Juice Fast Day One
I'm going on a juice fast. My goal is to fast for 10 days, but I won't feel like a failure if I only make it to 5 or even 3. There is something about reaching this goal that motivates me, though, and I don't want to let that fire go. Yesterday was technically day one. I spent most of the day trying to procure a juicer, so I was drinking water with the exception of Tropicana Grapefruit Juice and a Juice 'n Java freshly pressed apple juice. (Did you know Juice 'n Java presses apples everyday for fresh apple juice? Try it. Juice 'n Java—the only place I consistently go to for both their drinks and poor customer service. It's worth it.) I finally retrieved a juicer around 9 p.m.—a Jack Lalanne Power Juicer Model MT1000 from this couple that was selling it on Craigslist. Annie was so sweet to let me borrow hers but as soon as I saw the one for sale, I had to have it. That was an impulse buy for sure, but I've been using it ever since, so justified.... I got home past midnight one juicer richer and one stomach hungrier. However, all in all, the day went really well for drinking mostly water. a.k.a. I wasn't hangry and could concentrate on a conversation for a decent amount of time.
