My 30 Day Juice Fast Challenge - Day 5

So I have been MIA for awhile on this blog and was just really trying to figure out what was the best way to go about losing weight...I have tried just about everything, I feel anyway....

**Quick Update**

I was living in New Jersey last year, and my husband recently had a job change and we moved to South Carolina, living the beach life is wonderful!!  We almost immediately joined the gym here and Love it.  I even signed up with a personal trainer.  I felt great, was really starting to gain some muscle and I was tightening up a bit too.  Sounds great right, no....I was still maintaining my weight at about 185.   Not happy about that.  I know muscle weighs more than fat but I wanted to see the scale drop.  I was fitting into my size 12 pants (not quite the super skinny pants because my thigh muscles were still to big.)  So I couldn't complain a whole lot but I really wanted to see that nu,mber drop.

Which leads me to today.  I started a Juice Fast, after watching the documentary "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead", on December 30, 2011 and am now 5 days in.  This is my log of events that led to today.  A 30 Day Juice Fast sounds easy right??

Day 5 in my 30 day juice fast.....Started at 189.7 lbs and am now at 182.2 lbs, I am down 7.5 lbs, can really see where I am losing the weight and I had a persistent headache for about two days, on the third day I gave in and drank a protein shake.  It relieved my headache almost instantly.  I have been working out burning around 300-500 calories each day as well.  Still trying to maintain a 1200-1500 calorie juice intake.  Last Night I crashed, I was so irritable after lunch yesterday until I closed my eyes.  I caved and ate a Chicken Patty for dinner with two slices of bread (absolutely disgusting) but went with my F U to this diet mood......anyway, today is another day and I am not giving up....woke up and juiced my breakfast going to the gym soon, and hopefully today will be better.  Not eating is alot harder than I thought. 

So today is another day Wish Me Luck!!
