I stepped on the scale this morning and looky there, my weight went up a little bit. How in the world is that possible? I think the problem may have been that I didn’t drink enough yesterday. I only had 4 juices, not 6. I just couldn’t drink anymore. I used to love juices and now…well now, they annoy me. I usually make my own, but for this 10 Day Feast, I decided to buy them premade from our juice bar at Gold’s Gym. When I make my own, I can see all the good stuff that goes into them. I’ve scrubbed the veggies, juiced them and cleaned up. And it’s very rewarding. I love that whole process. And I think it makes me appreciate the juice more. Don’t get me wrong, the Elixir juices are amazing and tasty. I just think I don’t appreciate them as much since I didn’t put in the effort of making them. So today, I resolve to drink more juice!
Treats of the Day
At the beginning of this journey, I promised myself I would treat myself a little more. Today that included a haircut and a body scrub.
The haircut was so relaxing. We make shampoos and conditioner at the store, but sometimes you get tired of always smelling the same thing. And whatever shampoo she used on my hair smelled so good. And it was nice to walk away with healthier and softer hair (she used Argan Oil spray that made my hair soft).
I also did a scrub in the shower in the morning with our Walnut Body Polish. We make 6 different scrubs and they are all completely different. I like the Walnut Body Polish because it provides the deepest exfoliation and doesn’t leave any oil on my skin or shower floor. During a Juice Feast, it’s a good idea to exfoliate to eliminate dead skin cells so your skin can breathe. We lose toxins through our skin but if it’s clogged with dead skin, that process is slowed. Plus, a scrub just makes your skin feel soooo good. Super soft.
That’s it. Pretty quiet day. Didn’t work out, didn’t sew, didn’t do anything exceptional. And sometimes those are good days.
