Day 6: Friday, March 8, 2013
Weight: 131.0lbs â€“ loss of 0.8lbs
Disappointed after all that work yesterday, I only lost 0.8lbs!! Good thing I worked out yesterday, or else I think there wouldnâ€™t have been any weight loss of all. It must have been the Lara bar that did it!
Today was my 2nd video shoot job day, so another early day to wake up. I got another wonderful 7 hours of sleep last night. I definitely could have used more; however, I found that I wasnâ€™t tired at all today, and, not only that, I felt pretty good. No headaches at all all day, although there was just a touch of a lightheaded feeling. And, in addition to that, I have barely consumed anything all day. For some reason, I was craving a Diet Coke when I got to the job this morning, so I took one from my car and drank it in about an hour. I know itâ€™s completely not a good thing to ingest when Iâ€™m trying to detox (making my body acidic), but I knew it wouldnâ€™t disrupt my calorie intake, since itâ€™s 0 calories, so I gave into my desire and took it.
For the rest of the day, I havenâ€™t been hungry and didnâ€™t even finish my green smoothie that I made for the day. (I drank 8/9 of it â€“ I measured!) I took the time, as well, to make a beautiful green juice this morning before leaving for work, and I just ended up carrying that around with me all day â€“ didnâ€™t even touch it.
My body is very weak and feels very sore (especially after standing and hunching my shoulders for hours today and yesterday during work), so I forewent my Costco trip this afternoon to instead have a last minute massage therapy session, and it was sooo worth it! So, note to self for my next juice fast: book RMT appt. in advance because I know Iâ€™m going to need it. I have muscle soreness all over â€“ probably because of my exercise all week with a really weak body (plus the standing for hours).
Iâ€™m going to get a good nightâ€™s sleep tonight, and tomorrow morning will be the final weigh in! So, there was no exercise today, but I hope that with simply my fasting, this will allow me to get to 130. Iâ€™ve been drinking SO much water today (and all week â€“ more than I usually drink, which is already a lot), so I think this will help with flushing out my system. Iâ€™ll be satisfied to get anywhere in the 130 zone for tomorrow â€“ which I failed to mention in the introductory write-up. My goal was just to see â€œ130â€ (point whatever) on the scale.
