- Day 3 of 103 y
mmm everything went great yesterday - i was a bit hungry in the evening but that went away after a few lemonades. Drinking heaps of water and slept really well. Dropped the kids off to school and then went back to bed and didnt want to get out. Feeling really good but my old arch nemesis is here FRIDAY!! I love fridays. I dont think i am going to make it thru the weekend. Will see if i crack later today. visit the page

- Day 2 of 10 day master cleanse3 y
Things went pretty smoothly again yesterday, slept well which i love about fasting - very vivid dreams. I can already feel my emotions calming down. Fasting gives me time to react to things more naturally- toxins chemicals process foods and alcohol all make my nervous system very sketchy. Just wish i could maintain more of a balance in my life. Not even just about weight but about peace, and calmness and being grounded to whats real and ignoring all the rest of the bs. Well i guess life wouldnt be interesting if i had it together all of the time.
Its all about Checks and balances - and re ... read more

- Day 1 of 10 day master cleanse3 y
The master cleanse is my least favourite thing to do but i need a change and a challenge. Day 1 is always very easy for me and luckily i slept really well last nigth. i am going to try to stick strictly to mc lemonade but if i get to the point where i want to quit i will add a juice in here and there. looking forward to feeling better, less bloated and calm. life is pretty uncertain at the moment and i need to have the peace that fasting gives to assess everything. i am not weighing myself but yes i want to lose a few extra pounds. would like to commit to a longer fast but just not in that ... read more

- post fast day 13 y
i thought i would blog for the first week. today i broke my fast with banana, grapes and some tomatoes (they just looked so good in central market!). i am craving something hot because it is so cold here - which is very unusual. so tomorrow i am going to make a veggie broth. also looking forward to some steamed cauliflower- very strange the things you can feel like after not eating for 30 days! visit the page
- breaking the fast
- Day 303 y
Yeah i am so glad i have made it. today my weight is at 139pd, but yesterday it was at 138 so i am taking the 138 and saying i lost 22pd in 30days!! i think the reason its up a little today is oxypowder. i feel like when i take it at night it holds a lot of fluid in my body - i can feel it. then when the bm’s come it realeases it. so my guess is tomorrow my weight will be down again. but needless to say it has been very strange. i lost 16pd in the first two weeks and only 6 in the second half. however most of my size change came in the last half - even in the last week my jeans fit better. ... read more

- Day 293 y
Last night i ran 4 miles straight and felt really good, first time for a while i have had energy and not feel exhausted from exercising. maybe i just needed to rest in between running..mmm..makes sense! slept amazing again - i love that on fasts. i am sick of juice but making myself have one during the day and if hungry at night another one. oxypowder has been working a treat - i will be glad when i am eating solid food and dont have to take anything. all in all a good second last day! visit the page
- another good day
- Day 27 & 283 y
Today is a good day - only two more days to do! my weight is 139pd, which i am a bit disappointed about. that means in two weeks of fasting i have only lost 5 pds off the scales. although i know i have lost more in inches because i am down probably two sizes since then. and it’s still a weight loss of 21pd - so far. i feel really good in that i am sleeping well, wake up feeling rested and i am more focused. i am not hungry at all i am down to mostly just one large juice during the day and sipping on hot water at night. i have mixed emotions about finishing. i will be glad to be done but it ... read more
- nearly there
- day 25 & 263 y
well yesterday was another low energy day - i ran again only 3 miles and as soon as i finished i went dizzy and felt sick - seriously i nearly threw up. i guess i am not getting enough calories for energy or maybe i am just spending a lot on cleansing. whatever it is its not good so today i am having a rest day, tomorrow i will walk or run depending on how i feel. i am in my jeans, comfortably which is good. so the next few days is extra! i still feel like i have a lot to go but happy to work on it. i am looking forward to some food - today i am hungry and ready for the 30 day mark to come ... read more
- not feeling so great!
- Day 243 y
Another good day. Although i ran this morning and i had very very little energy. i only managed 3 miles, my legs killed me, it was really very hard. i was suprised, it could be my body clock, i am not much of a morning person and usually run at night - or it could just be a low day on the fast???? i will have to start oxypoweder again tonight...i dont hate it but i sure dont love it! i had a dream last nite that i ate - gosh that would be awful getting this far and quitting...no way that is happening. i am looking forward to getting thru this weekend and then seeing how i am feeling and ho ... read more

