Juicing Day 1: The Hunger Games Have Begun

“Welcome! We salute your courage and your sacrifice and we wish you Happy Hunger Games!” -President Snow

Did I Just Say “Juicing”?! I did, yes.

We are juicing. That would have been “I am juicing,” but my sweet husband, upon my saying “I’m going to consume nothing but raw juice for 30 days,” came back a short while later (unprompted, I’ll add!) with “Hey, I’ll do it with you.” I’d like to think he knew what he was signing up for when he said that, but let’s be honest: Andy doesn’t read fine print.

It sounds very extreme, I know. I know, I know, I know. It is extreme. That’s kind of the point, but not in the crash-diet sense of the word. I’ll probably get into the long list of “why this” in the coming days (or maybe I won’t, I don’t know, I’m only typing here), but the gist of it is that I wish to reset and see what comes of it. Worsening allergies, a sucky immune system, and cravings and addictions to bad-for-me-foods are the primary culprits fueling this and I’ll leave it at that for now.

And now for the Day 1 rundown:
I am hungry.

That’s pretty much it.

May the odds be ever in my favor.

  1. Good luck Debbie! I have long thought about doing this, too. Though I only have the courage to think about doing it for a week. Im going to look upon you with awe for your next month, and then maybe ill take the plunge too! I suppose that means Ill need to buy a juicer.

  2. Thanks, Lynnie! I am a total juicing newbie, and a week would have probably been the right way to start. But if I only did a week, I see myself trying it, seeing the good in it, and then never doing it again. 🙂 I will be sure to keep you posted.
