Juice Fasting, day three

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Well if day two was easier today was definitely tougher. The headaches weren't as bad as day one but they weren't practically nonexistent like day two. The cravings though, no doubt that those were definitely worse.
I had an all day orientation for my job today and lunch was provided. croissant sandwiches which did look good. I not only wanted them, but I wanted to reward myself for resisting with beef and cheddar sandwiches from arby's and I don't eat red meat or poultry. I wanted the cookies the caterer brought. I wanted a rich, washington made chocolate bar. I wanted a snickers. I wanted fish sticks. I wanted the veggie nuggets at home in my freezer. Somehow I managed to get through the day.
And then I picked my daughter up from day care and we went to costco. Fortunately we came too late for samples. I got her the pizza I promised her after checked out and I sat there and smelled her pizza as she ate it. Did I mention that she's two? It took her a good 45 minutes to eat that slice. The headaches came back and I was so tempted to end it all and take a huge bite out of it. Somehow I made it through.
I really want to quit but I can't. I need this. I can't start on solids yet or I'll go back to my old eating habits. It will get better and I know it. My body still hasn't figured out what's going on but it will. The headaches will go away. The energy will come back. Tomorrow should be the last day of the withdrawal headaches or the first day of the good part. Either way, I'll be better prepared tomorrow.

    Really? In my experience longer fasts are easier than short fasts. But then again you know your body better than I do.
