Well it's been two weeks since my last Sunday Summary and the reason... I've been living exceptionally quietly and getting my juice on. Yes, I actually managed to complete Jason Vale's 5 lbs in 5 days detox. To say I'm delighted would be a bit of an understatement, even if it did take over my life a little!
I must be honest I never thought I would be able to survive the whole week on nothing but 4 juices a day. It sounded way to difficult but I was determined to try. Now I'm not going to lie and say it was easy. I found the first two days exceptionally difficult and clock watched until I could have my next juice. Not to mention trying to avoid all the cakes and chocolate that seemed to follow me around. Luckily it all got easier the further into the program I got!
One thing I would mention is that the program recommends working out vigorously for 30 min each day. I didn't feel like I had enough energy to workout and would have made myself ill trying so instead I walked for an hour each day.
So how were my results?
My skin looks healthier and more hydrated, my hair is shinier, I have more energy, my bloating has gone and I feel lighter on my feet. It's difficult to explain but before I felt quite bulky and uncomfortable like I'd eaten a whole large pizza in one sitting. That sensation has completely disappeared, which is such a lovely feeling. Weight wise I lost an incredible 5 lbs!!!!
I have to say these changes seriously blow my mind. It amazes me that simply bombarding your body with fruit and veg can have such an impact. Moving forward I'm feeling super motivated and have decided to try two juices and two meals a day and see how I get on.
Hope you all had a lovely week!
