Day 3: Water, Water Give Me Water

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…

JUICE 1 – Apple, Orange, Pear
JUICE 2 – Apple, Apricot, Carrot, Celery, Blackberry, Ginger
JUICE 3 – Mean Green
JUICE 4 – Mean Green
JUICE 5 – Carrot, Beet, Celery, Orange, Apple

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!!!

  1. Congrats on Day 3!!! I’m thinking about adding juice into my diet again. I was wondering if you had any caffeine withdrawals? I am a coffee drinker and when I tried my 10 day fast (lasted 1.5 days) I got really sick and I think it was because I stopped the coffee cold turkey.

    Best of Luck!

  2. Hi! I’m on day 9 of my juice fast and am feeling pretty great as well. You really have gotten through the worst of the detox systems, it gets easier from here on out! 🙂

    Congrats and looking forward to reading about your journey!

  3. Thank you for taking the time to document your journey. I am in the pre-prep and research phase. My guided 15day reboot starts on Jan 23rd and based on the changes I am already making I am looking forward to it! Your blog is encouraging! Please keep it up! I’m “rooting” (did I really just make a veggie joke?!) for YOU!

  4. I am following your juiciful journey… Keep it up, and don’t forget to supplement protein. As for exercise suggestions, you could get yourself a vintage Thighmaster. 😛

  5. How do you manage to juice during the work day. I’ve attempted juicing but not being able to juice at work/ not being able to carry 4 bottles of juice with me to work I’ve always stopped juicing. Thank you.

    • That is something I can’t answer. I am currently unemployed. My only suggestion would be what you mentioned you not being able to do that is bringing pre-made juice with you. Sorry, I can’t help you out with that.

  6. I’m on day 1 today, so will be following a little behind you. I’m starting with 10 days, as I’m still nursing my 11 month old, but I may extend it if all goes well. Good luck to us both!

      • I have a 6 year old and a 4 year old as well, so life is chaos! I’ve been overweight since before i had the children, and my lack of energy is becoming a real problem (I mean in everyday life, not during the reboot) Not to mention the risk of heart disease, diabetes etc etc shortening my life so I’m not there for them. So I had a “now or never moment” and decided to start. Have to admit, I feel like all of my energy has been drained from me while i was asleep, so you saying that you feel great is really encouraging me to continue. While doing this reboot, I’m getting back on track with my “OA” (overeaters annonymous) workbook. It may not be the problem for you, but i know compulsive eating is what got me to this state in the first place, and I know i need to be able to have some contol of that disease once the reboot is over, so it made sense to me to do both. Just thought I’d mention it, in case you or anyone else following your journey wants some extra help.

        Anyhow, thanks for documenting your journey, it’s really encouraging!!

  7. I’m on Day 3 as well! I’m excited to follow along. I’m feeling great, too, though I am craving some bad food. Juice on! 😀
