On Day 4 of our juice fast!
So things are going well - it's just really hard to rid yourself of the feeling/habit that you have to "EAT" 3 times a day. Not to mention the mindless snacking, or tasting I would do making the kids' dinner just a week or two ago! I am going to buy some chicken today and make David some baked chicken nuggets I can keep in the freezer to heat up a few times a week. He also has had a quesadilla for dinner, and last night RR picked up Chick Fil A for him, so that has helped me not have to mess with food too much! Easy meals for him make it easier for me to not feel any temptation!
This is definitely doable, people! I had my doubts on day 1, but a juicing fast has been easier than I thought. Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead was such an inspiration! One thing I learned - I won't do a huge produce buy again - I'm still trying to finish juicing all that! Once our Vitamix arrives, it will be easier, but our current juicer is so difficult to clean, and I have to do everything in SMALL batches when I use it. So I am juicing for about 1 1/2 hours a day, but it still takes forever to get through our purchases from Saturday night! (For example - 3 small bunches of spinach took me 40 minutes!) Can't wait to get our Vitamix!
Hope y'all are having a great week!!
PS ~ Is the pollen bad where you are? It SUCKS here!! I'm taking Claritin-D but it is not helping much!
