DAY 3 of juice cleanse

Friday, July 12, 2013

OK. Here I am on the third day of this program and its luster has started to wear away. Last night I was hungrier than the night before but it was still manageable. As long as I could distract myself, I was fine. I woke up this morning, with not as much energy as yesterday, but still not bad. I wasn't groggy and sluggish but I wasn't raring to go, either.

Got to work and around 9am grabbed my first juice. I only finished half before deciding I didn't even want the rest. There's a slight tinge of hunger that I am barely aware of but my interest has waned. To be honest, my mood isn't as stable as yesterday either. I'm easier to shake and I feel a bit tired. I will continue on and get through this but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't thinking about food more.

My body feels light and clean. I feel skinny and unbloated. I'm curious what dumping food into my system tomorrow will feel like. I'm carefully weighing my options and deciding what I will choose to eat. Whatever it is, it will be unprocessed and healthy. Regardless, I have another day to get through before that happens.

    Thank you for sharing your experiences...I am enlighted. I see food it a different light. I am struck with the fact that you are deciding what food to cross the threshold first...this idea of reintroducing food is intriguing...it holds some significance really. Something we take for granted becomes ceramonial.

    Day three is typically the 'crash' day, Holley. You're right on schedule, apparently...lol. It takes the first 48 hours just to get all of the OLD sh*t out of your system so that by the third day, you feel drained and down.
    But by tomorrow, you'll be getting energy and clarity!
    You should have been in bed today, Mama ;-)~ I always start a juice cleanse on a Friday so I'm in bed on Sunday...lolol.
    You'll make it! It's eye-opening to discover REAL hunger...
