Juices in order of consumption
3/4 quart orange strawberry
1 quart romaine, Boston red lettuce, tomato, celery, cilantro, garlic
1 quart romaine , carrots, apple, celery
That's it. We had people over til late and I thought I would get another juice in but my stomach just couldn't do it. Gassy and bloated doesn't make you want more juice. I have to do better.
MSM- I decided that I want to try taking my MSM again. I gave it up very early on in the feast because of my upset stomach. I really want to try and incorporate it back in so here we go. Probiotic
B5 morning and evening - I am out. I have to make a trip to the health food store.
Enzymes with each juice
My body was so sore that I couldn't hardly walk much less exercise. I needed to rest it. Just bending over to sit was so painful. UGH.
Once again, I am sitting here trying to come up with something to say about how I felt physically and nothing is really coming to me. I felt fine. How boring is that? I didn't feel spectacular and I didn't feel horrible. Just fine.
Friends are beginning to comment on how much better I look
Red bumps on legs
Bumps on upper arms
I know you probably don't want to read this but I have been passing things in the bathroom that I know I am not injesting. Possibly undigested food or...I don't know what. Gotta love that cleansing.
I had a rather up and down day today. I was feeling pretty serene and happy for much of the day. I was either running a kid to an event or relaxing and reading. I managed to clean my house too. It was pretty good. Then my 2 teenagers got into a physical fight. This is not new. They do this often. My oldest came down crying and I talked to both of them. It didn't go well and I found myself in a funk. My husband came home from being gone all day and I was in a pissy mood. We had a bit of a run around and I just felt like shit.
The funny thing is that I found myself thinking; "What the hell is wrong with you Michelle? Snap out of it. You don't want to feel like this." But I really couldn't seem to get out of the funk. My husband left and went to the store and by the time he got back things settled down a bit and shortly after our guests started to arrive and I was fine. We had a lot of fun in the evening playing cards and talking.
There was an onion dip with pretzels, some cheese spread with crackers and a tortilla dip put out on my counter for the whole evening. I don't know if I was craving it or just craving the idea of it.
Trash Bag Tango
None- It is the weekend you know ;o)
One of my friends who was over told me that she wants to start juicing on Monday. She doesn't know how long she will do it for but she wanted my help. I know she wants to do it strictly for weight loss so I am thinking about forwarding this post from Hanlie. She also doesn't have a juicer or a Vitamix and is coming from a SAD diet. I suggested that she start with a Green Smoothie cleanse and see how that goes until she gets a way to make the juice. It should be interesting to see how this plays out.
I have to admit that I am getting bored with my blog posts lately. There doesn't seem to be much excitement going on and I have been so busy with other things that I haven't had much introspection. I don't want to stop posting about my day because this is a record for me as well. I will have to try and mix it up a bit. If there is anything you would like to hear more about or something you enjoyed, please let me know so I can get a little guidance.