- Day 233 y
Today i feel even better than yesterday! Amazing. Finally my weight decreased. I could just tell this morning when i woke up i felt much smaller even then yesterday. so i tried on some jeans that even two days ago didnt fit and yep they fit! so i am back to what i call my safe weight. This is where i feel like i look ok not great but not bad i can also maintain this weight by eating and exercising how i want. So that is all good. I am 140pd. I would love to get into the low 30’s if i can but no pressure. The one thing that is not good is my body shape has changed a little due to not exerci ... read more

- Day 223 y
Feel great, slept like a baby, have loads of energy, clear mind, just feel really good. Yesterday i had one juice in the middle of the day and it was all i needed - that and water. I ran 4 miles last night and it just felt soooo good. Today or rather tonight i am volunteering for a homeless organisation i am really hoping that this will work out and be a regular weekly activity. My skin feels good its still a little blotchy, i’m not sure how long that would take to juice to fix up completely but my bags under my eyes are gone. Three weeks in is for me the best time on a fast - i always fee ... read more
- good times!
- Day 213 y
i am glad today is here - i am ready to finish the last week of fasting and move onto regular life. i have loved doing this fast and right now i sit here feeling really good. i love the feeling you get of not being bloated, i love not being hungry and not having to worry about how much food i am consuming and i love how i sleep. and yes i love the weight loss. but i guess most of all i love that i am doing this for me, for my health not for anyone else it is purely for me! and it just feels so good to be treating myself so well. i have to apply this post fast to my eating habits which i am ... read more
- yeah another milestone
- Day 17-193 y
today i am a little low my weight is 143.5pd which hardly seems possible but in 5 days of juicing and heavy exercise i have actually managed to put on half a pound. it doesnt worry me in that it wont effect the fast...i have comitted to 30 days and i will complete it..but it is disappointing. i was going so strong at the start, i expected it too slow down but not to stop all together. anyway good thing is i ran my 4 miles withuot stoping and in a decent time, yesterday i went to the gym and did a really good workout, today i am debating a rest day or a nice walk later on...no pressure. its ... read more
- mmm frustrating
- Day 163 y
yesterday i was really hungry - i just didnt have enough juice so today i am going to try to increase. i also had low energy and didnt sleep very well. all associated with too low a calorie intake i think. i managed a walk but really wasnt up to gym which is what i was planning. today is running day but i am not going to push it like i have other days...i just havent got the energy..and i think it is important to listen to your body. i love that each day i wake up i am day further away from my starting point and one day closer to my end! i am so glad i am doing this. i think it will become ... read more
- Day 14& 153 y
i am so glad i am half way - it feels really good. i am at 143 pd which is 17 pound in 15day, i am happy about that being gone..this is the most i have lost in this amount of time on any fast...not sure why when i’m not doing anything different... i think the more you have to lose the quicker it comes off and then when you have less it slows down??? now just another 10 to go! yesterday i ran 4 miles, three continuous a break and then the final one. i am aiming to get the whole 4 in one hit by end of this week. that will feel good. i am wearing pants today that fit again yeah!!! still a lon ... read more

- Day 12 & Day 133 y
The weekend has passed without much to say..i am bored of juicing but love the feeling it gives me. i feel light full of energy, aware, calm and more myself. i ran yesterday i made it the whole four miles but stopped in between for a break. today i ran outside it was such a lovely day, another four miles. i am so glad i am back to the exercise and looking forward to a run tomorrow and then back in the gym. i am down to 144pd which is 16pd in 13 days. i am happy about the weight loss and more clothes are fitting. i still have a long way to go but definately feels good to be doing something ... read more

