JuiceFeasting 2010: Day 12

Day 12 = completed!

At this point, I am thinking of ending my juice feast at the 30 day mark. There are two major reasons for this, the first is there is a chance I am going to doing a major move (more then 2000 miles away) and I don’t think that juice feasting would be the best way to experience that.

The second reason is my heart does not seem to be in it and has not been for a couple days. I will wait and see if this continues. I love some of the effects, and reason 2 is not enough of a reason to make me stop yet, but reason 1 would push me over the edge.

Again, I had the problem with being on a juice feast for today doesn’t bother me, but the idea of going 100 days leads to a “What the in world have I agreed to!?” anxiety.

I am also having huge trouble trying to stay focused. I am not getting as much done was I would like because my head is way high up in the clouds.

Juices

  • 1 cup cantaloupe (left over from the juicing of 1 cantaloup)
  • 1 quart watermelon
  • 1 quart green apple kale
  • 1 quart watermelon

I went for a walk after my first watermelon juice, and then I came home, and had two oranges. For the oranges, I cut them into wedges, and sunk my teeth into them, sucking the juice out and spiting out the little fiber that got into my mouth. Most of the fiber stayed on the rind.

I hate orange juice, but I found I love it this way. It is fresh, and I manage not to swallow any fiber. I think this might become and after walk treat for me. It gives my mouth something to bite into which I enjoy. Also, except for melon juices, I don’t seem to like juice fruit juices. They are far too sweet for me. But this is just perfect.

Exercise

I took a 45 minutes walk today in the rain. It was wonderful, though a bit cold. I am really enjoying getting outside everyday.

Energy

My energy is still very unfocused and ungrounded. I am still doing lots of staring into to space, and even after sleeping for 8.5 hours, I wake up (without an alarm) and just stay in bed wide away and stare at the ceiling for 30 minutes.

I find it very easy to slip into my own little world, and I have spent more time day dreaming in the past almost 2 weeks, that I have in years. Reality seems to hold very little interest for me.

I am sleeping about 8.5 hours a night right now. Today, I did not have any high energy times, but my energy was even all day. Low, but even. My typical energy level is high and even, then it dips about 5 minutes before bed time, which is how I know it is bed time.

Supplements

I took my B-12 and zeolite. I think I am going to stay with just these two for a week and then reevaluate.

So far, so good, bring on day 13!
