3 Things Thursday – Week 30

Here we are at week 30 of our 3 Things Thursday link-up. It’s been a busy week here with school trips, parent–teacher meetings, Halloween decorating, juicing, blogging of course and a project that I’m working on with Raj that we’re excited to tell you about very soon!

But first thing is first, this week’s #3ThingsThursday.

1. Juice Cleanse
Last week I decided it was time to do a three-day juice cleanse for the first time ever. I was feeling bloated, tired etc.. and I had read so many good things that I decided to go for it. Let’s just say, I didn’t make it through. By the end of day 2, I couldn’t handle it anymore. I was hungry, most of the juices were making me gag and it didn’t help that I chose the wrong “time of the month” to tackle this challenge.

What put me over the edge was this little tidbit. But I did learn a few things: I don’t actually love juice or juicing that much, I don’t like raw beets and I appreciate real food so much more now. This is not to discourage you from trying it out if that’s something you want to do. I say go for it and you’ll know if it’s something that works for you or not. Here are the juice recipes I tried, modifying when there was something I didn’t like.

I go to a local gym and they were celebrating their 20th anniversary this week. There were demo’s, healthy snacks as well as fitness challenges and prizes. I ended up doing the sit-up challenge and managed 208, even it took me at least 20 minutes. That was on Monday. Today, my abs are still sore (in a good way) but I won a prize for the most sit-ups! It was a pretty exciting moment in my week so I had to share.

This week I went with Keyan on his first kindergarten field trip and it was to the pumpkin patch. The school policy is that no siblings are allowed so I had to leave Kyah with a family member but it was really nice just spending time with Keyan. We got to see animals, go on a tractor hay ride and of course, pick a pumpkin. That was Keyan’s favourite part and and it’s one of the Halloween traditions that we do every year.

  1. Hi Salma,
    I’m enjoying your “3 Things Thursday” share and I can relate to the juicing because I do it when I need an energy boost. But oh…. how I hate to clean the juicer after. I would rather do sit-ups. If I ever do get around to doing a 3 things post, I will definitely let you know!

  2. So I admire you for being willing to try a Juice Cleanse. I haven’t tried it because there is no way I’d ever make it through. I like juice well enough, but would probably hate just about the same time that you did. And yes, grilled cheese would send me over the edge as well!

  3. I am so inspired by all that you do! I can’t wait to try my first juice cleanse. Today though I started the sit-up challenge. Really enjoy creative ways to make a mind-body connection throughout the day. Thank you!

  4. I am going to have to think of three things to join this! I like this!
    I like what you are doing too! Juicing, sit-ups and pumpkin patches are all things that I can relate too!
    Very nice blog!
