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.

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!
