Day 49 Juicing and more ramblings

Friday, April 26, 2013

Scale didn't move today .
Body adjusting to the new numbers that are approaching!

So today was a good day. Work wise my unit rented, and I am putting another condo up for sale second week in May. I just was feeling totally unmotivated and wasn't hungry at all :( I have to say, not being hungry scares me. I don't know why. I logically know that my body is going through changes and that one day I eat more and other days I eat less. Yet this forgetting to eat because I am actually not hungry gives me the hibby jibbies !!! Anyone else feel like this?

I set out to make mean green for tomorrow, then I just felt tired, then bored, then sleepy. Then I remembered that I neglected a whole list of jewelry that I promised to fix for a neighbor. So I got upset at myself for procrastinating... and sat my butt down and finished it all :D In the end I saved the day by quieting the little nasty voice in my head that always points out what I haven't done or accomplished. But guess what. I never made the mean green so now I have to make it early in the morn or sis will drink v8!

So now the question is, are all my emotions heightened like my smell has? or am I just seeing things more clearly because my brain is fog free?

    MadlyinLove you make me giggle with the new names you are giving me :D
    It felt good to get off my butt and finish tasks. Today has been a much better day. Got to catch up with a couple of other procrastinated (is this really a word for this sentence?) tasks emoticon emoticon

    I've heard that super-extended juice fasts unearth some raw emotion. Seems like as good a time as any to "dig deep" with those emotions! You'll probably appreciate that you've documented day-by-day in this blog and captured your core thoughts and emotions during this eye-opening time! Great work Miss Thang/Skinny Mini on overcoming your bout of procrastination, and successfully flicking that "nasty little voice" off your shoulder!

    I thank you for following and supporting me during this journey. It has been way more emotional than I ever thought and my blog pages are constantly filled with what I believe are random ramblings. Ok.. maybe not as random as I think, but I am constantly caught off guard by these thoughts. And right now we are getting to the time where things went awry. Hand injury, workers comp, unsupportive family, friends that disappeared. So the next 10 days will be all about how to get through the emotions that have left scars while trying not to relive them.

    AlieKat - I know for sure I was using food to not stand up for myself or keep me from saying things to others that I thought would hurt them. So Instead I hurt me. Thank you for sharing what you read- it makes this journey much more bearable when you don't think you are alone in it. And emoticon for the wonderful comments. I always knew I was beautiful inside - but the outside world made me feel that I was unattractive on the outside. Working on that now, that I can see and think clearly. Why do we believe other people's lies?

    Wallahalla, clean living has been an eye opener! I hope I don't lose all these insights as soon as I start chewing foods again! emoticon

    I was reading some response to a video on another site, a man was on day 91 of his 100 day fast and he got extremely emotional in his video. One of the comments struck me as so interesting. If a person has used food to mask their emotions and now the food has been stripped away by only juicing, your body/mind will also go through an emotional detox. When you have no food to hide the emotions behind they come front and center.
    You're doing great! And remember you're beautiful inside and out! Don't hide that!!

    Good question. I think more clearly when I'm juicing, and my senses seem heightened as well. I think it is a benefit of clean living.

    SimCyn I keep on saying to everyone, I lasted this long because I hid from the world. Literally. Our office didn't have meetings for 2 years and suddenly 2 weeks ago, they started them up again. I didn't show up :D I have avoided cooking, being around food and think maybe went to the supermarket twice? I thank my family daily multiple times, because they help me out. Mom if she cooks she will tell me not to go visit her so I won't get tempted. If they go out they won't tell me what they ate. Dad does the produce shopping for me. And of course sis followed the plan so we won't cook.
    So I have been in a bubble. I wish you could come visit and then you wouldn't have to worry about smelling yummy stuff around :D
    And wish I could have had some of your juice LOL I am still feeling unmotivated so I am going to head to bed.

    I wouldn't worry about the lack of hunger. I think your body is just happy getting the juice nutrients, so it isn't telling your body that it needs more food. I do fine with hunger until I am getting supper ready. The smell really gets the pangs raging. You are so lucky you don't have to go through that.

    Wish I could send you some of my juice. I made a bunch tonight. Now I just need to clean the kitchen.

    stay strong
