1. 1 quart Water with lemon
2. Bok Choy, Swiss chard, celery, lemon, mint, apple, spirulina, chlorella
2 large bok choy stalks, 2 large swiss chard stalks, 4 stalks celery, 1/2 lemon, 4-5 sprigs mint, 1 apple, 2 spirulina and 1 chlorella capsules.
This was very tasty. It was really nice and light. I love mint so much. It is so refreshing.
3. 1 quart of water
4. Swiss chard, spinach, celery, lemon, ginger, pear, spirulina, chlorella, kelp
2 large bok choy stalks, 2 handfuls spinach, 4 stalks celery, 1 lemon, 1 1/2- 2 inch piece ginger, 1 pear, 2 spirulina and 1 chlorella capsules.
Oooh, zippy and zingy. The additional lemon and ginger that I put in made this so fun. It was like a party in my mouth. I was thinking I could have used only 1/2 the pear next time.
5. 1 quart water
6. Spinach, carrot, cucumber, tomato, garlic, alfalfa sprouts, cayenne, turmeric, spirulina, chlorella
1/2 lb spinach, 4 oz. carrots, 1 cucumber, handful grape tomatoes, 1 clove garlic, 2 oz. alfalfa sprouts, sprinkle of spices, 2 spirulina and 1 chlorella capsules.
It was nice to drink something that actually tasted like food...and kind of weird at the same time. As usual my first sip was less than enjoyable but I quickly got used to it and for the most part enjoyed it.
I normally just take the spirulina and chlorella pills but this time I mixed it in with the juice. I don't know if I did something wrong but it all globbed up and didn't mix well with the liquid so I had these small globs of green slime that I got in my mouth every once in a while. I can't imagine what I could have done wrong but this can't be right.
7. Swiss chard, spinach, pear, blueberry, mint
3 large stalks Swiss chard, rest of spinach (?) 1 pear, 1 pint blueberries, few sprigs mint.
I added the mint at the last minute because I knew it was going to be bad tomorrow and I ended up wishing I hadn't. It tasted better without it. It was still good, just not as good.
I ended up taking 2 cascara Sagrada tablets today. I also forgot to take the hemp oil. I don't know how.
My body is too busy rebuilding to worry about weight loss. :o)
None, I don't have any good reason. I just forgot. I guess the kids being home for a snow day threw me off a bit.
My headache is gone. I still have many of the same symptoms, they are just getting less extreme.
My skin seems really dry, my lips are chapping and I am always thirsty.
Heavy chest and coughing up phlegm
Underlying heartburn that is bugging me
- Positive changes
My eyes seem to be brighter (no one has noticed so it may just be me but that's OK, cuz I am all that really matters.)
I was a bit more angry today than normal and I think it may be because the kids were home for school and it threw off my rhythm a bit. I was planning on doing a Journey process on myself today. I really need to be alone and uninterrupted for it so that ended up being impossible. I will have to wait til next week. Other than that I was fine.
My kids were eating honey mustard pretzels and I got this quick craving for them. It went away FAST because I don't even like those. Weird.
I listened to The Healthiest Year of Your Life podcast with Byron Katie tonight. It was really interesting to see her take on things. I have heard of The Work and I have never really explored it. I went to her website and downloaded the worksheets and completed The One Belief at a Time Worksheet. I put "I am sick and tired of being sick and tired" in there and it is pretty amazing what came up for me.
I have had an inkling that I have some secondary gains revolving around this issue. I already knew that I used food as a comfort and a substitute for love; loving myself. Now I can see that I am getting more out of it than just that. I am getting attention and having the opportunity to be unusual. It is definitely time to do a Journey process around this. I have been wanting to do it for a very long time and I just haven't been able to do it. There can be no more delay. I will do it next week.
The other thing I got was how "my thinking" has hurt me. My thinking tends to dwell on the negative instead of the positive. When my husband calls and asks me how I am feeling I usually will give him the standard "fine" and then I launch into everything that is wrong with me even if it isn't that big of a deal. Why do I always look for the bad? If I truly wanted to be healthy I would look for the good.
What a great step in the right direction for me. I will continue to contemplate these things and meditate on them so that I may bring them to light and get them out.
I will put a clip of Byron Katie doing The Work on a woman in regards to her body at the bottom of this post. There are several things here that stuck a cord for me.
Just to let you know, I am notoriously bad about being on the computer over the weekend. I usually like to spend the time with my husband so if I do post it will be brief.
Have a great weekend!
