Today was day four of my juicing experience. I had one solid meal today, a salad, and two bananas. And I had about 4 juices and some aloe water. I must say, I feel pretty great. And I was reminded today how much I LOVE AVOCADO. I was expecting to feel like shit. After watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and seeing how everyone felt crappy the first few days, I thought I was going to have to juice for way more than a few days to feel good. But it was pretty instantaneous for me. I guess it also helps that I’m not sick or trying to heal from any illnesses. I’ve had a ton of energy. My head seems to be clearer. That doesn’t mean my shitty memory has improved. It hasn’t. It still sucks. But I just feel good.
I still have some produce left that I will use tomorrow as well. I think I will probably continue to juice a couple times a day. Especially the green stuff. I can get way more green juice into my system by drinking it than I can by eating it. I just don’t find it all that palatable.
I discovered over the last few days that I have a major cheese and chocolate addiction. I also discovered that you can’t trust a fart while juicing. That’s all I’m going to say about the latter.
I’m going to try to cut back on the cheese (and bread aka pizza) and chocolate. I’m not cutting it out altogether, I don’t think. Not yet anyway. But I am definitely cutting back.
I’m going to try mostly vegan for a while. I’m going to keep juicing for a while. I feel like I’ve shed some weight, which is always good to me. My skin seems to be more radiant. And like I said, I just generally feel good. I would recommend a juice cleanse to anyone who needs a reboot. If you’re local, hit me up and I’ll do it with you if you need some encouragement. Hell, if you aren’t local, I’ll still do it with you.
I was supposed to see Alejandro today, but our plans got pushed back til Monday (tentatively, I think). But we’ve been talking via text quite a bit. So far, no red flags. I’m not going to jinx myself by saying he’s awesome, or perfect, or any other glowing adjective. Not yet. But, he’s a pretty OK guy so far. I’ll keep you posted.
And my kiddo comes back from the beach tomorrow. Only to turn around and go to basketball camp Monday through Thursday and then back to the beach Friday, I think. So basically, he and I haven’t seen each other in over a month and by the time he gets back, it will be around 2 months. I don’t know if that makes me an unfit mother or just a busy mother with a busy teenager.
Still nothing on the job front. I keep looking for writing gigs, but I haven’t come up with any just yet. But I’m not worried about it just yet. I did email a guy about entertaining his three kids over the summer. But the ad was two weeks old so I imagine he’s already got someone to do that.
So, I’m just going to keep looking and trust in the universe to work shit out like it always does.
