Well, I made it through swimming last night. I swam 1650 meters which is a little over one mile. I felt like lead the first 500 meters or so but then I settled in.
When I got home I was hungry but I didn’t feel like dealing with the juicer so I just had water, read for an hour, and went to bed. I was really tired.
This morning I got up and made the Green Goddess Juice I was planning to have last night and had it for breakfast instead of the Lemonade. It was DELICIOUS!!!! I loved it. I will drink that juice a few times a week! I also made the MS Green Juice again for lunch.
I had some intestinal issues this morning after drinking the green juice. I started moving out some things that have been in there a while. I only had liquids yesterday and nothing is coming out resembling those, so I think it is safe to say I am still eliminating food from Wednesday and prior. Aren’t you glad you read my blog and get to know this? I don’t feel great, but that is to be expected, this is a fast and a cleanse. I drank my soothing, spicy herbal tea to calm things down and relax me. Yoga breath helped, too.
I was hungry most of the morning after 10 which is not really the point of a juice fast, the point is to have as much fresh juice as I want. That will happen tomorrow, when I can be home and make juice whenever I am hungry. At work, however, I must rely on what I have available and ready and since there isn’t a lot of time or space to store things, it is what it is.
I had the MS Green Juice at noon. I was really dragging and wanted to sleep. The juice helped, but I was still really lethargic. I decided to walk at lunch and see if that helped at all. It didn’t. I have to be honest, if I feel tonight like I did last night this is going to be a 2 day juice fast to be continued later this month AFTER the triathlon… I need to workout for 2 hours tomorrow and I may not have been thinking straight. I didn’t think I would have this many detoxy symptoms because I eat so well, but Barcelona and our anniversary may have been just enough to make this unpleasant.
I guess you will all find out tomorrow what happens…
