I’m journaling my ten day juice fast.
I’ll start with last night. Night time when laying in bed before sleep seems to be the toughest time for me. I was totally hungry and fell asleep thinking about what my first post fast bite will be (avocado for the win).
I woke up feeling pretty great. I again decided to grab my allotted once daily bottled juice for my morning juice. I’m not a morning person. I felt clear and ready to focus. I don’t even know how the idea popped in my head, but I thought about how I’ve always wanted to write a letter to the OB that cared for me while I was pregnant with Cora. And I did it!
It was definitely healing and something I don’t think I would have done had I not been fasting.
After I wrote the letter and opened emails and blah, blah, blah, I decided to make my first juice of the day.
I was so looking forward to it because I was putting a whole pint of blackberries and half a bag of grapes in it, and then a bunch of veggies.
Then this happened.
I knocked over the juice, and it went all over the corner of my kitchen. I couldn’t resist snapping a quick photo of the juice fiasco before I got to work cleaning it up. I was terrified that the juice would stain the cupboards or wall, but it didn’t.
I was so sad I wasted so much good juice and so many fresh veggies. Realistically, it was probably my most expensive juice yet. After I cleaned up, I made the juicers version of comfort food a fruity mix and moved on.
This afternoon I went to the store to stock up on supplies and spent another $12. I’ve spent about $50 so far, but totally have a ton of fruits and veggies so I think this fast is going to end up costing me less than $10 a day.
