First: Ginger, the cat, seems to be doing a bit better. She's nibbling on all her favorites, and came and sat on the couch with us to watch college football.
This morning I tried to do a lot - get up, do yoga for 30 minutes, prep a sh*tload of juice for the day, shower, and make it to work by 8:30. I was only 15 minutes late, at the end of all that. I like getting up at 6, I just have to get up and not hit snooze, even once.
Note - you'll want to prep your veggies and fruits at night. The fiance has offered to help me do this. Peeling oranges at 7 AM while looking at the clock knowing you're going to be late is NOT relaxing or healing, which I think, are the goals of the mental state of the fast.
It's the end of my first day of juicing at work, which I've found to be quite nice. It's great not to have to figure out whether I'm going to pig out on something bad at lunch or not. No, it's a regemented day - water till 10 AM, sweet juice, then veggie juice at noon. Then tea at 1 or 2, and at 3, I can have leftover juice.
However, the veggie juice I made today... blech. There was too much cabbage in it. Beware!!!!! Keep cabbage to a minimum. I know it's good for me but it really kills the juice with a nasty smell. I'm trying to not go overboard with sugar.
I actually got rid of most of it. I just couldn't drink it. I'm transporting juice to work in Nalgene bottles, with as dark plastic colors as I could find. I think the juice starts to break down with heat and light, so I make it, stick it in the fridge, get ready, and take it to work where I chill it till I want it. This may change as I find better things to do.
There have been edges of headaches all day. And I've been pooping like crazy! Who knew? I'm super hydrated. I put lotion on my hands and it took forever to rub in. I went out and got a skin brush and some exfoliant for the shower.
The organic veggies are very expensive. I'm spending a ton on them, but it's worth it to get the good stuff. It really tastes and smells fresh. My orange, carrot and pear juice this morning was really excellent. I'm just trying to find some veggie combos that I really like.
Off to home, where I'll have some tea and take a walk. Maybe have some broth later.
