30 Day Juice Fast Start Day

Friday, April 12, 2013

Soooo... What's that saying about the best laid plans??? Today didn't really go the way I'd hoped. I have been on a waiting list to have surgery since Christmas, and now that I'm making plans and setting goals, I've been given a date. June 3rd. Scary.

Today I spent the morning running all over town trying to find peaches... I realize its not peach season, but one of the juices I remember really liking had peaches. No luck anywhere. I did get my juicer set up, and had a my first juice at 4pm :( not the proper juice fast way, but its a start. Tomorrow full day!

It was really stressful for me to find out about the surgery date-it's suddenly much more real than before. I've never had surgery, and I'm really anxious about it. I keep picturing myself going to sleep and never waking up again. Yikes!

Anyway, time to put those thoughts out of my head and focus on getting a little bit healthier before June.

Wish me luck :)

    I've had major surgery, and you do go through some anxiety, but that is to be expected. You just be gentle with yourself and hold fast to the the idea that the doctors will take over, once you are in the hospital you are taken care of, it's their job, but meanwhile it's your job to present yourself in the best frame of mind and physically in the best shape possible. That doesn't mean that everything needs to be perfect suddenly, it doesn't work that way. But, what a difference you can still make between now and June!!! Learn to get up quickly when things don't work out right away. There is still so much good that can be done, even if we stumble and fall once in awhile. Hang in there, Spark sister!!! Your day is not there, yet. Buy yourself a bunch of flowers and enjoy that you're alive!!! ((HUGS)) emoticon

    Praying that your level of anxiety will be relieved! When I had surgery, I did all I could do to prepare, including lots of prayer for the surgeon, myself, etc. Then, although I wasn't looking forward to it, I wasn't frightened any more, because it was in God's hands, not mine. emoticon

    I know what you mean about the fear of surgery. But you will be fine.
