Day 37: Headaches ache

I have had a mild headache since yesterday. I guess it is either a symptom of detox or the lack of glasses (that are already 4 years old) at work. I am sure it is a combination of the two. So tomorrow, I have an eye exam to get some fancy new specs.

I juiced a whole bunch of giant red globe grapes for breakfast (a first) and they were so good, but so sweet. It was sweeter than soda. I really took until noon to finish breakfast. For lunch (around 3:30) I had young coconut water (again) and this one was especially delicious. I got the lid off in such a way that the meat was still intact and only the shell peeled off the top. It was cool, but I didn't have the camera to take a photo. Ah well.

I came home and made the hubby ravioli, a quick tomato sauce, and then decided it would behoove me to make a juice for myself. I know it was late (after 8:30), but I needed to start getting in the juicing dinner habit again.  I made asparagus celery cucumber, and boy was it green. It tasted very mild, not at all like the taste of cooked asparagus. I am not sure about that weird smelly #1 thing yet (have not digested that far, but I will let you know if the same holds true for raw juiced asparagus).

My thoughts today have been about extending this or not, raw food or not, vegan or not, clean eating or, you get the point. I think I am obsessing over the end and not focusing on the present again. So I took a few deep breaths and noticed that my pants are falling off (yay!) and my bra is too big (boo!). I need to go shopping soon for some new things so I don't look like I am wearing another person's clothes.

What am I forgetting to tell you? I am not sure. Does anyone have questions? A topic started that I haven't already covered? I think I need a prompt for tomorrow. Thanks in advance!

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!

Career: Be a tree - grow in place

In an age when research says millennials change jobs 4 times before age 32 and job sites advise switching companies to advance in your career; they claim "workers who stay with a company longer than two years are said to get paid 50% less, and job hoppers are believed to have a higher learning curve," I'm here to say: try to grow in place.

Last week I celebrated my 9th anniversary with KPMG International; tomorrow is my 38th birthday. I get all reflective around this time of year for sure. I'd like to share the advice I gave a student recently. The power to grow is in your hands.

My path was not direct. I planned on being a writer and a professor. I guess the idea of reading and writing all day and talking to students seemed the ideal nerd-career in my 20s. While in university I worked in business development and in the temp field, moving from company to company on long and short assignments. I worked as a tutor in the school with students of all majors and degree pro…

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…
