2012-05-01 juicing day 2 of 10

still working on getting the blog all in order. kept all my old stuff. just changed the title, address, and the look a little.

current fad: juicing! (a la fat, sick, and nearly dead movie) (i watched it on netflix)

mission: to only drink juice from organic fruits and veggies for 10 days.

starting weight (yesterday): 137.4

day 2 weight: 134.8

i am on day 2 of a 10 day juice feast =) this morning i juiced a head of romaine lettuce, lemon, 5 stalks of celery, 4 carrots, orange, apple, ginger, pineapple, and cucumber. it's actually pretty good. it taste mostly like orange juice with a lettuce after taste.

i can't really tell you if there are any "pros" yet. i guess i do feel a bit more focused? maybe...

cons or possible weird side affects: my tummy feels funny. i wouldn't describe it as hurting. maybe bloated? it gurgles a lot. i was super crabby by the end of the day yesterday. but feel much better today. i was super tired yesterday as well. at 6pm i was looking for ways to go to sleep for the night. (we all know that didn't happen. not with kiddos!) however, i woke up this morning feeling much better. although, the roof of my mouth is swollen on the left side. odd. i need to run. but i'm scared to run. i am worried that i won't have the energy. i've been told that around day 5 of the juice feast, i will get a burst of energy that will be awesome. i'm waiting.....
