Day 93 of Terilynn's Juice Feast

I'm still fighting the cold that the children have gifted me with so I will keep this post short.

On Today's Menu:
1 quart lemon water
2 quarts kale/celery/carrot
1 quart orange

I slept all day yesterday. My husband said congrats to me for going 92 days on juices. I looked at him, said thanks and went back to sleep. True it's a big accomplishment but at the time sleep was all I wanted. Which is why the juice (particularly green) on yesterday's menu was sparse. It was strange for the first time during this process my body was exhausted.
My theory to behind why I got the cold is that for the past few weeks I was working out twice per day and not consistently increasing my juices. I needed those extra calories to compensate for the extra workout. I believe I just pushed myself a bit too far. Live and learn, I won't be doing that again.

On March 1's Menu:
1 quart pear/grape juice
2 quarts orange
lots of water


I want to wish all good luck and happy juicing to everyone out there who have started the Global Juice Feast. You are in for quite a ride. Have fun and listen to your body, remember it knows best!

Way to go Teri! You are a total rockstar!

I think that a virus is a virus is a virus, and when we breathe one in and it starts to replicate, our body goes into action. Even the healthiest person on the planet is still going to have to face this from time to time. Please don't be hard on yourself for being down for a few days, even after all this juice feasting!

Congrats!! :) I can't believe you're extending your juice feast... You're such a strong and motivated person!

I've thought about whether I would do this and I'm not sure... maybe only of my psoriasis hasn't healed completely... but I really want a salad! :P hehehe

You're a great inspiration! Sending you lots of healing vibes! :)
