Feeling Good and very optomistic!

My Monday started pretty well. Woke up and prepared one liter of juice which consisted of two pineapple spears, two granny smith apples, four carrots, handful of cauliflower and broccoli, one large cucumber and five strawberries. I planned on drinking about 8-16oz. of juice four times a day and follow each “meal” with about 16 oz. of water. It was surprisingly filling. I must admit that a couple of hours later I would feel a bit hungry, but no serious hunger pangs. I would sip on green tea with agave nectar to warm up my system. I used the warm tea to give my stomach something warm; trying to fool it into thinking I was actually eating something. I don’t know if that makes any sense or not, but it seemed to work.
I told my coworkers what I was doing and got mixed reviews. Half wondered why on Earth would I do something like that, while the other half applauded me and were curious as to the end result. I believe in having some help in being held accountable. I feel that if I tell them what I plan on doing and give them some insight as to my plan of attack, then it gives me extra incentive to stick to my fast. I don’t want to look like I was saying that I’m going on a fast to look cool and then have a Big Mac for lunch. The support from the curious few also feels good and helps me to surge forward.
I got home and had about 16oz. of juice left and placed it in the fridge for a while. I started feeling hungry on the way home and even called ahead to my girlfriend to go ahead and eat before I got home. I was feeling weak and thought that the sight of her eating might be too much. When I got home I felt weak but overall was doing ok. I ended up taking an hour nap, which doesn’t happen too often for fear of not being able to sleep throughout the night. I woke up really drained and hopped into the shower and enjoyed some nice green tea with agave nectar afterwards. Started feeling hungry around 9 o’clock and downed the remainder of my juice.
It’s odd but I’m turning in early tonight and will post tomorrow.
