Fell of the horse yesterday afternoon and my juicing stopped cause I was tired and starving, had missed 2 juices during the day and ended up having a couple of my bakery favourites. Not as many as usual but still, I fell off.
This morning I woke and am straight back on the horse, juicing and feeling good. No beating myself and no bruises to show.
The metaphor of falling off a horse and getting back on is used often around these parts (pardon my inner cowboy talking there :).
For some of us falling off takes time as we grip the reins and clench our thighs against the horse with out teeth gritted, trying to hang on until we finally slow to a canter and slide off with a little dirt on our pants and an embarrassed look on our face.
Then we run after the horse, stop it, climb back on and learn that that particular style of holding on or riding wasn't quite right and we learn and keep going.
That slow almost graceful fall to the ground is NOT what I have been an expert at.
I used to prefer the horse to be running at full gallop and as soon as I started to slide I would let go and crash into earth at high speed and with damaging results, while the horse sped off in another direction. I'd usually roll around on the ground for awhile enjoying the mud and eventually figure out that I probably should see where that dang horse went.
And then roll around some more, making sure I was good and dirty and feeling wrecked.
The more I dig into myself the more I am starting understand about what is going on. That all or nothing is not the only option. That making one mistake doesn't mean you have failed and are not allowed to even think about getting back on until you have well and truly numbed and fed yourself into a coma....for at least a week.
That falling of that horse doesn't mean you then have to beat yourself mercilessly for being so stupid.
It just means you made one little mistake and that's OK and get back on.
That horse is your friend in the end and he wants you to get where you need to go. You just have to let him do that.
Right that's me done - I have to go and check online for chaps and jeans. In a smaller size!
Oh - and after all that I only gained 100 grams. All good:)

I found out this morning that those things that hang off your legs can be used to walk further than from the kitchen to the couch.
Feet I think they are called? So, anyway, if you just keep putting one in front of the other they will start do do it automatically and before long you are doing a thing called ecksercize!
Doesn't look right...ekcersyze? ...nope....EXERCISE? Yep thats it.
Day 4 of juice fast, 12.5 pounds down and feeling SO much clearer in the head and slept really well.
