Day 45: Stawberry Fields Forever...

Strawberry Pineapple juice for breakfast and that was it.  I was running so late this morning, couldn't find my car keys, and I forgot to grab the coconut. I was so hungry come lunchtime. I think the yummy juice for breakfast went down too fast and I was all in for lunch. I couldn't go out for lunch because I had things to do at work, and when I sent home I did the olives again. I must have sucked the salt out of about 10 Kalamata olives. Sure I spit the pulp out, but still, so bad.

I waited too long. Ugh.

I made tomato garlic celery juice for dinner. It was good, but the guilt weighs on me. I only have 15 days left, so why did I have such a bad day? Such an off day?

Even though I was rushed this morning, I should have gone out for lunch. I know that not having lunch is destructive. I know that waiting hours and hours to have something when you are hungry is destructive. I think I did it because I am getting nervous about the end of the fast? Maybe I am nervous of success? I have a lot to think about tonight.

In other news, a new gym opened near my house and I am thinking of joining.  The special is $20 a month for the year. I think that sounds like a good deal.  I am going to check it out tomorrow after work.

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…
