Juice Fast Day 6

Wellness

It’s the end of day 6 and I’m finished!

I have to admit the last day was not as stringent as before. After yesterday’s salad fiasco, I wasn’t hungry at all…for anything. I had my morning lemon water and water in general, but thinking of any of the juices made me nauseous. It wasn’t until after 1:00pm that I had my first juice. Then I had 2 more and that was it.

In the end, I’m happy I did it. I feel lighter and it was a great motivator to get healthy. On the downside, it was REALLY difficult. The flu symptoms were the worst, but I guess if you want the toxins out you have to accept the pain. And as for losing weight, I have no idea. It was a detox for health, not a diet.

Would I do it again? Yes, but probably at a retreat/spa with all the herbs, massages, colonics, etc. I feel like those things really help the process. What I would do at home is a modified version of juices with a daily plant based meal.

As for tomorrow I plan on a morning smoothie, a plant based meal, and a squash soup that’s in process now. Cheers to healthy living!

 

 

 

 

Juice Fast Day 5

Wellness

Good morning from Monterrey. It’s day 5 and I can see the light!

 

I felt okay today, but not energized like yesterday. I was wishing the juices were more varied. I have 4 different flavors each day, but they are same everyday in the same order. The monotony is getting to me.

In the evening, I broke it. I had a salad. About an hour later, the salad came right back up. So does that still count as cheating??? haha.

Anyway, tomorrow is my last day of juicing and I’m wondering how to handle the days after. I definitely want to continue the plant-based healthy eating. It’s time to do some research and get a plan in place.

 

Juice Fast Day 2

Wellness

Day 2

I was anticipating feeling bad this morning, but I woke up at 8:00am feeling really good. I did my morning routine (see day 1 post) and began my day.  However, 11:30am came and so did the headache, yuck mouth, and light headedness. By 6:00pm, I felt like crap. It became a tv, reading, napping type of day. The good news was I didn’t start craving food until 3:00pm.

The picture above are the 4 different  juices I’m drinking each daily. They’re all good, but the Almond Joy is delicious! It”s an almond, cinnamon, vanilla drink that completely satisfies my sweet tooth. In bed by 10pm.

Let the Juice Fast Begin!

Wellness

Since I’ve been feeling so sluggish/slobbish lately, I needed to find a way to jumpstart myself back into healthy living, I’ve been doing small healthy things here and there, but for whatever reason, I haven’t been able to fully commit. So what brilliant idea have I come up with to solve this dilemma?  I decided to go ‘all in’ on a juice fast for 6 days.

I found a juice bar called JuiceMart here in Monterrey. They also make fresh detox juices for at home juice fasts.  I begin tomorrow!

I’ve gone to a 9 day juice fast retreat before, so I have an idea of what it’s like. I’m anticipating the toughest part being that I will not be in a controlled environment this time. I’ll be posting my experience along with all the wellness activities I will be doing. I welcome any recommendations anybody might have.
