60 day juice feast: letting go of emotional ties

Saturday, December 01, 2012

My updates are getting more and more infrequent. I am just going with the flow right now. It is getting a bit harder to stay focused on the goal. The rewards are numerous but being around food as often as I am makes things very hard. Tho I have not eaten a thing, I sure am mad about it sometimes. I think this is all a mourning process really. To get over the addiction to food one has to cross a lot of emotional highways I think. I know I would be severely disappointed if I stopped now. I know I will complete this fast, Yah willing. Some days are just more of a mental battle. I keep looking at my goals and praying through my prayer requests, waking up early to read Scripture has given me spiritual clarity and encouragement.

Physically I feel great! I have lost weight. I feel more energized. I sleep great, I don’t wake up unless the baby needs me. I am walking with a friend and getting stronger. I would like to add in more strength training. My days are filled right now and I just don’t have time for it. Perhaps things will slow up soon. If not, I am ok with that too. A wife and a mom has many responsibilities and I gladly take them on.

Some books and documentaries I would like to recommend that have helped me stay motivated are listed below. Bye for now :)

Books:
The Daniel Fast
The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Juicing

Documentaries: (available on Netflix)
Forks over Knives
Food Matters
Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead
Food, inc

    Ditto.
    I frequently have to re-read for motivation, peace, clarity and focus.

    What a wonderful inspiration you are!
    Know this; what you share here is such a benefit to me and I do believe others that come here as well!
    You are doing an amazing job.
    Thank you!
    I too have many of the same motivational sources you do.
    My prayers are with you!
    Yes a mother and a homemaker especially one who homeschools as we do, does have a busy fulfilling life. To capture those moments for a bit more of time is not always as easily with younger little ones running about and dependant on us, especially the baby.
    I am blessed to have gone through those years and just have my 14 year old daughter now. Know that all you are doing is with honor of a life that has been gifted to you. You are strong in Him and He will bring you through what He brought you to.
    Blessings,
    Erin

    You are doing such an amazing job at keeping focused. I imagine the difficult part is cooking for the family but with prayer and the strength you gain from it, you will overcome.

    I am currently looking at juicers to purchase and would like to start the juicing myself after watching all documentaries you mentioned a few months ago. I am trying to prepare myself mentally and spiritually before I start. I would like to go 30-60 days.

    Thank you for the recipes in your later blog. I have them in my recipe book and cannot wait to try them.
