Well, it’s 7:30am on day 7 but I don’t want to skip any days in my juice fast journal, so here goes…
Yesterday (Saturday) started off fantastically – I had a bit of a sleep in, did my oil pulling, had my lemon water, and created a new Pineapple-Grapefruit juice recipe. I had lots of energy and got a lot done around the house… as much as I should have gone for a run!
Eeek! I was in a bit of a funk today, which was a little extra depressing given the last four days have been so wonderful. However, it’s reassuring to know that the juice fast wasn’t giving me any crazy kind of superpowers that resulted in all that energy I had : )
Well, it’s official… I made it through day 4! My longest juice fast ever. Actually, I think I achieved that last night but tonight it feels more definite. So much happened today I’m not sure where to start, so perhaps in typical journal style, I’ll start at the beginning…
Well… you really don’t want a photo of my experience today. Let’s just say that I hit the ‘cleanse’ part of this little juice fast and it wasn’t (isn’t) pretty; however healthy it may be. The funny thing is that it caught me totally by surprise. Colon cleanses come with instructions to ‘stay at home on day 4’ but the juice fast didn’t come with such instruction. I hadn’t had so much success with previous juice fasts as to experience this before but guess I should be happy I’m getting it (quite literally) “out of the way” early on : S
I have always hated tomato juice, despite being a bartender for more years and making more bloody mary’s than I care to remember… all with good reviews. Well, always, until March this year when my boyfriend made me a bloody mary on our trip to Puerto Rico. I fell in love!
Tyler Tolman’s online juice fast started on August 1 and I’m totally hooked! As mentioned in my c.a.s.s. juice post last week, I had a day of juice on the official first day but took Friday through Sunday off to go to Osheaga music festival in Montreal… and while I missed my juice, it was totally worth it! A fab three days with great music, great company, and luckily for me, great gluten-free vegan Thai food : )
I have been so excited… three weeks after hiding my first batch of kombucha in a dark cupboard I can finally unveil it! In addition to excited, I was very. very nervous. What if I messed up the preparation? What if I didn’t steep the tea for long enough? What if it tasted awful? What if it got contaminated? What if it fell off the shelf… all by itself?!?
