I thought today would be a good day to talk about this little goal I had. Remember my earlier post about that mentor from college? Well, Dr. Rob Gilbert also said "If you do something everyday for 21 days straight, you will form a habit." Now, I am not sure how true that is, but I have had that little gem in my mind for some time now, waiting for day 21 to say -- I did it. I think this is the first thing I have consistently done that wasn't go to work/go to school/shower etc. Haha. If feels good. With this in mind I begin the next third of this fast.
DePiero’s Country Farm near my work and got fresh squeezed OJ and a coconut. I also have been having my nutritional supplements, so I feel I am doing everything I can to keep up with my body.
Can I tell you how happy I have been these past 3 weeks? Sure the first few days were a bust, but when I got in the groove, I feel so good and -- dare I say? -- joyful. I had such a great weekend, even with the bout of sick I felt coming on Saturday night, that my waking hours have been filled with happiness. I just feel it welling up sometimes. Maybe it is the Spring, but I was bouncing around in love with the weather and with just doing not much of anything special. Spring fever perhaps, but I can't really describe the tingly happiness that wants to come out.
I also thought I should post some photos, just for comparisons sake.
Here is me before I started:
Here is me from the weekend:
I already see it on my face. And the side note that my clothes are too big and my hubby is showing signs of malnutrition (not really, just leaning down since I am not cooking as much for him and he has to fend for himself):
