Weighed 207.4 today. Slowing down on the weight loss. I was pretty inactive yesterday, no exercise to speak of, so almost 1 pound weight loss is pretty good without exercise. Maybe it means I am starving myself, I don’t know. Feeling good though. Didn’t have too many cravings last night. We had our dinner juice and sat on the couch…didnt make it to the park. Watched the Journey of Natty Gann with our daughter. An 80′s classic! In a time when Disney movies were a little riskier, where they cussed like real people do and were not as sugar sweet as they are now. It was sappy for sure, at the end, but the harsh realities of life in the 30′s were shown without worrying about kids sensitive feelings. Much like food, movies are overly processed these days too haha. Is this where I say “I digress”? I think so.
My stomach is feeling pretty empty still, not really ever being full, just have this sloshy feeling of all the juice in my belly. Energy levels were ok, I was not nearly as cranky and irritable as I was the first 2 days. I was ready for bed by 9pm but zoned out on the computer for 90 minutes or so after that. I don’t like that part of this experience. More substance is needed to prolong the energy levels necessary to get a full day out of life, it seems. It also feels like time has slowed waaaay down. I think that alot of my time is thinking about what I am going to eat next, and now that it is just juice, it has depressed me a bit, making it a struggle to get through the day, which slows down the time. I am enjoying the slower pace though, no plans have been made for the last few days and we have been able to relax, so that is nice. Just go with the flow, because the energy will not be there to do anything strenuous.
I had to go to the vegetable market on Hawthorne after work yesterday to re-stock up on supplies. Spent $55. On Sunday I spent $75, so that’s a total of $130 for the week, that should be enough to get us through tomorrow. We will have eaten 10 pounds of carrots in one week! dang.
I bet I will just be getting used to the juices by the time its all finished. I am looking forward to friday evening, when the juicing will end, however. This is tough! I really enjoy the light feeling and losing weight, but I also really enjoy food and eating…this is my (and everyone like me that gets fat real easy) life’s connundrum…the balance. Discipline during the week and cheat days on the weekend seems to be my way.
