Day 5 of 60: The First Family Get-together

In celebration of my nephews 15th birthday, we got together for some family food and fun. It was a very nice time. My sister-in-law is a great cook, really goes all out. The smells were amazing, and I am sure the food was as great. I made it through, nothing but my juice past my lips...oh, and some tea, but not the delicious looking sausage and peppers, grilled London broil, salads, hot dogs and burgers, not even the awesome ice cream cake or Caravel ice cream cookie sandwiches. There will be time for all that later in the year.

Everyone had questions about the fast, as expected, and people didn't want to eat in front of me at first, to be nice. I appreciated that, but it is really not necessary. I am ok. I am not dying of hunger or malnutrition. I will eat juice, strangely enough.

I had a facial, and my skin is red and needs rest. I had a pimple on the bridge of my nose yesterday, but it went away. Today, she killed my skin. Nothing like going to a party after not eating for days and looking like cheese grater was taken to your face. Ugh.

Today my drinks were alright. The Apple Pineapple for breakfast was good as expected. Then I drank Cabbage-Carrot-Celery for lunch and it was less cabbagy than I expected. It did not smell great at first, but the pound of carrots to half a head of cabbage was okay. I think I like ginger and carrot more, but the sweet carrots are sometimes too much in general. For dinner I had Broccoli-Cucumber-Spinach-Celery, or Popeye's Revenge as I will forever reference it. It had a no-taste taste. I think I killed my taste buds tonight with the cabbage, or I was deadened by all the food around me, but I did not enjoy it as much as I could have.

On a side note, I have pain in my right jaw or temple, but something is off. It really hurts. I thought that I would have sore legs from pilates yesterday, but no, a sore face and jaw. WTF? You would think after not chewing for days my jaw would itch to chew. Huh. Wonder what is up with that.
