Day 36: Do I go for broke?

When I started researching fasting, juicing, and the like, I came across this thing (I mentioned on my resources page) called Juice Feasting. Basically it is drinking lots of green juices (like 1500 calories worth) a day for 92 days.  There is a daily course that goes along with it, and I am not sure about the finer points (as I did not pay for membership to read the tons of articles), but it seems like an interesting idea.  I have watched many YouTube video blogs about this and became very inspired by other people's processes. 

In watching them, I began to think that 92 days was crazy long and I would never be able to do it.  Now that I am on day 36 myself, it seems far more doable.  92 days.  Hmm. I am not convinced that my body wants that, but I will make my decision around day 50. For now I am all in for 60 days.

In juice today - Pineapple sickle pear (yum) and the water from one young coconut.  I know. Not enough. I am not drinking enough juice. I have to do more. I am getting bad with making juice for lunch in the morning an am deferring to coconut water. I don't mean to, I just get home and get the hubby's food ready and I say forget my juice...I'll be fine.  Today I was because I went to visit my best friend and chat. I did not get home till almost 9pm, so I had some Yogi Healthy Fasting tea with a bit of local honey. I have a bit of a headache (all day working with my eye glasses at home on my table). I am getting to bed.

Night all.

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!
