Wednesday, August 6, 2008, Day 3 of juice fast
Weight 209.4 6.6 lbs. since starting my juice 48 hours ago. Total loss 23.6 lbs.
Feels great to break the 210 barrier. It been almost 6 years since I have weighed between 205-209 lbs.
That's a huge drop. I know it is directly related to the amount of cardio and sauna sessions I have been doing. I have not felt too weak. Last night, after drinking my rooibos tea, I starting feeling some hunger pangs, but they went away after 30 minutes or so. Since I juiced fasted for 9 days a couple of weeks ago, I know what to expect the first couple of days on the fast. I am going to make some oolong tea this morning and then I will have some cranberry/grape juice with green vibrance to when I get back from taking my daughter to school today.
This morning I made some oolong tea and drank it first thing. Before I left, I poured some diluted cranberry in a bottle along with a measure of green vibrance so I could sip it while I was out this morning. After running a few errands, I came home and my wife made me a blueberry/orange with wheat germ and flaxseed drink. I rested for about an hour or so and got ready to go to the gym.
I was excited to recieve my kombucha starter the afternoon so I went to Walmart to buy the things I need to start brewing my own tea. I brewed some green tea, but had to wait for it to cool down so I could add my starter. I poured the leftover tea in a bottle and took it to the gym with me.
We started with 20 minutes in the dry sauna followed by 45 of cardio on the eliptical and I finished with 25 minutes in the dry sauna. Before I went to workout, my energy level was a bit low. I kept my heart beat in the 130 range the entire time on the trainer.
We I got home, I was feeling weak and hungry. I hate walking out of the 24 hour fitness and smelling the food from the Pei Wei restaurant. Every restaurant we past smelled delicious. I notice my sense of smell is quite heightened. When I arrived home, I made a banana/blueberry smoothie with kefir. It tasted pretty good. I had to round out the tart taste with splenda.
Before I took a shower, I hopped on the scale and was shocked to see the scale read 207. That's 8 lbs. in 72 hours. I don't know if the tea is helping or it's the extreme workouts, or long dry sauna sessions, but the weight seem to melting away at tremendous clip. I know my body will begin to adjust and I know my weight loss will slow down the further into the fast, but so far, it has'nt.
