Day 3

Today was the third day on strictly raw fruits, veggies, and 100% juice. I did add 2 Tbs of peanut butter for energy (I have to keep up with my gymnasts!). Here is what my day looked like today. BTW, I feel fantastic so far. I am also proud of myself.


  • 1 cup coffee
  • one banana
  • 1 cup orange juice


  • Spaghetti squash
  • 4 Tbs fresh salsa
  • one apricot

Afternoon snack:

  • 2 Tbs natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup frozen cherries (YUM!)
  • Crystal Light packet
  • multi vitamin with calcium


  • Green Smoothie: 2 cups baby spinach, 3/4 cup frozen mango, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1 cup orange juice, 1 cup water; blended

Sounds weird but it is actually SO good.

I needed caffeine mid-afternoon for a little pick me up, but other than that I feel good. I am happy with my decision. I started at 136.6 pounds on Monday I am 133.4. Yes, most of this is water weight. But what am I doing holding onto all that water anyway? Probably because my body has been dehydrated and under nourished.

I was tempted today to eat other food. I didn't though and am proud of that fact. I was just going to pop something in my mouth just out of habit, not hunger, and had to stop and throw it away. The biggest temptation was when Tre offered me his cookie because he couldn't eat the rest. If you know me well you know that cookies are my one and only. No more. Cookies will not have a hold over me. I have learned to accept slight hunger and know that it is not the end of the world. Food will not go away, there is always tomorrow, and I am not starving.

Great job, Leisa. Way to resist the temptations yesterday. I hope today is just as good for you. One day at a time...

You're totally day at a time. That is all you can focus on or else it will be way too overwhelming. Thanks for the encouragement.
