I fully expected today to be a horrible, awful, no-good day. Everything I read online said that the second day was bad. I expected headaches and flu like symptoms. Honestly, I thought I was going to not make it through today because if it got worse than yesterday, then there was no way I could handle it.
After I wrote this post I curled into bed to watch Dance Moms (I know, I know, it’s horrible, but it’s my bad TV thing). I was feeling crappy, and getting a headache, and not just from the drama queens bickering on the show. During a commercial break I grabbed the other half of my gazpacho juice from the fridge. I took one drink and almost gagged. It was that bad. It wasn’t great when it was fresh, but I couldn’t stand it.
I was hungry and crabby and couldn’t imagine going through with this for ten days with juice I couldn’t stomach.
This morning I ran out of time to make a fresh juice so instead had my allotted once a day commercial juice, Odwalla Super B. That I think turned out to be a good thing. I felt better.
When lunch juice time rolled around, I decided to not follow the juice recipes but just to think about what would taste okayish to me. I figured out that the cucumber and celery in the juice from the night before were just not doing it for me. When juicing, it’s good to try to have way more vegetables than fruits. I decided to add one fruit to my juices each to make it tolerable.
My lunch juice:
It was totally yum! Lemon is going to be my friend because it over powers everything.
I’m going to continue juicing like this, what sounds good to me. My dinner juice wasn’t as good as the lunch juice, but was tolerable.
I had tons of energy today, and am feeling great!
I did have some moments of total hunger, but they passed quickly, and I feel like I can keep going for the ten days.
