About me

I am a 38-year-young woman who spent far too much time talking about writing and not enough time doing it. That changed forever after I attended Unleash the Power Within in 2012.

I currently work in a Big 4 professional services organization's marketing department, being the big meany in risk management that kills creativity and questions the nature of words like "expert" "seamless" and "firm". This is the complete opposite from the other life I lead as a college English instructor who spends the night encouraging the ink to flow and all hell to break loose on the page.

I have been married for 9 years, but was engaged for 8.5 years, and have dated my now-husband since 1998, so I guess you have an idea about the procrastination aspect of my personality.  I just want to be really sure when I do something permanent. That said, I am an avid tattoo collector, ride a chopper, and hope to one day, when they'll let me, jump out of that perfectly good airplane.  I fancy myself an outgoing and friendly sort of goofball who will talk to strangers, despite her mother's warnings. I love adventure and excitement, but in matters personal and close to my heart, I am very sensitive and reserved. Please keep your bigotry, hate, and -isms to yourself as I am not willing to entertain them here.

Peace, Love, and Understanding,


  1. Hello,

    I wanted to ask how many times would you drink juice on a daily basis? Like was it from 32 oz - 40 oz or does it not matter? In addition, could you possibly make a list of the recipes you used for us (beginners) :). It would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

  2. I drank 3 20oz cups a day, plus water. Sometimes I finished it, sometimes not. I think the amount you drink is based on how much you need, how hungry you are in a given day. Some days I got 3 juices in, others 2, others 4.

    I didn't really follow recipes per say; I put like colors with like colors (greens together, reds and orange together), and I had fruit juice in the morning and veggies the rest of the day. I could parse through my fast posts and recap some winners and losers when I have more time, if that would help!

  3. Hi! I am starting my 60 day juice fast this Wednesday! Yay!!! I'm so excited that everytime I eat any food I just don't want it. But payday is Wed. so I start then. My question is, and I'm sorry if it's a dumb one, but what juice do you mainly drink during the fast. In the movie Phil talked about the mean green juice which I got off of Joe's website, but how much of other juices can you make and drink? Also how can I make a blog like this for my journey? I never thought of it and seeing yours I really want to document mine. Thank you for your candidness and information.

  4. Tiffany, glad to have you here. I used Blogspot by Google to make this blog, and I have another blog on WordPress, which are both free blogging sites. I drank about 3 20oz juices a day, and water. I made stuff up as far as recipes, that is, I put stuff together I thought would taste good. I kept fruit to the morning and veggies to the afternoon and evening. I talk about it in my blog, but I kept away from carrots and beets after the first week because they were too sweet for me. Great to have another reader. Juice ON!

  5. Hey just came across you blog and its helping me stay focused. I began my fast today and I feel so hungry...Hope it gets easier. My husband and I are doing this together. I work in Ems, I am a paramedic, so we eat unhealthy anyways being on the go all the time. So I am at work tonight and brought my juicer with me ...lol I do need some recipes....

  6. You inspired me to create a blog for my journey. Today is day one for me. Please see my blog below if you would like to follow my journey.


    Thank you :)


  7. Amanda, welcome, and I will surely follow your journey!
