I’m so glad it’s OVER!  But at the same time I’m excited about January 7th and forward.  It will be much easier next time as I will eat veggies while juicing.  Psychologically, alone eating something will make it so much better.  Drumroll please….NOW FOR THE GRAND TOTALS.  I lost 15 pounds and my friend “Diedra” lost 12 pounds.  Not bad for ten days with no exercise.  When doing the “50/50 Life Juice” starting January 7th we will be adding in some kind of body movement with the juicing.  2013 may finally prove to be the year that we lose weight and keep it off.  I have to say, doing this with a “juice buddy,” a partner doing the exact same program concurrently, made it easier, more enjoyable and actually more educational.  We were able to compare notes on a daily basis.  We noticed some of the exact same symptoms.  At least we knew we weren’t crazy!  In any case this has been an overwhelmingly successful experiment.  The success has me for one, excited about this next year.

Now that the 10-Day’s are finished it’s time to start baking those wonderful Christmas treats.  I’m breaking out the big guns to bake in this year!

Until tomorrow…

Yesterday I was very hungry.  But even still, I wasn’t STARVING like on 99% of other diets.  I’m going to the grocery store today to get some Kale.  I’m thinking I wasn’t hungry when drinking Kale juice so keep your fingers crossed!  today is a beautiful day here in the mountains.  I would love to get out and take some pics but first I must go to the store and get some greens and fruits.

I’m completing my 7th full-day  of eating nothing and only juicing.  I can NOT believe it even possible.  In fact, this is the ONLY diet I’ve EVER been on where I wasn’t STARVING!  I HIGHLY recommend it!

If you open your double door refrigerator and this is what you see either Bugs Bunny has moved in OR you’re on a juice fast!

Until tomorrow…

It’s the morning of my 4th Day of a ten-day juice fast.  There are so many feelings and thoughts running through my body and my head.  When my eyes opened this morning the very first thing I noticed was my mind was razor sharp and crystal clear.  This is unlike 99% of my mornings when I wake up and my mind is completely in a hazy fog.  Also, for the second time in 4 days I woke up sleeping on my stomach.  This is bazaar as I always sleep on my side due to pain in my back.  I noted it the first day but just thought it was a fluke.  However today when I woke up like that and I wasn’t struggling to breath I definitely knew something was different.  It will be quite interesting to see where the next 6 days takes me.

I did learn one-thing yesterday.  I learned NOT to use a beet without first peeling it.  I’m told the skins can be toxic.  I also learned if a juice tastes horrible just throw it out and start over.  I made the mistake of making myself drinking all of the juice and it was about an hour and a half of cold sweats and willing myself not to throw up.  The good news is at least I ingested the healthy juice.

As I type this blog it’s after 11 in the evening.  The only real hunger I had today was when I was at the movies.  The popcorn smelled heavenly.  Other than that, the hunger has been SURPRISINGLY manageable.  I’m beginning to think I’m not going to get sick from my body detoxing.  That would be wonderful.

So as mentioned in the title and in the previous paragraph I did go to the movies today.  I went to see  “Rise of the Guardians.”  While it seemed to be an OK movie the experience today was very unusual.  I arrived early, strange for me.  Went in and there was a father with his two sons sitting where I normally sit.  So I walked about halfway up and took a seat in the center of an aisle.  Then the father was joined by his mother-in-law, wife and another child.  They were talking all through the previews and I thought OK here we go.  Surprisingly when the movie started they piped down.  Shortly after that a mother came in carrying a baby and three very young sons in tow.  Bear in mind the entire theater is empty except for the one family and me.  She comes all the way up and takes the seats DIRECTLY in front of me.  At first the boys were relatively quiet.  But then when their baby sister started acting up I guess they thought it was OK for them to do the same.  So after fighting myself and trying to stay in my seat and ignore the interruptions I finally gave up and moved up to the second from the last row.  A few minutes later the mother got up with here infant and left the theater.  PLEASE REALIZE that the three boys left behind ranged in age from 2 to 6.  Their mother wasn’t gone more than 5 minutes before the two youngest jumped up and started running in the aisles and up the stairs.  All this running while the theater was almost pitch black.  I had an anxiety attack so I got up and left.  I told the Manager on the way out that a mother had left her three sons alone in the theater and what the kids were doing.  We turned around and her came the two-year-old through the lobby “mommy, mommy, mommy?!?”  I then left to go to my truck.  As I walked out, there was the mother in a mini-van, on her cell phone, smoking a cigarette, with the infant in her car seat!!!  It’s 2012, don’t parents know that exposing their babies to cigarette smoke can cause Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)????

Since I came home early I started a bonfire and burned a bunch of leaves.

Until tomorrow…

Attention!! If you have a Powerball Ticket dated BEFORE November 27th check your numbers!  If they match the following numbers you have just won a trip to The Ellen DeGeneres Show 12 Days of Giveaways (Christmas Shows)!!!  Check those tickets!  And your winning numbers are: 18 24 26 40 55 PB 29.

I think I’ve found the fountain of youth!  I’ve been juicing vegetables with a few fruits.  I swear to you this must be what it feels like to do cocaine.  I drink the juice and I feel it spread throughout my entire body.  I hope it gives me a little relief from the pain of Fibromyalgia and perhaps a little energy to counteract the malaise associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Until tomorrow…

Well, since the question of the day is what is the outcome of Dolly’s CT Scan (I appreciate everyone asking), we got an all clear.  No additional cancer growth so it was very GOOD NEWS INDEED.  I on the other hand not feeling well.  Besides the brand new hernia just below my belly button something is really not right with me.  I’ll have to go to the doctor and see what’s going on.  Will let you know.

In the meantime I am now ready for the coming zombie apocalypse.  I have the required ammunition in storage and plenty of weapons.  I finally got my head removing knife and am practicing for the quick removal of said appendage.

You know your dog is spoiled when she times her afternoon nap around the sun shining upon her.  She has no idea what’s ahead with the zombie’s.  I hope she’s ready!

Until tomorrow…

I’m not sure if yesterday was a blur to the whole planet or just me.  I had to take my Mom to the Oncologist so maybe that was it.  Anyway, her blood work is drawn and the CT scan scheduled for Wednesday.  Keeping our fingers crossed that the Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma is still in remission.  Other than that the day was a total blur.  I don’t know how I got there or back but we did it.  Fell asleep at six last night and just woke up now at 10:15 the next morning.  The moral to the story, when you combine stress, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue into one cocktail be very careful while operating heavy machinery or a toothbrush for that matter.

Until tomorrow…
