So Iím still not hungry. I donít know whatís going on. I havenít lost a single pound (once again, this isnít about losing weight) and I havenít been hungry at all. Iím starting to wonder if Iím sleep walking at night and making myself 4 course meals.
Actually from what I have read it is very common to not see any weight loss until about day five, but the hunger thing is kind of a surprise. Every 30 day fast blog that I have read talks about how hard the first week is but Iím really not having a hard time at all. Now Iím not saying that this whole thing is a cake walk, but I did expect a grueling detox. (knock on wood)
The temptation for all things greasy is still there, but even that has drastically subsided today. But heck itís only day 3, I have a feeling Iím going to eat my words soon, I wonít have anything else to eat.
31 hours and counting.
What Iíve learned so far:
1. Fresh juice from anything doesnít taste so bad. So far Iíve juiced beet, kale, cantaloupe, apple, carrot, spinach, celery and Iím sure some other things and no matter what the mix it REALLY doesnít taste so bad.
2. The hunger isnít the problem, itís the temptation. I went to Target and pretty much everything in the food section looked like the best damn thing in the world.
So far everything is going great. Of course Iím only on day two, so weíll see.
From what I have read what gets most people to stop their fast is the boredom, same thing everyday for 30 days. If anything is going to get me, itís definitely going to be boredom. Of course thatís the challenge.
So I decided to start my fast a day early. I wasn't gitting any sleep because I was just so overwhelmed
by what I am about to attempt. I figured it was a waste of time putting it off any longer.
I have to say C has been amazingly supportive with the whole thing. I am incredibly lucky.
It's 7:50am and I already feel like shit. I think this is because my mind is Fing with my body letting it know that it's not going to be getting any food for a LONG while.
We went to the co-op yesterday and I had one of their fresh juices; apple, spinach, beet, and something else. It was actually very good. What a relief. I haven't tryed my new juicer out, so we'll see if I'm capable of making as good of a juice as the co-op did. We went to the farmer's market yesterday and I stoked up on vegetables I haven't even seen before. My guess is that the juices that I make this week are going to suck because it's going to take me awhile to figure out what I like.
So onward on this stupid voyage. I'll try to remember to post to night to let everyone know how miserable I am.