- Day 113 y
Yesterday was such a great day but today i am a little low. i am missing food, not so much hungry, just missing it. i will increase juices to overcome. its also friday and as i have said numerous times i find weekends difficult. but its only 4 weekends that i refrain from our usual festivites so i have to remember that. that and how good i will feel on monday! i have slight detox today, pain in neck and shoulders. my tongue is whiter than normal too, i took oxypowder last night which has resulted in quite a few bm;s os maybe i am just moving some stuff out - which is always good. i am crav ... read more
- Bit of a low day but i will pull thru!
- Day 103 y
Feeling good today - i feel lighter and i am wearing a pair of pants that even three days ago didnt fit me. i am off to the gym for a workout that is going to kill me but necessary. i am at 146pd which is 14pd down from when i started. i dont like being this weight so looking forward to moving on and seeing the pounds go. It is really exciting being able to fit into more things in my cupboard rather than the opposite of more and more things not fitting me. i still have a long way to go but i am making it happen. sleeping well , not hungry at all, i do miss food and eating but im ok with it ... read more
- Yeah one third of the way thru!
- Day 8 and 93 y
Going strong, ran last night for the first time in long time. Ran 3 miles, not continuosly and then walked/ran another mile. Some weights, push ups and sit ups. i really love the feeling after you have finished exercising - why did i give it up! silly!
i feel like last week my main aim was just to get thru. (check) this week is to start exercise routine (check). next week is to incorporate some veggie juice - urghh not looking forward to that.
day 10 tomorrow and 1/3 way thru. weight loss is slow but i can feel it moving a little. my fat jeans are still tight but not as tight as last wee ... read more

- Day 6 & 73 y
yesterday i woke up feeling great, i kept waking up during the night but instead of tossing and turning i could go back to sleep easily. i went for a long walk which was really good. one thing that is not so great is i am in a bad mood. not when i am by myself but around my family. to be honest it is hard, they are all doing exactly what they normally do, which is what i expected, but i gotta say it is hard being around. i feel like escaping from normal activities and protecting myself. i would love to go on a month retreat to fast where everyone is doing the same thing. one day i will be ... read more

yahoo made it thru a friday night, woke up this morning feeling really good. its saturday nite and i have just had my apple juice dinner and about to crawl under the blankets and watch a movie, sipping herbal tea and hot water...oh my gosh it is so cold here the artic winter front has hit with a vengence. glad i got thru this weekend and looking forward to a week of fasting. the weekends are the hardest for me. i am a bit upset at myself i got on the scales..so silly after i posted how freeing it was not to be weighing myself. anyway i was 152 yesterday, i am not going to get on them again ... read more

today i woke up feeling much better, my sleep was not so disrupted. i found it hard to get out of bed and would have preferred to stay curled up with a good book. oh well!! i am feeling a little low today but i am sure this will pass. yesterday was mostly mc lemonade, water, orange and apple juice for dinner, and herbal tea at night. i am not hungry and definately feel lighter. looking forward to moving on and getting to a good point. this is a hard thing to do and it takes a lot of will power but the sense of accomplishment is amazing. i have to remember that when i am questioning what i ... read more

oh i hate that...i had this long post typed out and lost it! silly me. anyway yesterday went fine, i had water all day, apple juice for dinner and herbal tea to sip on during the evening. today i am feeling slight effects of detox, a headache just started and pain in my neck but nothing too bad. my tongue was coated this morning and my breath absolutely stinks right now. i feel like sitting in a hot bath, then watching a movie jumping in bed reading a book and going to sleep. instead i will be cooking dinner for 4, going to parent teacher conferences, picking up from soccer practice and do ... read more

Ok the results of eating, drinking and not exercising for the last 3 months have been, as you can imagine, horrible. Not only am I the biggest i have been since my intial weight loss efforts, i feel awful. So i am starting a 30 day juice fast today and i have got to say i am really looking forward to it. I dont know what my weight is i think if i found out i would feel really bad and beat myself up. I am guessing it is around 165 pd. so i have about 30 pounds to lose. But more importantly i have to get it together. I am simply eating way too much and not exercising at all. I just havent ma ... read more

- Post Fast Day 1 & 24 y
Yesterday i decided it was time to stop. my first day off i had a juice in the morning, fruit for lunch (bananas, watermelon and strawberries) and then carrots and tomatoes for dinner. i ran 4 miles. we went out to a comedy club and i had a few beers which wasnt part of the plan but i was ok with it. i had herbal tea when i got home. today has been juice and fruit again with some raw nuts and dried prunes. tonight i will have salad all raw no dressing. i will go on the elyptical for 40 mins and do leg weights. my plan is to either juice or raw mon-thurs and frid-sun mostly raw with some gr ... read more

Yahoo i made it! My weight is 137pd. so its a 17pd weight loss in 30 days. i expected more. i had 24pd to lose when i started so i still have a ways to go. Im not sure what to do. i am still feeling a little hungry nothing that i cant deal with but it is not pleasant. i really wanted to get to at least 135 before i finished and 130 is my goal. The weight loss has being slow and im wondering if i could still lose the same amount by going raw for a few weeks. i suppose the main problem is that despite the weight loss i still have sooo much to lose - its all fat. i have been this weight befor ... read more

