Perhaps things are slowing down. However, I gotta say I am feeling pretty good today. Getting my water back on track and increasing the amount of juice I was drinking made a big difference.

I woke up with the strongest desire for coffee. Have been fine without it until today. For those of you that don't know, I used to drink a pot a day. I miss coffee today.
However, drank my 32 ounces of water then had breakfast.

Writing early today because I don't know if I will have much time later. Will add to this post if needed later. I am including my plan for lunch and dinner. Gotta hit the store tonight for more fruits and veggies.

1 orange
1 grapefruit
coconut water

3 celery

3 cups spinach
1 large apple
1/2 cucumber
2 kiwi

Day nine continued:

Found out that an old friend passed away. I have not seen Brett for 20 years and we were only friends for one summer, but it made me so sad. We both were counselors at a summer camp. He always had a smile on his face and thinking about him makes me smile. He was only 38 years old. He suffered from seizures his whole life and apparently had one over the weekend that took his life. I will remember him with fondness forever.

This sad even made me realize how my emotions cause me to eat. After I heard this, almost my first way of dealing with it was wanting some comfort food. Not because I was hungry! If I were not on the fast I may not have realized that. I ended up getting a cup of green tea and sitting down to watch a show.

Life is short my friends. We must make the most of it. Make sure your loved ones know how much you love them. I also feel like I need to get healthy now more than ever.

RIP Brett Hamrick Or Detective Brett (he knows what that means). I hope you are in heaven making music with the angels. I am sure you have your guitar in hand.

    Sorry for the loss. Good job of seeking comfort some where other than food!

    emoticon Sounds like you have a pretty good plan there. Keep up the good work - and about the coffee - yeah I probably do a pot a day too - not sure if I could give it up completely though.
