Juices, Supplements etc. in order of consumption

1. 1 quart water with lemon

2. Bok choy, swiss chard, apple, celery, mint, cucumber
1/2 large head bok choy, 2 large leaves swiss chard, 1 apple, 5 stalks celery, handful mint, 1/2 cucumber.
I was a little burnt out on the lemon from last night so I kept it simple this morning and this was very clean and enjoyable.

3. 1 quart water

4. Red Swiss chard, cucumber, blackberries, celery
1/2 bunch red Swiss chard, 1/2 cucumber, 6 oz blackberries, 5 stalks celery.
This was so much better without the lemon. Simple and good and I love the color.

5. 1 quart water

6. Spinach, apple, mint, cucumber, celery, cucumber
1/2 lb spinach, 1 apple, handful mint, 1/2 cucumber, 5 stalks celery.
Very clean and simple. That seems to be the juice theme for the day today.

7. 1 quart water

As you can see, I didn't get in the full 4 quarts today. My stomach just wouldn't cooperate.

Starting 173.5
Today 166.5

I went up a 1/2 pound. No biggie.

6 3/4 hours

I know I see on other people's blogs that they are going on this amount of sleep and feeling great. I am not there yet. This is not enough sleep for me. The superbowl messed me up a bit.

Five Tibetans
I know I said I was going to do the rebounder today but I didn't feel very good today so I didn't do it.

I woke up feeling rather blah today. I did my normal routine hoping it would get things moving but no luck. Later on in the day after my second juice it seemed that my stomach just wasn't working. The juice was stuck in there and making all kinds of noises. It didn't feel good and I went to bed. I kept drifting in and out of sleep. I was so tired.

Coated tongue
Underlying heartburn

Positive changes
I love my skin.

Feeling kind of blah today. Not bad but not good. I had a bout with poor me tonight while I was up in bed and my family was downstairs eating tacos. The smell wafted upstairs and I could hear them all laughing and having fun.

I was quick to snap out of it because this is exactly the kind of scenario I am trying to stop. So many times I have felt sick and end up separating myself from my family. I have missed so much with them. This juice feast is the beginning of the end of this pattern for me.

I wanted tacos.

I don't really have much to say tonight. I just want to go to sleep. I know this doesn't make for a very interesting blog post. Sorry. I will feel better tomorrow.

Hope you have a better day today! Thanks for the encouragement. Reading about your journey gives me a good idea about what to expect a few day from now.
