Day 1/60 Juice fast...

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

So far so good. I ain't gonna lie, today was a breeze but, the 1st day usually is for me. I am excited, motivated, and the juice tastes awesome. I just have to keep my momentum going.

I thought I would take this opportunity to reflect and to maybe work on the internal dialogue that I have often had with myself. One thing that I do like about a juice fast is that it gives you time to think about things. I know for me, I often eat when I'm bored, happy, sad, etc. Just being present with myself and actually letting myself FEEL those feelings without trying to cover them up with food can be very, I don't know, enlightening. It certainly gives you time to reflect and really examine your life and you habits.

Its kinda like how when the electricity goes out in your house, you didn't notice its control over your life until it was gone. Obviously we need food to survive but, most of the time we spend with food isn't to promote life and health but to fill a void. I know, I don't mean to get all deep, just some of the things I was thinking about today.

    I have always been a "I live to eat" type of person, so changing over to this whole "eat to live" mentality is challenging, but it's obviously so much better for us on all levels. It's amazing how simple juice can satiate an appetite and keep you going all morning long.
