One week down! I’m quite looking forward to passing the ten day mark as that’s as long as I’ve ever fasted/feasted in the past. This morning I woke up achy with bad breath and gooey stuff in my eyes. I’ve been craving tater tots like a madwoman (along with a bunch of foods from my childhood). As I suspected, a colonic cleared all those issues out. I have to admit though, the rest of the day has been kinda meh. I feel fine but not great, I’m a little overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done plus Britney’s out of town for a few days and I’m feeling kinda sad about it.
I’ve also been perusing the world of juice feasting blogs on the interwebs and find myself comparing my feast to others. Why do I have such a huge appetite? Do other people really struggle to get a gallon of juice in when I need a gallon minimum and could probably drink two?? Am I drinking too much fruit? I do work out every day but still…And then of course, I let myself get all panicky. Even though this is about so much more than fitting into tiny little jeans I find myself freaking out that I’ll look and feel the same at the end of 90 days as I did when I started. That’s generally been my history with vegetable juice fasting- I really don’t notice much of a difference. On the other hand, my colonics on veggie juices are pretty boring. With fruit juices added into the mix it’s a whole different story! It seems that the fruit is awakening a lot more that plain veg juices were. So. That said, I don’t know how I couldn’t make SOME sort of transformation when all of this stuff is coming out of me on a consistent basis.
Ok. Sorry for the downer of a post, I just didn’t want to pretend that every single day was magical when it appears there are going to be ups and downs.
