Day 57 Juicing Being Prepared is the name of the Game

Saturday, May 04, 2013

Hopped on the scale today and it went down another lb!!!! For a total of -39 lbs.
I just don't know what to do with myself I am so excited.

Today I am going to be at Lehigh Valley Mall, for sis's gig, and I will be sitting in the mall area, reading my kindle and drinking my juice.
To make today successful I am preparing myself for the day. It's a mall and it smells really good in there. That is why I won't walk around. Starbucks is in the middle of the mall, and further down is a cinnabon. Also a whole slue of restaurants. I will avoid temptation by not going close to them. I already did my exercising so I don't have to worry about that. I am making my juices in a few min to bring along and a big bottle of water with lemon. I have my chewing gum and teas with monk fruit if I need something warm. I also have my drawing pad, and markers and pencils to create if I feel the need.

The reason I have been able to make it this far with success is because I have been prepared all the way through. I never go anywhere without water, juice and my teas, because best laid plans always have a way of running awry. Even if you think you will be out of the house for 5 min, take these with you as you can end up not returning for 5 hours. That way you don't let hunger and old memories of how things taste win you over. I say No to people all the time. I have avoided situations and stopped others from bringing food in my house. Some may call it drastic but I wanted success and I decided to put me first.

Spent most of the day yesterday researching how to break a fast and with all the tips from veterans on this plan I am ready for that too! Made my list today of produce (Dad will be getting those) including some avocados and peppers! MMM I cannot wait to emoticon eat again LOL.

Today is Holy Saturday and I will be skipping Midnight Mass. Greeks celebrate everything with food. After midnight mass we break the Red eggs, a soup made with the innards of a goat or lamb (very fatty - and I usually just sip the broth), a special Easter Bread and homade pitas (spanakopita,tyropita) and cheeses. It's like a carb fest. The same is repeated on Easter Sunday with the addition of Lamb.
I am skipping Easter too.
If I would go from a fast to this kind of celebrating I know I would end up in the hospital with a gallbladder attack LOL. I am blessed because my sister has joined me in this journey so we will be drinking mean green :D emoticon

Ok off to get things ready for the afternoon.

    SimCyn, Congrats on noticing the changes! They happen ever so slightly everyday.

I will be blogging every step of the journey. I loved reading other people's and was upset when most ended them on the last day of juicing. I wanted to know what the next chapter was like. Was there success? Failure? Struggles? So you will just have to go through the journey with me. After the day I had, I am really happy I will get to chew in 3 days.

    Thank you Time2Bloom! Yes I had read that somewhere too. I was having 2 tsp oil in my tomato based juices and in my broth. The past 2 weeks I have been adding some coconut oil in my morning juices so my body won't go in shock when I start adding it in 3 days. If you find the link can you share it please?

    LadySmith, I love Monk fruit in the Raw. There is also Nectress but it has way too many chemicals in it. Monk fruit in the Raw does not spike my insulin so I am a happy camper. emoticon

  I do like how you are prepared. I am looking forward to how you do with the paleo. I have a bit to go before I finish up, so I am relying on you to give me the heads up on the real food again when the time comes. It is a real blessings that your sister is doing this with you.

I noticed today that my face is slimmer. I know I am getting there. Your blogs are a big help.

    Way to go on the Weight LOSS !!!

I was reading on Joe Cross's Reboot site that we should have a little oil like coconut on the fast so the gallbladder doesn't shut down. They suggested 2 tsp. I think. It was a few days ago that I read that. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
