Juice fast day 11
Monday, April 22, 2013
I lost another pound yesterday bringing the total to 14.
Yesterday was a good day juice-wise but I was suffering from a thyroid storm. I feel better today which surprises me, because they used to last between 2-3 days. It was bad weather also, so I really had a sedentary day, so the pound is a pleasant surprise.
As I inch closer to the two week mark, the days seem to pass more quickly. I've come to realize that my bad eating habits seem to center around boredom. On weekends I like to go out and we usually end up eating out at least two to three times. During the week, I snack on things while I'm on the couch-not necessarily bad food, but unnecessary food. Juicing had certainly reminded me of how little you really need to consume for fuel-something that I used to be quite conscious of, but seemed to forget along the way. I used to go for dinner and take half or more home, over the past year, I have started finishing my plates and even having dessert.
It is an interesting journey on a juice fast-you do learn about yourself, your weaknesses and your strengths.
My friends are starting to talk about the end-since they committed to two weeks. I guess I'm a bit jealous, but I haven't met my goal yet, so I'm just going to carry on, and be glad they embarked on this with me.
