Day 7 - For the first time today I diluted my orange juice. It tasted really good actually. If you have been reading my previous blogs then you would know that I didn't do this beforehand as I did not want too many trips to the loo whilst I was so busy at work.
Anyway, the juice lasted much longer and I even had some left over at the end of the day so left it at work for tomorrow.
I went to a concert this evening and found that I was getting hungry. Hubby ordered a mango frappicino (mixture of mango, passionfruit, green tea and ice cubes) and it tasted OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! Unfortunately, I almost immediately started to get cramp-like feelings. It's amazing how sensitive you get when you are on a juice fast. I felt somewhat uneasy, only subsiding once I fell asleep at night. If that wasn't bad enough, hubby got J20 Mango and Passionfruit and I very stupidly took a sip or two. Bad idea as the cramps felt worse!
We came home about midnight and I weighed in at 9st 11.7lbs. As I have had a frappicino and some artificial juices, I expect my weight to stay roughly the same tomorrow...
Day 8 - I have decided to combine dates that produce the same amount of weight. I knew today would stay the same as I had non-juice type drinks last night. Today was the first time I a)didn't have time to juice; and b) didn't have any fruit to juice! So I relied upon the juice left over from last night and also had a pink grapefruit juice which hubby bought for me from Marks & Spencers. I was reluctant to drink that but there was no alternative. It tasted very good but had a lot of pulp in (which mentally makes me think that I am eating solids!)
I came across someone on this forum talking about 'oil pulling' which really intrigued me and I looked up what it was. Apparently it is a method by which oil is swished and pulled around in the mouth for 15-20 mins every day to ward off all kinds of diseases. My main point of interest was that it helps with bleeding gums (which I seem to have quite a lot of lately (nothing juice-related). Seems interesting and I am keen to try it out. Check it out here ttp://www.oilpulling.com/.
I gave it a try today with black seed oil
Anyway, I realised I did not really have a proper BM and kind of forced myself (sorry to be so graphic). The result was minor but almost odourless (again, sorry to be so graphic, but trying to give you the real details here).
After starting this juice fast I have noticed sound sleep, which has been a problem in the past. It's undisturbed as well, which is great.
Was 9st 11.2lbs at last count. I knew I would be the same as today, of which I made allowances for...next allowance is at the weekend...
