well. I just wasn’t consistent enough to do it. I found it very hard to stay committed to the program and real life just got in the way which I didn’t really appreciate.

So this past Tuesday I went in to the centre as I had an appointment and I have stopped doing it as of right now. As my consultant explained to me, I am on a five year contract with them so if I want to come back and give it another shot then I can ring up within that time and do it but at the moment it just was becoming such a hassle to me personally. I just couldn’t get myself into that headspace.

I do highly recommend it though as an option to lose weigh because it is such a good program and you can tailor it to your specific eating. For example, I don’t eat fish (at all), eggs is eggy form (eg. Scrambled, whole, poached etc.) and creamy pasta/spaghetti so my consultant and I would both go through the menu and sort out what I couldn’t eat and what to replace it with which was awesome. And I must say that the ladies at the centre where I went were so nice and supportive and even when I went this past week they were still very supportive and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to lose weight.

But as I said, I just couldn’t do it and I feel bad for giving up on it but I didn’t really want to continue if the same thing was going to continue all the time……

If you’ve done Jenny Craig and are a success story I would love to hear from you. I loved watching all the success stories on Youtube and I wanted to be one of those but again, I just couldn’t do it (which is annoying and I am very much so paying for it now…… Sad smile )

Anyway, that is all from me for now.

Please feel free to comment in the comment box…..

Have fun and take care….

Wowsers!

Howdy there guys and gals,

Sorry I haven’t written here for ages. Just been working and living my life a bit differently……

I thought that I would update you guys on what’s been going on, which isn’t much. I’ve been working nights which is awesome because there is only really my work colleagues and I at night which is awesome. Mind you, there is more expected of us and that really annoys me because sometimes that’s just not possible. I just do my mantra which is “MEH” and move on though (it’s really a fantastic mantra though lol ).

Diet wise I tried to do something different which I will post about later and it just didn’t work so at this current point in time I’m trying something new and exciting but I will post on that later…..

BF wise I am still with my man and very very happy Smile I love him more and more everyday. He just makes my life so much better and I look forward to spending time with him everyday….

My mother recently went away to India/Nepal and she came back last week and I’m so glad she’s home safe and sound. She went with Malaysia Airlines which I was very much against her going on but that’s just who she went with and she didn’t end up harmed so YIPEE! She had a lovely time and she took LOTS and LOTS of photos but it looks so awesome and you can tell that she wants to go back which is awesome. It’s the second time she’s been and she wants to experience more of the world now which is awesome for her Smile

Anyway, I think that’s all for now. Have fun and take care and I will post hopefully sometime soon…

Till next time,

Lil xoxo
