Am I crazy?
This has been the most common thought floating around my brain on day one of NINETY days on fresh juice. This is daunting, let me tell you. I don’t have any doubts that I can do it, I’m just feeling anxious about difficult days where I really, REALLY don’t want to. Long days at work, parties, going out, late nights…I didn’t pick a particularly slow and easy time in my life to do this but at the same time, it sort of feels like the time chose me.
Physically, day one has been easy so far though I still have the evening to get through and I anticipate that being the most challenging part. I feel really great and am LOVING including fruit juices for the first time in a fast. Thankfully I was off today and spent a heap of time gathering inspiration from the juice feasters who came before me. Curious to see some folks who’ve actually done this? Here are my favorite’s I’m catching up on:
Matthew and Victoria
In addition to feasting on juices and the above inspiration, I’ve hopped on board with a couple of other challenges (I LOVE a good challenge) that are meshing perfectly into my life at the moment. The first is the Organizational Challenge! This awesome blogger put together a really great 12 week Spring cleaning challenge that has my kitchen looking sparkly and the rest of my home just waiting to join in! The other challenge is the 21 day Chopra Meditation Challenge that Deepak Chopra teams up with Oprah to do. So far I’m not wild about this one but I’ll give it a few more days to see if it grows on me. I love the idea of meditation and I’m always saying I wish I had a regular practice but I’ve never committed to it. I also find most guided meditations to be a bit cheesy and I have a hard time taking them seriously.
I will be recording my daily juices in the above Juice Feast tab and will use this space to share how I’m feeling. In the meantime I’ll be trying to stay the heck away from Pinterest and all it’s tasty temptations However, if you’d like to follow along with my juice board, I’ll be taking advantage that quite often!
