Day 16 of 30 Day Juice Fast

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

1/1 sw: 239.2
1/8 222.2
1/15 219.4

Woke up with lots of energy. Struggled a little when I took my son to pizza hut. Didn't eat anything, but did take a few sips of diet coke and licked sauce off my finger after serving my son.

Finding that I am kind of bored with my juices. Need to change up my recipes, but not until I use what I have in the house.

Part of me is thinking about quiting after day 20 instead of going to 30. That might just be how I am feeling today though. I am feeling kind of down and not very enthusiastic right now. Think I am closing in on that TOM so hope that is all it is. I was so close to just saying forget it and eating some of that pizza today. I kept thinking that one piece wouldn't be horrible. I wasn't hungry, but somehow felt like I was missing something by not eating with my son. Isn't that i was spending quality alone time with him and I couldn't get past the fact that I wasn't eating. That is when I gave in to the diet coke. I only ended up taking a few sips of something I used to get three refills of, but I still feel guilty for doing it.

Hoping this mood goes away soon.

    Regarding your TOM: I got mine the first week of my cleanse and it was so much better. I only got mild cramps for a few hours...nothing like usual. Hope yours is better too!

    I was over it today too! I wonder if it's a natural "hump" we have to get over. I'm ending my fast a few days early.

    If you decide to stop early, just try to see the've accomplished so much in these days! Your body has been given time to heal, cleanse and is ready for you to nourish yourself with wholesome foods that nature intended for you to feed it.

    Good job resisting the pizza today! I know that's one of the hardest parts is our social and emotional connections with eating. You're doing great! I look forward to reading more about how you're doing.

    It will be interesting to see if having a clean system helps that TOM pass easier. Since foods can trigger bloating and crampiness, as well as effect our mood, I would think the juicing would help. Sodium would be reduced too. Hang it there at least that long, so we can find out!
