Juicing Challenge Week 1: Assignments

How are you doing so far?

Have you had your juice today?

Or, at least, have you done your grocery shopping yet? If you still haven’t had a chance to do it, I hope that you’ll soon go and get yourself fresh ingredients for some amazing juices!

I just brought home a few bags of fruits, greens, veggies and other stuff–lot’s of it, because I’m not just doing juicing, but also smoothies. (Probably bought more than I need, but I only go once a week to Trader Joe’s, which is the closest place that I have that has decent organic produce.)

You too may have to make some research to find good places that sell fresh fruits and veggies, which is not necessarily the place that you are doing your grocery shopping right now–we’ll talk about shopping strategies and saving money on ingredients more as we go along.

So, here are your downloads below:

Week 1 Challenge Assignment

Since we are just starting out, I also want you to reflect on WHY you are doing this and record the BEFORE version of you by taking any photos.

Now, as I said before, let’s not kid ourselves here: I know that by drinking one big green smoothie or juice today you are not going to see dramatic difference in your body weight or your health tomorrow. However, I assure you that if you stick with this simple little habit for the long haul – the impact it may have on your life OVER TIME is far beyond what you can envision right now.

Knowing WHY you are doing this will make sticking with it easier.

For me, I want to be healthy and active as long as I can to continue doing the work that I’m passionate about, and make a much bigger difference in the world than anything that I have accomplished so far. I believe I still have lots ahead of me, the world needs my energy and my ideas (as it needs yours!), even if I’m only one person–history shows us that each individual can make a difference, and we don’t really know when the tipping point happens until we look back and say–“So that’s when it all started!” We are living in very interesting, fast-changing world which requires our full participation–and I’m definitely want to do that. I’m inspired when I’m looking at individuals who are in their 80s or 90s, such as Jay Kordich (also known as the Father of Juicing) or Charlotte Gerson (from the Gerson Institute), who are still making a difference.

So honestly give yourself the answer to the question:

Why are you here? Why have you joined this challenge?

and

Why is it really REALLY important to you?

Answer honestly. It would be great if you can actually write out your answer in a journal or on a designated file.

It’s not really about drinking this or that, losing x amount of weight or whatever. It’s about what lies beneath that.

Also, go ahead and write down the following…

  • What does a typical day’s eating and exercising (physical activity) look like for you at the moment? Note it down, quickly – don’t over analyze, just write down the gist.
  • What feels right?
  • What feels really wrong, icky, ugh or just uncomfortable (note: this might even be stuff that you think you’re doing right – write it down anyway)
  • What are you proud of about the way you eat lately?
  • How are you feeling right now? How is your energy level? Your health? Your skin?
  • Take note of everything that’s bothering you, as well as everything that you are happy about.

Here are some ways you might like to record where you’re at today – the starting point of this challenge:

  • Photos or a single photo
  • Quick measurements with a tape: waist, butt at biggest point, chest
  • Body fat measurements if possible
  • A piece of clothing
  • It’s up to you if you want to take specific measurements.

Fresh fruit juice, healthy drinks. *********************************

My Juicer: Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain

The juicer that I currently use (BTW it’s the same as filmed in the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead documentary) is Breville Juice Fountain JE98XL which you can find on Amazon or in any store that carries kitchen appliances. If you’re on the market for a juicer, it's a good juicer to consider.
