Weight Loss and Juicing

I promised to juice every day and blog about it.

I think I have only missed about 2-3 days (not juicing) in a 2 week period.

I have done very well but not lost anything, as I have been having a lot of fruit juice and the vegetable juice has been in the minority.

I realised my mistake, so am now trying to make more green juices like this:

They're actually really delicious.  Great for getting you alkaline, and very filling/hydrating.

It was Wednesday when I made this one.

It contained:

cucumber - WHOLE
apples x 2
pear x 1
some fresh parsley
celery - couple of stalks
a handful of dark green salad leaves

Absolutely delicious.

I need to set on a game plan and go for it as the #WWback2best i.e. Weight Watchers back to best bloggers kick-stared today and I really want to join them.  You can watch Super Amazing Mum here and Michelle Twin Mum here.

To be honest, the only reason I didn't is because the current app is for iphones and I have a Samsung.

Anyway I would love to join them in losing a load of weight by Christmas.

So back with an edit:

Writing the above spurred me on so I just went to the kitchen with Aaron and made orange, pineapple and beetroot juice.

4 oranges peeled with pith left on
A quarter of a fresh pineapple peeled
A whole beetroot, raw.

I googled to see if anyone else had ever done that combination as I just did it on the spur of the moment and I found this, so I am glad to see it is healthy etc...

Look at the beautiful colour the beetroot sends it:

Best bit is Aaron likes it as he doesn't like every juice that I make!

As usual the juicer I use is my KT100 chrome from



  1. Good luck with the weight loss! As long as you feel good about yourself, doesn't really matter what the numbers on the scales say... took me a looooooong time to get to that. Your beetroot juice looks gorgeous, like koolAid!

  2. Looks yummy & so nutritious! Great that Aaron's enjoying it! :)

  3. well done lovely you - I am SURE I saw app for android though? Is your phone ana ndroid *confused face*.

    Anyway, glad you are joining in - I am ready to kick butt - 2 stones by Christmas to be precise!

    Love SAM xoxo

  4. Your beetroot juice looks stunning, like koolAid!

  5. Beetroot juice is rich in vitamins B1, B2, P, PP, C. Beetroot contains considerable amounts of iron and vitamin b folic acid, which have a positive effect on the blood vessels, enhance red blood vessels cell production, increase the level of hemoglobin and hence enhance the nourishment of the cells with fresh air.
