The Juicing Life: Day One

Although, it may not seem like it (since my posts have been few and far between) I HAVE been holding to my New Year's Resolution to try a new Pinterest Pin every week... I have simply failed to write about it.  I am the Queen of my own distraction.  Sigh.

Anyway, I've decided to try a DIY Ritual Cleanse.  I've read so many great reviews of the Ritual Cleanse juices.  I just can't spend $80 a day on juice ($100 with shipping).  I have purchased a fancy new juicer, but I wanted to start RIGHT NOW.  I have no patience.  I also have a baton twirling gig coming up on Monday and my partner in crime is the cutest, skinniest little thing you ever did see.  I won't be anywhere near her size ever, but I do have my vanity.  In all reality I'm looking for something that will give me energy to get everything done AND the motivation to exercise more.  I don't have a lot of down time, but I do spend it sitting down.  Glowing skin wouldn't hurt me any either.  I'm just sayin'.

This morning I woke up feeling lethargic.  I decided to get dressed and grab some freshly bottled juice from Arden's Garden.  I bought a liter each of Green Machine & Complete Recovery.  It's almost 7pm and I have finished off the Green Machine (I did share with my visiting mother) and moved on to my second glass of Complete Recovery.  Green Machine is definitely my favorite.  I look forward to replicating it a tad less sweet.  I haven't been too hungry or tempted all day.  I'm about to head to the grocery store, so we'll see how long that lasts.  Most of the day I was energetic and managed to get quite a bit accomplished.  I should say I became SUPER tired earlier today and napped for 2 hours.  I never do that.  I don't know whether it's the change in my diet or my body seeking refuge from the 9,000+ pollen count Atlanta is currently experiencing.  I'll keep you posted.  Wish my luck on my trip to Publix!
