Day 50

St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time – a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic.-- Adrienne Cook

Juices in order of consumption
Shot of hemp oil
1 quart orange, celery, spinach

1 quart romaine, celery, pineapple

1 quart romaine, tomato, garlic, celery

1 quart celery, orange, apple

4 quarts again. I am a rock star. I think looking at all those raw food recipes and pictures is making my stomach growl so I get hungry. Whatever works!
I have been a naughty girl in regard to the hemp oil. I was having such a hard time getting it in because it makes me sick to drink it with my juice. I tried drinking it between juices but I didn't know how long it took to get through my system and a few times it upset my stomach when I drank my juice too soon. So I just wasn't drinking it.

Today I decided to have it in the morning after my lemon water and before my first juice and it seemed to work out pretty good. Of course I forgot to take the MSM. :o)

Starting 173.5
Today 149.5

Woo hoo! I dropped below the 150 mark. That feels good.

7 hours

Probiotic -out
Chanca Piedra
zinc -out. I finally noticed a taste after drinking the whole bottle. I have to get another one and see how it tastes.
Enzymes with each juice
Colon Cleanse

None - I thought my yoga class was in the evening but it was at 8:30am. I had to get on the phone to get an appointment for my son so I couldn't make it. Never quite got around to doing anything else.

Another wonderful day on the physical front. Feeling good, feeling good. The body seems happy. Here at 8:00 it is a bit tired but still feels good

Positive changes
Skin smooth
Losing weight
Hubby says I'm glowing
People are commenting on my appearance

Coated tongue
Mucus in nose and throat
Red bumps on legs
Bumps on upper arms
Clear filled bump on lower lip is back again

Good day. Feeling happy and light.

Baked potato
Raw delightful dishes

Trash Bag Tango
Cleaned kitchen drawer

I am saving this for a future post. Stay tuned.

Well, my sweet Cody broke his finger and got his cast today. He has to wear it for 3 weeks. He was so disappointed. You should have seen the face he was making when I tried to snap this picture. I had to make him laugh to get a decent one.

His baseball season is in a precarious position. He was given a starting position as a pitcher and a leadership roll on the team. He was thrilled and excited about it. I don't know what will happen when he is able to go back. I hope he still has a spot.

So it seems that today is the perfect day to be on a juice feast. I mean, come on, green juice all day. Woo hoo. It beats the days of green beer right? I do kind of miss corned beef and cabbage with carrots, potatoes and Irish soda bread. Oooh yum.

Here is a picture of the Chicago River that the dye green every year for St. Patty's Day. It's so weird isn't it? It makes for a pretty cool picture though. I have never actually gone into the city on that day. It is usually too cold for me. Today it actually snowed again!

Today I have reached day 50! Day 50 and St. Patty's day all in one. How awesome. Only 42 more days to go. Ha ha, when I say it like that it seems horrible. One day at a time right? I know the picture of 50 is odd for a juice feasting blog but I am in a huge sporting family so it's just right for me.

My oldest son has his first volleyball game tomorrow so that is pretty exciting. At least it is inside and I will be toasty warm.

I am thinking of taking a nice relaxing bath tonight. I wonder if I will get a chance. Good night all.

Speaking of baths, I still want to try the ginger bath for detoxing!

Hi :)

Not sure if this will help...are you using Manitoba Harvest hemp oil? It's the only kind that I like, and in fact, I can't tolerate the others.

Have a great day!

I'm sorry you have broken digits in your house :-( He sure is a cutie, though! Way to go on Day 50! I feel like I was just congratulating you on 40 days! You are moving forward like a champ!
I use a hand full of dandelion greens in my juices, not the whole bunch. I also prefer them when I have apple and lemon or lime. The citrus really cuts the strong green bitterness to me.

Congratulations on Day 50!! Wow, that feels like a long way away from here at Day 18, looking forward to it!

Love to you beautiful son for his broken finger! (sesame milk is amazing for healing bones)

With love and hugs to you,
