JuiceFeasting 2010: Day 7

1 week down!!  I am very happy that I have completed a whole week of juice feasting.  Tomorrow, I will know weight lose as well as give some other 1 week statistics along with a recap.

Juices

Today I drank:

  • 1 quart carrot, spinach, apple
  • 1 quart celery, tomato, cilantro, garlic (much better with only half a glove), cucumber
  • 1 quart cantaloupe

I started with a green juice today, but I was up early (4am) because I had to leave early, and I just could not stomach anything until about 12:30. Even then, I was forcing myself.

I only drank 3 quarts today and that felt like way more then enough.

Exercise

None today.  I was in the car most of the day.

Energy

I yawned the day away today, not sure if this is due to not enough sleep (got 7 hours and that is usually enough for me), or not drinking juice earlier in the day.  I yawned until I had my last juice of the day, a cantaloupe juice.

Other Food

I had the same issue today where being on the road all day creates want for fast food.  The more I thought about it, the more think this is a left over habit from when I was a kid.  On car trips, it was the time I could have a lot of junk food and fast food.

On car trips as a kid, on a 6 hour car trip, we would usual stop 2 or 3 times.  Once or twice for food usually McDonald‘s, and we always then stopped for ice cream at Fosters.  Even though, I was not hungry at all, I thought of (and semi wanted) a McDonald’s cheeseburger and fries.  I wanted Foster‘s ice cream which I have not had in over a decade.

When I took the time to really think about it, I didn’t actually want that food.  It was just a habit. The actual idea of eating it made me a bit ill.  Eating junk food on a car trip for years has become a convenient reflex, but a very unhealthy one.

I didn’t eat at any of the restaurants today.  Instead, I enjoyed my juices when I got home.  And I am glad I made the decision to do this juice feast, and I am glad I didn’t stop at the passing restaurants.
