Juice Feast ~ Day 4
I am waiting for my produce to come in this morning to make the rest of my juice. I had to scrounge for some veggies for my morning juice making. I'll have to go back to make more after it comes in. (I will add to my post then.) I suspect the carrot beet may be too sweet for me...if so, I plan to mix it with a little sparkling water for a little "cooler".
Collards, Spinach, Celery, apple, lime
Kale, Wheat Grass, Pea Sprouts, Cucumber, Lime, Coconut Water
Things I have learned:
1. The scale is a fickle thing! According to it, when I weighed myself for the first time this morning (before I ate anything and lightly clothed) it said that I had lost 9 pounds from 4 days ago! That seems impossible...I am guess I might have Had some heavier clothes on when I weighed myself before and it was also mid day after having drank already.. I would think that I could SEE 9# worth of difference don't you?? I am sure there are many factors in one weight to the minute...Hailey weighed herself before and after lunch and showed she weighed a little more than a pound more...weighing clothes during weighing is "bad science" I know...but I am not going to freak out about it knowing all these things are relative. :-)
2. I drink more water and less juice in the day if I don't care for the mix I made that day. I had almost 2 pints left over yesterday because I really had to "make myself" drink the one mix I made. (I think the green cabbage made it not so lovely!) Since I am doing this for such a long term it is important that I keep the nutrients coming...so I am going to make it a point to make notes about things I like and I may even pitch some juice and try a new mix if I think I would have to "force myself" to drink it. I drank some coconut water yesterday, which also makes a lovely supplement.
