To be honest my personal world is kind of falling around me. We have to leave our home (we won't be homeless), I am unemployed, I have no clear direction in life...the list could go on, but why dwell?
It's really no big deal (honest) and I don't want to place more energy on the situations than I have to.
Really and truly.
I don't know if it's the euphoria of the juice feast or me creating all those raw food recipes that I'm loving so much or what, but I remain unfazed by it all.
I am loving life and smiling and laughing and being funny and sarcastic and having a great time.
I don't care about my crumbling life. I have a feeling in my gut that everything will work out just fine.
Life is very, very good. So there.
Check out what happened last juice feast on Day 20.

I had a good run on the treadmill this morning, spent some time with the husband and our youngest daughter, prepared a few raw recipes and had juicy green juices flowing through my body.
This juice feast is kind of boring in comparison to the '07-08 one. I'm not thinking about the process so much, that could have something to do with it.
There is a fair amount of comfort present, and I'm going to "juice" it for all it's worth.
There are some major differences this time around.
I'm not really keeping track of the juices I'm drinking, I'm just make them (in batches 1/2-one gallon) and consume them, like I would any meal.
Most days I drink 1/2 gallon to a gallon of green juices a day. I am also using a juicer instead of a
blender. Although, my husband still uses the blender.
I've up the ante on my produce. I juice 3 pounds of greens, 1 head of celery and 3-4 cucumbers of cucumber every, single day. There are various additions (radishes, carrot, apples, herbs, garlic, etc.) But my base is and will always be greens, celery and cucumbers.
Day 13 of Juice Feasting: 2007-2008
Saturday, January 9, 2010
This juice feast I'm going to try to focus on the aspects that caused me to gain the weight back (and more.) Why would I spend three months of my life (and my family's lives) getting healthy only to piss it away? That's insane.
There's no excuse.
There won't be lists of what I consumed, how much I weigh, etc, there might be pictures (they are always fun to see progress) and there will be words (I have lots to say). I have a tendency to censor myself, I will move away from that behavior.
I should say what I feel, right? I think we all should.
