In review, I’m fasting with fresh fruit and vegetable juices made in my own juicer for 15 days. I will be adding some nuts, rolled oats and solid vegetables once a day but mainly subsisting on micronutrients. It’s called a reboot and the whole experience will be documented here.
Last night I slept soundly and felt very relaxed when I awoke this morning. That hasn’t happened in at least 18 months since I was nursing my dad before his death. This stage in life is full of new experiences just like all of the other stages. Instead of working on intimacy or competency, I’m learning to let go of the people I love while my hormones are receding. So, after last night I’m realizing how much my sleep pattern has been affected.
Today I feel great and I’m still enjoying the juices plus I’ve come up with a veggie burger from mushrooms that I’m going to try this evening. I’ll let you know whether the recipe is worthy of repeating. The hunger for other foods beyond juice is gone and even the temptation to eat what I’m fixing for my family. It’s such a great feeling to know that I’m going to accomplish this 15 day fast. 🙂
