The Juice Fast Day 2

Well it was a busy day starting with the 8.30 appt with the endocrinologist (who says this diet is ok)

I had a terrible headache again for most of the day and as days go it was a bit worse than usual (unless the usual standard needs to readjusted downwards...again...)

Edna Everage Day DAY 2
Constant Pain Constant dull aches Quite high level of constant pain and continuing headache
Pain Rating 5 6
Stabbing or Shooting Pain Intermittent but many times a day – hips, knees, shoulders, back, neck – the usual suspects Average (Regular intense pain but not constant)
Energy Like I used to feel when I had a cold or the flu. Worse than average – moving slowly – very tired/fatigued
Skin Irritation and itchiness usually when I try to relax Some strange sensations that creeping feeling – prolonged itching and burning of feet after taking off socks
Plumbing Varies Fine
Forgetfulness Intermittent Average
Depression A bit down Flat and thinking about acceptance
Anxiety Fluctuating at times high Less anxiety than average
Sleep Restless, broken, some insomnia Two blocks of a couple of hours each broken by a few hours restless in the night.
Restlessness Limited ability to be still Slightly less restless than average – but I was busy so was distracted too
Fumbling & Stumbling Drop things, bump into things, catch feet on uneven surfaces & stumble Dropped several things, my gait was rolling and a bit like I was drunk (which unfortunately I was not)
Balance & Vertigo Varied equilibrium issues with occasional vertigo Staggering but not tripping and no head spin
Hunger Not usually Kind of missed lunch so very hungry by late afternoon
Cheating N/A Had some humus and some olives with celery and some more avocado.

Sorry this is quite utilitarian as I feel kind of crappy today and I used my energy writing the 11/11/11 blog.


  1. God...looking at your 'average' day my heart goes out to you. Hope you're feeling a bit better today.

  2. Ahhh girls... I always feel better knowing you are out there!
