Beet juice and sweaty sweaty yoga

Leif and Josh doing acro yoga at the park last night

Here goes day 8 of the cleanse! I have had two small cheats but otherwise things have been clean! My juicer is giving out on me (I guess that’s what happens when you steal your parents 20 year old juicer). I’m hoping Josh can fix it tonight!

I’m taking the day off from cardio to give my tight legs some rest but was blessed with a happy baby this morning who just smiled and wiggled as I did a 50 minute yoga class called Power Breath and Balance with one of my favorite yogis at myyogaonline. Our apartment is hot hot hot (Leif and I have been camping in the floor under the ceiling fan at night) and the class was challenging. I was sweating out my little cheat from last night like you wouldn’t believe it. Sweat is a great cleanser.

Leif and I followed up our yoga practice with breakfast. He had his usual–mama’s milk– while I experimented with a new to me iron rich juice modified slightly from Crazy Sexy Kitchen:

Iron Machine:

1 Large beet, peeled and cut into 8ths (ish)
8 carrots
2 celery stalks
Two handfuls spinach

Juice it. Drink it. Best done topless so as not to get beet juice on your clothes!

    I’m having a tough time visualizing crazy sex, sweat and food put through a 20 year old juicer but I trust that it is good for you.

    Love the picture of Josh and Leif. Handsome dudes.

    It is 10:40AM and 90 degrees here in Boise. We’re shooting for 108 again but, it’s a dry heat.

    Loading my bike up for my noon class at BSU. It’s not getting any cooler so I thought I’d better hit the greenbelt into town now for a beautiful ride along the Boise River.

    Enjoy the day and remember to be still and enjoy the moment.

    Love,

    Julie

      Haha, you crack me up! The juice is delicious… And coupled with the yoga, that red wine I had last night just got washed away. I’ve been hitting my bike more these days also! Get out there and beat the heat!
