Juices, Supplements etc. in order of consumption
Bentonite and psyllium shake

1 quart orange, celery, romaine
3 oranges, 2 stalks celery, 1 1/2 heads romaine
Nice breakfast.
1 quart Bok Choy, celery, cucumber, blueberries
1 head bok choy, 6 stalks celery, 1 cucumber, 1 pint blueberries
OK, so I figured out what is causing my juice to separate. Finally. It is the...drumroll please...bok choy. This juice separated so fast and it got so disgusting that I couldn't even drink it. I am not sure you can see it that good in the picture but it was a clear liquid on the bottom and chunks of green on the top. Yuck. What a waste.

1 quart Romaine, Cucumber, Red Pepper, green onion, garlic, basil, hemp oil, kelp
1 1/2 heads romaine, 1 cucumber, 1/4 red pepper, 1 green onion, 1 clove garlic, handful basil
Yum. I struggle with adding more garlic because I love garlic but it becomes spicy because it's raw. I have gone as high as 2 cloves and it was a bit much. 1 1/2 is better.

1 quart Romaine, pineapple, celery, mint
1 large head romaine, 1/2 pineapple, 5 stalks celery, handful mint
Nice and light. I enjoyed it.

You can see that I had a lot of romaine today. I didn't intend for it and I didn't even realize it until I was looking over my notes. Also, I didn't have a full 4 quarts today but I was looking on the sheet to record what you eat each day and it says 3-4 quarts of juice so I had 3.

Starting 173.5
Today 163.5

Woo hoo! 10 lbs down.

8 1/2 hours

Five Tibetans
Full Day of cleaning house

I woke up feeling hung over today. I don't really understand it. I felt just awful. I was groggy, fuzzy and I had a headache. I could barely do the Five Tibetans I was so physically weak. I did my usual morning routine and felt a bit better and as time went by I felt better and better.

Positive changes
My tummy is looking smaller
My skin is sooo soft, it's luscious
I think I see my cheekbones trying to peak out from under the fat
My heartburn is so much better. It is almost gone!

Coated tongue (it looked a little lighter for a brief time today)
Had a bit of B.O today :o(
Pimples on my face which I almost never get

Emotionally/Trash Bag Tango
I had quite an emotional day today. I asked my husband to watch the Oprah show with me about the cleaning and this morning he agreed to help me clean out our master bathroom closet. I have a huge closet and it is chock-a-block with stuff. I mean tons and tons of stuff. It was quite a big project and I was doing good until we got to the back and I started pulling out my scrapbooking, memorabilia, and photographs. I have so much of it. Boxes and boxes.

I started thinking about some of the things Peter Walsh was saying on his show; "What do you want your house to feel like? Does this stuff accomplish that?" The answer was "no" but I am obviously so attached to all of it that I can't let it go. It is like a tug-of-war that was being raged inside of me and I lost it. I just started sobbing.

My hubby soothed me and reminded me that this is a process, one that can't be fixed overnight. We decided to push all of those boxes over into the corner of the room and I will go through them and weed them out tomorrow. I save too much stuff so I am going to go back and only save a few things that are truly special. I am also planning on getting some new containers to hold all the things I keep so that I am honoring them more and not just throwing them in an old beer box in and piling them in the back of my closet.

The closet is on its way. My mom helped a bit when she came over and we didn't even go out. We just cleaned. We did it all day and there is more to do tomorrow but it feels good and I know it is what we need to do.

Does a craving from an organizer and a team to help count? No? Then no cravings.

None. I am not even going to plan on meditating on the weekends. It is impossible in this house.

When I was doing my enema in the morning I was shocked and a bit disgusted at the smell of cigarettes that came into the room. I mean yuck. I used to smoke years ago. I haven't touched a cigarette in 13 years so how weird is that?

Also while doing my enema I noticed that my colon is higher up in my abdomen. It isn't where it is supposed to be but it has definitely moved up. I really can't explain it because I haven't had any huge release of matter from there but it has moved up so I will stop asking why and just be grateful. I still have my colonic scheduled for next week so I am really looking forward to getting a professional to give me some answers.

That's it for now. Think of me on Sunday cleaning, purging and probably crying. Exactly what I need!

Wow, you are really digging deep! It's great that hubby is helping. Mine is being so supportive and loving!

My tummy was very active today and I even had some cramps, as if things are coming loose! Katrina has sort of convinced me to try enemas, so I'm going to see if I can find a kit somewhere.

Good luck with your decluttering!
