I weighed in at 208.0 this morning, so another pound gone. Last night was a bit better than day 1, energy levels were up, but by 9pm I was ready to pass out hard. I distracted myself by leaving the house after work, so that helped, not being around the kitchen. I think that is pretty key. Cravings are still there…..
But this morning I feel clear headed and a kind of spazzy energy. My thoughts are pretty fleeting, it is difficult to focus, but it is better than yesterday, for sure. Must be the huge blast of nutrients to your system. It is nice that the comedown is gradual and not destructive…it is just a slow decline into hunger. Mrs Banana Nick made my juices today, thank you very much, and they are delicious. She is much more restrained with ingredients, while mine become a cornucopia of vegetables and fruits, she limits the ingredients, which create a much more delicious drink. I get carried away sometimes. I am tasting ginger in the afternoon drink that I just drank, very tasty.
After work we have plans to go watch a concert in the park, sitting on a picnic blanket without a picnic. Sad, but true. Juice in hand, distracted by the sweet sounds of summer. It seems that we have alot more time on our hands, that is a nice side benefit from juicing. Throwing veggies in the juicer is a quick process…no cooking time, so chopping, no waiting for things to boil. So it has been nice to have some extra minutes…. extra time to think about all the food we would like to be eating.
Right now, an apple to chew on, or some broccoli would be nice. Is that wrong? My teeth are bored.
