Juice Fast Day 5 – Suddenly, This is Amazing!

So much energy!

Kind of how I felt

Today was by far better than the previous four. I still crave food, but not as severely. And at about 10 this morning, I got the most astounding burst of energy that lasted until I made it to the gym in the evening. It faded gradually throughout the day, but for a few hours I was totally amped. I felt like I’d drank three red bulls but without the miserable crash that comes after. I repeatedly found myself thinking, “this is amazing!” It was such a good feeling that I for a few hours, I didn’t think about food at all.

I made it to the gym again today and completed a normal workout. I really am happy that I’ve been able to maintain the gym routine. Not only do I not want to sit out of physical activity for  a week, but it’s a good way to pass the time while I’m trying not to think about what I want to eat.

I’ve now extended this fast to at go 8 days, and I’m considering going further. How far I go will depend on how I feel, so after day 8 I’m taking it day by day. The one extra day just makes sense, as it’s a Friday. When I do break the fast, I want to be able to enjoy what I’m eating. I’m usually so rushed in the mornings, especially on Fridays before the weekly meeting. It just makes more sense to do it on a Saturday when I can take the time to cook something great, and sit down and slowly enjoy it.
