I got to sleep in this morning! When you wake up a 3:45 AM at least three days a week, as many as four or five, sleeping in is the biggest treat. I slept from 9:30 last night to 8:30 morning, waking only once to pee. It was very deep sleep, but I did dream. I recollect dreaming about eating food and not enjoying it - mashed potatoes! I also dreamed of being at my childhood home. I often dream of that, not sure of the signifigance.
This AM I had a lovely, light juice. It was canteloupe, nectarine, and a little passion fruit. Oh my, it tasted good. It was so refreshing.
I am off for the morning, and work tonight, 3 - 12:30AM. So I am taking it easy. I plan on going to the community pool in my nieghborhood with my husband and kids and baking in the sun for an hour or so. Then I'll come home and take a shower using all my lovely Lush products. If you don't know about lush, they are a great company with many vegan, natural products. I have this vegan coconut soap that is to die for. It feels so good after being in the sun. Then I'll make a hearty juice, since it will be my last juice for the day - only two juices today, due to my schedule. I think I will do a repeat of yesterday's veggie juice, which was very filling. I thought about making a fruit juice to take to work with me, but I prefer to drink the juice directly after it is made so as to not lose any nutrients.
I feel pretty good today. I am having a little body anxiety, but that isn't unusual. I have very poor body image. I am working on it, or trying to. I just want to wake up thin, you know? I know that isn't going to happen, but it still is discouraging. I think not weighing myself is the only way I am keeping this fast going. If I saw initial weight loss then a slow and woke up feeling bad about myself like this, there is no way I could keep going. I am not really struggling at all right now, though.
I still have very little hunger. I have decent energy. My skin looked clearer this morning. I think it is getting better every day. I feel very happy. I am in a better mood this Saturday than I have been in any of the past Saturday nights I have had to close at work. I attribute that to the juice.
I am not doing a SWF or anything today. I will in the AM on sunday if nothing happens without it. I think I have decided every other day will be enough for that, for me. If I have a crisis or something, maybe I'll do it more often, but as of now, I think I'm good.
Ah - off to clean the juicer then bake in the hot sun!
