Oatworks Winner and Juice Fast Day #1

Congrats to Lisa Jones for winning the Oatworks Smoothies giveaway! I've sent you an email.

My Father in Law took me out to dinner and to see the musical Sister Act. It was excellent! I highly recommend it. I have never seen the movie before, but the musical was soooo good.


My long run on Saturday was supposed to be 21 miles. I got to mile 15 and just stopped. I kept telling myself only 6 more to go!! But I couldn't do it. No reason. My body just wanted to stop. So I listened. I know I should've kept going. I'm training for a 100 mile ultra, I can't stop after only 15!! But I did.
 I was looking at my runs for the past month, and my only long run was 13 miles a couple weeks ago, since my marathon over a month ago!

I have got to keep building up these long runs! I'm wondering if I've lost some endurance, and that's why my body was done at 15...
 Well, it is what it is, I'm not stopping!


Today I started my juice fast. Breakfast juice was a sweet potato, 2 apples, carrots, and a dash of cinnamon. It was so good!

My goal is to do this juice fast/cleanse for 2 weeks. No solid foods, only juice and chicken soup broth. This is my 4th year doing it, and I look forward to it every year!

What did you do this weekend?
Have you seen Sister Act?

  3. My weekend was pretty boring. A good boring. Poured all day Saturday!!! Got in a good run on Sunday then housework and a few errands. Are you worried about have enough energy to run on only juice? Seeing that you have done this before, you must be able too!!! Just got home from work and the weather here is so pretty for a change....headed out for a nice run now:)

    1. I love good boring weekends! Last year when I did this, I was training for a marathon, and had no problems. This morning I did a 4 mile run and felt great! I'm glad that miserable freezing cold weather is behind us!

  6. I'm a juice cleansing coach and can say juice fasts are some of the best things you can do for your health! You'll get better results if you leave out the soup, though. Consider it!

  8. Just curious... I have been into juicing/smoothies with all raw fruits/vegetables lately.. I think I read something about not eating raw potatoes bc of some enzyme or something. It might have just been white potatoes and not sweet ones - do you know anything about this?

    1. I haven't heard that about sweet potatoes. The plan I'm following includes them in the juice. As far as I know, they're ok!
