Today I woke up feeling EXTREMELY well rested! I slept fantastically last night :)I also couldn't get off the toilet the beginning of the morning. When I weighed in this morning, I had lost 2 pounds! I was excited about that! I waited for a while to juice my breakfast. Instead, I watched a dvd and worked out on the elliptical. I also did my triceps with light weights. Then I juiced breakfast - another Pineapple Cantaloupe juice. It honestly tasted even more delicious then last night! It is by far my absolute FAVORITE drink! After my morning juice, I drank lots of water and took a salt bath. This time with an epsom salt Pumpkin Spice bath bomb - it was very nice and relaxing! At lunchtime, I juiced the most TOXIC drink you could ever IMAGINE! It was DISGUSTING!! I got the recipe from "The Juice Fasters Bible" which I happen to think is a great book. However, this drink was HORRENDOUS! It was ginger,pineapple,GARLIC,celery,and lemon. Absolutely DREADFUL! I don't know what I was thinking - i guess I just figured that I had all of the ingredients so I mine as well go for it. WRONG! I held my nose and drank 8 oz. I nearly died - i threw it out and then brushed my teeth for a half hour! lol After, since I still hadn't technically drank my lunch, I juiced a Watermelon,Pineapple,Strawberry juice. It was FANTASTIC! So I was very happy - except for burping up the previous NASTY drink. Because it was Saturday, I spent the rest of the day lounging around alternating from the computer, tv, and reading. It was REALLY boring day. Throughout the day, I started feeling hungry. I think from the boredom. I was so bored that I began thinking about food. Although I was thinking about it, no part of me thought I wouldn't continue the fast, it was just passing thoughts. For the family's dinner, my mother cooked a HUGE roast turkey. The smell nearly drove me insane. Instead, I made a Carrot Apple juice and drank 20 oz of it. I have to tell you I REALLY do not like juicing vegetables. Even carrots - but it is the only vegetable that I can really stand to get down. I would rather just drink fruit juices all day.
So, I expected today to be a difficult day since everyone acts like its horrible. However, I haven't had ANY bad symptoms yet. There has been NOTHING negative at all that has happened so far on this juice fast besides a little hunger. I am doing everything right, so I'm not sure if my detoxing is happening or what!
Hopefully tomorrow is not as boring as today! I am off to watch the Patriots game :)
