day 13 juice fast
Saturday, April 20, 2013
I missed my blogging yesterday. Life got a bit busy, plus my hubby was home sick and bogarted the computer. I wonder where that word comes from? Was Humphry Bogart selfish? Poor baby (my hubby, not Bogart), he doesn't handle colds very well.
I am getting off topic. Anyway, I am still fasting and it is going well. I don't think I will weigh myself even every week though. I really was thrown for a loop when I didn't have a loss. I was OK when I weighed but the next day was a struggle. I think I will only weigh when I show other signs of loss such as loose clothes and such. I know that there is no way that I will not succeed. I also know that with my various hormonal issues, it won't be at the rate of someone without them.
I listen to books on tape a lot, when doing dishes, gardening and any other activity where I don't have others around. Today I downloaded a book by Steven King called Quitter Inc. After I confirmed my request to borrow the book from the library and started downloading, I saw that it was only 43 minutes long. I haven't listened to one of his books for a while (they tend to be a bit dark for me), but he has always had good sized books. I am only allowed 3 downloads a week. To say I was disappointed, is putting it mildly. I just got done listening to it. It's about a man who joins a quit-smoking program without knowing that the program's success is due to extreme aversion therapy starting first with hurting his wife if he would smoke, then he and his wife, and so on, each punishment getting worse if he would choose to light up. I just gave you the whole book and have ruined it for you if you were planning to read it, but hey, it isn't as if it had much going for it.
The book did get me thinking though. If I would put high consequences on bad chooses, how many times would I mess up? In the story, he never lite up after the first mess up and having to see his wife go through some painful shock treatment, but how would I do? I have never smoked, but I do eat things that I know are not good for me. I have gluten intolerance, yet when pizza is around I do have a piece or two. I suffer for it afterwards with extremely sore joints and who knows what else, but it must to worth it, since even now when I am fasting, I probably would eat a piece or two if it were around. I hope I wouldn't, but I don't feel as if I am strong enough to have the pizza around. I'll have to experiment with a pizza flavored juice, LOL.
I am hoping that by the end of this, I will have the strength. I know I am getting stronger. Thank you again for the support.
