I’ve Had a Few Minor Setbacks

.

Day 2 – Jan 2 (one setback)

So I had a minor setback. Could not get my stomach to stop feeling nauseous and my head was killing me. Plus I was lethargic, so I decided to eat some of these golden crimson apples, which are between the size of a quarter and fifty cent piece. Had about 3 of those and then had kiwi for supper. And water throughout the day.

After being sick Jan 1, I did not want to tolerate any more juice, especially since my stomach was a little iffy. So, oh well. Also had 2 bites of dark chocolate. Didn’t do it for the sugar, otherwise, I would have done milk chocolate. Was looking for a short dose of caffeine, but it didn’t help.

I’ve decided to eat fruits and veggies until my belly and head are better or at least the head. After I get over the caffeine withdrawal, I’ll try the juice fasting again.

Day 3 – Jan 3 (One setback)

I’m not just going to start the whole thing over. I’ll continue along this journey and just add whatever days to my plan that I need to reach my 30 day goal and weight/size goals.

Today, the headache traveled to my neck and jaws and I couldn’t take it anymore, so I took some aspirin and POOF! That headache was gone. Eating apples and kiwi settled my stomach so I’m feeling no pain. Just a little tired since my diet is still completely different than what it was.

I plan to continue eating fruits and veggies until either Friday or Saturday and then attempt to begin the juice fast again. I figure if I’ve transitioned to just eating fruits and veggies first, once that caffeine is out of my system, I’m good to start up again and if I feel icky, I have the weekend to lay in bed in agony. But it’s downright impossible to work when your head is pounding and you’re on the verge of upchucking.

We’ll see how I feel in the morning and go from there…

This #juicefasting thing is not as easy as you may think. Especially if you don’t get yourself a week or two of transitioning off of coffee and onto only raw fruits and veggies.

On the upside, I’ve lost 4 lbs since Jan 1.

Hope y’all are doing better with the raw stuff and juicing.

  1. The headache is probably from withdrawal. When fasting it is always best to be able to stay home because you can feel a bit ill sometimes. Hope tomorrow is a better day.

  2. Headaches and nausea are just some of the side effects of juice fast. I encourage you to take time to rest.
    As for me, I felt a bit dizzy and since my job requires some kind of physical strength, I am slowing down on the juice by eating some solid food.

Drop me a line, Sunshine!
