Day 83

Day 83 is going fine! I am having a relaxed day and am enjoying it. It is quite a warm afternoon in the north of México, it has been a warm week... yet Eduardo and I haven´t felt it as much as the rest, I think it is because of slower metabolism due to just juicing. I´m glad because I really really prefer not to turn on the AC... ever... which is odd given where I live, also interesting I don´t like cold water for drinking either.

Anyway, the last few days I myself have been running hot an cold I have had days of just wanting to start eating, knowing that I won´t- having come so far in the journey, and some days of being just plain happy about juicing and not picturing myself eating solids anytime soon. Pendular, pendular it goes around here lately.

I feel kind of guilty of not making the most these 92 days, having not medidated, not done chanca piedra and other such things. I don´t know if/when I will do this again for this long and I have a little naggy feeling that I could have done better. I have done some yoga, some walking, lots of wanting to buy a rebounder soon.

Then I cut myself some slack, I have juiced A LOT. I was making sandwiches for a friend yesterday and I made a pretty high stack of tomato slices, cucumber, spinach, sprouts and sunflowerseed cheese, avocado, a pretty wholesome big sandwich and all I could think is... "wow that is such a small amount of food, not even a whole tomato, only 5 spinach leaves?!?!" I mean one of my juices is one head of celery, one buch of cilantro, one pound of tomatoes, one whole cucumber, plus the basil and garlic... I have juiced a LOT of food, every day. The fruit plate on my table holds quite an amouunt of varied beauties, pineapple and mango, and canteloupe, kiwis, apples, citrus and it is just enough for two or three days. I have been a good juicer, a good juicefeaster. I can see how some of it is just nonsense in my head.

I haven´t weighed in for a few weeks, but I do know I had to punch an extra hole in my belt to hold my jeans up. I feel great weight-wise so I guess I don´t check in anymore.

83 x 120/365=27.2... this means I am reverting the damage done in 27 years by now... almost reborn!

Day 74

This is the painting I finished last week, I had a nice juicy and creative flow with this one and I enjoyed it a lot. Right now I have commissions for 4 more (for just one house!!) and 2 more pending... ahhhh to be flowing is so great!

The juicing is going great, I have been drinking less than 4 qts, but it has been totally fine, I didn´t weigh in this week but I feel I haven´t lost much weight in the last week, I feel just stable and level and ok. I have been loving orange+peach juice, Eduardo is loving it too. And yesterday I made a celery+galric+ginger+lemon juice so savory and tasty and when I do it again today I will use less garlic.

Loving this. day 74 already. Already having fantasies of all the gorgeous salads that I will eat after the feast, I made the decision to stop eating nuts regularly at least, maybe for parties or weekends, but definetely not daily anymore. After the feast, nuts only rarely, and seeds, well flax and hemp mostly and sunflower and pumpkin scarcely too. I will be fresh!
