Halloween brings up some spooky ideas......

So I'm still running like a frigging faucet.
My nose hasn't let up. I feel like I've sneezed out like a bucket of snot (sorry, I know that image is gross).
Yesterday was halloween. I was going to go out and see Saw III (if anyone has seen it...was it any good??) but the wife pooped out on me. So we just stayed home and watched the Omen (the original) on AMC and handed out candy to the trick-or-treaters. Other than that nothing very important happened on day 18.
I am starting to feel the boredom that others have written about. It's not that I don't love my juices (I do). It's just that I really feel like I want to eat. I know it's completely psychological because I'm still not hungry. In fact, I've actually considered just pushing all the way into a water fast for a day or two due to this lack of hunger (I mean what better time to try it than when you aren't hungry). I'm just afraid that if I do I will really hit a wall then go back to food immediately.
The other thing I've been thinking about in the last few days is how I'm going to plan my regular diet (not to lose weight but what I'll be eating for life!!--hopefully) after the fast is over. I'm in a dilema because although I'm sure a vegetarian (even vegan) diet would be great for me I know that wouldn't work in the long run. I love all foods and that includes beef, poultry and fish as well. I've been thinking maybe I could replace my breakfast and lunch with juice permanently and then have a reasonable dinner (kind of like a slimfast diet--without the slimfast). Any ideas out there???
PS Oh yeah, I actually gained 2 lbs?? I'm up to 211 (could that be muscle gain??--I have been hitting the treadmill just about every night)
