Juice fasting day 5


Friday, June 14, 2013

Once again I found day 5 a challenge. My brain was working double time yesterday trying to get me craving everything I saw on tv as I nurses my headache. I started the day with a nice orange ginger lemon sparkling juice. I needed something extra for the migraine-usually I load up on carbs which helps shorten the length-but juice had to do. For lunch I juiced a couple carrots, tomatoes, celery, onion, garlic and spinach and then warned the juice in a pot with some fresh basil and turmeric. It was a delicious light soup. For dinner I had my spicy vegetable cocktail as usual. I'm up 0.8 pounds today, but I assume that has to do with taking medication for the headache and that it's that time of the month.

Do a two week fast rather than 30 days is harder and easier at the same time. In some ways the mental preparation for a long fast sort of turns you off the idea of food more than one where you know next week you will be cooking again. I keep thinking about what im going to eat next week, or what groceries I'm going to buy. When I had anticipated a 30 day fast I really wasn't burdened with these thoughts. I suppose I didn't really have to go through the end phases of the fast because my doctor took me off unexpectedly.

I have been craving grilled cheese sandwiches and smoked salmon-we plan to go fishing on the weekend so maybe I can get some trout cured and ready to smoke by the time my fasting is done.

Another writing day-i have to make up for not doing anything yesterday.
