I mentioned in my last post that I was attempting a 15 day juice fast. I am now on day 3 and so far so good. I haven’t felt hungry at all, but I do miss solid food. I smell something cooking, or see something in the fridge, and I feel like I’m missing out. Overall I’m enjoying the experience, and I just feel better for doing it. I’m not going to bother weighing myself until the fast is complete. It would be nice to lose a few kilograms, but this is not my motive this time.
Feeling Moody on Day 2 of My Juice Fast
I did feel a bit moody yesterday evening. I was expecting this, so it wasn’t such a big deal. I just went to bed a bit early. It is much easier for me to deal with a bad mood when I know that it is just my body adjusting to the diet. The fact that I was able to observe the emotion objectively is further evidence (not that I need it), that I do not have to be a slave to my emotions. During the last juice fast my mood took a nosedive on the fifth day, so I’ll have to wait to see if this repeats. I’ll be prepared for it if it does.
