I made it a week…like seriously it has been a week since I had solid foods; absolutely amazing.
Today is also the beginning of our last “new” batch of juices and apparently our juice master has gone into the lab and created a fresh bath of juices. The weekend juices were super yummy, but he’s been using actual recipes and this time he’s straight winging it. They were ok, but it was clear that these were “guesses” on what went well together (stay tuned at the end of the fast I’ll break down the recipes and what I thought).
Day 7 was pretty normal altogether. I’m starting to miss actually eating. It is not that I don’t like the juicing, but I don’t think I’m ready for an extension past 10 days though. I am very excited to have a juicer of my own to start supplementing my post fast eating with my own juice concoctions.
Starting anything sucks. Whether it is a new job or a new diet or a new pair of shoes, there is always some trepidation in it for me. As much as starting sucks, I believe I am even worse at finishing things. It has been a chronic issue since my childhood. I start with great intentions on working out, or writing, or losing weight, or reading more and then I get bored or apathetic or busy or something and all that positive mojo goes right out of the window. At this point of the fast I’ve accomplished way more than I truthfully thought I would. There’s absolutely no way I’m not going to finish this process.
I’m going to lay off from the journal the final few days and simply give you guys the results on Friday. I’ve got a lot of things in my head though that I would like to explore with the blog in the near future. I’m really excited to be a little more healthy, a little less beefy, and ultimately a lot more inspired. All of this from juice? The Lord does work in mysterious ways.
