I’ll spare you the run down on time and the juice we had, since it’s the same as yesterday with just a little time variation. You can read about that here.
Let’s talk about how I’m feeling. In a word: awesome. I slept like a baby. I woke up before my alarm this morning, about 6:30. My alarm doesn’t go off until 7:30. I chugged a glass of lemon water and followed it up with my first juice. My morning chores were done by 7, and I was showered. Never — never — happens.
I was also in a really, really good mood. And my skin looked awesome this morning. It didn’t look that good on my wedding day. I had a client meeting during juice two and was definitely focused and I felt like I was able to think more clearly. I’ve noticed that my sentences have kind of jumbled up in my head lately and that didn’t happen at all today.
I got home around 11:30 and took the dog for a mid-day walk. We hadn’t done that since the Fall, but the weather, as I might have mentioned, has been awful all winter. I probably waited a little too long for juice three, because come 2 pm, I was famished. I grabbed my Kate Bakes bar and nibbled on that along with some water. Did the trick to tide me over until juice four.
I kept waiting for the day two “crash” I’ve heard that some people experience. It never happened. I had tons of energy all day (the dog even got a second long walk and 40 minutes at the dog park). I haven’t felt the need to eat (in fact I had to talk myself into eating the bar since I felt kind of like I was cheating). I’m not saying I’m not craving a hunk of cheese like a wild mouse, but I don’t feel like I need to eat (and frankly, I’m too full to).
Last night we watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, which I highly recommend for anyone juicing or considering juicing, or skeptical of juicing. The nutritional information is well worth it — and it’s a heart warming story to boot.
I’m honestly sad tomorrow is my last day. If it wasn’t so expensive, I’d seriously consider going a week. But, a little bird told me JRINK is going to be at the Artisan Market in Clarendon on Saturday, so I’ll stop by and get my fix.
We think JRINK is pretty awesome. We’re not being compensated for this post and we paid for our juices from our very own wallets.
