Juices, Supplements etc. in order of consumption
1 quart spinach, celery, orange
Same as always

1 quart romaine, red pepper, carrot, onion, celery, cucumber, garlic, turmeric, cayenne, hemp oil, kelp
2 heads romaine, 1/2 red pepper, 1 carrot, 1 green onion, 6 celery, 1 cucumber, 1 lg. clove garlic

1 quart celery, kale, pear, cucumber, blackberry, blueberry
5 stalks celery, 5 leaves kale, 1 pear, 1 cucumber, 6 oz blackberries, 4 oz blueberries
OK, I think I am over berries and greens. The smell of it at the end made me a bit sick.

1 quart celery, kale, pear, lemon, cucumber, ginger
4 stalks celery, 4 leaves kale, 1 pear, 1/2 lemon, 1 cucumber, 1" knob ginger
Good. I am a little over ginger too.

I managed to get the full 4 quarts in today. I think the key during the week is to make sure I have one around 3:30 so I have time to get the 4th one in. If I wait until 4 or 5 then I would have to have the last one about 7 or 8 and by then I just don't want anything.

Starting 173.5
Today 162

8 hours

Yoga stretches

I woke up feeling groggy and my eyes had a really hard time opening. I felt better as the day went on. Usually by dinner time my stomach is just not feeling good. It is grumbly and feels yucky. I increased my enzyme from 2 pills to 3 hoping it would help but, not so much. I have been getting the worst gas! If I could just get my digestion going!

Positive changes
Canker sore is gone
Fluid filled bump seems to be gone
Skin on body is nice

Coated tongue
Skin on hands is sooo dry
My glow is gone and my face looks ruddy. Probably has something to do with my digestion.

Nothing in the emotions department today.

I was craving pizza.

None - my kids had a half day of school again and I spent the morning at my son's reality store. It was fun.

I wanted to share Carrie's Valentines Dinner with you. I love it. Here I am just trying to get by with my green juice in my mason jars and she is whipping up a 9 course feast of juice in all kinds of beautiful glasses and bowls! How creative. See, juice feasting can be fun and creative!

I am leaving on early Sunday morning for a few days with my family. We are going to the Wisconsin Dells. We are staying at the Wilderness Water Park so the kids should have a ball. We have never been there which is unheard of in our part of the world. It is only 3 hours away so just about everyone I know has gone. I could never bring myself to spend that kind of money in Wisconsin. I mean, no offense to Wisconsin but if I am going to spend a lot of cash on a trip I want to go somewhere fabulous. We decided to go when my mom and grandma gave us a gift certificate for Christmas this year. Now I get to check it out without spending too much cash. I am so frugle.

I will be packing up a portable juicing kitchen along with all the necessary produce so I will be able to continue my feast. I will post more about it after I return. I am not sure how much posting I will be doing while I am gone. If I had to guess I would say it will be quite minimal but you never know.

I also saw that 9 course VD dinner and thought, "My word, there's always next year!"

I'm glad you've had so many positive changes today. You're doing great!

Enjoy the trip! I'll miss hearing from you.
