Morning Weight: 146.4
I slept very deeply until around 6 am but forced myself to go back to sleep. This is a whole new bag. I don't work on Fridays so I was nervous that all the endless hours of idle hands and idle brain would get to me and I'd start reaching for solid food. The weight loss was a great way to start the day. Though I'm sure it was mostly water I'm still happy to see it gone.
Oh yeah LOTS of trips to the bathroom with all this fluid consumption. I had also taken a cup of Laci LeBeau's Super Dieter's Tea before bed last night and that kicked in right around 11 am.
I finally told my roommate about the diet and she was very supportive. She was going to the Coffee Bean and said she assumed I probably didn't want to go but I did go and went for a drive and was definitely feeling a lot more tempted that the day before but I was good and carried my jug of juice under my arm when we went in to order.
I did notice that I was hyper sensitive emotionally, just by myself. I very rarely cry and yet I teared up two or three times throughout the day just thinking of different scenarios in my life. This could also be that I'm due for my period in three days but I never get weepy like that! It's probably a combo of both.
I drank another 32 oz bottle of Apple Juice and a little papaya juice and some more of that tea.
I'm still so suprised at the lack of cravings. I honestly feel like I crave more on a normal day when I'm eating real food.
If I could have anything to eat it today it would be a Reuben sandwich! One of the best things about reading online about juice fasts is that you learn quickly that you can't just break your fast with anythign withought becoming violently ill. Knowing that I'll have to have a few days of just fruit, or veggies and maybe some brown rice makes the idea of cheating kind of pointless. If I have that bag of chips I will have horrible intestinal cramping for days. Well that does it. Desire for the chips is put away.
Also I realized how much of my day was spent around meals, or buying food for later. I really can't figure out what to do with myself or where do go now that I'm not looking for food. The only thing I feel bad about is that the day before I decided to do this diet I bought 4 huge papayas and a bunch of kiwis and sweet potatoes. Sadly those will all go bad now. I guuess I could freeze them maybe?
I tried to go to bed at 8:30PM again so I would not be tempted. I took one tylenol pm, no luck, I took another later, still no luck, sometime around midnight I fell into a deep sleep.
