Today is day 16 of my juice feast. I am hoping to go for 31 days, but am taking things day by day. I have been feeling really good from the start, which is such a blessing & gift! My juices have been delicious & satisfying, my body has felt vibrant, I haven’t suffered headaches and I have had no problem maintaining my normal level of activity … until this morning. Last night I got hit with a sudden feeling of ickiness & have come down with something … cough & sore throat. I suspect my green juices will help me bounce back quickly! In any case, my only real challenge has been staying warm–I have to dress in layers & always have a scarf & hat near by. I drink lots of herbal teas & occasional homemade mugs of miso/veggie soup broth to warm my core.
For me a juice feast is mind over matter. I set a goal & I just keep plugging along day by day with little question of whether or not I am going to continue. I have had a couple of moments where something riled me & I found that my mind immediately wandered to food. Interesting observation, huh?! I’m sure I turn to food for many reasons that do not have to do with hunger & I will do my best to carry this awareness with me as I move forward. 🙂
Juice feasting gives me a feeling lightness, mental clarity, sharper vision, more focus, weightloss (my clothes are fitting great!) & just an overall sense of balance & wellness (despite the cold that I seem to have gotten) … & that is why I return to juice feasting several times a year!
