WOW! Is it really already day 5 of juicing? Did I really make it through this far? It may not seem like that long when your only doing one or 2 juices a day, but if your like me, easily tempted by food, then you know that is something to be proud of. Today was the 2nd day of juicing 2 times again. The more I juice and drink the same few juices, I’m really coming to like them. I also seem to be having more energy. Temptation with cheese and other foods is hard. I have 2 small children and a husband who are not on this “diet” with me and whom I still have to cook for and feed. Today I also made chicken alfredo with french bread and cupcakes for a friend of ours and her family. She has been through a lot in the last few months with having premature babies, surgeries and more than her share of health problems. She finally welcomed home her baby son (her baby daughter has been home 2 weeks) and I wanted to prepare a meal for them to help take one thing off their plate. I did the same when they took home their daughter. Their family is now complete. 🙂
The temptation to eat the food I made them is so hard. I am still eating regular food but I am trying to cut out as much as I can so that I can make a smooth transition into the full juicing period. This weekend is fathers day and I would like to take my husband to dinner and make him a dessert, but I am not so sure how I will do with the temptation. 😦 We will see….only time will tell.
I have not exercised thus far because I am scared to get weak and faint. Not sure why I am so worried about it right now since I am not totally on juicing day in and day out. lol
Juices of the day:
Sunrise: I am really getting to like this one
Un-Beet-able: YUCK! This one was hard to get down. It is going to take some getting used to.
I stayed hungry today and was starting to get moody like I usually do when I am hungry. I ended up eating some honeydew and some almonds and that really helped my hunger. I hate feeling hungry. Getting really really nervous of going full juice.
That’s all for now!
