21 Day Fast: Days 13 - 15

I got a little behind on my blog for the 21 day juice fast.  Today is day 15.  The last three days have been great.  I've had good energy, worked out every day and consumed large amounts of juice from citrus to green juice, with a couple of kombuchas thrown in there.  With only six days to go, I'm feeling confident and healthy.

My workouts have been more intense over the last couple of days.  On Friday, I had another upper body work after about 15 minutes of cardio.  My chest, abs and back muscles are pretty sore, indicating a great workout.  This morning I got on the elliptic machine for forty minutes and burned 600 calories.  Then, I spend another fifteen minutes on the treadmill going up hill and burned another 200 calories.  Apparently, after 30 minutes of cardio exercise, you really start to burn fat.  So, I spent about 20 minutes this morning in fat-burning mode.  I love it!

For the rest of the day, I plan on doing green juice and drinking large amounts of water.  I'll probably burn a lot more calories, because I also have to clean my house for a raw potluck tomorrow.  Brandi from Raw Foods on a Budget is giving a talk at my house on how to save money on a raw food diet.  I'm looking forward to it.  Be healthy.
