Too pooped to write last night. I started getting tired around 2pmish. I got to bed early and had a well rested nights sleep. I guess my body is requiring rest; hopefully to heal and detox. I just wish I had more energy to do more stuff in the evenings when I get home from work. I assumed I'd start having more increased energy by now on this feast. Oh well. I'm sure the increased energy will come after I start back on solids.
I used to have these grand ambitions about what I was going to do later, only to decide to eat cooked food, whatever it was, then crash out! This is ONE of the things I want to change. After the kids go to bed, by 8:30pm, I could totally go to the gym and work out, go for a sauna, or to the climbing gym, do some yoga, read and or take Roxy for a walk!! I'm looking forward to being productive with my increased energy!
I actually contemplated taking a class or 2. The semester started January 28th, but I didn't want to not have the energy to read and study. This feasting takes so much time, energy, not to mention the monetary cost. I feel it's an investment in my health as well as my family's health! (Leading by example!) My kids are always asking me if this or that is "healthy"! ;-)
Did I mention that my mother-in-law is back on the fast/feast with me. She's doing a modified version. Since she's a diabetic, she's doing mostly greens juices and is also doing green smoothies. So far so good. I think she's on like day 10 now. I can tell her energy level is increasing since she started taking Roxy for a walk in the mornings. She's got at least 100lbs to shed. I'm hoping she stays with this for a while. I know I'm a motivator since I've got so much time under my belt already.
I trekked out to the elephant pharmacy last night and picked up some chanca peidra! Yeah! I'm stoked to continue with cleansing my liver. I had such a great experience when I did the Amazing Liver and Gallbladder flush, I wanted to continue until the stones are flushed out. Then I read that the chanca piedra is much more gentler, and the fact that I don't have to consume the epson salts and water is a plus. The great experience I'm referring to
Thought I'd comment real quick about how good I'm feeling right now. OMG, what a difference a day makes! I think I should really be saying is what a difference an enema make! I was unable to do an enema for the last day or so. I got a chance to do one last night and again this morning! My energy level is really I and I have an immense feeling of gratitude for this day, for this feast, for the love of my family, for the love of this amazing juice feasting and raw community! I want to keep going! I want to make it to day 92! I think I can, I think I can....
Day 34 update coming soon...
