Day 9 of my juice fast
This is a video of me making a green juice with my Angel juicer. The video is a bit long, but I wanted to give people a good sense as to the actual amout of time it take to make a juice with this juicer.
Green Juice Recipe:
-2 Green Apples
-4 Stalks of Celery
-10 Purple Kale Leaves
-1/2 Lemon (in the video I used 1 but tasted too strong)
-1 Large Cucumber
In terms of an update on how I'm feeing, I'm mostly over my cold or detox reaction and I'm actually starting to feel really good now. I did have a couple of hiccups along the way on the juice fast so far and actually ate dinner a couple of nights when I thought that I was done and it was going to be my last day. Instead of beating myself up about it, I just woke up the next day and got back on the juices. I did have the ocassional piece of fruit or veggies as I was cutting them up to juice, since I was thinking it would be good to get a bit of fibre in my system and again I think that's okay.
I appologise if my previous post sounded very depressing or if it sounded some alarms that I really was suffering emotionally and mentally, I just had decided to post an update to the blog in case anyone was wondering what I've been up to and let people know what happened. My frustration was mainly about how I was feeling physically and I had just woken up in the middle of the night feeling sick and I didn't think the juice fasting was going to give me the relief I was looking for.
I'm glad I did write the post now since I did hear from my old triathlon coach Brett (@ZenTriathlon http://www.zentriathlon.com/) and Rich Roll (@richroll http://www.richroll.com/) who is a really inspirational ultra-endurance athlete. I really appreciate their concern and the nice messages they sent.
In fact, I woke up the next day and my cold wasn't as bad and I was feeling good enough not only to walk, but I went for a light jog for somewhere around 3-4km. I could hardly believe it! The juice fast is working and inspiration from those guys does wonders as well. Check out their websites if you're not familiar with them.
Anyway, I promised some more posts and by the way I did go ahead a renew the Blog for a few more years for my 3 readers! ;D
Thanks and make this an outstanding day!
