I'm really stoked to be here on Day 21! Tomorrow will be the longest I've ever fasted! I'm very proud of myself for getting this far and look forward to getting another week behind me! I'm also proud of the and the other feasters out there! THIS IS NOT EASY!
I feel like I'm just about acclimated to pacific time. I went to bed at 9pm on Friday night and slept until 7am the next morning. Ahhh.....blessed sleep! Yes it was wonderful to get some awesome rest. I felt so good, I got my butt back to the gym and worked my chest, bis, abs, and lower back. I was planning on going to yoga as well, but I got a pretty decent workout and decided against it! I'm glad I made that decision as I was quite tired last night by 9pm and could barely keep my eyes open.
Saturday weigh in: 177lbs (Very cool! 4lbs in seven days.)
I need to post a photo of myself just before I started this fast. You can see these two pronounced fat pockets just below my rib cage! They totally piss me off and are a huge motivation for me to stay on this fast until they are GONE--NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN!! Oh yeah, they will not be back! I will have that six pack I've always wanted! Yes, I admit it; I'm just slightly vain! Here's the photo:
This was actually taken on Day 2 of my fast, 1/2/08. Oh yeah! I'm sucking it in here. I'd have a nice little pot belly if I wasn't. I think I took a side pro of me back in November I'll have to search for and post. It's awful! And it's my motivation to stay thinner! I think I'm close to 194lbs here and yesterday I was 177lbs! I know I may have been closer to 196 or something, but didn't want weigh myself and get any more discouraged/disappointed with my weight than I already was! I know it's weird! Some men have the same issues as women when it comes to our weight! Anywho....
I got another solid 9 hours of sleep last night. I got on the stair master straight away and had a great sweat. It's a great way to start my day. I can feel I'm getting stronger and more in shape. Since I've started back on the stair master I've been on a level 1 (customized) and feel like I'm ready to increase the intensity a bit.
I have to give respectable shout out to David and Katrina Rainoshek juicefeasting.com! I was blown away with the data they have compiled as part of their juice feasting program! Very very cool! I have a few of the books they have referenced and posted for download on their site, but it's awesome the way it's format and compiled in one place! Bravo! I was hesitant to take the plunge and purchase the 92 day program, but I my curiosity got the best of me! I think it's well worth the money.
