Day 4 of Juice Fast
Less juice, more effort and pleasing the better half. Oh, and almost lucid too!!

I've read that day 4 or 5 is supposed to be one of the toughest to get through in the initial part of the fast. That certainly wasn't the case for me. The truth is it was one of the easiest days so far!!! I literally wasn't hungry the entire day. I woke up and made my standard (I added in some ginger which was really good!!) of about 24 oz. I couldn't even finish the half I had poured for my breakfast.
By lunch-time I realized I wasn't the slightest bit hungry and decided not to have the juice. When my wife came to pick me up at 3:45 I was equally un-hungry. When I got into the car I got barraged. (Quick side-note..my wife is teaching a 5th/6th grade combo class this year for the first time and really doesn't like it. She is used to 1st grade) She had a bad day and was seriously complaining about her diet. All she could talk about on the way home (45 min) was how hungry she was and how she just wanted some good food and wine. I tried to comfort her and tell her how good she was doing, and how it was hard to change habits, and...you get the idea. She would have none of it. When we got home I felt I wanted to go to the gym and eventually convinced her to come with me. Surprisingly she did (she was dead set against it on the way home). We worked out for a good hour (all the while I was watching FoodTV which is one of my favorite channels) and I still wasn't the slightest bit hungry. She, however, was famished. She demanded I take her to Pizza Hut and to get her wine and chocolate (which of course I did without any argument). She got a personal pan pizza and I got her a nice bottle of Australian Shiraz and some dark chocolate. She ate very modestly and had only 1 glass of wine. She felt better--and I felt better
When we got home I opened the thermos with the juice I had made earlier. I still wasn't hungry but I was thirsty. I had a glass of water first and then drank about half the juice left. After that I was completely full. I became tired within an hour and went to bed... Again my dreams were filled with me eating. This time I found it extremely humorous (and apparently it happens when people fast) as it made me realize I was dreaming almost instantly. I just started to take control of the dream when I woke up. Damn!! Maybe tonight.
