    Juice Fast: Part II day 1-ish?

    Juice fasting is something I just started getting into. My dad has done it for years so I decided to give it a try about two weeks ago using our industrial juicer. I intended the fast to go for about a week and I ended up going for 9 days. I ended up losing about 10 pounds! You are supposed to ease out of the fast by slowly incorporating HEALTHY food back in your diet. Yeah...so much for that. The past couple days I have consumed mostly fresh juice (fruit and veg) YAY GOOD--but also random bites here and there, the occasional midnight binge ( i struggle with late night snacking sooo bad), and lots of bar nights with friends lately. During the fast I def. gained some clarity about myself and my relationship with food....but my constant battle to control binging is still not resolved. BOO! AND I know the # on the scale isn't that important...I like to go by how I feel and how my clothes fit...but to see the number creep up a little after my binges does leave me disenheartened.

    So since I feel like I was semi successful with Fast One....

    I decided to go for another week or so starting today. I plan on making my own modifications to the fast--since I work out regulary and usually pretty intense I may drink some protein shakes (muscle milk light). I also cannot live without coffee...there is absolutely no way I can cut out my precious coffee!

    I hope to cleanse my body, put an end to my mindless snacking and binging habits, and hopefully have some revelations (as my dad puts it).

    This morning I had a cup of coffee and a hugggge mixed fruit juice:

    1 cup of frozen mixed fruit

blackberries strawberries



2 kiwis
Seltzer to dillute it

I'm off to relaxxxxxx. Maybe some yogadownload.com later on?

Those who awaken never rest in one place.
Like swans, they rise and leave the lake.
On the air they rise and fly an invisible course.
Their food is knowledge. They live on emptines. They have seen how to break free.
Who can follow them?
