Juice Fast Day 4
Tuesday, April 16, 2013
Well the day is coming to a close and I am finishing up my fourth day juicing. I can tell that I'm going to grow tired of the juices, as there are only so many combinations and flavored that you can get with green vegetables, apples and tomatoes. I have found that I'm not hungry, and the juice is unappetizing so I basically am drinking them down quickly just to fill up. I guess a lot of getting through it is changing the idea of eating-where I once used to eat because I enjoyed the cooking, presentation, creativity and experience; I now have to eat for sustenance. The foodie in me is pouting... But only for 26 more days.
I was less energetic today than yesterday, but I still managed to get out for a walk. I've inspired two friends to try the fast for 14 days-both started today and have mixed feelings. I've had weird cravings today. It started with a dream this morning that I had broken my fast by eating a hot dog. In my dream I was so remorseful because I don't even like hot dogs. I also had a craving for garlic cheese bread... I don't think I've ever had garlic cheese bread. So strange...
Today moved more quickly than the last two, where I felt very aware that I was fasting, and waiting for the next juice. Today I was less concerned and just fell back into my routine.
Looking forward to day five :)
