Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts

Day 1 was sort of successful. I started the fast last night around lunch and dinner...I made it to dinner time today and the thought of having any more juice made me feel physically ill..My husband felt the same way. I realize that the first day is hard, but it was horrible haha...We have decided that completely fasting isn't going to work for us..so we are going to still drink lots of juice ( we got really good stuff at the farmers market today) but eat very healthy meals...tonight was not the appropriate example; we went to olive garden..BUT, we didn't let ourselves get super full..We feel sort of like failures, because we couldn't stick it out, but we've made a goal to drink 30oz of juice and continue with lots of water and eat stuff like soups (veggie broth based), salads, we got tons of apples and nectarines so just continuing with juice but eating...I cannot believe how difficult it is to fast. I knew I needed more to feel full but could not drink anymore ..i know its all in the mind; its just hard..
ANYWHO, I am super excited for my morning juice.. I'm not a smoothie fan because I despise yogurt or milk mixed with juice..BUT, i have found that bananas take that place. My favorite drink is apple, strawberry and banana..super simple and sooo tasty; i might add kale...haha obsessed much? haha.
I guess Day 1 wasn't that great, but I'm sure tomorrow will be better..
