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.

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!
