Day 3: 169lbs.
My first juice consisted of:
3 1/2 fuji apples
small bunches of red grapes
cubes of cucumbers
3 romaine lettuce leaves
1/2 - 1 cup of spinach
My second juice consisted of:
3 small gala apples
3 romaine lettuce leaves
1/2 cup spinach
4 small pieces broccoli
*This contains probably the most vegetables of all the juices I've had so far. It tastes like celery. It's not too bad... but I mean... I don't usually just grab stalks of celery and munch on them so, the taste isn't too appealing. And I don't have enough apples and or carrots in the juice so it's not too sweet. This is the worst tasting juice I've had so far. And now I have to choke down 28 oz. of it. Gross.
7:50A: I went to bed around 10pm but I woke up around 3:30am. And then I kinda just stayed awake. I tried sleeping again around 4 and managed to get a few more hours of tossing and turning before getting up around 7:30. I dreamt about tattoos and music. I don't really know what to think about the fact that I can't sleep. It's not like I'm tired or groggy. Of course I wake up feeling pretty steady and maybe even a little refreshed... especially for someone who hasn't gotten too many hours of sleep. But it leaves my mind open to some thinking... and I'm always thinking about Whiskey and I kinda wished it would stop. But last night I was trying to think up some negative thoughts about him, and I don't know if it was the juice or if I was listening to some upbeat music or both but it was like my mind just wasn't having it. The bad thoughts about Whiskey just sort of... disappeared like my mind was trying to tell me: Hey! We're getting rid of all these toxins in your body. That means in your mind too! It was nice.
I had to stop and think for a moment about when the last time I was in the 160's. I think it was almost five years ago! It feels great. Of course, I know that it's water weight but it still feels amazing! So since January 1st, 2008, I've lost a total of 26lbs. and at least 33lbs. overall. I went on a 3 + mile walk in the snow today. It was beautiful. We got a few inches last night and it was blue sky and sunshine this morning. A real winter wonderland. I plan to do my leg pilates and some abs. I will also do 15 girly pushups.
Changes in the body: other than my stomach looking a little less bloated, there is not much difference. I don't have fuzzy teeth yet. I guess I look a little refreshed but nothing too noticeable like super bright eyes or dewy skin. I have bouts of bad acne on my chin and it's going away but I'm not sure if it's because of the juicing or because it's that time of the month where my acne goes away. I have a stuffy nose but it could be due to the fact that I'm just getting over a cold and plus we have a house guest who sounds like he's coughing up a lung every night. But I notice that when I get the sniffles and I sniff, it... tastes bad... or smells bad, or something. Very mucus-y and just gross. I probably should learn to blow it out. It seems to keep going back into my system. I had one BM so far. A very WHOOOSH feeling. It was dark green and looked like seaweed. Ew.
My only worries today is that I juice enough fruits and vegetables to fill my 28oz. bottle of Gatorade. I drink it through out the day (half day and then I juice again for the second half of the day). I keep it with me and I don't put the juice in the refrigerator and I wonder if I'm losing nutrients due to that. I only want to juice twice a day as I don't really want to waste time chopping up everything and washing everything so many times. Other than that... the juicing is going well so far! I do have a lot of time to think about things (which isn't always that great) but I feel good. We haven't gone out to eat or anything so it's easy to stay in my room while others eat solid foods but tomorrow we may go out and of course they'd want to eat dinner. I want to juice before hand and maybe they can drop me off at a book store or something and pick me up later. I know if I go into the restaurant with them I will be tempted to eat. Maybe I can have soup?
