Hi everyone, it is good to be back. I feel like I was gone for an eternity! How is everyone doing with the beginning of the Global Juice Feast? It is so great that you have all begun this wonderful process and I can't wait to get some time to catch up on all the blogs that are out there. Way to go everyone!
My weekend was...well interesting. It was about a 4 1/2 hour drive that my mom and I shared and that went well. When we got there I immediately went to Malek Al Kabob to see what kind of juice they had. I ordered their special juice that was made with celery, carrot, parsley, orange and apple. I asked for extra celery and parsley and hardly any carrot. It was still pretty heavy on the carrot.
I headed over to the hotel, checked in and went straight to my meeting. It was good to see my old friends that I hadn't seen since July. They are all such lovely people and they came in from all over, Florida, California, Texas and Colorado. It was a wonderful reunion.
We had to be ready to go at 7:30 am on Saturday so I got up and made myself a quart of water with my green powder and some lemon. Eeeeeew, it was disgusting. I chugged as much of it as I could but ended up dumping it and drinking the master cleanse.
At lunch I took off to get more juice and I was in quite a hurry. I ended up getting pulled over and given a ticket. It was so interesting. Normally I would have turned this into the biggest drama in the world. Instead I just sat there and decided to stay present. I noticed for the first time in 15 minutes that it was a beautiful day. The sun was shining and there were birds flying around. I ended up sitting there waiting for my ticket smiling like a goof.
Later my mom said something like, "I would have been so mad." I said I didn't know why, getting mad wasn't going to change it. I was still speeding and I still got the ticket and getting mad wasn't going to change anything so why bother. My mom looked at me like I was crazy. It's funny because at one point she got a little mad at me when we were talking about these things and she said, "I don't want to be a damn yogi here, I just want a little healing." I guess we just aren't on the same page.
I ended up buying 2 quarts of the juice a day and each time I asked for more and more celery. The poor man just couldn't seem to get it. It was fine though. I ended up hanging out with my friends Saturday night while they ate pizza. It looked really good but it didn't drive me crazy.
Sunday morning I woke myself up because I was having a horrendous dream. It was really awful and it brought up some stuff that was gurgling around under the surface. I tried to shake it off because I knew they were counting on me to work that day. I just couldn't keep it together. When I went to the meeting at 7:30 they had me scheduled to work with someone and I had to tell everyone that I couldn't do it. I felt terrible about it.
I ended up losing it so bad that I had to be taken into another room to have a process. I was a wreck. 3 hours later I finished one of the deepest processes I have had. It was huge and I cleared so much stuff. I hadn't had anything to "eat" yet so I was feeling a bit woozy. I ended up going up to my friends' room (I had checked out already) and slept for 3 hours. I woke up and still felt lousy so I headed off for my trip to juicy town. I felt so much better once I drank my orange concoction and finally went back to work.
I arrived home at midnight on Sunday night and crawled into bed. I wish I could have stayed in bed all day today. I am not feeling my normal happy and uplifted self after such a deep process. I don't really understand why, this has never happened to me before. I wonder if there is something more going on. I am going to see if I can do a process on myself and clear some things up. If not, I will have to call a friend and get some help.
I am also feeling quite finished with juice feasting. I am going to wait and see what happens when I get myself sorted out. I have never committed to an amount of time for this feast however I don't feel like my healing has been as full as it could be so I think I should keep going. I also have about 20 more pounds to lose. I really don't feel like continuing though. I can't stand the thought of drinking juice and I can't stand the thought of making it. I decided to just get through today and see what tomorrow brings. There is definitely something going on with me.
You may have noticed that I did not take a picture today. Since I didn't shower or get out of my pajamas I figured it wasn't the best day for picture taking. I will just skip this week and we'll see how I look next week ;o)
I am excited about the start of the Oprah, Eckhart class that starts tonight. I am all ready and have the final countdown counting down on my computer. I can't wait for it!!!! I hope that many of you will be joining me as well. I think it is going to be life changing.
I apologize for my lack of enthusiasm and dull post today. I am looking forward to my improvement as much as you. Hopefully it will be quick. Have a great night!
