Jenifae's Raw Journey
Completed a 10 Day Juice Fast!
I completed my 1st Juice Fast of 10 days!
I was leary that I could complete this but, with a support group and forum it really helped. In fact it made all the difference in the world for me.
So, throughout the journey it went from struggle to okay to at the end feeling really good and strong. I did 3 green juices with 2 fruit juices in between a day. The Green juice helped me to feel satiated and the fruit juices helped to not feel hungry, or so it seemed. I had lots of on and off detox symptoms but, pushed through it. Everyday I was more empowered on my ability to complete it. Even though I had alot of fatique, tiredness, and general weakness. By the 7th day my energy came back and felt great!
I had cravings for guacamole and mocha's alot along with other things but, realized this all mostly mental. Because, I truely was not hungry. My mind was so used to acting out with food. So, interesting.
I learned so much about myself during the fast as well. I saw attitudes and behaviors in myself that are not who I want to be. So, I really learned about Who I Am, Who I Want to Be, and how I want to get there.
My Goal is to continue to eat healthy and High Raw!
My Anxiety has disappeared and I was able to drive all the way to my Granddaughter's Birthday Party which is a 2-3 hour drive away, on my own. Wow! I haven't been able to do that in a few years now. So, that in itself makes me want to contine a healthy diet of mostly Fresh, Ripe, Organic, Fruits and Vegetables!
However, I did treat myself to a Lovely Mexican Meal of Grilled Veggies, Beans, and Guacomole and Salsa...yes, and some chips. A very small sliver of Hubby's apple pie. I enjoyed it and ate it with appreciation. :) If I"m going to eat cooked I am not beating myself up. The beating myself up could cause a continueation of what I don't want.
So, tomorrow is a Green Juice and Fruit Day! :)
