This weekend was full to the brim with friends, fun, exercise and THE JUICE.
On friday, I was sitting outside on the front porch watching my son zoom around on his Razr scooter and my neighbor approached and wanted to talk about health and fitness. We must have sat for about an hour talking about fitness routines and healthy eating and juicing. Mind you, my neighbor is 19 years old and over 300lbs. We decided to start our own fitness routine and got started Saturday morning.
We headed over to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook and tackled the 700'+ staircase which the devil built with claws and teeth. OMG! It hurt SO BAD getting up those stairs. They're jagged, uneven, and crooked, but as you climb higher and higher, the Los Angeles cityscape blossoms below you. By the time you get to the top, you have a 360 degree view of L.A, from the ocean to the mountains, Beverly Hills to the hood', it was a beautiful sight to behold. After forcing my stomach contents (JUICE) back into my stomach-I was seriously about to heave-we made our way back to the base via the conveniently placed hiking trail. There are bathrooms and a little museum up at the top to help you get it back together. I had such an overwhelming sense of accomplishment when I reached the bottom. I felt like I had just climbed Mt. Everest!

Sunday morning was all about cantaloupe and green juices, church, family, and a fun evening at Mulligan's.
I didn't take detailed notes about the juices I made, but below is an approximation:
Handful of strawberries
Festival Juice (Nice mostly veggie concoction, no pix :()
1 bunch Kale
3 Stalks Celery
5 or 6 Radishes
1 Granny Smith Apple
1 Fiji Apple
1 Small Seedless Watermelon
2 stalks celery
