10 Days of Juicing: A Health New Us
So today is the 10th day of our juice fast and I must say it has been a little rough. It has been difficult being around people who are eating food that looks and smells so good. When I say looks and smells good though I am not even referring to things like pizza and hamburgers because this fast has caused me to be somewhat repulsed by such non-nutritional and greasy fatty foods. When I say food that smells and looks good I am talking about healthy foods like lean chicken breasts and salads with avocado. Mmmm!!! I am definitely looking forward to eating healthy once this fast is over. I have been researching different healthy homemade recipes for when our fast is over, which makes me even more excited for a new healthier us!!!
I haven’t posted in a few days because I had to work over the weekend and then went to Alabama yesterday to watch my little cousin graduate high school. That was pretty tough being around all the good food and alcohol. I use to drink alcohol quite a bit, so saying no when offered it a huge achievement for me! Especially when I was around so many people I didn’t really know (my cousin’s dad’s side of the family). Anyways, I did great! Although I was a bit tempted to take a small bite of the chicken, I kept to my fast and drank a fresh juice I had brought with me. Plus, I knew that after being on a fast for 10 days my body would probably spend a lot of energy digesting the food causing me to be even more exhausted on my 5 hour drive home at night.
Here are Saturday’s weigh in results. This is 7 days of fasting!
