Marti's Day 2 on the Juice...

So far I think I'm doing pretty well. I just did a shot (cup) of pineapple juice, which is a good liver cleanser. Delicious!

I feel pretty good, and I've noticed I can breathe really well through my nose; not that I had a problem before, or thought that I had a problem, but if feels really clear and open.

Yesterday, my Day 1, I had a couple of headaches off and on throughout the day, but nothing serious. Today, feeling pretty good, but a little dizzy at times, and I feel chilled off and on.

I also have a feeling of clarity, like the brain fog is lifting. I was actually able to focus on work today, and I haven't been able to really do that for a while.

I was talking with Kendra earlier today, and I think that since I stopped eating meat, dairy and eggs in April, it may be going a little easier than I expected so far, but I don't want to get ahead of myself. We'll see how it goes the next few days.

There have been a couple of times today when I had to get to the bathroom quickly, and stuff is coming out, and my stomach is making a lot of noise. I'm taking these as good signs that it's working the way it should.

I feel like I'm cleansing and/or detoxing from the top down - from my head - down my arms, etc.. I don't know if it's true, it's just how it feels for me.

I love doing the juices, and I've been thinking a lot about my new eating habits, once I'm done with the Juice Feast. I will keep juicing as a major part of my diet, and my husband Fred likes the juices better than the smoothies... so we will continue to do both.

OK, the bathroom is calling. TTYL!

  1. Way to go Marti! Hope you stay feeling good. Surely you'll have some detox reactions, but that doesn't mean that it'll knock you down. For the longest time (and even this very moment) my major detox symptom is the backs of my arms are broken out..
    I'm happy that you have such mental clarity, it's nice, eh. Such a peace of mind. I typically have racing thoughts and that is gone for the most part (I mean if there is 72 things going on around me..I do react:)
    I'm wondering..which juice do you and Fred like the best so far?
