Day 28: One Month Juice Feast Anniversary
So Sunday is my one month juice feast anniversary. It's been a lot easier than I thought it would be although I've traveled out of state, worked, added in high intensity interval sprint work and P90X weight training. This last week has been tough because it's the usual tough week of my months: the time before my monthly. BUT, I have to say it's a heck of a lot easier than normal. This is why I am doing this: to make these one week (12 out of the year) easier. I've made great progress thus far and am totally CONFIDENT I will achieve my goals.
I was really hungry yesterday which is normal during PMS. I am learning how much my hormonal fluctuations affect my hunger levels and to honor that even when I go back to eating. Clearly, my body is calling for more nutrition during this time.
I have "only" lost 5 lbs so far which is great. When I have water/juice fasted before for only 22 days I had lost 25lbs...far more and I believe a lot of that was muscle.
That's what's been cool about this juice feast. I am actually gaining muscle and yet people think I am getting "too skinny" because my body fat percentage is shrinking and so is my size. When I was done with my water fasts, I was "skinny fat". Not so this time.
I am very pleased with the results I've gotten so far and looking forward to the next two months. I am a 1/3 of the way there!!!
Don't forget to turn your clocks forward. :)
