The end of day two of the juicing fast and I feel amazing. Every morning now for weeks, if not months I have had to run my hands in the hot water of a morning to get my poor old fingers working (old as in 38 years old...ridiculous!!) but this morning for the first time in weeks I didn't. They still ached but absolutely nothing like they do normally. I have also noticed that my wrists and other joints affected have not bothered me nearly so much today.
you wonder if whatever I have been feeding myself over the years has
been sorely lacking in nutrients that my body needed if after just two
days I am already noticing such huge changes in my symptoms. I also
felt today like I had been given a shot of adrenalin or something, I had
heaps more energy.
All rather surprising really as
what I was expecting was three if not more days of misery to start with
as my body adjusted to being hit with vile vegetables!! I have to say it
hasn't been too bad not really if you don't count of course the glass
of vomit I served myself this evening!
breakfast I went with the whole fruit idea and it had the desired
effect, it was a much better start for me and seemed a far more natural
drink for first thing, I put the ginger in but laid off the garlic.
Perhaps I might introduce the garlic slowly later on. My morning juice
was carrot, apple, celery, PINEAPPLE, kiwi and ginger. I know it sounds odd but it was very uplifting and filled me up nicely till lunch time.
choose pineapple as I have been reading about it's natural painkilling
and anti-inflammatory properties (Bromelain). Pineapple is also very
rich in manganese, a trace mineral important in the
formation of connective tissue and bones. According to the University of
Maryland manganese plays a role in the metabolism
of fat and carbohydrates, as well as affecting calcium absorption and
blood sugar regulation. Manganese is vital for normal brain
and nerve function, and has antioxidant properties, so thought it might
be a good one to throw into the mix.
time I went green with Kale (yuk) spinach, garlic, carrot, apple,
celery, sprouts and ginger and it was palatable. My Mum actually really
liked it so hoping this fantastically good for me green drink will grow
Then dinner consisted of a glass of red vomit
juice! It was the vilest, nastiest, foulest thing anyone could create
for sure. The colour was awesome and tricked me into thinking I had
created a masterpiece but if was awful. I am proud to say I did down it
though regardless but it was bad, bad, bad. For reference do not mix
Kale (vile but the king of all veges, super high in everything),
spinach, beetroot, ginger, garlic, celery and carrot it does not go
together at all!!!!!
Had a little bit of company with
it today which was nice. Mum and Dad joined me for breakfast and Mum
even had lunch with me. My eldest daughter has decided she rather likes
carrot and ginger juice so for lunch she had boiled egg and soldiers
with carrot juice, which made me laugh.
today like I will easily be able to stick for this for 30 days but of
course at the moment it's only day 3 so pretty easy to say that at the
moment. I am very excited though at the though that if after just 3
days my pain levels have gone down, is it possible I could be pain free
all together if I stick at this and change my crappy eating habits? Has
it all been about what I put in my body? When you think about it, it
seems pretty logical really. What's that expression 'We are what we
eat' (although tonight that would make me vomit!!) seriously though it
makes sense. How long can you feed yourself unhealthy, processed,
salty, fatty foods and prescription meds and it not take it's toll on
your body physically, mentally or emotionally?
more for me, this is it (fighting talk at day three!! Let's see if I am
still there at day 10!!) I am making the change for good!!
My next buy is going to be a dehydrator...more on that another day!
Nighty night folks
