Juice fast day 6
Thursday, April 18, 2013
Today I contemplated building a time machine to speed up time... Hehehe
Things got better later in the day when I lost myself in my writing and got back into my usual routine. I've opted to drink 3 juices a day instead of 4-5 smaller ones, because I'm bored of the taste of them. I spent some time calculating the calories and was surprised at how many calories and carbs there are in the fruit juices-45 per serving of green juice compared to 350 for mixed fruit and vegetable. Plus 80 carbs in the fruit juice. I'm going to save the fruits for the days I work out.
I lost 0.6 pounds today, which is fine, but considering how hard yesterday was, it was a bit deflating. I was also told by my doctor today that I have to stop my fast three weeks prior to my surgery in order to be checked properly for my pre-op tests. So that means I have to shorten my fast by 4 days :(
Other than wanting to lick the tv screen every time a commercial comes on, I feel really energized and happy. I've had more patience and sleep better, and I'm excited to get up an do things-though today I was stuck inside working.
I can't believe tomorrow is one week-I'm excited to see my total weight loss for the week when I step on the scale in the morning :)
