I don't like being sick. Right now my head hurts, my body is weak, and my stomach feels like it's carrying jagged boulders.
Not a great feeling.

Maybe it's due to all the sugar and unhealthiness I've been eating I regret it now.
As you know from my earlier post, my plan to start a juice fast starts today. Sad story: the box that I thought contained a juicer, was, to my dismay, carrying old knicknacks, a lamp, and other junk. We do not have a juicer. :(

Instead I decided to just do the raw fruits and vegetables fast for the full two weeks. If I feel like this the whole time it will end very shortly. Right now I'm considering eating some saltines or nuts or something.

I also can not decide if I should do a salt water flush. On one hand the thought of cleaning out some toxic waste sounds terrific. On the other hand, if I try to drink the salt water I may throw it up. Should I try it or not?

I'll have to let you know soon...

If there is anyone reading this I sure hope you don't feel as terribly sick as I feel right now. :(

Juice Fasting!

I'm excited. Really.

I need something to get off these ten pounds and start feeling better. My colon is coated in sugar and fat...

Yes, yes, I'm not actually 'fat' on the BMI scale so I'm not expecting to lose 15 pounds like some people, but I'm hoping for at least 7 over the two week period. :)

Here's what I'm doing: First week (7 days) starting tomorrow will be all juices, freshly squeezed and possibly salt water flushes. The second week I'll begin incorporating solid food, but only fruits and veggies. Then, by the third week I'll add simple carbs and proteins such as nuts, white meat, oats, rice, flax seed, etc. On the fourth and final week I'll bring in dark chocolate, yogurt, milk, and eggs. This will be my lifestyle. After the fourth week I will allow for two homemade sweet things (no processed foods) every week such as Christmas cookies, birthday cake, and other society pleasing desserts.

Every day I'm going to write down what I eat, how I feel, and each week I'll weigh in.

I'm hoping to blog every few days with progress, disappointment, and all other realities. :D
