So this week the Duck and I have decided to our lives….
What the hell does that mean you ask???
It means we are going to pull out all the stops and go on a juice fast.
That’s right lovers
We are officially the stupidest people on the face of this earth.
You see it all started with a movie
Have any of you seen the documentary ““? 
Well we watched it and it done gone and messed with my head
Slapped me with a super dose of reality… 
SO this movie 
Is about a fat Australian guy who after suffering for years from an array of weird sicknesses and various ailments decided to try juicing as a means to better his life and “reboot” his system.
Over the course of 60 days he lost like 9 million pounds and got all crazy energetic and healthy.
During his travels to get healthy he recruited some fat American trucker fella to join in his crazy antics and try to un-fattify himself also. Well that fat dude lost a bunch of weight too and also went and got himself crazy healthy.  
By the end of the movie he was running through snow and shit.
Anyways, the movie was amazing and we have decided that it’s time to get healthy and jump start our health.
I am totes not doing this for weight loss, however on a completely personal note,
 I did gain
  A LOT 

of weight when I was pregnant
 And I am still here, 2 years later trying to shed the last 15lbs. I Will not be bummed if in the process of this crusade for health I loose my muffin top and possibly this third chin I have acquired

Seriously, if I don’t drink about a gallon of coffee every morning I have zero energy to get through the work day and take care of G.
Hopefully this reboot can just get me back to normal.
Here is a round up of what you do….
take a whole lotta these
2nd: shove them into this thing
3rd:  drink what comes out the spout…
all day long for 7 days….
OK ??
so Day 1 starts this morning…
Wish me luck, that I don’t give in a run into crispy cream and hold some doughnuts hostage
Make sure you watch the movie

and look at the info

Back to posting about interior design tomorrow.
  1. Um seriously let us know what you feel like by day 3! Let it all out! My girlfriends and I did a fast/cleanse once, not exactly a juice cleanse, but by day 5 we decided a shake was a good idea because we had gone crazy! I will never forget how sick we all felt in the car so the fast was working! When you give yourself a boost of healthiness your body doesn’t crave the junk…I think the hardest part is making your mind forget about all the goodies!

  2. Amber, I can’t wait to see how this works for you. I also am still carrying around 15 lbs. of baby weight, 2.5 years later…. and also struggle to have any energy by the middle of the day. I hope the juice works wonders and that you inspire me to get off my butt and try it too. Good Luck!

  3. I watched that documentary not long ago, as well as Forks over Knives… have you seen that one? I think its awesome that you are both doing this juice fast together! It would be so hard to try and have only juice while your hubs is eating all kinds of yummy food in front of you! Please keep us posted, I’d love to hear how its going! We have been thinking about trying it after we watched that movie =D

  4. The thought seems like a total nightmare but good for you for giving it a go. I can’t wait to hear how it goes, as I’m in the same place. Skinny with flub and a muffin and zero energy. Best o’ luck!

  5. Good luck! If juicing is too much, there’s a good fruit/veggie cleanse called the Daniel fast that you might like. I did it for 7 days before succombing to peanut butter toast (epic fail). Can’t wait to see your review of juicing!

  6. I am on my second day (out of three) of a blueprint cleanse. so far so good, except that on Monday, I was at a work conference and I stayed up until 2 am drinking with my coworkers (dumb), so when I woke up the next morning to start my juice cleanse, I first needed a crucial stop at chick-fil-a. But, the point we don’t want to miss here is that by lunch I had started the juice and I was definitely a touch hungover, but I stuck with it! woo hoo! 7 days sounds like a long time. maybe give it a go for just three days and see how you feel. I think you’re supposed to feel pretty crappy the first couple of days as your body releases all the toxins it’s stored up. good luck!
