Day 7-A Day Late!

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Day 7

B blueberries, pineapple, orange, fennel, cucumber, ginger-omg, juiceheads, you gotta try this one!
L Romaine, pears, grapefruit, parsley-another good green one
D apples, oranges, grapefruit, tomatoes, celery

Well the guys are done with the lawn and as soon as they left the birds descended. They love organic stuff as much as we do! While they were here, (the men, not the birds!) I did a ‘Raworganicvegan’ on them! I was making my breakfast juice and thought I’d offer them some. They loved it, of course. Breakfast is always my favorite juice of the day. Well of course we started talking about juice, food, organics, etc., and before I knew it I was telling him what his mother should be eating...and not help her arthritis!

My dreams have been very colorful lately. I think I’m processing a lot of stuff while I sleep. Sometimes the message is clear to me and other times, like last night, I just wake up and think omg, I gotta call Steven Spielberg!

I hear your advice, friends, about slowing down and taking it easy, but since I’m retired and the little work that I do is sedentary, I feel I need to do my gym time. I can restrict my activity to my water aerobics class and take it at an easy pace...maybe. Trouble is, I don’t know how to do ‘easy.’ When I work out, I push. But I’ll work on it. Maybe I’ll go to the back of the class with the talkers!

I was so busy that I didn't get around to posting this yesterday. Went with a friend to see Anne Lamott, one of my favorite authors, last night. She was wonderful.

So I'll be back later with a week 1 recap.

    How fun spreading the word. Sometimes you can't help it! ;0

I don't always believe one way is the only way but in this case, I too am voting for you to take a break for at least a day. Not that any of us get a vote! LOL... but as long as you are on the subject.

Can't wait to see the movie!

    I can tell by how you write you are a busy body.... nothing wrong with that.
I will say that early on in my fast (30 days) I did nothing extra... and I do mean nothing. Everybody is different however so, what your body says goes.

It's something how easy a healthy life is to spread around. And it's easy to share once you have started one. Way to spread healthy living around.

    A lot about our getting better has to do with releasing old beliefs. I bet you do feel like getting up and out. And yet, and yet, give that rest day a try. results! emoticon You'll see fabulous

    Listen to Karen emoticon

I didn't, but you DEFINITELY should emoticon

I feel like I could use a day in bed. Actually, that sounds like a good idea.

    Leeney, there is also a block about simply laying low. Your body will not heal as much as you are intending for this fast unless you slow it down. If I could make one recommendation I'd say STAY IN BED one day totally. I mean it hon. You are wasting time being busy when your body is telling you to slow it down so it can take over.
