And on the evening of the 8th day, I failed. Okay, failure is too strong a word. I don't like that, it doesn't really apply, because I have NOT failed. Let's say I had a setback. Everyone can recover from a setback, but failure is pretty complete. And I am not done, nor will I let this setback get me down. What was my setback? I gave into temptation/boredom and had 2 cupcakes and 2 oatmeal cookies, 2 oz of string cheese, and about 20 whole wheat crackers. Why that stuff was even in the house I don't know, but because I was so bored, I just wanted to eat. Today I am back on my juice fast and I guess I am starting back on day 1, instead of day 9.
I am going to try and experiment with the different juicers I have. I have a very old Oster, which I've been using, a Magic Bullet, and a Vitamix. I think I would like to add some of the mulch from the veggies & fruits back into my drinks. That will give me more of a full feeling. I will try just with the fruits first, purify them in the Vitamix or Magic Bullet, then add that liquid to my juice. I think that added fiber (whole food) will help. I know it has beneficial properties. Will keep you posted!
