Day 25: Nut Milk just sounds dirty...


Today I had mango pineapple apple orange juice for breakfast (again, totally yummy).  I nursed it all day though.  Aroung lunch I had a small organic Almond chocolate milk. It was verry yummy, very very yummy, and I think all so wrong.  I read about using nut milk if you are losing weight too fast, to try to slow it down, so I tried one to try and slow my loss as I lost 30 lbs so far.  It was something dangerous. I had another serving for dinner.  I think that is the last I have it as it tasted like chocolate heaven. I have OD'd on it today and I feel a bit zingy. I have 2 more single servings left in the fridge. I think I will give them away if I can't resist (but they are good till November, if I want to save them.)

I went for another session with my colonic lady today.  She loves my Vibram Five Finger toe shoes. Aside from our lengthy conversations about my shoes, she chatted my up about how the fast is going...I think really well.  She had once done a fast for two weeks at a retreat center and she gets how this long fast is tough but cleansing. I won't go into details again, but she says things are looking good with my fast so far.

Woot to 30lbs gone!

KonMari - Clothing AKA the reason I'm not naked

Marie Kondo starts with clothing because, I guess, we are more quick to purge clothing. We have to do this over the course of life when clothing gets ruined or looks old. She obviously doesn't know people like I do, because I've seen closets that are packed full of every item the person has bought in the past 20 years (or more). I am not this bad ONLY BECAUSE I have fluctuated weight up and down so often that much of my wardrobe consisted of cheap Old Navy or (insert plus size store) which never wears more than a year. I don't have many lasting staples. No real investments at my size.

The saving grace is that the process Kondo gives--get all the clothes, put them all together on the floor and touch each piece as you sort into joyful items, donate items, and trash items--forces a mental revelation. YOU HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF. I had over 30 tee shirts! I had 15 pairs of jeans! I had over a dozen day dresses and 10 fancy ones! I had 24 pairs of underwear, many I hated wearing b…

KonMari - Does this blog make me look preachy?

We have too much stuff.

Here is a general statement - we retain a lot of stuff we don't need. Our capitalistic culture wants us to keep buying more stuff. Our culture wants us to keep up with the Jones, to memorialize moments in sourviers, to buy storage solutions for our things, maybe hold grudges and emotional baggage of guilt associated with gifts and hand-me-downs. We keep to preserve but to also avoid loss.
Last night after reading a really hysterical piece of satire about the influx of the KonMari and minimalism into our culture, I started to feel bad that I was step-by-step processing my belongings in this method and it was a bit...gross.
I had that same reservation when I took my first photo for this segment of the blog - my entire wardrobe on my bed.
Can you imagine I looked at this, at one time thankful for the bounty that allowed me all these clothes, but also horrified at my own horde. "Oh, poor me. I have too much stuff and I can't manage it all like a normal…

Day 60: Top 10 Before and After - Number 1

Last Day of my fast! I am so happy. I have my meal of prunes soaking for tomorrow. I am thrilled.

I filmed a bit this morning, but the sound is off. I will post it here anyway.

I went to Nyack Main Essentials, that Vegan Dominican Juice Bar I went to on my birthday 60 days ago.  I had pineapple celery kale parsley lemon ginger juice.  It was really great.  That grapefruit asian pear juice was pretty good too. For dinner, after my interview, I made tomato basil leek parsley celery juice that was great.  Overall it was a great day, and I am looking forward to eating my first solid food in 2 months!
