Three Day Reboot with Joe = JUICING!

Monday, January 06, 2014

Inspired by Joe Cross & his documentary film Fat Sick & Nearly Dead, I recently completed the three days of juicing. A juicer came in our stocking this year, wink wink, and so I got started with it.

My experience was deep, and this is a superficial listing of thoughts on it all:
1. Crankiness and brain fog to be expected for first day or two
2. I stared at inanimate objects thinking about food, a lot, for minutes at a time.
3. I was living more in my mind and less in my stomach.
4. I wondered if this is why God asks us to fast.
5. I spent less time chewing and more time thinking.
6. I was not as easily angered overall, meaning that I was more peaceful, because I was subdued with hunger!
7. I journaled everyday, several times.
8. I tried lots of recipes, and only came near to vomiting once with a drink labeled for anti-stress, using tomato, parsley, onion, red pepper, lemon, etc.. If you count trying not to blow chunks as a stress reliever, that would fit.
9. I felt great by day 3, and even did a Biggest Loser DVD workout.
10. I would totally do it again.

Gained clarity, a refreshed palate for greens and fruits, a mini-detox of body & spirit. It was spectacular (and that doesn't mean easy, okay. Often what's worth having is worth working for.)

Support from my husband made this a success.
Blessings to you in 2014 and Happy New Year!

    Awesome!! I'm glad you had such a good experience. :) I'm on day 4 of 7, and feeling pretty euphoric today.

    LOL that was funny about the anti stress juice part.

God bless you for trying this detox juice.

I'm trying to eat veggies along with my breakfast.

    After reading this and seeing the number 10 "totally do it again" , I have to give you a emoticon

Don't know that I would repeat an experience like that!
