Today, to keep me from “getting fatter”, my roommate raided the kitchen. She ate everything from cookies and ice cream to deli meat. The only thing left in the house are vegetables. FML” -America.
Ok…so I did a 24 day juice fast and took a break. I’m about to start another one. Wish me luck. More posts of juice, juice and more juice. Y’all can call me Bishop or Q, either way I got the Juice.
Ok…it’s been a minute since I’ve posted. A lot has been changing in my life the last few weeks. Good changes, painful changes, but ultimately all change is an opportunity for you to make life what you want it to be.
So on day 24 of my fast I decided to eat. I felt ready. A big sign was that I was starting to feel repulsed by the smell of the juiced greens on the last two days of my fast. It was rough. So I went to Ethos Vegan Kitchen and had a “custom” spinach salad. It was like eating a steak. I felt great about my decision.
Since then I’ve eating a majority of raw fruits and still juicing. I’ll have sushi fix but most of it is totally different from what I use to eat. Almost all of the sushi consists of some sort of raw veggie with fish. I’m liking the change and I’m still losing weight since I started eating again. I plan on doing another juice run next month. Wish me luck.
I’m up and can’t sleep because all I can think about is eating something. And being hungry at this time isn’t helping. This fast is getting harder in the final stretch of my first 30 days…I’ll see how I feel tomorrow. I might eat something like a salad or some baby carrots and still continue juicing. This process has taught me a lot about how proper nutrition affects how I feel physically, emotionally, and mentally. Juicing is permanently apart of my way of living, I’m proud of that.
Either way if I do decide to eat a little something, I will continue on with my fast. There are no rules to this except for listen to yourself and treat yourself well. I’m grateful for this experience, and like all experiences this one will continue. I’ll post an update on what I decide tomorrow.
Peace, love and beats.
Chase with limes.
My homie DJ J-Storm put me on to the fact that I might be intaking too many sugars. So he suggested using lime as a chaser to dilute the green taste. Then it reminded me that I drink my ChlorOxygen with water and lime. So I put it under consideration.
Today I realized that I need more apples and that I wanted to weigh myself on the Publix scale. I got my apples, stepped on the scale and (….drum roll……) 263 and a 1/2?! Almost two weeks ago I was 267, I started out at 280. Now I’m not complaining, I’m mega excited about losing the pounds, but to only lose 4 pounds in that time lead me to believe that J-Storm might be right…I’m intaking too many sugars.
So here’s to bitter tasting greens and losing 18lbs! Day 20. Awesome.
