And…..I’ll start tomorrow

Happy Sunday! I just love Sunday’s so much 🙂 I was suppose to start my juice detox today but my excuse was “it’s Sunday” lol so I had a salad from subway, so classy!

Usually Sundays are filled with home cooked meals but the parental’s decided to “ditch” us today, so we had to fend for ourselves. It was between chipotle and subway, I got a funny look from my sisters when I asked if it would be weird to get a burrito bowl without rice so I opted for a simple salad from subway, then when I got home I had this little creation

I have a slight love affair with raisins. Am I alone?

After lunch digested a bit, my sisters and I decided to “run”

Ya it definitely did not go as planned, for one, food was not fully digested and then it started to rain. But at least we got a nice walk in, I was still sore from earlier this week so it probably did me some good.

On another note…I came across this today and reminded me of my study in Ecclesiastes that I’m currently doing on the meaning of life…

I’ll touch upon this in another post, off to watch GCB which starts at 9:01, 01 not 00. Odd. Still haven’t formed an opinion on how I feel about this show, I sometimes feel offended but it hits home because theres a lot of truth in it, as far as today’s Christians, maybe not as extreme but along the same lines. Hopefully I’ll last through the show since it’s a bit past my bedtime and I have an early morning tomorrow, going to a Windy City Live show taping with the sista, should be interesting hopefully there will be a giveaway!

How do you feel about raisins?

Do you prefer working out alone or with company?

Watching any good shows this season?

Some din din

For dinner today I made some raw Spanish rice, omgsh SO good, I’ve seen this recipe on quite a few blogs so I bet it usually is a hit. It was my first time using butternut squash, and I will most definitely be using this vegetable again.

Even my little sister enjoyed it, although she said it needed some mustard…weird, no comment. Now I just have to get the final say from my mother, she’s a little hard to please, but regardless I’ll be making this again 🙂 I had some tomatoey meatballs alongside it, kind of a strange duo but I liked it! Love trying to new recipes.

Anyone have any other butternut squash recipes?

To Juice or not to Juice..

Spring is in the air!

Perfect time for some spring cleaning, internally. There are chock full of benefits to juicing; better digestion, immunity, and greatly improves allergies, improved skin conditions such as acne, dryness, eczema, etc. and the list could go on and on. I watched a documentary a few months ago that I should probably revisit for some encouragement, it’s called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, it’s about a man that challenges himself to juice for a few months and along the way he introduces people to juicing, check it out! Netflix or your local library should have it.

 

So what’s all this talk about? Well, I want to juice for the next three days, my only concern is energy, I work out at least 5X a week and I don’t want to have to skip my workouts, although juicing actually energizes it’s low in calories, but I guess I’ll just have to give it a go and see how I feel.

 

Has anyone done a juice detox before? Were you able to workout at all? What are some of your favorite combinations?
