Day 8 This is it, weigh in day. I’ve already decided to carry on the …
I get up and my stomach is growling, I go to the gym and my stomach is growling. But for some reason, whether it be because of the juices or because of this October Detox month, I have the run of my life – once again, smashing my personal best 11K in just under 70 minutes. But yes, my stomach is still growling. The only thing to look forward too today, is once again, a different smoothie. A Super Detox juice, which because of the “power greens” is very powdery, it tastes fine, just the consistency is quite weird. Also in a weird move, I have to buy a toothbrush and toothpaste. Whether its because of the vapour or the juices, my teeth always seem to have a “fuzz” on them, which I just had to brush off, so now added to my routine is brushing my teeth half an hour after drinking a juice. I’m also drinking a lot more water, pretty much a pint straight after every juice.
I’m still not hungry as such, but I feel a little dazed, maybe its from too much sleep or just the lack of food in my stomach, we’ll see as the week progresses. But at least I’m half way through now! I don’t feel any skinner, and usually people talk about their stomach feeling flatter, but in all honesty, I don’t see it. Maybe its just my own self confidence, but I actually feel more bloated than usual. But maybe that will be different once this is over and I weigh myself again
Once again wake up to a grumbly tummy, but it is so bad today. I got through the day just feeling those hunger pangs worse than usual, but I solider through, even though I am really snappy with people. Gym isn’t good today, because I’ve been pushing myself the past couple of days, my legs are sore, so I just walk/run, mainly walk, at a fast pace, but get a decent enough sweat on. The rest of the day is pretty much a haze, its not good, not bad, occasional dizzy spell. The evening gym session is better but not long enough because I have other plans. Only two more days to go, but they will probably harder because I wont have work to keep me grounded.
