2012-05-03 juicing day 4 of 10

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 4/30/12: 137.4

day 3 weight: 132.8

fruits and veggies cost: $70.72
IF all the fruits and veggies were gone from being eaten (which they are not) that amount would come out to be about $17.68 dollars a day or $5.89-ish a meal based on 3 meals a day.  however, i have plenty of fruits and veggies for tomorrow and saturday and probably sunday as well.  so the daily average amount spent will go down drastically.

pros i've lost 4.6 lbs!  i've done 4 days of juicing and i'm not dead yet.  raw mouth is almost gone so, i'm counting that as a pro.  energy seems to be coming back.  i rant 3 miles this morning.  albeit slow.  oh yes, and,  i drank 5 juices today!!

cons:  at dinner time each night i have seemed to go completely insane for food.  the food cravings are taking over.  also, i'm not for sure that the stress of fighting the cravings is worth all of this.  

juice 1:  (2 apples, 1 pear, ginger) taste like apple juice

juice 2:  
 (strawberries, blueberries, banana, and almond milk )  

juice 3:  (tomato, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, cuke, celery) I thought it would taste like salsa. But it didn't. Oh well! Down the hatch anyways 

juice 4:  (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, banana, 4 leaves of kale, almond milk, 1/2 orange, tbsp almond butter) SO GOOD

juice 5:  (5 carrots, 2 stalks of celery, ginger) very creamy.  

uh, well, not much has changed. i did good this morning and afternoon.  it was this evening that i had a mini-breakdown.  this seems to be a trend.  i guess i am used to having my big meal in the evening and i really want to eat.   i am finishing this out.  but i'm not happy.  when will the i've-got-energy-i-want-to-do-this-for-30-days-instead-of-just-10 come? i keep thinking, there are plenty of people that lose weight by doing WW or just watching their portions and eating healthier.  what am i doing???!!!  i'm torturing myself.  i really am.  will this be worth it in 10 days?  i don't know?
