So.. my juicing fast has begun!
Saturday afternoon I popped to the shops to purchase fruit & veg galore ready to detox my body. I was amazed at the amount of people who were staring at my health-filled trolley and we even had a few comments from people. “Are you having a cocktail party tonight?”
Saturday night I went out for my final “meal” and had a nice turkish with a friend. Not going to discuss that too much as already it’s making my mouth water just thinking about it………..
So anyway Sunday morning came – Sunday 6th April 2014.. the day i’m going to change my life.
I woke up after quite a bad night’s sleep – not the ideal way i wanted to begin this detox but hey-ho i’ve made the promise to myself now.
My fiance Lee decided to take part with me – he isn’t overweight but was also inspired by the Joe Cross film and wanted to support me – bless him 🙂
I decided to follow Jason Vale’s 7lb in 7 days plan. Two juices down and we were feeling ok (8am and 11am) I must admit I did spend Sunday a lot differently to how I usually would. In fact, we stayed indoors all day watching films – i can’t remember the last time I did that. I think I was too scared to go into the outside world and be tempted by something.
2pm Juice check and feeling fine 🙂
And then it hit me… 3pm!
3pm hurt – i started feeling all the withdrawal symptoms i’d read about – headache, light headed, tired. I suddenly realised that maybe these first few days weren’t going to be such a walk in the park that it looked!
I had my 4th Juice an hour earlier then i was feeling pretty rubbish. To make things worse, Lee “broke”. He realised he needed his food and made himself a bowl of soup and a sandwich. He was very sweet though and ate it away from me. I don’t blame him though. In fact, I was worried about him doing it as he has an active job and he needs to eat.
So i kept on.. i juiced on… and went to bed that night with a very comforting warm apple & cinnamon juice. I slept like a baby – which was lovely 🙂
I’ve woken up this morning feeling pretty out of it but not feeling as desperate I was yesterday.. just dreading that 3pm moment happening again…
On the plus side, I got on the scales this morning and i’ve dropped 3lbs! 🙂 3lbs in one day!
This has given me the motivation to carry on
