Did I say I was going for 2 days or 21 days? I think I said “2!” Well, that about wraps up my juice feast – haha…just kidding…I think. I’m almost done with day 3 and here are my thoughts:
I’m not sold on the MSM supplement. I’ve been using it for well over a month and I’ve not noticed any improvement in my skin. Now, whether it’s helping my joints and such, I’m not sure. I’ll stick with it a little longer before giving it the boot.
I’m tired of juicing. I love the juice combinations I’m making (especially when I add cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne – delicious!) and I’m not really hungry. But, I feel an emptiness in me. A hollow feeling. And, frankly, I’m really really tired of making the juices already. Keep in mind I’m making them for two people and that’s a lot of extra work. It would definitely be easier if I were only making it for one person. Even still, the thought of focusing my culinary skills on juices only for the next 21-days is not as appealing as I thought previously. I love food, especially healthy food. I really miss it and have to ask myself every couple of hours…why am I doing this? Have I gone long enough?
I’m quite tired. I had some energy this morning, but I’m back to being tired, and somewhat weak. I’m losing weight (probably too much) and, yes, I’m drinking tons of juice. This afternoon I was 122, probably less as of this blog post. The headaches my boyfriend and I suffered yesterday are gone. My mom is still experiencing a bad one. Both my boyfriend and mom have lost more than a few pounds each since we started.
Apart from feeling tired and weak, and being sick of making the juices, I feel pretty great. I feel a cleansing taking place and that is cool. It’s enough to make me keep going…at least for now.
