I just found this page and I much prefer it so I am moving the other blog i had over here. seems I will find more support here then where I was where no one could read it. Lots of people have kept a record of their fasts and i find it inspiring. So this blog is all my initial stuff from the start of my fast it will read from oldest starting under here to newest at the bottom and then i will post a new one for day 7 and on.
This place is great!!!! PS THIS POST IS REALLY LONG

Before I begin
I decided after many health issues and much time spent seeing a naturopathic Dr that I was tired of feeling crappy all the time and that I wanted to finally be healthy the way God intended. After much research and mental preparation I have decided to begin a 30 day juice fast. I have never fasted before so this might be stretching it to the extreme. I've done a lot of research and I think the combination of fresh veggie juices organic broths, and green tea and of course water will keep me plenty satisfied. I know I will be in for many a rough patches but I am committed to getting healthy and being the best I can be both physically and mentally.
The reason for the blog is really for my own personal account of everything. I don't know if anyone will follow me on my journy to health but it is here none the less. If you stop by and read this and are totally thinking I am psycho please refrain from the negative comments as they will not help much. But if you want to leave any words of encouragement please do.
this is the night before i begine. In 30 mins technically it is day 1, i'm pumped. Not looking forward to the headache that is going to come on but i will push through it.
I am going to try and keep a record EVERYDAY, should not be too hard it does not take much. Hopefully it will be an enlightening experience!

Well most of the day I was just fine. No really uncomfortable situation or anything like that. I think the reason was because i had already been sorta mini fasting everyday and had added in vegetable juice as a daily part of my life.
I didn't start feeling yucky and getting a headache until about 10 in the evening. Now I have a low grade headache and feel a bit nauseous. I think that might be the juice doing its thing Tonight i had this one thats suppose to be really good for cleaning out cancer causing cells and heavy metals. It looks like uh well you don't want to know. IT wasn't that bad tasting though i put it into a water bottle so i couldn't see the colour hahaha
I was also a bit tired today, more so then normal but that is to be expected. I took a good 2 hour nap later in the afternoon and felt a bit better after. I really hope that the worst of it comes this weekend i don't want to be looking and feeling like crap at work all that much.
I am going to be having to really tough time at work this week. They are celebrating our accomplishments as a centre with various days of treats. And there is going to be a chocolate FOUNTAIN!!!!!!! I'm a female and I also love chocolate (go figure) so that is going to be a definite challenge. The nice thing is one of the days is a pizza day and the last time I ate pizza I was not feeling good at all!!! so that should be easy to avoid thank goodness.
Well thats all for now. More to come tomorrow
well my computer died for a few days so hence no posts
So far this is not so bad. Day 2 i had a WICKED headache and was really tired but days 3 and 4 i have been full of energy and feeling pretty good. I have however discovered i am a bored/emotional eater. when I don't have anything to do I find myself wanting to go eat. thats not the best thing ever. But i have resisted. I was really good today. It was pizza day at work they bought everyone pizza and i declined and had no trouble at all. YAY me

Hot stone massages
Yes that is right ladies and gentleman hot stone massages are where it is at. I use to be very very afraid and self concious of massages then I had one, I was like this is alright i kinda like it. Then my Naturopathic dr advised me every 3 weeks to go get a massage as its pampering myself and I've been through so much I deserve it. And it would really help heal some of my issues so Alas I signed on. I've grown addicted to my massages. I got once a month now but for SEVERAL months i was going every 3 weeks and man the difference it made. No more headaches.
Now the downside is given I am 4 days into a fast and she pretty much caused my lymphatic systen to dump I am likely to feel kinda crappy tomorrow so I'm prepared for it. I already feel headachy and nauseaus, but i am drinking lots of water as she recommended. She (massage therapist) just actually finished a cleansing fast as well. She's pretty cool. We get quite chatty lately. We both see the same Naturopathic dr so we compare notes all the time its great.
Anyway thats my longer update on how things are going tomorrow could be interesting

day 5 and 6
Alright so harder to update when the site goes down. Although this is more for me then anyone else anyway and i don't even know if anyone is reading this there is no way for me to know!
Day 5 was interesting I started to get really tired and lethargic towards the end of the day I went sorta pale and just wanted to crawl in bed and go to sleep. Needless to say i didn't make it to bed early so today i was feeling tired again. However my colour has returned which is good. Its not so bad. I am sorta missing food though i really wanted to eat garlic toast last night as my parents had cooked some up and it was all i could smell for hours. 6 days in means only 24 more to go hahahaha
Someone commented that my face looked much trimmer today but didn't want to say anything earlier as they were not sure if i would be embarassed by that or not. that was a nice thing totally helped to boost my spirits. I'm still going strong though and I resisted the chocolate fountain today GO ME!!!!!!!!
I am hoping to get to bed a bit earlier tonight so i can actually be rested for tomorrow. I have a lot of ground to cover tomorrow with regards to making up some material i missed.

I think my liver is cleaning itself out now, it kinda feels funny. At least i hope that is what it is doing. I have these things to help detox my liver which i had sorta stopped taking but i am going to start back up on them again just to be safe. AFter all this is a fast so the idea is to get healthy and if the supplements aid in that process well then all the more power to me.
Just a weird symptom wanted to document it down. Tonight I am actually getting my butt to bed early so i won't be dead tomorrow. It is friday and I am back tracking a bit at work and will have some free time but thats okay. I still want to be somewhat awake. Unlike today where I could not talk and instead of saying price i kept saying plice. Everyone thinks its cuz I am so focused on food or something but i don't think i am.
