3 days of juice?

Well it looks like I am going to try do it!

I already have my juice made for the day and have drunk down my first glass.  I am only doing this for 3 days (my days off) to see how it makes me feel.  Today is day 44 of very low sugar and avoiding wheat carbs.  I know I am getting that in the juice but again, I am eating fruit so that is no big deal.

I did go to bed early but I woke up at 4am.  Our taxes were supposed to hit today and 4am is usually when the bank updates. They were not showing so I puttered around for thirty minutes then tried to go back to bed. I slept but it was very lightly and restless.  After hubbers and the boys left I fell into a deeper sleep. Then I realized I better get my ass up if I want to try this juicing thing.  I am working on post that will detail the juicing and how I feel.  You might have to wait till day 3 for that though.  I am not sure yet.

Taxes are here now- Yeah!  Now to find a reasonable roofer and tree cutter upper.  The person that fixed a leak in our roof two years ago I planned on using seems to not be in business anymore :(   Anyone know a roofer in Central FL?  For the tree I have a phone number of who the neighbors across the street used.  I just have to call to set up an appointment.  (Our roof is the original roof and is 25 years old.  When we bought the house 10 years ago we knew it needed a new roof. We kept putting it off.  Now is the time get it done before we have a major problem)

Off to drink my water and see what trouble I am going to get into today.

EDIT:   10 hours down and I am not sure I will continue this.  I feel fine but I want to eat!!!!! I fear I am not as strong as I thought I was. I am super stressed- while I don't want sugar/carbs I do want solid food. 

 The tree is going to be *A LOT* of money to get cut and hauled.  The roof is going to be at least $1000 more than I thought. B has a dental visit Thurs for some work that is stressing me out. (I dislike the dentist)


  1. my sleep has been all off too, i need a routine!! or something different to get me sleeping and awake normal hours...

  2. what did you put in your juice today? the juicing for health website has taught me a lot about the healing and detoxing properties of each fruit and vegetable. it's a great guide on what to have depending on what you want to achieve with the juice fast. [or juicing in general]

  3. juicing for an extended period of time is hard to do and to keep up with. If it's what you want to do, don't let anything get in the way!

  4. Good for you for TRYING something new that you think could improve your health! You never know unless you give it a shot, so even if you don't go 3 days, you'll learn something. I have never done well on juice fasts, myself; I think my body needs more protein. I know people who swear by it though. Just goes to show that we are all different. You will find what works for you!

  5. I wish you much success with the juicing. I don't know if I'm strong enough for that. :)

  6. I would stay far away from juicing. Protein is the way to go.
