I weaned myself off of morning coffee a couple weeks back, so the caffeine withdrawal is minimal. The energy blast from a big glass of fresh OJ….mmmmm… it takes 5 small oranges to make one pint of juice, worked faster then coffee as far as waking up. I went down to the local fabric store and bought a fabric tape measure to take my measurements. Honestly, weight loss is secondary in this liquid fast. I know I will lose a bunch of weight, but the detoxing is what I am after.
Had another green drink this afternoon added more carrots this time. I slept great last night, longer then usual, which is nice. I keep reminding myself to be gentle with myself - this clease is also about nurturing and patience. I made some fresh chicken stock a while back that I thawed out from the freezer and had a nice hot cup of fresh clear broth tonight. I haven’t felt really hungry yet, which is weird considering I have had nothing but liquid for two days now. Not feeling deprived. When I feel a little hungry, I go have some juice, it’s easy so far. It may be easier that I am not working or doing anything strenuous, I’m more then halfway through Whitley Striebers new book, The Key , slight headache, probably because I refuse to get the dreaded bifocals or maybe it's just this book blowing my mind.
