This isn’t the best photo, but the organic kale that was on sale at Ralphs was beautiful! Green and Purple, super pretty looking. By a weird, but wonderful chance, every week of this challenge the organic kale has been on sale at Ralphs! Every week I keep thinking, ‘this is the last week’ so I buy, juice & freeze enough for the coming week. Hehe, I have a stockpile in my freezer going on. Not a bad thing though. On to the update now.

This week I added a little bit more exercise in. On a calorie flash: I looked up orange juice and it’s 112 calories a cup! Hmm, maybe that may the the problem of not losing too much weight. I was watching Biggest Loser Friday night and then I looked up one of Bob Harper’s books on amazon. There was a little preview read up there, that said he recommends women trying to lose weight to eat 800 calories. Of course I did not read the whole book, so I don’t know if he expects you to be working out or not. So then I started looking up calorie count of foods and started thinking of what those 800 calories looks like in real life food, hmm, makes me think. Anyway, I will continue on the juice challenge, but it did give me something to think about when I go back to eating again and I will be looking up his book at the library. Have a good week peeps!
