Day 5 of my 10-Day Juice Fast was the hardest for me so far. I had a ton of running around to do during the day, I started working on getting my taxes together to meet with the accountant next month and then I had to shuttle my boys back & forth to basketball practice at night. I “fell off the wagon” in 3 ways:
- I mismanaged my time and found myself at Wegmans at lunchtime and REALLY needing something in my stomach, so I ended up grabbing a Bolthouse Green Goodness juice. While it is much better than all of the yummy alternatives to be found at Wegmans, it still wasn’t ideal.
- Since the kids had basketball practice, I grabbed a take & bake whole wheat pizza while I was at Wegmans and I ended up eating a half a slice (1/16 of the pizza). Sidenote: we buy “Take & Bakes” all the time, but this was the first one that I bought from Wegmans…NOT a fan of their pizza!
- After reconciling 6 months of bank statements, I wanted a glass of wine – I had 2!
So am I upset that I “fell off the wagon”? A little. Am I going to beat myself up over it? Not a chance! The way I see it, even with my slip-ups, I STILL got more fruits & veggies in my body than I did the same day last week. I’m back on track this morning and that is the important thing! And besides – I got on the scale this morning and I am down 7 pounds!
So here is what I drank on Day 5:
7 carrots, small piece of ginger
Bolthouse Green Goodness (store-bought)
I went with a classic – the Mean Green! 6 kale leaves, 4 stalks of celery, 2 Granny Smith apples, 1 cucumber, 1/2 lemon, piece of ginger.
I will be sharing with you my thoughts and what I drank during my my 10 Day Juice Fast and I hope that you find this info helpful!
