At home juice cleanse...thoughts

Juicing...**deep sigh** I'm on the edge. Let me start by saying that I have been planning and preparing for a 3 day juice cleanse, which I have been really excited for! Mostly excited for the results, not the veggie part. ha. Today I tried a test drink so I could taste exactly what I should expect. I don't have a juicer so I borrowed my moms Ninja blender which I Googled, and all my results said it would work.  Not exactly..At least not during my trial. Okay okay, so for the most part it did work but it took foreverrrrr. I also had to chop up my fruits and veggies into small pieces, which I don't think you have to do with a juicer. Total blending time was probably around 10 minutes. That's a long time to blend!!! After that I took my first sip. GROSS SO SO GROSS. It was lumpy, so lumpy. *sad face* I was so disappointed but I didn't quit there! After my first sip I decided I needed to strain my mixture (some of the tips for using the Ninja said I would have to strain). So I got my little powdered sugar strainer out and a spoon and I strained the mixture. This was actually pretty easy but it was just another step I didn't want to have to do. After all of this I tried my first real "juice" sip. I so wish I enjoyed it more. Maybe it's because I'm not much a veggie girl in the first place but everyone elses blogs that I read about "at home juicing" make it sound scrumptious! I'm not giving up though! I'm still eager to do my 3 day (it's only 3 days right!?) at home juice cleanse, maybe I'll add more fruit then veggies to give it extra sweetness. Thoughts?? Anyone? I've also decided to reach out and see if anyone I know may have a real juicer that I can borrow for the week. I think that's my best bet! Thanks for listening to me ramble...Here are some pictures of my lumpy lumpy "juice" aka kale, celery, lettuce, cucumber, parsley, apples and spinach.

At least the straw and jar makes it looks super desirable! ha!
