sleep well, tomorrow is a BRAND NEW DAY
today is day 5 for me, and I just spend two full hours juicing!!
I juiced 2 kilo grapes, which made about 1,5 liter grapejuice, and Oh my, that tastes so gooood! I thought because of the many seeds in the grapes, it would not taste that good, but I was wrong! It was really yummie, and I had my mom taste and she tasted a hint of banana, although it was pure grapejuice!
After that, I juiced some more apples and pears, which made about 1,5 liter of juice, so yeah, it's amazing how much more food you consume when you juice! But I suppose that's a good thing, because I kind of got fed up with some types of fruit and veggies, I also haven't received Alissa's book yet, so I didn't have enough inspiration, so juicing was actually a good way to bring some variety in my eating habits...
well, I'm off, gotta clean the juicer, and then I'm gonna clean the house a bit...
talk to you later, my juice buddies
Great job Jay! You are really doing well. How do you feel now on day 5 as opposed to day 1?
thank you so much!
I do feel better if I compare today to day 1. Although I still need a lot of sleep, I have more energy and generally feel better with myself. I'm proud of myself that I got to day 5 and that I can continue with juicefasting. And I'm just LOVING the juice I'm making, lol! It's so sweet and rich, a juicy kinda smoothie, de-licious!
My skin hasn't cleared up yet sadely... but I know I have lots to toxics in my body, so the sooner they are out of my body, the better! Although that a waterfast might speed up that process, but I don't think I'll be able to do a waterfast for a long time, I'll probably get so weak, not so with juicefasting.
What's up with the rest of my juice buddies?
it's awfully quiet here...
Are you still OJ fasting RawJoJo?
Tamara, how are you doing? Did you start with juicefasting today or decided you are good to go with just the raw food?
Helen from Tennesee, I read somewhere you are starting a juicefast tomorrow, together with Edda I think it was... come on and join us, I'll be happy to read someone else's successtories, yay!
See you guys tomorrow
Hey there Joke!
I'm doing okay. I have decided after conferring w/ Alissa that I am going to stay raw for a bit longer & juice sometime in the future. However, I may try to incorporate one or two juice meals a day. Tonight, I will be having fresh oj as I am craving it like crazy! But either way, I will always be here for you. I think you are doing great & I do look forward to joining you one day!
Happy Fasting ~
I have fresh juice 2-3 times a day most days. I just love it! I am going to do a juice fast soon....as soon as my two buddies are ready to start.
Please keep me posted as to when you & your friends commit to the juice fast. Who knows, maybe by then I'll be ready also?!
Okay Tamara (VWB), that's cool! I don't know if I'll still be juicing when you join, but no matter what, I'll be cheering you on and supporting
Thanks for being here to cheer me on as well :)
Well day 6 already, pfhew!
it's already 3:40 pm here (afternoon) and I juiced so many oranges today! It made 1,5 liter (51 oz) of OJ! Very very tasty! I drank already 2/3 of it, afterwards I'll drink the rest of the juice from yesterday, so I can make fresh juice tomorrow.
Oh yeah, Tamara, you wanted to know how much weight you can lose with juicefasting, right?
well, since I started, 6 days ago, I already lost 1,3 kilos (2.86 pounds), not that much, but it's coming off, so I'm glad :) It always takes a long time for me to lose weight, so this is in my case, I don't know how it will go with you...
You are doing awesome! Almost 3 pounds in 6 days is very impressive to me. It seems to take me forever to lose weight, although I can put it back on overnight
These last two days have been hideous for me... only about 50% raw ...ergh! BUT >>>> I'm back on track. Hopefully I have learned my lesson?! You wouldn't believe how naucious I was again last night. yuk. TODAY I START WITH A CLEAN SLATE!
almost 3 pounds is okay I guess, i wish it would all just melt off, but that's never gonna happen I'm afraid... well, raw IS a challenge, if the weight would just melt off, it wouldn't be a challenge now would it? ;)
Besides, it's not just the weight, I'm feeling good too, and that's also important...
Dust yourself and try again, remember? :) Everybody has fall backs, there's not so much special about 'em, it's the people who stand up after they fell, dust off and try again, THOSE people are special, and you are special, and you are worth it, you can do this, yay! :)
I am still here! I was away for most of the day yesterday so my posts have been lacking a bit. I'm back today however! Well, I am still O.J. Fasting and I am starting to feel much better! This is day 4 for me and although the first 2 days ewre rough I am finally seeing the light. I have been in a much better mood and my skin has taken a sight turn for teh better! FINALLY! Also, I wanted to add that I am dealing with my menstral cycle this week also and surprisingly my craving haven't been all that bad. The second night I snuck and had a couple of my hubbys chips because I needed salty and crunchy but them I was so disappointed and even crappier feeling that I learned it wasn't worth it. Hopefully I can go for the next 10 days without anymore slip-ups! The good news it that since monday I have lost 4.8 pounds. I am striving for a clean body but the weight loss is an added bonus. Hopefully it will keep falling off. I will check back in a few and see how you are today! Have a good one!
