WIP Wednesday #6


 

Today you find me in a mixed mood after having a lot of ups and downs this week. On the upside, I fixed my own toilet and finally got my wedding ring off after separating from my husband in January. I spent a lovely day yesterday with some lovely friends in their new home, being pampered with coffees, lunch, and dinner. No cooking for me at all yesterday. Today I’ve sold a rabbit run that was surplus to requirements, so hopefully I’ll be able to get my hair cut this weekend. I also got around to mowing the back lawn! On the downside, there is something wrong with my car (again), the hot tap in my bathroom has seized up, and my boiler needs fixing. Ho hum!

This afternoon I shall be chilling with my Betty Mouat sweater, while watching the finale of Falling Skies, after spending a lazy time in the garden and wasting too much time on facebook!

Juice Fast–Day 5


So I managed to survive this far. It’s been touch-and-go on a few occasions though. I feel crappy. Days 2 and 3 were ok, although I was ludicrously hungry on both days with a severe headache. I have had to eat a light supper every night. On day 2 I had some plain rice, curried rice and prawns. Day 3 was my daughters birthday and I had a small portion of fish and chips in the pub. Yesterday (day 4) and today have been horrible. I am no longer hungry, I just have a constant gnawing pain in the pit of my stomach. I’m tired, nauseous, confused and tearful. I feel spaced out and slightly dizzy. Up until yesterday I had also not lost any weight, although I did lose an inch from my hips and waist. This morning I appear to have lost a pound. I am meant to be carrying on for another 11 days, juicing 4 times a day and eating two meals, but frankly if I see another glass of juice I shall probably vomit or cry, or both. It really isn’t worth it, I would rather be slightly overweight than be this hungry again.
