And because you must be dying to know what else is inside this appetizing concoction, here is the recipe.
Not to mention the taste. I was looking forward to its creaminess, but let me tell you: there was mostly ickyness. And did you notice the “help clean your system for these warmer months” part of the description? Advice: if you ever drink this smoothie, make sure you’re going to have at least five or six hours before you need to head out on a run (or any place without a bathroom). Just saying.
Oh, but we’re going to talk about healthy food. Sorry.
I’m actually trying to prepare my taste buds for
more of this yucky stuff a juice cleanse that I decided to do next week. In fact, I made that plan as a New Year’s resolution. Obviously, that means I have to do it, or else.
My husband and mom, the supportive pillars that they are, decided right away they wanted to do it with me. In fact, HusbandRuns is most eager to try it – not because he thinks I have brilliant ideas, mind you (which I do), but because Deron Williams, Nets Player, did it. And now “he can dunk again.”
Where will all the juice come from? The easiest way to do it is get it ready-made from a local juicery. They deliver (or you pick it up) and it’s all nicely arranged in cute little bottles, with instructions when to drink which one.
But that’s pricey. A three-day supply of juice is about $200 per person — and with three of us doing it, we decided to
sell our child just go ahead and buy a juicer and do all the work ourselves. I mean, how hard could it be?
We’ll start a three-day fast next Monday, and I can’t wait to show you the shopping list. It’s hilarious.
Until then, I may have a glass of carrot juice in the afternoon (tastes even better if you add some apple to it) — but no more green smoothies, thanks.
Today’s workout:I used iSmoothRun to track this one and it really messed up this time. First of all, somehow I have set it up to not communicate pauses over to RunKeeper. This run was broken up by two conditioning sessions (one plyo jumps and one set of TRX), so the net time was less than an hour. Second, the total mileage was 6.2. I ran to the gym, then did laps around the track. Which certainly didn’t look like this:The problem is, I suspect, that iSmoothRun switches over to the accelerometer of my phone when the GPS signal isn’t good (or it finds running in circles confusing?), so technically part of the distance is estimated based on my steps.
Lesson learned: from now on, use RunKeeper only when planning to do a run with some other workouts mixed in, or when running around a track.
