Days 33 & 34: Weekend Update.

I did not post Saturday because I was tired and went to lay down and fell asleep, waking up Sunday morning and realizing I forgot to blog somewhere around dinner time tonight. Oops.

Not much of note.  Saturday we took the bikes out and went over to the H Mart in Hackensack/Little Ferry. It is a Korean/Asian Market. I found the mother load of Young Coconuts there.  We took home 6 and they were inexpensive....$1.50 each as compared to $2.50 in Whole Foods and $3.99 in Delicious Orchards.  Now I have one a day for the week for under ten bucks. Woo Hoo.

The juices this weekend have been good as usual.  We went to two movies today and I brought my juice in with me.  It was nice having something, but as my husband had hot dogs and popcorn and Reece's Pieces I was wanting the popcorn in a bad way.  I didn't have any, but boy was the temptation there.  I miss chewing  a lot today.  I want to eat just to feel the food in my mouth.  I made Tomato fennel garlic basil parsley and all I wanted was little noodles and beans in to for some minestrone soup! I guess I have time for that later.

By the way...Date Movie and Hot Tub Time Machine are both really funny and very much worth it.  I was hysterical through Date Movie.

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!
