2.6-9 - 4 DAYS OF POSTS!

I am not sure how to tell you this, but I totally ate Easter Weekend. I juiced in the AM and ate PM. I wanted to partake in the festivities at an impromptu BBQ on Saturday (and hour away from my juicer in the woods), so I made juice for the car on the way out: Citrus Blast! Grapefruit, Orange, Lime

On Easter Sunday, I had a green juice for breakfast and forgot to get a pic. We went to the movies in the morning and I totally had some popcorn but avoided the soda and snacks.  Then later in the day I made some cod and potatoes for my Easter dinner and Filet Mignon for the Hubs. Nothing to report other than I was missing the energy I got from a day of juice.

Monday was awesome. April Fools Day wasn't always the brightest day in the past, but the sun was out and warm and I was revved up! It was almost 65 degrees! My lovely sister got some guys to mulch my yard (she is the best) and the outside now looks like we care for it. All around it was a great day. I had some vanilla Almond milk with cinnamon for breakfast (fav drink ever).

I forgot to photo my juice until it was almost gone. It was Pineapple Apple Orange - and it was good, of course, though it really took nearly 3 hours to finish while I taught.


Today is a repeat of the sun and happiness. I am working from home, something that presents challenges and freedoms. I was able to sign on early this morning, bang out a bunch of work before my day should have started, and I was done at 4 (well, never done, but I stopped). I made an awesome juice Strawberry Pineapple Pear
I know right? How pretty does this look?  For dinner I am having a liquid salad - whatever is turning in the fridge (I think Kale Zucchini Bell Pepper Fennel Garlic Celery). I am doing more juice tomorrow, but will be away for 4 days doing some sort of vegetarianism with some fish in that time to appease my aunt and uncle. I insisted on bringing my juicer, so we will try to get some juice in too. I am still planning it out.

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…
