Day number three is here and I have a confession to make: I FEEL GREAT!!!
I am not hungry, I don’t feel the need to munch on anything, I feel alert. This is fantastic! Day Two is a big hurdle to get over and as long as you can focus and be determined to make it. Juice Fasting isn’t about making it to Day 30 or Day 10 or whatever your target is. Your goal in Juice Fasting is getting through each moment as if it were your last. After all, that is what we are juicing for, right? More moments! Just make it through today or even the next hour or even the next minute and you will have success.
Naturally, simply making it to Day 3 doesn’t make me an expert by any means. There are plenty of things that I still need to work out. Most importantly, I need to drink much, much, much more water. Drinking water is not something I do naturally. If I am thirsty, I typically grab myself a Diet Coke. How terrible is that? When I drink waters is usually shortly after I wake up and once before bed, not nearly enough. I am going to change that though. I will have eight 16-ounce glasses a day. (I will pretend they are pints of beer.)
I know that it sounds like a lot of water but water is (obviously) great for you. We all need it every day and on top of that it eliminates toxins as well as reduces hunger. I am sure my hunger will return so I will be ready with more water in my body.
How Is The Exercise Going? Well, I have so far done everything that I have committed to, that being 3-miles every day. I have done that each of the past two days and I will certainly be doing it from here on out. However, I feel the need to do so much more. I know I said I would be adding basic calisthenics to my 3-miles but I don’t think that is enough. Any suggestions there would be greatly helpful. Feel free to comment below with exercise suggestions.
Here is what I had for juice yesterday…

Last but not least I have to say something more important than anything else I have said in today’s entry… THANK YOU! All my readers so far have been overwhelmingly supportive of what I am doing and I can’t thank you enough. This isn’t easy but to hear things in comments like “I’m pulling for you” or “You can do it” makes it that much easier. Even just knowing that people are reading this helps tremendously. Watching the views go up throughout the day gets my heart going. So, I am sure I will say it again but thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your support! JUICE ON!!!