Today was another good day. i ran 4 miles tonight so i was really happy with that. also did some weights for 30 mins. mixed emotions about tomorrow - part of me thinks its time to be done another feels like i have more to go. combination of oxypowder and smooth move is really working for bm’s. still nothing visit the page
- a good day
- Day 284 y
Another good day. Definately lighter, clothes fit me that didnt fit last weekend. i didnt exercise today but had a nice slow walk on the beach with the dogs. i noticed the last two days i have been hungry which i normally dont feel on juice fast. some say this means it is time to stop fasting. i have also heard you should fast until you are clean and have no extra weight left. i no longer have a white coated tongue in the morning and i have had regular bms all fast with nothing unusual coming out. maybe i am clean inside or maybe i need to go further. i have not reached my goal weight loss ... read more

- Day 274 y
Today was a good day. i feel lighter. i ran today outside i am still really slow but i ran 4.8 miles. i need to put miles on my legs again - i use to be able to run 6 miles pretty easily. my knee felt good too. i have more energy on the juice and i noticed that my muscles arent as sore a what they were on the master cleanse.
i still miss being part of our weekend routine but i feel so much better for doing this that its no big deal. i love the holiday away from food. looking forward to getting to 30 days. visit the page
- A good day!

i cannot tell you how much better i feel. having juice has just changed everything, i am not hungry and last night i had the best sleep. i have more energy and just feel really good. i am so glad i didnt try to continue with the mc and switched back to juice. i feel like now i could go longer than 30 days. which i may need to do because still no change in my weight. i havent got back on scales but i can just tell. again i will go to 30 days and see how i feel. swam a mile today. i took oxypowder last night but i still feel like i need to do a full flush so salt water it is - not looking fo ... read more

Last night was the worst i have felt on the fast. i was soo hungry and really couldnt get over the feeling - finally two cups of herbal tea somewhat helped. i went to bed feeling very ordinary and had an awful night sleep. that is two nights in a row. it was a really terrible feeling i cant even descibe it. it felt like my body was saying enough but i am determined to go the 30 days. i gave in and got on the scales and i am 141. How can i have only lost 4 pounds in 10 days on a MC. my weight has gone up in the last 4 days. arggghhhh!!! i knew it wasn’t changing because i could just feel no ... read more

- Day 244 y
Thank goodness i got thru the 10 days. It wasnt that it was hard for me to do, i think my mind and will power are pretty strong and i just did it. but i did not enjoy it. i missed the juice i missed having some variety. and most of all i was pretty much hungry the whole time. last night i went to bed feeling really awful and didnt sleep well at all. so back on the juice tomorrow to see the last 5 days of fasting thru. i read on the mc forum what pepe had written about not looking at the scales and seeing fasting as a cleanse and not a weight loss program. it made me think about the reasons ... read more

Tomorrow is my last day of the master cleanse. i will continue to juice until 30 days. smooth move is doing its job - still nothing abnormal unfortunately. i ran today, i made it three miles without stopping which is what i have been aiming for. a bit sad when i use to be able to run 5 in the same time. but i have to remember i have had two knee surgery’s since then. i feel like my weight has defiantely plateaud. i want to get back to how i felt when i was lean and fit - but i have to remember it took me 8 months of very hard work to get there. So while one month of fasting is a good kick ... read more

- Day 214 y
Yeah another milestone. my weight didnt change today. i have put the scales away and will try to leave them away until 30 days. mainly because it doesnt really matter what the scale says i am going the full 30 days. i will continue the master cleanse for the next 3 days and then go back to a juice fast probably alternating with water/mc only days. i am hoping i will be down to 135 by the end. i will decide if i am going to continue on when i get to 30 days. i think the most i will do is 40 days - my birthday is coming around the corner so i would like to celebrate. i went for a walk on the ... read more

- Day 204 y
Not much to say another day of fasting. I swam a mile today - i was going to do weights but my legs and arms are sore. i think the master cleanse is much harder to do than a juice fast. i have been really hungry. but i want to try and make it to 10 days. i cant wait to have a juice when i am done! Weight is 140. a bit of a boring weekend but it is only 30 days out of my life - there will always be another weekend around the corner. The smooth move is doing its job and the awful taste in gone from my mouth thank goodness. visit the page
