Day 49: Feeling Much Better

I had a good day. After I accidentally spilled my fresh plum strawberry juice into the sink (really, a full cup), I made some apple plum juice for breakfast. Then, for lunch, I had coconut water.  Topping the day off with food shopping for celery and tomatoes for me, and Manwich for the hubby...BUT I am not feeling hungry like a mad woman today or anything like I have been.

I wanted to blog about my dinner and show pics in the process of making it, but I doubt anyone even reads this blog anymore, so, maybe tomorrow.  I am weighing the process of uploading and including all the photos with getting to bed before 11pm. Right now, it looks like 11pm wins. If anyone wants to see all the juicing details, let me know in the comments...(if anyone is still following...hello? [echo echo echo])

Tomorrow I am going to that screening, if anyone wanted to go I have 2 extra seats. the details are in the post a few back if anyone wanted to go and not be my special guest...

Oh, and in disgusting news...I left some of that carrot juce from Whole Foods, in the cup in the car overnight. It has been kinda cool up here this week, so I think, no biggy, right? Wrong.  I go to dump the cup out in the sink today and ewww.... it was the consistency of slime and boogers. It dripped out of the straw like one giant orange snot...ick.  Then globbed down the drain. Never have I seen a drink left for only a day, do that.  I say either it is a mark of freshness and no preservatives, or there was something funky going on with the juice to begin with and that is part of why I felt like bloody hell last night. I wish I had taken photos for you is all I'm sayin'.

Night!

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!
