Physically
The day started off feeling pretty good. I had good energy, I felt good. About 4:00 or so I started to get pretty tired. I was drained and felt like I could go to sleep. I was also feeling bloated and had a bit of a headache. I had a completely normal BM today all on my own without any colon cleanse or enema. What an accomplishment. I feel like I am accepting some kind of poop award. I would like to thank the people who work at the sewage treatment plant for making this possible and sanitary.

Emotionally
I chose the above picture today because I felt like that boat resting on still waters. I just felt so calm and peaceful today. My darling little Aidan had a bit of a temper tantrum tonight and I kept my cool to a degree that I have never been able to do before. Normally I will keep my cool but underneath I am boiling. I didn't even realize how great it was until later when I thought about it. If you ask me that is when you know you have made a huge change, when you don't even realize it. That's awesome.

Cravings
None

Ramblings

Only 20 days left. I feel like I am beginning to do a countdown. I try to stay with the one day at a time philosophy that has served me so well over the last 72 days but I am finding it increasingly difficult to keep myself from counting how many days I have left. On one hand it is great because I know I am nearing the end and on the other hand it's not so hot because it's still 20 days. When I think about it, it is still a lot of days left! One day at a time, one day at a time, one day at a time. My new mantra.

Today I spent quite a bit of time making some dehydrated spicy seed mix for my hubby. He has been eating so much better these days and he bought some sunflower seeds in the shell to eat at his desk at work. He got called into his boss' office because someone complained about the noise of him eating them. :o) You just gotta love office life. I was pretty surprised as I usually am with all the BS that goes on in an office. I have never had a job like that since I grew up in an entrepreneurial family so I am not hip on office politics. My husband and I laugh because I would never survive. They should start an office survivor show like that commercial. Ha ha, I would get voted off so fast!

Anyway, I think it was a blessing really. The seeds he was eating were cooked and probably loaded with salt so now I have the opportunity to make something a bit healthier and quieter. hee hee. I used sun dried tomatoes and a bunch of Mexican spices and they are in the dehydrator. They smell divine. I just hope they taste good because I made 7 trays worth!!! I got a bit carried away.

I had some fun with my sharpie markers today while watching Juice Feasting videos. I was creating all kinds of fun little black and white mandalas. It is so easy and surprisingly meditative. I really enjoyed it and there was no expectations for something awesome to come from it so it was freeing. It was like doodling. I will have to keep up with this.

Only 20 days left...wow! It is going to fly by and you'll be back in the chewing world before we know it! I also think we should give you the Pooping Like A Big Girl Blogger Award! I never underestimate the power of a good BM, especially when it's an event more than the norm. I think it's a good sign, don't you? LOL!!

Love to you..

Twenty days! They will fly by in the wink of an eye!

Your seedy thingies sound delicious. I think office BS is the biggest reason I never want to go back to work. I still speak to my ex-colleagues from time to time and when I listen to the things they whine about I just want to scream. I'm much happier, albeit poorer, at home.

Beautiful picture... Very calming. I was asleep by 9 pm last night. Unbelievable!

Congrats on the Poop Award, you really earned it!! Love your drawing too!

Just remember all we have is RIGHT NOW. 20 days will FLY BY when you think of it this way and at the end, you will probably be a little sad the feast is over :)
