Then on Saturday, Jack and I began a juice fast. Today is day three and I'm feeling refreshed and ready to meet the day. Last night was a doozy, however, because I was wanting to eat and feeling a little weak. It turns out I needed a little more juice and some water. So after re-hydrating, I felt better. (Fasting tip - keep yourself hydrated!)

The "I Did It" List
I stayed focused on my eating plan
I allowed for splurges when appropriate
I began a juice fast, which I've been wanting to try
As per reader request, here is the juice recipe:
head of Romaine
two-three leaves of Kale
one lemon with peel
1-2 apples (cored)
4-5 whole celery sticks
small bit of ginger to taste
I juice these items in this order through my juicer, stir and drink!
Sometimes I'll add carrots or green grapes to this mix for sweetness and variety.
