Day 37

Never stop. One always stops as soon as something is about to happen.
-- Peter Brook


I receive several diferent inspirational quotes each day and the above quote found its way into my inbox this morning. It is amazing how synchronicity works!

Juices, Supplements etc. in order of consumption
1 quart water with 1 tsp honey and 1 scoop of my super green formula

1 quart spinach, pineapple, celery, mint

Shot of hemp oil

1 quart romaine, tomato, celery, carrot with tops, lemon, garlic, basil

I just can't seem to get the full amount of juice in me. I wanted to but I just couldn't stomach anymore. I felt sick drinking the last quart and had to dump it.

Weight
Starting 173.5
Today 155


I gained a pound? What's up with that?

Sleep
8 hours

Supplements
Probiotic
B12
B5 morning and evening
Enzymes with each juice (I forgot to take them w/ the green powder drink)
Colon Cleanse
Chanca Piedra
Liquid Zinc
- I went to the health food store and bought a bottle of Zinc Status. You are supposed to put 10 ml (2 tsp) of the liquid in your mouth and hold it for at least 10 seconds. A lack of taste or a delayed taste perception suggests possible zinc insufficiency. An immediate taste perception suggests zinc status may be adequate. It tasted like water to me. I guess I need some zinc. I will continue to take it because there isn't a real good source of zinc in what I am currently ingesting and I have so many symptoms of it.

I was told by my chiropractor friend over the weekend that it sounds to her like I also have a magnesium defiency. I will look into this further and see what I can find out. It seems like I am deficient in many minerals that aren't in veggies. I wonder if that will be the case with magnesium too. I will keep you posted.


Exercise
None

Physically
I felt stronger physically today. As the day went on I felt better and better. My stomach seems to be doing pretty good. Every once in a while I can feel an underlying discomfort but it is not constant like it was before.

Positive changes
Skin is smooth

Detox
Tongue is really coated
Lots of mucus in back of throat
Red bumps on upper thighs and upper arms again

Emotionally
It was a slow start up today. I was feeling a bit down in the morning still. I felt myself coming back as the day went on. I was listening to the CD I wrote about earlier in the day and it really uplifted me. That inner dread I had yesterday seems to have lifted. I am feeling more peaceful and happy.

Cravings
Salami. I don't even really like salami but I craved it anyway.

Trash Bag Tango
Sorted through some pictures.

Meditation
OK, synchronisity AGAIN! I got these cards from The Journey called Guided by Grace and here is the card I chose today:

Second Chance
Have you given up on something or someone recently? Have you let go of a dream or settled for second best in some way? Have you limited or contained yourself somehow?


It is time to give yourself a second chance. Know that life is a flow, a stream of consciousness that is constantly, wonderously changing. No two moments are the same.

Life loves us so much that each moment it offers us a blank page to write our life anew. It's time to pick up that dream, reach for that star, start afresh. Allow your natural wisdom and Grace to guide you. Know that each life experience teaches us profoundly, if we but listen deeply. And know that each day is a fresh start, each hour is a pristine new beginning. Know that every new second is your second chance.

OK Universe! I get it! :o)

Ramblings

Day 37 retraces me back to 1996 which is the year that I got married. You can see my wedding photo with my wonderful husband and my two little guys. Dallas is on the left and Cody is looking so thrilled there on the right. We were married in a garden at The Danada House in Wheaton, IL and had our reception in a tent.

The day started out dark and rainy and we were going to have to move the ceremony inside. With only an hour to go before the start, the clouds parted and the sun came out in all its glory. We had perfect weather for the start of our life together. When we were pronounced man and wife, the guests were asked to reach below their seats where there were little, white pyramids. When they opened them butterflies flew out. It was fantastic!

Our wedding was beautiful and quite magical. People talked about it for months and so many people called me about advice I briefly thought about being a wedding planner. Just thinking about it brings a smile to my face.

I have to say that as wonderful as that day was my relationship with my husband has gotten stronger, deeper and more perfect then when we were first married. I am so blessed to have him!

I had a colonic appointment today and I can definitely tell that things are beginning to move more freely now. I am releasing a lot more material each time I go. Maybe I lost that pound I gained. :o)

Wow, those are some strong messages you got! Thanks for sharing, Michelle, they motivate me as well.

I'm still hanging in there juice feasting with you, and I am on Day 5, LOL! I am utterly amazed by how it lets emotions come to the surface.

Happy "anniversary" ~ it is so nice to know there are happily married folk out there.

You were a beautiful bride! I never had that kind of wedding... I sort of eloped both times.

That quote is still causing ripples inside me... I feel as if I've been a quitter all my life. It is so important for me to see this Juice Feast through to the end. I need to prove to myself that I can complete something and thus start a new trend for myself. Come what may, I'm in this for the duration, and probably beyond!

Seems like the Universe wants you to go on... I'm being so blessed with things, ideas and opportunities coming my way. And you know what, not only is my juice feasting changing me, it's changing my husband. He's coming around to so many of my ideas, without me even mentioning him. I feel as if I'm moving into alignment wih my purpose!

I had a colonic scheduled for this morning, but she phoned and asked if we could postpone till tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to it!
