080: it’s all a fog

I wanted to do something which represented how I feel today.  The desaturation is a bit messy, but with the first full day of my fast coming to a close, I’m having a bit of trouble with my concentration and my vision.  Seriously, life is a little blurry right now.  Feeling good, though!  I have a few of the ‘usual’ suspects of a fast: lightheadedness, chilled, lack of concentration, and stomach cramps.  Mostly though, I’m just incredibly dehydrated, which is crazy, because I’ve had two litres of water today, and 5 16-20oz juices.  Oh, and two herbal teas.

So I present to you, my blurry life:

079: garden of eatin’

(See what I did there?)

Tomorrow marks the first day of my juice fast, so I’m trying to get into the habit of chopping up my veggies the night before to save myself two hours every morning.  From left to right, all of this bountiful food is my Lunch, Midmorning Snack, and Breakfast.  That’s right.  Three giant bowls of fruits and veggies, and…that’ll only take me until lunch.  The middle bowl has an entire cucumber in it!

If you think this is bad, you should see my fridge.  I eat a lot of fruits and veggies, but it’s never got this much in it!  The tentative plan is to juice for three days, and if I don’t feel like dying, juice for seven, then ten, then fourteen, then…well, we’ll see.  I plan to stop in time to have Easter dinner, at the very latest.

Wish me luck! (for the first 72 hours, I’m going to need it!)

…and on an unrelated note, I spent the day getting my restricted firearms license.  I can shoot with little guns now!
