Day 3 of Juice Fast/Feast

Hiya everyone! I just wanted to do a quick post to tell you about my day 3. It was so much better!! :) No headaches today...I think it was more like a migraine yesterday just terrible. Today I woke up in a good mood and could tell that I felt different. In good spirits and everything.

I'm sure I didn't drink enough today. I think that I only had a total of 32 oz of juice today and 64oz of water. I know it's not enough but I did eat a little something for dinner. So I can't technically say that I'm "fasting" so maybe I'll call it a juice "feast." Regardless, I'm eating (drinking) WAYYYYY more fruits and veggies than normal and I'm giving my digestive system somewhat of a break. So I'm happy! Plus I never would drink this much water. My bathroom trips have slowed down some, but maybe that's because I'm not drinking as much as I did yesterday...IDK. I'm still going pretty regular but more like every hour instead of every 20 min. like yesterday.

Dinner tonight was a baked sweet potatoe. I'm so proud of myself because I normally load it down with butter, cinnamon, and white sugar...but tonight I only sprinkled a little bit of cinnamon and had 1 packet of raw turbinado sugar...I repeat 1 packet! That required a lot of self-control for me. I know that I have a major sugar and carb addiction bad, bad, bad. However my sweet potatoe was delicious! I think not eating food all day wakens up your taste buds and everything has so much more flavor. I also had about 8oz of a green veggie juice after eating my sweet potatoe and I must say I'm pretty full. Right now it's 9:30pm and I'm going to finish up my jar of water and do some reading.

I tried to post a picture of my dinner but I can't figure out how to do that yet from this iPad, so maybe tomorrow. Technology Gheesh! 

Oh I almost forgot to tell you...I made an exciting purchase today!! And now I'm going to leave you hanging...ha ha stay tuned!

Until next time...~Yvette

Days 1 and 2 of Juice Feast/Fast

I will recap my feelings about Days 1 & 2 of me can only get better.

Day 1 I started out excited and ready to go. But as the day progressed I started feeling really sluggish and wanted to eat so bad! My brain was kinda in a fog and it still is because I can't remember much about the day except that I was miserable and in the bathroom every 20minutes. On to day 2!

Day 2 Migraine all day and still have it currently as I type and it's 7:30pm. I woke up with a headache, but decided that I was going to tough it out because the day had to go on right?! Wrong! I got up juiced enough for breakfast and lunch packed everything up and left home to go through with my day but after 30minutes I had to turn around and come home and get in the bed. Major detoxing going on over here. I thought that I needed something with some substance to eat so I went in the kitchen around 1pm and cut up some pineapple and strawberries...but couldn't eat it. Looking at it made me nauseous. So I hope tomorrow is a better day.

I will share with you my reasons for juicing in the future when my head clears. Hope everyone is well. Pleas excuse any typos or rumblings...I'm not in the mood to proofread.

Until next time...
