    Day 8- The Monday Confession

    I made costly mistake day 6 (Saturday) by not drinking enough water and juice which I describe in more detail in an earlier post or in one of the groups I follow; nevertheless, Day 7 was a disaster. I woke up hungry, weak and sick. I barely had enough energy to make myself a quick juice. I did feel better, but now that I think back...I think mentally I was drained from all the nightmares of eating, lol

    I spent the day cooking and meal prepping for my husband. It was such torture smelling garlic, onions, and rice. I made chicken broccoli stir fry for the hubby. After I was done, I was DONE. My husband was worried and demanded that I eat something solid. I tried to resist, but deep down I knew I wanted something warm. I caved...ugggh

    I had a bowl of grits. So there it is. Funny thing is. I am not going to beat myself up, but I feel the need to be honest. Today is a new day. I am still trying to decide if I will add another day to make up for yesterday or just stay on 30 days.

    Day 6 (Saturday)

    I survived last night. The first hurdle was skipping the wine. Then it was dinner. I don't see my husband during the week because of his work so last night was the first time I had to sit next to someone eating. I didn't want to just sit there and sip on cold juice. I decided I would do something different...I juiced tomatoes, carrots, parsley, and celery. Then poured it into a pan...heated it for a few minutes...voila - juice soup! It was sooooo delicious and it was pure heaven once it hit my stomach. I definitely have to do this again.

    Day 5 (Friday)

    Last night was a little rough. After work, all I wanted to do was to sit down with a hot meal. Of course that was out of the question. I drank my juice and then fixed myself hot tea...The tea saved me. I think is was the warmth that calmed my cravings and urge to have food. I will have to remember that. Also I didn't sleep as well. I tossed and turned a lot due to achey hip and shoulder joints...detox? So now I am feeling a little foggy headed and tired. Hopefully as the day goes on I will perk up.

    I can't lie. I am nervous about the weekend. My husband is not juicing fasting with me; however, he fully supports me and my decisions. He has a juice for lunch, but still has regular dinners and etc. But...when it comes time to pour the wine...ughhh

    Day 4

    I am so glad day 3 is over! Everything was going so well until later that afternoon. My whole body started cramping. It almost brought me to tears. I was able to crawl to the kitchen, pull myself up and fix a glass of salt water, of course finding regular salt wasn't so easy. I have sea salt, himalayan pink, kosher, pickled and celtic...Then I remembered I keep regular table salt on the TABLE, lol Anyway a few shakes in my water and I felt some relief after a few minutes. Then I made a veggie juice with lots of celery, and broccoli. I continued to drink plain water getting in aproximately 128oz and I slept like a baby last night.

    So today I am going to research recipes that will support my workout schedule tonight. I will not make the mistake again of bringing just water :/

    Day 3

    I experienced really bad cramps last night. Actually, when I think back they started late afternoon. I started getting them in my sides. Later that evening, the cramps got real bad...legs, feet and back. I was so desperate that I actually added salt to my juice. It seemed to help, but I was so achey in bed. I finally did go to sleep and woke up feeling great. I have a light day today...just one class to teach so I will see how the dreaded day 3 will unfold.

    I plan to drink more juice than I have and drink more water.

    I just got back from teaching my Pilates class and was still experiencing minor cramps. Although not so bad that I couldn't continue the class, but still...uncomfortable.

    Day 2 is here and so far so good. I've got my juices ready and feel pretty optimistic. I've to teach Pilates this morning, but I don't think I will have any problems...we shall see.

    Today is day 1 of my 30 day juice fast. I've done 3, 5, and 7 day fasts. I will admit this length of time makes me nervous, but I am determined.
