Toughing it Out

I have another post I started, but it's going to have to wait...this is day 4 of a 5 day juice fast/cleanse, and all I can think about right now is juice. Juice, juice, juice, juice, juice and what I'm going to eat on Saturday morning when this is over. I'm in a bit of a funk...I don't feeling like drinking any of the 4 different juices I have made. To make matters worse, I'm watching Top Chef and grilling some chicken for HS. Why don't I just make a Costco run while I'm at it...if I really want to torture myself.

Days 1 and 2 were the toughest...I was having strong cravings and questioning why I was doing the cleanse. (CIM race weight, dummy!) Yesterday and earlier today were better, but as I get closer to the end, I start thinking about  quitting. What will it hurt if I stop one day early?

I have done numerous juice fasts including a 7 day juice cleanse. I know I can do it, and I know I will have great results if I stick with it. I am hoping that tomorrow morning, when I get on the scale, I will see a number that will boost my resolve and get me through the last day.
