Group Reboots

Posted by TeelaHerman.com on 6 years ago I will be starting a 40 day juicing fast to go along with lent. Is anyone else out there planning the same thing? This will be my first fast so I am going to need lots of support.

    Day one went pretty well. I'm not sure that I'm fringing enough juice- I only made 2 recipes- but I wasn't very hungry today. The smell of food definitely started to get to me tonight though. I'm drinking as much water as I can remember to drink. I'm very bad at figuring out how many ounces of anything I'm making or consuming. I didn't have very bad side effects today at all. A little bit of dizziness is all. I managed to get my 2-year-old to take a nap today, so that time to nap helped me too. I'm scared if tomorrow because I have to work and actually be nice to people no matter how I'm feeling. Saturday- my day 3- will be the worst. I work 9 hours that day. I'm trusting God for strength through all this. I'm already finding myself justifying cutting the plan short or cheating with organic food. That's the worst part. Good night!

    I tried to start 2/14,but the hunger pangs combined with coffee withdrawals and nausea, is making this transitions very cumbersome. I will try to have more produce handy, as well as making sure I consume 4 to 6 16oz juices throughout the day as recommended. I`m more than happy to embark in this treacherous journey with you guys!! we are in this together cheers!

    Good morning, everyone! How's everyone feeling? I'm starting day 3 and feeling pretty good. Again, I need to really focus on my water intake. I'm having a hard time drinking the water I need to drink. I'm down 2.2 lbs since yesterday making my grand total of 4 lbs lost. I'm feeling good, my skin looks much younger....I'm ready to face the day! Good luck, CNB4. I loooove my coffee so I totally know where you are coming from. And have to deal with customers? Yikes. I'm dealing with some social issues one of my 5 year olds is having and it's really testing me because usually when faced with problems like this, I'd run to the nearest fast food place and eat my feelings away. I just hate it when our kids are having trouble.

    I woke this morning feeling VERY weak and wanting to hurl. I had nothing in my stomach, but the threat was intense. If my muscles didn't know how to operate on their own I would not have been able to get out of bed. Raising my arms was the worst and this is a huge issue because I'm a hair stylist. I am useless without my arms. All of this resulted in me cheating. I think I need to start on a Tuesday because I don't work on Wednesday or Thursday. Also, today the thought of juice is repulsive to me and brings back the desire to hurl. In 24 hours my skin did look brighter and clear up some. Also, I lost 2 lbs. but like I said before, this isn't about weightloss for me.

    Dear CNB, I'm sorry to hear you feel so bad today. Do you feel like you might be going through a detox period? My son and I are starting with the 15-day reboot plan which allows for solid foods for the first few days, easing into the full juicing. Maybe that plan (found on the reboot tab) would be an easier transition for you?

    Day Two 1. Report on Day One--I did OK with the first juice I made, but the second was terrible! I used THREE cucumbers, two small sweet potatoes and a 1 lb bag of carrots (trying to make this stuff in batches). The cucumber took over and ruined the whole thing. Lesson: Make a small batch FIRST, then taste it. 2. I had to go to a Starbucks to get some paperwork done and ordered an herbal tea, which I think is OK. But I was away from home long enough to get not only hungry, but a bit SAD about being hungry--and then it occurred to me that I would have to experience this hunger/sadness for the next 10 days, which led me to: 3. BIG MISTAKE--Stopping on the way home at "Total Wine and More" for my favorite (well, when not juice fasting) beer. I rationalized: beer IS "liquid," and the process of beer-making involves lots of vats and condensation, etc etc--which can''t be all THAT different from juicing! (The cucumbers must have addled my brain--either that or I can basically rationalize ANYTHING.) 4. Arriving home, rather than drink Juice #2 that I prepared, I had a beer. After that I felt sick and thought I might GET sick, so I ate some little whole-grain crackers. It did help, but that also means I officially BLEW IT. (Recommendation: Don't drink alcohol while juicing as the carbonation is multiplied in your stomach by 1000% and you'll feel like exploding.) SO, the only real problem I had yesterday was-----ME!!! Today I am going to the gym and then the Dr, and on the way home I am going to get more vegetables along with a couple of limes, as this will add good flavor. I think. Teela--I remember my daughter's first real snub in Kindergarten. We live in Southern CA but the community of school parents is pretty "tight." One of her new "best friends" had a birthday, and the little girl announced it to the entire class. The mom came to the classroom after school, and my daughter approached her and said, "What time is Ludmilla's (not her real name) party?" And the mom said, "Well, not EVERYbody is invited, and you are not one of them." And I was standing RIGHT THERE. If there's ever a minute I wanted to clock somebody, that was it. My daughter was crushed, and on the day of that party we did something fun ourselves--I can't remember (probably Chuck E Cheese, as a giant costumed rat and pizza can turn any day around). I hope your little guy's situation clears up soon. One thing I learned is that while our instinct is to protect them and come to their defense, and it almost hurts to type this--they do learn about themselves and human nature and how to cope with it if we let them work some of it out on their own. All my best to you! Pam

    CNB4, I am so sorry to hear that you felt that bad. I wonder if drinking a big green drink before bed would help with the hunger pains in the morning? I hope you start feeling better and I hope to see you back here in a few days! Pam, yes! I kind of taste as I go and LIMES ARE MY BEST FRIEND! Some of the tastiest drinks I make are with limes. I've found that I even like to juice the peels to give it more of a kick. And my mind has also been really trying to trick me by rationalizing everything under the sun. It's amazing how truly addicted to food I am. And thank you so much for your advice. I know the hardest part of being a parent so far is knowing when to sit back and let things work themselves out. I went and talked to my pastor today (much more affordable than therapy!) and he thinks my son needs to get some psychological help, and he isn't the first one to suggest this so I think I know my next step. It's just so scary. I know I need to call and find a doctor right now.....but I'm telling myself, "it's a Friday. You won't get anywhere. Worry about it on Monday." Ad you know what, since I am already going through so much, I am going to listen to myself on this one. I'll spend the weekend with the family and first thing Monday morning, I'll tackle this. I'm on day 3 and I've found that I am not very hungry and damnit, I sound like a broken record but I am having the hardest time getting in the water I need. I know if I don't drink up today, I am going to eriously regret it tomorrow.

    For some reason, the thread stops before the most recent entries that I received via email. UPDATE: Weigh-in at the gym this morning reveals a FIVE POUND LOSS from last week (even with the beer and crackers)!!! SO KEEP GOING EVERYBODY!!! JUST HAVE A CRACKER IF YOU ARE GOING CRAZY AND YOU WILL FEEL BETTER, I promise. Sorry for yelling but i just had to holler for a second! Teela--I wish we lived closer! You sound really amazing. More later!! I have to revise 6 poems which I am reading at a poetry festival in less than two hours!! Good luck everyone--keep going and keep posting!!! Pam

    I weighed in at 215 today which is 6 pounds down since Wednesday. No arguing with that. I do miss chewing food though. Pam I can understand the whole day feeling like you are on a sled going downhill at 60 miles per hour wondering what the heck is happening. Way to go on the weight loss and getting back on the bike so to speak. You know the old saying - if you fall off your bike just get right back on and start pedaling? Teela - I know how scary this time may be but having your pastor tell you this is easier than someone else. If you feel comfortable and trusting of your pastor as we all should then he or she will be easy to go back to once you have more information or have consulted a child psychologist. I don't know if I'm making any sense but I guess what I'm trying to say is that even though we just met I'm, and we're here for you. Guess what guys? We are almost done with day three!!!!! -Liesl
