There is a space between what we say and what we think, and that gap is never fully realized. But we can continue to try to connect the points, and eventually maybe we can get somewhere.

Day Three?

So I've reached the end of my 3rd day. Between the two of us we've spent $140, and that will get us through tomorrow, which is pretty good considering most juice fasts are $20-$25 per day. We're right on point.

A few things I forgot to mention yesterday- on the first day Jon and I both had a hard time going to sleep because our bodies were so restless. My legs felt twitchy, and it was hard to get my mind off of them. The first two days I felt weak when I walked around, but today I took a walk with my friend during lunch, and I felt great. Jon felt fine the first day, but yesterday and today he was really cranky. He says he feels really weak, and he's on the verge of quitting already. He's going to continue through tomorrow, but 5 days might be his limit.

This makes me sad, but I don't want to push him to do anything he doesn't want to do. This is his second over night shift, and I can't help but feel that his job is making this that much harder for him. I have a feeling my hunger will break tomorrow, but I don't know if his will unless he gets passed the 5th day. I hope he sleeps all day tomorrow and only wakes up to drink juice. I think that will help. It's a big difference between us- his 9hr retail job and my 9hr home job are both very different, not to mention I'm very happy doing what I do.

But you know how I think he'll get through this? Because when he was resting today, he was fine. He wasn't cranky, and he was himself. It was only when he came home from work this morning, and before he left for work this evening.

But we'll see I guess.

This was the menu of today:

1/2 Watermelon
2 Cucumbers
1 Peeled Lemon

1 Green Apple
2 cups Spinach
2 cups / 6-8 leaves Kale
1/2 Cucumber
4 Celery Stalks
1/2 Lemon

2 broccoli stalks
1/2 head or 2 wedges green cabbage
2 cups or 6-8 leaves of kale
1 organic granny smith apple
1/4 lemon (peeled)
1 inch ginger root

1 big bunch parsley (approx. 4 cups)
1 tomato
1/4 red onion
1/2-1 lemon (peeled)
1/2 cucumber
Dash sea salt and black pepper

1/2 cup Radish (about 6)
6 cups green grapes
1/2 bunch watercress
1 Cucumber
1 knob ginger

The savory ones are my favorite, like the Tabbouleh today. Deliciousssssss :)
