This was how my last day of the detox went. Today I woke up and continued my routine of having a smoothie and some tea. I got myself ready and with a full stomach I safely went grocery shopping with no fear over 'overbuying'. I biked back with my groceries and made another smoothie whilst getting some stuff done at home. I had plans to meet a friend later so when the time came, I made a massive juice with celery, carrot, ginger and apple which I drank before leaving.
Whilst out and about me and my friend walked miles and miles exploring the city and I had one berry smoothie at the beginning and one mango/strawberry towards the end before going home. Today I didn't hardly drink enough water or herbal tea like I should have so I felt quite weak at some points and light headed. The good thing about this city is there are so many places to grab juices at any time of day so I sorted that out and I felt a million times better. I regretted not taking my water bottle out with me. Anyway I was so tempted to have a beer or some food, especially walking around gastown but it would have been a terrible idea and so I didn't. I headed home later on and went to bed, excited for breakfast time. I planned to have a small breakfast as to not overwhelm my body, so some eggs, rye bread and avocado.
It's Day 8 and you know what that means! The juice fast is over and I actually made it a whole week I can't believe it!
It's all in the mind and anyone can do it if you believe you can, just like anything else!
Moral of the story- never ever take food for granted, enjoy and savour every taste and smell and eat consciously not just to fill your stomach, but to be aware of the story behind food and what it went through to get to your plate. So thankful 😍
