New start to my life!

So I recently watched a movie called "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" that was a complete eye opener for Devon and I.  We have been drinking tons of the Naked juices but really they are not as good for you as they seem since they are still processed.  So after watching this movie, I went out and bough my new toy.
This is the Jack La Lanne's Power Juicer.  This thing is AMAZING! Watch this video then you will see why I bought this juicer.  I really wanted to start now while I'm young by eating healthy and giving my body the best that it deserves. After only 1 day I feel amazing! I have more energy and I feel so great. 

I have decided to go on a 10 day juice fast.  I have been on it almost 24 hours.  I am really craving a hamburger or a taco but in 9 more days I can have a real meal.  You are allowed 2 meals a week. So my choice of meal is going to be a hamburger I have already decided. I will share with you what I have had so far on my juice fast.


Mean Green

1 Bulk of kale
4 Stalks of celery
1 Cucumber
2 granny smith apples
½ lemon
Ginger root (thumb sized)
** I added 3 kiwi for flavor 

This juice sure sticks to it's name! It was GREEN and it was MEAN! It did not taste that great but it was not bad.  At times I ask myself WHY am I doing this diet?! 


10 minutes into it... 

But then finally I got it all down. Boy was I proud of myself!! 
Later that night I made grape juice.  You would be shocked how yummy grape juice taste made from just the juice of grapes nothing else. 

All the left over grapes. 

I did not follow a recipe for breakfast but the smoothie taste amazing I used:
A whole container of blackberries
2 apples
2 pears
10 strawberries
half of a cucumbers
2 nectarines 


This one was very yummy.  Devon did not think so though. My friend Jenni was over and she thought it was good too so that makes me feel better that someone else thought it was not terrible. :p
This juice looked SO YUMMY ...

Till I stirred it ... haha!

Later this after noon I made popsicles out of watermelon and strawberries.  So easy to make just throw it in the juicer and you have the juice all done for you then put them into little containers. 

After a few hours you have .. 

homemade popsicles! :) 
That is all the juice for the day.  Tomorrow will be another day full of amazing veggies and fruit! 
All in all today I have the following put into my body:
Blackberries, apples, pears, nectarines, cucumber, strawberries, celery, tomatoes, carrots, bell peppers, kale leaves, onion, garlick, spinach, and watermelon.

What will tomorrow bring?! :)

Big Bear 2010

Big Bear 2010

We went to Big Bear for Devon's birthday in October! 

First we started out with getting gas! This was the luckiest gas pump ever! We had taken the truck with us, but the truck cost about 60 bucks to fill up and after we were done pumping the gas with $60 dollars, it didn't turn off! So after a while it shut off until we paid $1 more! Then it started all over again giving it more and more gas! It was pretty awesome! Devon was pretty amused but his wonderful smile! 

We had a long drive to Big Bear so we all got a little shut eye on the way there, so we could have TONS of fun when we got there! 
Of course the guys were a little more lucky on the way because they could stop and "go" anywhere... us girls were out of luck! 

 .... no comment! 

Devon wanted to watch T.V. with Mckenna and Adam but figured it would be more fun to lay on them! 

Big Bear 2010 

Big Bear 2010 with The Herpel's, Anderson's, and Kvarfordt's!

Mary chasing her Husband with a stick she found on a bush and she was whipping him, telling him if he was not nice she WOULD use it! 

Adam found a whip from a bush to and said he needed to use it ...

Needless to say it was pretty funny! 

After that, Devon was ready for payback! 

 We had a very fun trip with our friends! It was very cold to us, but ton and tons of fun! 

Our first blog!

Well here it goes, its the Kvarfordt's first blog! We did it! 
Everyone I know just about has a blog and were very excited to be keeping in touch with all of our friends! This up coming week we have Thanksgiving.  I <3 Thanksgiving! Its the day of eating all you want and then being able to eat leftovers for the next week! Yahoo! We are going to be heading to see Family in Idaho Falls, Id! The current temperature there is 25 and snowing! 

I'm very excited to have a snowball fight! I have seen snow about 5 or 6 times! Devon said he is going to  win in our snow ball fight but I have to macho men who are going to help me bring him down!! His Brother and Jonathan his cousin! So he better watch out! 
I quote Devon: " I will bring you down, I am like the Rock, and Chuck Norris.  I will win!" 
We SHALL see!! 

We recently celebrated our 1 year of being married! It was so wonderful, we stay on the Las Vegas Strip at Planet Hollywood, found amazing mexican food at Yolo's, and went to a comedy show! I am so thankful that I have such a great husband! I love being married to my Devon!
