Final day on juice fast and a new do!

Happy Friday!
Ladies, I don't know if y'all are this way, but I LOVE changing my hair. I am ALWAYS being asked "is this your real hair?" Or they say "Oh, Katie's changed her hair again". Because I love wearing wigs or hair extensions, and I'm always changing it!
 So, I've done it once again.
I love it!! I have the most fabulous hairdresser in the world. Seriously. This is only my second time going to her, but I'm already in love.

 Today is the  final day on my juice fast! I decided to just do it for 5 days instead of 2 weeks. It has really been wonderful! Honestly, I have not been hungry one time. Of course I'll have cravings for FOOD, like ice cream (haha), but I don't feel hungry at all.
I've made some delicious (and some not so delicious) juices.
Not so delicious at all.


Green juice with spinach, cucumber, lime, pineapple and apple was really good. I also cooked a bunch of veggies in the slow cooker, then pureed them into a soup. Absolutely yummy!
 I've ran twice this week, a 3 miler and a 4 miler. Felt great both times. Tomorrow I'll be doing 14, and then 12 on Sunday.


Yesterday I made a beet juice with a beet, apples, carrots, spinach and lemon. I don't like beets at all, but I love them juiced!
Wine counts, right?


 Today is a snow day for the kids. Come on, Spring! I hate this stuff! But she sure is cute.



Do you like the snow?
Who is running this weekend?

  3. I like it when I can enjoy it from the comfort of my own home. Not so much when I have to leave or work or do anything lol. And I think the girls and I are going to enjoy a walk this weekend, but probably no run.

    1. I don't even like it then! Because it just reminds me of how cold it really is. Lol! I hope you all enjoy your walk!

  4. Your hair looks great. It really accents your features well. And I'm not sure how you're able to run that much on juice alone. I'm not sure that I could do that. Good luck on your 14-miler tomorrow. I think I'm going to go out and run in the snow in the morning. I LOVE running in the snow. Nothing else compares. It's almost perfect.

    LOVE that it's the weekend! I'm working tomorrow but I've got Sunday and Monday off! :)

    1. LOVE that you said LOVE so much!! ;) Thank you! Ok, what is green monster?
      I know a couple people with naturally curly hair (my mom being one of them), and they have also had the hardest time finding a hairdresser. Have a good weekend!

    1. Thanks so much, Jen! My hair was really damaged, so I knew I had to do it. As for the juice fast, I just look at it as 5 days a year I juice, and the other 360 I get to eat food!
