Juice Fast: A Reflection.
Ah, my first juice fast. First. See what I did there? This was my last juice of the fast. On Sunday night. My twelfth day. I went twelve days on a juice fast. At first, I felt like a failure for ending on day 12. I wanted to do 20 or 30 or 40. I had let myself down. But when I really thought about it…how many people can say that have even done a fast for one day, let alone 12...
To break the fast or not to break the fast?
Last night I was determined I would break the fast today. It just felt right. I even had a dream about it last night. But I am scared to start eating food. And I am scared of being a failure. I know in my heart that, no matter when I break this fast, any type of fasting is an accomplishment. Even if I break it today, on Day 13, 12 days of juice detox is a huge accomplishment…and more...
Juice Fast Day 12.
I am honestly considering breaking my fast tomorrow. I am just SO sick of juice. I am sick of everything. I spend hours of my day obsessing over recipes on Pinterest and when I am not doing that, I am watching food shows on Netflix, and when I am not doing that, I am cleaning my juicer/making juice. I am just over it. I do not feel like my body is cleansing anymore. I feel like my body is...

Juice Fast Day 10.
Day 10. Ten days ago, I never would have thought I would make it to this day. This is my juice corner. Today was much better than yesterday. I was able to actually stomach juice, but I had to use way more fruits than vegetables. The only veggies I got in my juice today were romaine and cucumber—probably the most mild veggies out there. I only had three juices though. My breakfast...
17andlivingthedream asked: I want to start the juice fast to lose weight, so i was wondering how many pounds have you lost for being on the fast for a week? thank you xx
Juice Fast Day 9.
Yesterday, day 8, I felt wonderful. So wonderful I forgot to blog. Today has been rough. I made a juice for lunch with dandelion greens and it made my juice taste disgusting. I am afraid I am turned off of juice forever. The thought of juice disgusts me. I came home today and made a cup of vegetable broth instead of juice because I almost gag every time I think about it. Maybe that is...

Juice Fast Day 7.
Day seven. I cannot believe I am on day seven. I can say with one hundred percent certainty that this was way easier than I thought it would be. I was always terrified of a juice fast…terrified of the hunger, terrified of the lack of fiber. But I feel amazing. I have so much energy. I feel thinner, I look thinner. I am barely even thinking about that stupid break up and that stupid. ...
Juice Fast Day 6.
Wow! Day 6. You know what this means…tomorrow is day seven. Today, I felt wonderful. I only drank four juices today and barely felt hungry. My energy level was the best it has been. My brain no longer feels foggy. My sinus pressure is gone. I still have canker sores in my mouth and my tongue is not completely clear. I also noticed post nasal drip starting today, which I have not...
Juice Fast Day 5.
I knew today was not going to be the best. Upon waking, I knew. I woke up with a sore throat and stiff muscles. But I also woke up five pounds lighter than when I started. All day I have been feeling exhausted and sinusy. My tongue still has a whitish hue and I have canker sores all over my mouth. The skin on my face is peeling. Tonight I did some research and read that those are actually all...
Juice Fast Day 4.
Day four. Is this real life? Four days with no food, only juice. Today was rough. I worked my first eight hour shift on a Saturday, which are our busiest days, on my fast. By 4.30 and 5 and a half hours without juice, I was about to pass out. Thankfully I had this waiting for me in the refrigerator. About thirty minutes after I drank my juice, I felt energized again. Before I went on...
Juice Fast Day 3.
I did it. I made it to Day 3. And I am not stopping. In case you were wondering, this is what twenty dollars of cucumbers looks like. I keep waiting to crash, but it never happens. Yesterday I felt so energized all day that when I left work, I felt like going for a run. I didn’t. Let’s not get too crazy. I have been experiencing some mild detox symptoms, but nothing too...
Juice Fast Day 2.
Today I woke up feeling crazy. I probably should have slept longer. My body felt very stiff. That is the only way to describe it. I must have been dehydrated. Yesterday was tough, but I have heard day 2 is always the worst, so I am scared for today. I am already SO sick of juicing. Where is my magical juice faerie to make it for me four to five times a day? I am also already running out of...
Juice Fast Day 1.
Today I have decided to embark on a juice fast. I have not done much preparation, but I suppose I could say I have been preparing for the last two years as a juice fast has always been on my mind. Apple, pear, lemon, ginger, romaine, kale, cucumber, kiwi. I am really not sure how long this fast will last. I am not giving myself a time limit. It might last 3 days or 30 days. All I know is...
When I say let's keep in touch, I really mean I...
You need to come to terms with what you did to me. I hope you think about it sometimes. And I hope it makes your heart ache in a bad way. I hope it makes your stomach churn with unease. I hope it makes your skin crawl and your chest tighten. I hope you remember it all and i hope it eats away at your insides.
