Juice Fast Day 8

Friday, April 19, 2013

So I didn't do an entry for yesterday because I was out celebrating. Yesterday I finished my second novel-well the first draft, I now need to get into editing zzz. It was sad because when I started writing in November, I had imagined I would celebrate with a bottle of something fizzy and a night on the town. I hadn't thought that I would finish during a juice fast!

My boyfriend insisted I still mark the occasion, and so I was bad-we went to listen to some music and I had a glass of champagne. I didn't eat anything, which was hard with all the yummy plates around me, and when we got home I tried some of the herb broth I made earlier in the day as a special treat. We decided to go for a nice evening out when I'm done the fast.

To be supportive my boyfriend has also been fasting, he's lost about 14 pounds so far and although he hates it and finds it really challenging, he can't deny how good he feels. He's already moved a notch on his belt.

I still lost 0.5 today, so that brings my total to 12 pounds :)

Btw, my herb broth was delicious! I had no idea a thin soup without salt could be so comforting and satisfying.

    Congratulations both on the loss and the completion of the book!
    You are still on plan and one small beep doesn't do anything in the grand scheme of things,
    Kudos to the boyfriend for being such a trooper. It makes life so much easier when you have a support system at home.
