I forgot to mention my walk at the end of Day 3. It was super hilly and I didn't think I'd have the energy but I held up and had a good time. My goal is to continue to walk while feasting. I'm just avoiding high intensity activity.
Yesterday was a good day in that I spent most of it holed up in my office working on projects AND away from food. It was just me, the 'puter and my green smoothies.
While they're all the same colour, they contain different goodness. Here's the rundown:
1. Spinach, romaine, ginger, peaches, grapes - This was okay but I will not grapes again until I have a high powered blender. That texture was too much for me.
2. Spinach, ginger, lime and pineapple - SUPER DELICIOUS! This one's a keeper :)
3. Spinach, mint, banana, mango, figs - the mint gave an overall earthy taste (my husband's words) to the smoothie. I wouldn't make this one again but it's all good as it's a learning process.
The cleansing reactions subsided as the day went on and my energy levels continue to increase. I haven't felt any fogginess and with the week at work I've had, I've needed to maintain clarity of mind.
One of my co-workers took the plunge and started her 10 day green smoothie feast yesterday! She doesn't usually eat breakfast or dinner so having to increase her intake during the day even with just smoothies is going to be a challenge. I'm excited for her and look forward to helping her through to the end of the journey!
I'm just ending Day 5 and it wasn't great. I'll share that story tomorrow.
