Day 16 of the Juice Fast
I get sick and tempted

I guess the real purgeing has begun.
I woke up on the 16th day of the juice fast feeling terrible. This is really the first time during the fast that I've had really noticably persistant negative symptoms. I felt like I had a cold (which considering I was in the presence of literally thousands of people at Vegoose and hundreds of people at 54' may totally be posssible). Throughout the day I was stuffed up and blowing my nose (I'm blowing my nose as I type this on the morning of the 17th day too).
I also had my first pangs of hunger. They were short though and I ignored them (and they went away after about 15 minutes). I have the feeling that I've been going up and up on the roller-coaster for the last 15 days and now I'm headed down that long drop. I'm bracing myself for it and staying positive.
I was slightly more thirsty on the 16th day and had a fair bit of water along with some senna tea. Other than that I stayed on the couch (although I did go out for a quick morning workout--which may not have been good for me). My wife wasn't helping very much as she cooked a delicious gourmet dinner for herself (Steak, Mussels, Crab Cake, Seared Scallops, Potatoe and Asparagus) and offered half of it to break the fast with it. I don't want to even think about it. Just typing about it brings up the olfactory memories....
Enough of that. I've got to get to work.
