Good Morning to Everyone.
Yesterday passed rather quickly. I juiced about 12 grapefruits (6 in the morning, 6 in the afternoon) for my drink and was satisfied. Water in between of course. Still struggling pretty hard in the late afternoon. I start telling myself that I've done enough, that I can stop the fast with a healthy option, that this is too hard for a busy woman, excuse, excuse, etc. By the time 6 or 7 rolls around I'm so tired of making excuses that I stop. Then another day is through. In the morning I feel so empowered. Right now I start thinking that 40 days would even be attainable. But I know myself enough to see that this empowerment is short lived!
Just a note or two about myself. I am a 32 year old vegetarian. I was raised vegetarian and have never added any meat to my diet. It is assumed that vegetarians must be so healthy, so vibrant, so in love with salad. That is not always true. I have fell into the trap of adding eggs, butter, and cheese to my diet. Then it was an occasional soda or coffee. Over time dairy products and caffeine became everyday foods. While on vacation this spring I realized that I was compromising my health for the short lived sense of taste. I decided to make drastic changes when I got home. First thing I did was quit caffeine. Suffered through two days of withdraw and came out the other side free of addiction. At the same time I stopped buying dairy at the store. Started cooking the meals I know will supply my family with real nutrients. Now the fast. It makes logical progression to me and I know there is a reward for doing what is right even when it isn't always fun.
The curezone is such an inspiration to me. Thank you everyone who contributes and makes this a great place to learn, share, and be inspired! Happy Fasting Fellow Travellers...
