Setback OH NO!

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

And on the evening of the 8th day, I failed. Okay, failure is too strong a word. I don't like that, it doesn't really apply, because I have NOT failed. Let's say I had a setback. Everyone can recover from a setback, but failure is pretty complete. And I am not done, nor will I let this setback get me down. What was my setback? I gave into temptation/boredom and had 2 cupcakes and 2 oatmeal cookies, 2 oz of string cheese, and about 20 whole wheat crackers. Why that stuff was even in the house I don't know, but because I was so bored, I just wanted to eat. Today I am back on my juice fast and I guess I am starting back on day 1, instead of day 9.

I am going to try and experiment with the different juicers I have. I have a very old Oster, which I've been using, a Magic Bullet, and a Vitamix. I think I would like to add some of the mulch from the veggies & fruits back into my drinks. That will give me more of a full feeling. I will try just with the fruits first, purify them in the Vitamix or Magic Bullet, then add that liquid to my juice. I think that added fiber (whole food) will help. I know it has beneficial properties. Will keep you posted!

    I think when my kitchen is done I will start juicing again. It is just so hard to do with no counter tops or cutting board. In the mean time I don't have to clean the kitchen mess!

    Good for you for getting back on track. My grandmother always used to say "you can always give out, but you can never give up" and what your doing is exactly that, your're not giving up, and I applaud you for that. emoticon

    Let's start calling them learning experiences instead of failures! That changes the entire mind set! Good for you for getting right back on track. Please, make sure you are getting adequate nutrition while on the liquid diet.

    Your are right - it isn't failure. And setbacks happen to all of us...your snacking was tiny compared to mine the other night, I mindlessly ate 900 calories in marshmallows!

    Good luck with your juicing. Something I could never do since I like to chew! emoticon

    Isn't it nice knowing we are not perfect and so shouldn't expect to be and that new beginnings are unlimited and can start any time? Hang in there. -- Lou

    I've come to the conclusion that failure is just a crossroads...if you try again, it indicates you are certain you know what you want. If you give up, walk the other way, it just means you really didn't want it after all. So failure is a good thing, it just has other definitions that give it a bad rap. Failure is actually a good thing...
