Too Much Too Fast?
Sunday, February 12, 2012
Bwahaha. I wasn't trying to be witting in my title, but perhaps after I tell you this blog is about doing a juice *fast* you then realize it's a little funny.
I had the itch last week while I was ordering my weekly dose of fresh pressed juice from a little company in Nashville... that I would do a 3-day cleanse. I didn't really research it and just ordered like 16 bottles of 16oz juices to get me through my 3 days.
Last night I watched, "fat sick and nearly dead" and that will get you wanting to juice in a jiffy. So I decided (after weighing in this morning at 162.8! :/) that today (Sunday) would be a great day to start a 3-day juice fast.
The morning started off well, with some kale, beet, apple, ginger juice and drank almost 1.5liters of water by the time church was over. Then lunchtime came, and I was wanting some of those kalbi ribs hubby was cooking on the grill. I drank some more juice and water, and was starting to get kinda tired. I was trying to muster up the energy to go workout... since I hurt my toe Monday night... it's definitely put a damper on my workout routine. Throw in my period and crappy eating, hence the 162.8lbs this morning. No surprise... I know I need to work out and eat well to lose and maintain... but if I don't... then 162.8 happens. Needless to say, I started reading 3-day cleanse stuff on the internet... and most of them said, "do it when you can rest and take it easy" well then...
Instead of going to the gym I watched part of the "The Gerson Miracle" and took a nap. Waking up I feel a bit better... but of course I want something to eat, and I'm not too sure I'll be able to keep this up through the work week... especially with all the working out I'm required to do.
Which kind of makes me feel like a failure. I don't like to start something and not finish it. I don't like not meeting my goals. But, as my husband reminded me... I have a lot on my plate (to include most likely a chance of flying to Colorado this upcoming weekend for a work trip-which kinda bums me out... missing out on an ideal 3-4day period of being able to rest and fast).
I've had to modify my goal- a one day juice fast. And realistically, looking back I realized that to include the juice I drank after my nap, I had only had 3 8oz glasses of juice. Not sure if that was necessarily enough. And realistically, the REAL goal here was getting back on track.
So here I am...getting back on track. :D
