Days 17 & 18. Absent minded eating!

But I didn't swallow!!!
Yesterday evening I absent mindedly put a piece of cooked broccoli in my mouth and started chewing. What the ?!!! If it hadn't tasted so foreign (cooked!) I might have swallowed it I guess but I realised what I was doing in time. I wonder how much I eat without thinking usually. Even if it is mostly healthy stuff I'm preparing for the kids. Scary thought.
14 pounds down and my clothes are getting seriously loose!! I can see my face looks different in the mirror - more like a younger me. My skin is super soft too so I'm feeling really good appearance wise and that's a great motivation to keep going.
Mood wise I've been a bit snappy with the kids. I haven't been drinking extra juice to make up for the increased exercise and I think maybe I should. I'm not afraid of calories...it's just a matter of finding time to make an extra juice! Unless, I stop off at the juice place on the way home from my walk each day......refuel before I come back into the dinnertime rush with the kids. That might work, and it would feel like a daily treat. I need to keep tweaking things to give me the best possible chance of making it to 28 days.
I've been for good walks yesterday and today, now I want to get some small weights for some arm-toning exercises...I should be able to get to the sports shop tomorrow morning. That can be my 3 week gift to myself, a few days early.
I've had no vegetable broth since the weekend. It got so I couldn't stand the smell of it cooking on the stove. Instead I've been drinking even more hot lemon, and mandarin squeezed in hot water a couple of times too.
I've been thinking, just tentatively, about how I'll break the fast and I think I've had a brilliant idea! From day 25 or 26 I wont sieve my juice. At the moment I'm using a tea strainer on top of my juice glass and I strain 1 - 3 tsp of pulp out each glass of juice. Some fruits (like pears, in my juicer) turn out more pulpy, and some fruits (like kiwis and mangoes) I don't even bother to juice because they're pretty much ALL pulp...well that's with my juicer anyway. So, day 29 I'm thinking I will juice/pulp some mango. After that I'm not thinking too much about but I will do some research closer to the time. I'm reading recipe books on and off but I'm not ready to start thinking about ME eating yet. A week from now and I'll make more detailed plans for breaking my fast.
