I had a horrible night, that I had to start juicing, if I wanted to continue on this water fast. Around 8:30 p.m. yesterday, I finally drank a bit more cranberry juice (approximately 5 ounces) as I was feeling really horrible. It tasted really tart and after a little while I was feeling a bit better, but not much. I was restless as the achy-ness was horrible. I was able to rest a bit and listen to TV for a while. I caught some sleep, but it was mostly broken up, as I couldn't get comfortable. I still felt like I was dying.
Finally around 2:00 a.m, I got out of bed and went hunting in my fridge to see what I might be able to juice. I found some celery and a couple carrots, which I hadn't eaten yet prior to my fast. I found my apples and my small bag of cherry tomatoes that I bought just before I started my fast, but didn't get a chance to eat. I came across those accidently, as they were in a bowl on the back of my stove. I juiced what little I had. It made one 8 ounce glass of juice. I pour half of it in a cup and put the other half in a glass bottle that I have to hold my fresh juices when I take them to work for lunch. I wanted to keep what little I had for later if I needed it.
I went back to my bedroom and sipped on the juice slowly for about an hour. It felt and tasted good going down. It was a bit sweet, due to the apple in it. After wards, I took a shower, to help relax my body enough that I might be able to go to sleep. I have to say that I feel a bit better, as I had something in my body other then just water, but I still felt very hollow and achy.
I finally did get some sleep, but to me it didn't seem like much. I had a hard time getting out of bed, but I had no choice. I had to work.
I didn't seem as cold as I was, but then I was still really bundled up, other then my hands and face. But as it seemed, my hands weren't as cold as they were days ago. Maybe it was the cranberry juice and fresh juice I made.
I took my bottle of juice with to work so I could drink as I needed it. I still found myself very restless and achy, but it seemed cut down a bit. The acetone smell coming from me was still very strong, which was hard for me. I can't stand it, but I am trying to stick it out as much as possible. I drank some more juice around 1:00 p.m., as I couldn't stomach any more water. I have to say that it tasted excellent, even thought it wasn't fresh “fresh”.
After work, I made myself go to the grocery store to pick up some veggies for my juicer. I really didn't want to, as I just wanted to go home and lay down, as my energy level wasn't as high as I thought it might be. Probably because I am really trying to hold back drinking a lot of juice, so I can keep to the water fast. I picked up some more celery, carrots, tomatoes and some cucumbers, parsley and garlic. I don't know if you can juice parsley or garlic, but I thought it would be health, as I have read that parsley is good for your liver and helping with detoxification. When I did get home, I stuffed my food in the fridge and went and got into bed to rest for a bit. I took a short nap for about 2 hours and I was up again. Aching
I took another shower to try and relax, but it just seemed to wake me up more and make me restless. Since I was restless, I cleaned my bedroom a bit, as lately it has become very disorganized due to my fasting. In the past, I was always cleaning something, but this time, it seems that I don't have the energy I had the last couple times I fasted. I wonder if it is because I am getting some of my own deep cleaning within my body, which is sapping most of my energy that I usually have. I must push myself a bit to get things down. I am sure a lot of it too is that I am still grieving over the conversation I had with someone on Sunday. You can say I don't have any joy in anything at the moment.
Around 8 p.m., I made myself a bit of celery juice (just 2 stalks) which I sipped on slowly. It tasted wonderful while the little bit lasted. As I was getting ready for bed, I started thinking about someone, and I actually started crying over it. It make me feel horrible all over again. I did a bit of EFT, and the emotion kind of numbed out of my system again. I ended up taking another shower to sooth my confused heart and mind. In my misery, I just crawled into bed, with my water bottle by myself and laid there until I fell asleep, hoping that I could survive the night with the aching that I was having in my body, as my hip was starting to act up again for some reason, let alone my lower back too.
At least, I had no solid foods yet, so I guess I am good to go, even though I feel so darn horrible.
