Juice Fast - Day 1 .. Saturday, November 24th
I'm starting a juice fast, so I thought this would be a great time to get back into blogging here. I'll also be keeping track on the fasting forum, but I want to have a solid place to come back to later on, to read about my journey,
I just started my juice fast today. I'm shooting for 20 days, but if my body wants it to continue longer, so be it. I've been mentally toying over the idea of a juice fast for quite some time (even before raw), and since today marks my 7th month since switching to a raw foods lifestyle, I figured it would be a great day to start!!
I can't wait to see what wonderful health benefits await me. I would absolutely love to see some improvements with this facial skin condition that I have. It really gets to me My starting weight is 124.6 (up 3 lbs after my raw thanksgiving... perhaps I indulged a bit much in the pies, lol!)
This is my first juice fast. In fact, this morning was my first time ever juicing, lol, so I don't have any favorite recipes yet, but I'll be sure to post when I do. (and since I'm a fasting newbie, lol, I'm really curious what the difference is between a fast and a feast?? anyone know?)
I started with a carrot/apple/spinach juice. Yum!!! I loved it (so did the kids). So good.
I also had a tomato/celery/parsley juice with a little horseradish ... blech, the horseradish upset my stomach. My husband liked it, though.
Right now I'm drinking one that someone posted on the fasting forum... grapefruit/pear/and sweet potato. Pretty good!
Today was a breeze getting through, too, which is wonderful! Totally gave me the confidence I was hoping for. I'm really excited about this fast.
