Day 68: Juicing really matters

Posted by Guest: Dei on

Well, it’s been about 5 weeks since I last left you back on Day 31. Since then I have only dropped another half kilo. They tried to make me go to rehab and I said NO, NO, NO. The good news is I have kept the weight off. The not so good news is I haven’t been juicing as much and sugar has made a comeback.

I think it all started when we had visitors and there was lots of leftover mini cheesecakes (they were gluten free) and rocky road. Couldn’t let them go to waste (otherwise I would hear my mum’s voice in my head saying “some poor starving child in Africa…………….”).

Anyway, why is it that some of us can be accountable to others, but not to ourselves?

While I ponder that thought, I would like to share a song that talks about the ups and downs of trying to change my lifestyle.

To the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

Is this the real food?

Is this just fallacy?

Or the “health” franchise?

Will it lead to vitality?

Hot party pies

Thickshake and fries for me

I’m just a poor girl, I have obesity

Because I’m easy come, easy go

Sugar high, iron low

Anyway the wind blows, maybe I should go gluten free, gluten free

Con-densed milk in a can

99% fat free it said

Pulled the ringpull, licked the lid

Sugar, life had just begun

But now I’ve met my intake for the day

Summer, oooh

Didn’t mean to eat deep fried

If I’m not juicing kale this time tomorrow,

Carry on, carry on as if mars bars should be battered

Too late, my time has come

Sent shivers down my spine

Body’s aching all the time

Goodbye everybody, I’ve got to go

Gotta juice some lemon rind and kiwi fruit

Curry, ooh (anyway the wind blows)

I love jasmine rice

I sometimes wish I’d never steamed corn at all

I see a little chocolate freddo in my hand

Make some juice, Make some juice, have you tried the pine mango?

Coconut chunks biting

Very very frightening me

(Go Paleo) Go Paleo

(Go Paleo) Go Paleo

‘Cos Pete Evans told me so


I’m just a poor girl, Doritos love me

She’s just a poor girl, juicing to live healthily

Spare her a life of hardened arteries

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?

Ageing skin! No, we will not let you go (let it go!)

Sluggish Bowel! No, we will not let you go (let it go!)

Bad Mood Swings! No, we will note let you go (Let it go!)

Will not let you go (let me go!)

Never, never let you go

Never let me go, oh.

No, no, no, no, no , no, no.

Oh Juice with Chia, Bread with Chia (Jam with Chia, let me go)

The bakery has a donut put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think I’ll look bony if I give up rye?

So you think I can live without hot apple pie?

Oh, gravy, can’t have meat without gravy,

Just gotta get out, just gotta find organic deer.

(oh yeah, oh yeah)

Juicing really matters

Lots of leafy greens

Juicing really matters

Being healthy matters to me.
