Juice Fast Day 1

This is my very first juice fast. Beginning today, I will be on a 5-day fast. I am following Joe Cross’ 5-day Reboot. If you haven’t seen “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” I highly recommend you do.

Now, I am not fat, sick or nearly dead. However, I can always be a bit healthier. So, enjoy the pictures; I am currently enjoying the juices.

Finally, this is what the fridge looked like prior to beginning.

Poor boyfriend, no room for much of his food. Good thing it’s only a five-day fast!

So, I have just the purple passion left to drink tonight. I feel great, haven’t been hungry all day, which is surprising because I went to my 5:30 a.m. Jazzercise class before I started this morning. And, no trouble drinking enough water…I’ve nearly put 4 liters away today. Will update again tomorrow evening. I have the next three days off from work, perfect to be gentle with myself.

Here’s to your health! Happy Juicing.
