Juiced Up – Three days with Schkinny Maninny

Ahh here we go. For some reason I was silly enough to say “yes” to the idea of having only juices for three days straight. All in the name of blogging, I swear!

What I got each morning in the Sckinny Maninny Cleanse

(forgive that I seem to have lost a few juice pics along the way!)

Six rather large bottles of juice or soup arrived in a little esky. So much there, I wasn’t going to starve!

Breakfast each day was a Schkinny Leap frog. It had kiwi, which I shouldn’t really have drunk, but hey, I’m still here despite tingling lips!

A little morning tea.

Tomato and lentil soup for lunch. Quite filling!

Dinners to soothe to taste bugs. There were all YUM!

The Best Bits

  • Not having to think about what to eat for three days.
  • The ginger!!!!
  • Getting off coffee for a few days, but still being awake in the mornings!
  • The pumpkin soup was yum! Actually, all the dinner soups were :)

The not-so best bits

  • The evening drink. Couldn’t get into it. But then, I wasn’t that hungry so it didn’t bother me. I’ll use it on oats this week
  • All the plastic bottles! Yes, into the recycling, but still…
  • The same lunch 3 days in a row. Maybe I’m normally that boring anyway (tuna and rice cakes ftw!) It was yum though!
  • Going to the loo. Lots!

I know some people use those sorts of juice diets to lose weight, but I don’t think you really can if you have most of the juice! (I was back to my low weight for the year, same as Oct 25, at the end, but we’ll see if that motivates me to keep going!!) Not to worry, I’m sure my body is relieved to have a little change in routine, and a break from the sneaky mentos. The low fruit menu looks quite appealing.

At the price, I’m not sure it’s something I’d purchase myself, but I can see sooo many advantages. No way I could motivate myself to prepare that much fruit and veg in a day!

Personal Wellness Diary

Personal Wellness Diary

From today, I’m starting with this Personal Wellness Diary that I was sent by Plus One Mums to assist with my good habits, with the #bloggestloser challenge.

It’s got pages for sleep, movement, nutrition, goals, posture and more. Let’s see how I go! It’s fairly big, but fortunately I have a large bag for it :)

I’ll let you know if it’s easy to use :)

Who will be the Bloggest Loser? Countdown to summer challenge starts Monday! #bloggestloser

In all my inspiration today, it looks like I’ve kicked off another Bloggest Loser challenge! What is that? Well, basically a bunch of internerds track our diet and exercise the way we know best – online – and the winner is the one who gets the closest to their goal over the challenge.

So, I’m aiming to get under 70kg. And will post about it every week, lest I get picked on by the others for not posting. Twitter will flood with crap about ‘workouts’ and measurement. And my reward? A dress from the Maiocchi summer collection. Or 2. Cos I’m likely to get one anyway!

Want to join in? Sign up for a Daily Burn account, and join the challenge group here with the code A7F6FA

Bring it on!

Hello, Spring!

Sydney Flowers

Out of winter already, blossoms are blooming, days getting longer and a little warmer, freckles appearing on my arms. Spring is here and I’m bouncy and motivated.

Motivated to get to the gym each day. To walk in the fresh air to and from work. To eat more fruit. To work towards getting back under the 70kg mark (I hate talking numbers, but might as well put it out there) before summer. To drink lots of water and less coffee. To smile more. To work hard at uni.

And to wear more colours!

It’s All About Me (diet and exercise journal)

Diet and Exercise Journal

Excited because my new It’s all about me journal came :) I had a couple of these and used them well to keep myself on track a couple of years ago, and this will totally help me to get back into it!

Always nice to be accountable in some way. I’ll have this November/December/January period to get myself back into recording (not that there’s any guarantee of good habits, but recording it is a start!!) before the new year really kicks in.

I love how it has places to track weights and cardio worksouts, along with abdominals in its own space! (Better do them then!!), which is much better than many journals that only let you track food and calories. It also has “check ins” every 2 weeks.

(for the boys, or for those who prefer discreter than red (it used to be bright pink!), there’s also a black journal available)

I also signed up for two sessions of bootcamp a week for the next 7 weeks in the lead up til Xmas. That, and being inspired by healthy green apples on my blog layout (yes, click through if you haven’t already) instead of cupcakes and things I can’t actually eat will set me on the right track!
