Curve Maintenance Episode 1: Juice Vlog

Hello All My Darling Divas!!!
I’m reallllyyy excited because today is the first day of the Curve Maintenance series! As stated in my update blogpost last week, I’m going to start incorporating health and fitness in the blog! If you want to know more about what to expect in the Curve Maintenance series, then click here for that blogpost.

Ok so I have been interested in juicing for a longgggggggg time now, but was always afraid to do it. So I decided that I would stop being a punk and do my first juice cleanse! I decided to only do it for 1 Day because I wanted to first see if I could actually do it. There are a couple of amazing benefits to juicing such as

  • balanced pH and blood sugar levels,
  • a cleansed and regulated colon,
  • weight loss (fat, not water),
  • diminished toxin load,
  • strengthened immune system,
  • increased mental clarity,
  • heavy metals cleansing,
  • increased liver function capacity,
  • loss of cravings for sugar and other stimulants,
  • cellular cleansing and rebuilding,
  • radiant, glowing complexion,
  • diminished pains and allergies (some disappear completely),
  • blood, tissue and organ cleansing,
  • restored liver function capacity,
  • increased energy levels,
  • emotional cleansing and release,

Now I’m sure that one day of juicing is not going to make me loose 20 pounds, but the reason that I’m doing this is beyond weight loss. I decided to do a juice fast because I wanted to introduce my body to something new, wanted to challenge myself, and I wanted to flush out all the bad foods that I have been consuming since THANKSGIVING! Now juicing for more than a day would produce maximum results, but I feel that one day of juicing will start the cleansing process, and get me on track to eating better.

If you would like to do a juice cleanse then I suggest doing all your research and talking to your doctor. You want to make sure that you are healthy enough to begin this process even if it’s for a day! I don’t want anybody passing out from juicing them blaming me!(lol)

I decided that I would vlog my juicing experience so that both you and I can see the process. It’s always good to document things that happen so that you can go back to them later on as a reference. So lets see how good I did on my juice fast.

Did you enjoy the vlog? I have to say I really enjoyed vloging! I have never vlogged before, but am so obsessed with watching other people’s vlogs! 

Now I’m going to do a follow up video later this week telling you how I felt during the fast, and how I feel after if your interested. I feel that this blog has given you enough to watch and read, so I’m going to break it up.

As stated in this video, I got my juices from a company called Jus by Julie located in NY. Click here to visit their website. Jus By Julie also has a groupon, so you can save some coins! Click here to check out that group deal! There are plenty of other juice company’s, so if Jus by Julie doesn’t have what you want, feel free to look elsewhere. You can also juice at home! Grab some fresh veggies and fruit, grab yourself a juicer from Target, Walmart, or order online, and get to creating! The internet has a bunch of different juicing recipes, so you don’t have to get them delivered to your door. I just ordered it because I cant turn down a good groupon deal!( lol)

Ladies (and gents) I hope you have enjoyed the first episode in the Curve Maintenance Series! Be sure to come back later this week for Episode 2: The follow up! Feel free to follow me on any of my social networking sites. They are all linked above. Until next time, love ya lots like tator tots, and see you soon!
