21 Day Fast: Day 21

The last day of the fast was certainly one of the hardest.  I spent most of the day working, so that kept me occupied.  I don't know how people do fasts when they're taking time off.  Personally, I need something to keep me busy and preoccupied.

Going to a potluck certainly didn't help.  There was a lot of great food, but I tried to keep focused on the great company.  Kale University's launch party was amazing.  I sipped my green juice and discussed this great project with some of the 50 or so people that showed up for the party.  At 7 pm, the founders of the university launched the website and discussed the passion, purpose and potential of the project.  What a great resource this is going to be.

So, today I'm eating solid food again.  I started off with an orange and a grapefruit.  Later today, I'm going to the store to pick up some greens for a salad tomorrow.  I'll likely stick with fruit today, but will break the fruit fast tomorrow with a nice salad.  I usually eat an avocado by me second day, which is quite heavy, so I think I'll wait until Tuesday.  I really want to give myself a chance to ease into eating solid again.  Thank you for following me on this healthy journey.  Be healthy!

  1. So proud of you! What a great thing you're doing for yourself! Not just in improving your health, but in training your discipline. There are so many sweet temptations in this world that are unhealthy, yet wonderful at the same time, it's a struggle to be committed. I also have to make a firm committment to my health, and simply not stray one iota. For you and me, being the extremists that we are, balance is more challenging, but even more important to obtain. I may not be able to do juice fasts, but i will commit to juicing every day, even if it means going to Jamba juice to do it! Love you!
