Help needed-can I begin my 1st reboot while at work?

FAQ

Posted by Quazza on 3 years ago

Hi all, I am almost age 40 (did I just say that?!) and I have never ever been without food. I am about to do my first ever reboot.

I have a very important question... can I start (or would you advise it to be alright or unwise) if I start my reboot while I am working? I am a high school teacher. Let me share my plan and reasons why I want to do this.

I want to start my reboot next Thursday. The reason for this is that if I wait for the holidays when I have time off of work, I will have all the time in the world to think of food and how badly I want it. I figure that if I start on Thursday while I am working then I will have work to distract me so that I won't be obsessing about food as much. I can do two days of juicing while I am at work to distract me and then have two days off for the weekend for days 3 and 4 on the juice fast.

Thursday (the day I would begin) I work until 4:00 pm and then I have a dentist appointment that is only one hour.

Then on Friday I work until 3pm and then I have a 2 hour hair appointment.

I will obviously have Saturday and Sunday off, then work again on Monday and will work the entire week before having 2 weeks off.

Does anyone see a problem with this plan? I've already bought a juicer and have been making juices the last week, so I am prepared. Any tips, advice, or suggestions? Again, it's my first time to do this. Thanks so much! I'm really excited to get started but also a bit apprehensive about my body protesting at the start :)

Cheers,

Quazza

    Hi Quazza

    I'm beginning day 5 and have found l need to be near a toilet day and night as l need to pee a lot more and the rest of my system is moving quicker too. For me days 3/4 were my craving meat and bread days and l'm a sugar/carb addict. Personally l'm glad l took the time off work but we are all different and it's sounds like you have a good plan.

    Hi Bridlestone thanks for your message! It's good to be reminded that I might need to be near a toliet - forgot about that! Do you think that it slows down after a week with needing to pee all the time? I'm also a sugar/carb addict and it's really, really bad - meaning that I am a MAJOR addict so I'm thinking it's going to be a major battle for me the first week with my body throwing tantrums! Are you exercising while on your reboot? I'm wondering if I should do some exercise... I'm going to look into that. The good news is that when I start my reboot I have two days of work (Thurs/Fri) then I work the next week but then I have two weeks off of work. For me personally, I just thought that work would help distract me from obsessing about food. We'll just have to see if this plan will work! Can't wait though to get started... I really need this. Thanks again and hope your going well! Maybe I can add you as a friend? Appreciate it :)

    Hi Quazza,

    I am about to wrap up a 30 day Reboot this week and I applaud your taking this on. Good for you. Individuals will offer advice about what worked and did not work for them. I had to ease into it for a couple of days by cutting down the amount and types of foods I ate. I am a one cup of coffee drinker (no sugar and soy based creamer) but could not give that up. I work with preschoolers! The first 3 or 5 days were admittedly a challenge. Thoughts of food crept in but I acknowledged them and let them fade off. And yes, like the previous comment from Bridlestone, stay near the toilet! I think the best advice I got from people in the groups I follow was to check in every day and see what others are up to. Find a group thats fits you. And, if you do slip up occasionally, don't be hard on yourself. I hope it goes great and enjoy the adventure.

    Hi Rob, Thanks for your nice comment! I appreciate you taking the time to respond! That's amazing that you have done 30 days! Great job! I've never done this before but desperately need it. Wow, my body is going to freak out because I'm just like Joe... addicted to junk food and have never ever had a break from food. Fortunately it's not an issue to give up caffeine for me but lots of other things are an issue, such as always having a feeling like I can't go without. For example, I always think that I might need something, so when we go on holidays/vacations I pack way more than we need, or even if I am leaving the house I have to pack snacks or take 10 water bottles (exaggerating a bit!) but now I need to just stop focusing on food and just make sure I have my juice ready to go. Do you have to go to the toilet all the time or is that just at the beginning of the juice fast? I'm really looking forward to breaking some bad habits and changing my eating habits for life. Thanks heaps for your support! Would love to add you to my friends :) Cheers!

    Hello Quazza

    The cravings will be tough, l had a headache for two days but l wanted to beat it . I started 22/03/16 and my craving for sugar has already gone! I didn't have one chocolate Easter egg and didn't feel sorry for myself either. For me the first week was painful l wasn't used to all the veggies and l hardly drink usually so bottles of water are daunting. To help this along l have hot water with lemon or orange, as lm still getting used to green tea.

    My strongest tip prepare food/juice in advance so you can grab it out of the fridge. If you have to fiddle around when hungry you will grab something easy to reach, which is. tasty nearly always in a bad way!

    I completed a 13 day juice fast, and that included working a full time job. I just made my juices the night before and kept them cold and in a dark bag, and drank them when I needed. You can definitely make it work!
