Post-Hangout Replay

Wow. I am flabbergasted by the amazing people I met through this journey so far. Andy, Jimmy, John, Michael, Tony - what guys to know. Handsome devils with golden hearts! I have such respect for the freaking outstanding things you all have done in your lives! Tony Robbins, you lovable high-strung giant (wink), your passion for giving of yourself, for pushing people to see their own stories and helping them recognize there are other, more empowering stories that is also their truth, is inspiring. In one hour online, you have managed to reach out to a collective of people and share just an ounce of the flood of information you have to give.

As for what I gained, well, aside from the real-world - let your dog visit the neighbors if you are ever streaming live to the internet and talking to Tony Robbins - I learned that my own self-talk past is shared among many of us. I may have thought I was all those horrid things, but in reality, I am my own worst critic/enemy/liar. I may act lazy/crazy/ugly sometimes, but not all the time. It is not the foundation of my being. I may do some boneheaded things, but in reality I am woman with a post-graduate education and witty to boot. And damn if I am not a sexy powerful woman!

Hell yes I would do this again.  I hope Tony really does get in touch regarding the Wounded Warriors project. I know first-hand how completely yoga can transform, and for soldiers returning from war, at war with themselves, it has the ability to teach them to meet and release some of their demons. It can also show those who have suffered physical injury/loss, that they can find a new state of normal, and that normal may be different, but perhaps just as amazing as well.

Much love!

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 - Being Intuitive versus Being Rational

When discarding, follow your intuition. Don't rationalize holding on to things because they are "perfectly good" or useful, though you haven't actually had a use for it or love it.

Your gut knows the real-talk about an item. Your brain talks its way through reasoning value.

Your gut feels the emotion (good and bad) attached to your things. Your brain makes up stories to justify their existence.

You feel joy in your gut. You think about pros and cons in your head.

This is probably the best and worse advice Kondo gives.

Being intuitive and not rational is great when going through clothes, shoes, excess kitchen tools, decorations, etc. I'll bet most people can easily pinpoint that item that they know they hold on to but they have never used or it doesn't fit, or it is just there for no real reason.

When I first read this, I could name several items I have saved because I thought I would use them, but I have never used them.

Case one: My Mother-in-law's fake …

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!
