Life flows better... 13 y
...when you're organized
This week, I learned that I have to get up earlier if I donít want to be rushing around in the morning. I also need to iron either on the weekends or at night. Thereís no way around it. The weather finally turned nice for the first time this week and Iím loving it. I didnt have time to make a smoothie this morning(cause I was ironing)so I bought a large one @lunch for only $4, and it was pretty good. Spinach, cucumber, pineapple, mango banana. I plan on including Seaweed, Cucumber and sprouts in next weekĒs smoothies. I would like to have smoothie days, where thatís all I drink; but Iím wo ... read more
Week 1: Experimentation 13 y
Yesterday three people (other than me) tried my smoothie and liked it. This morning, again feeling pressed for time, I quickly debated whether or not to even bother with the smoothie or iron something to wear, since I didnít have time to do both. Luckily, I found non wrinkled clothes. Todayís smoothie consists of 3 peaches (canned in pear juice), a little lemon & lime, celery, ľ apple, Ĺ a bag of spinach, a few romaine leaves, cinnamon, agave, 2 bananas, 4 blackberries, a cup of water. Stopped to taste. Yuuummm. So far, so good - then I decided to use turnip greens ~ so thereís a bitternes ... read more
My first smooth smoothie 13 y
Yummo! - Rachel Ray
I pushed past my resistance to go to the grocery store yesterday and bought some non organic fruit & veggies. I got five different greens. This morning I made my first smoothie with my new blendtec total blender, and I am in awe. What a difference from my regular blender. Even a huge difference from the smoothies I bought from the store earlier this month ok? It is so...smoooooth! You get one of these blentecs or vitamixís or anything like it, and you will probably never go back to the regular blender. I say the extra money was worth every penny. I know I sound like a commercial, but I can ... read more
Hi Everybody! *waving* 13 y
Ya can't keep a good woman down...for long...
I missed yíall :) Letís see, I had to read my last post in February to remember what I was up to then. Somehow, it seems longer than that. At least I came back while itís still 2010. And guess what? In spite of my self, I have actually been learning. Alot. One conclusion Iíve come to is that a long term mc (lemonaide) or even a juice fast is not appropriate for me. I know there are some who swear by it, but I need something else. I need fiber, for one thing. I tried the PSMF, but my body immediately revolted against the protein even though I ate less than the amount that I was supposed to, ... read more
Famous last Words... 13 y
Leaning on the Everlasting arms
When last we spoke, I was doing so good - Then my co-worker proposed a pre-valentineís day girls night out. UH!OH! My first thought was ĒJust Say NOOOOO!!!Ē but then I thought, you canít hide from the world. My next thought was, ĒWhy not?! It worked beforeĒ. But do I wanna be a hermit? A recluse? I can decline drinks, & dinner, and meet everyone for the movie. Smart huh? I was not altogether confident, but I figured Iíd test my resolve. But do you know how good movie food looks when you havent eaten in 4 days? I had to make a choice. I chose Chicken tenders w/ bbq sauce. Who knew chicken t ... read more
Good Friday 13 y
and better bm's
Bobby Flay won the Iron Chef America battle of Chocolate last night. Heís the man. I decided to take extra fiber before I went to sleep with strata flora probiotic superfood, hoping for a change in my stool when I woke up. I also took Colon Blow (pyssillum w/ herbal capsules) for Breakfast this morning. Between the fiber and the pyssillum; I see an improvement. While not totally back to normal, Iím now getting solids as well as liquids. I just had some colon blow for lunch. Iíll have one more for dinner. Iím looking forward to seeing the results, and getting some junk out. Iíll have to dri ... read more
The Honeymoon period 13 y
And all is well...
Other than the constant stomach rumbling, and the ĒliquidationĒ Iím feeling pretty good. I made my mc drink with agave today; and Itís a nice change from the molasses. I didnít have that exhausted feeling in my legs like yesterday, So I think the alkilinizing minerals worked. I call this the honeymoon period because thereís a zone you get into where you can smell food and not get irate. I like not having to wonder what Iím going to eat. All I really have to do is take care of myself and be patient, and not get caught up counting the days. I think when you do that, you can get anxious for ... read more
Cleansing reaction 13 y
too much information...sorry
Just to be on the safe side, I called martin @ life enthusiast.com to ask him about the liquid stools Iíve been experiencing since I started the master cleanse. Itís not exactly diarrhea; I donít have that griping that happens. But there is a little gas and I can hear my stomach making sounds all day. Itís more like a liquified stool. This is odd for me and I havenít been sure what to make of it. Other than that and the occasional runny nose, I feel fine. The only time I remember exeriencing anything like this was when I tried Colosan.The difference between the last MC I did and this one, ... read more
Nutritional Reserves... 13 y
...do you have them?
For now, the Protein Sparing Modified Fast (PSMF), and the kelp noodles will have to wait. A guy at work asked if I wanted to join him and his buds on a 14 day Master cleanse. Sure, I said, but I was a little concerned about my bodyís ability to handle it. Either way, today I find myself on day 3 by myself. No biggie. My past experience tells me that not eating is not very popular. Iím doing this for me anyway, not for anybody else. The hardest day was Monday. I was hungry, and I lasted until I left work. On the way home I decided I would have a chicken parm hero, ice cream and chips. ... read more
This is a true quest... 13 y
...not just a diet anymore
It turns out this journey hasnít been completely about getting into a bikini after all. Iíve been studying, moving forward, slacking off, getting excited - then overwhelmed - then discouraged. Not necessarily in that order. But the good news is, I am still learning. About myself. Hereís some news. I have parasites. Is this good news or bad news? Better to know, I guess; what the heck has been wrong with me. I used to have get up and go, you know? Now I barely get up. If only I was exaggerating; Iím really not. Iíve been wondering what was wrong with me? what happened to me? what changed, ... read more
Happy New Year!!!!!!! 13 y
We fall down, but we get up...
Previous Page, Page 2
Wow! Itís been 15 months according to this blog, since I was last here. Can you believe it? Soo whatís everyone been up to? Me? Iím fat. Again. Do we really need to discuss this? Maybe later, not now. Some people collect coins as a hobby - up to now, it appears as if dieting is mine. Anywho, Iím on a new quest, or rather an old one; but this time†I íll win! Ya hear me?!? I really mean it †There were times I thought about stopping by to say hi, but I couldnít think of what to say after Hi,†Iím fat, you know? Well, Iíve gotten over it, and† Iím glad to be back. Itís a little sad when youíre ... read more
