Hey all! I’m finally 10 days down. I have Around 38 days to go before Jamaica. Today was a great great day. I got up and got ready for class, which started at 8. Got there with time to spare and started drinking my papaya, orange, beet and mango juice. I LOVE IT! One of each but a quarter of a papaya. I strain my juice at least three times before drinking it. I’m having a hard time stomaching the pulp, which is crap because usually I love pulp in my O.J. It was a beautiful morning and got to talk to my friend Audrey.
After class I went home and took a nap on the couch until my sister woke up and her, my brother in law, and I went to the bank and then to the farmers market again. I swear if anyone is juicing find a farmers market. It is remarkably cheaper. We got a LOT of food for around $120.00. I started taking Omega 3, Biotin, and continuing to take B12. I started taking Apple Cider Vinegar shots to improve some things and I’m also going to try a soap saturated with tea tree oil. My nails have been growing pretty fast. I don’t mind at all J .
I came home and we unloaded the car of our findings. Victor (my brother in law) cut open one side of a young coconut and tried its deliciousness and we were all shocked and blown away. That is incredible. If no one has tried it DO!!! It’s kind of nutty. You must drink it out of a straw and I promise you when you come up from air you will be smiling!
It’s been a beautiful day. It was a little on the hot side while we were at the farmers market but it just promoted us to drink more water. For “lunch” I made the mean green juice from the movie. Got to say its def not my favorite. I pounded it and then read a blog that says its best to sip the juice so it absorbs into your system. Fuck me. So guess I’ll be pinching my nose and sipping.
We took mom to the hospital yesterday to see if in fact she did have a stroke and she didn’t. THANK GOD. The doctor said she has Bell’s palsy, which kind of numbs half her face into not reacting to expressions. So you can see how we thought it was all a stroke. I was mess. I hate going to the hospital for head traumas. I can see broken bones be fixed and I don’t mind people needing stitches but people please take care of your brains. Your body needs them and my God my nerves need you to have them. My friend Susie came by to make sure I was ok and sat with me for a while. I can’t put into words how incredible that were. She doesn’t even know mom but she knew I was hurting and she didn’t ask questions. That’s what you call a friend. That and seeing my friend’s text me about praying for her or retweeting a prayer request for her on twitter. I am so touched by everyone in my life. I feel like I need to send out cards or flowers or something to show my appreciation. I might start my friend of the week back up. I have a great circle of friends. J
The hCG is still in New York. I hope its here soon. I already can’t complete a full 40 and I’m kind of interested in seeing the impact it has on this whole weight loss and feeling better about fresher food. I look at some photos of food now and think “gross” and I’m starting to think about my cravings and what I really want. Right now it’s been fresh, perfect, colorful, sushi. I could devour some of that right now. No joke. But when I see a hamburger I can’t get past the plastic cheese and the squished bun. I’m sure it taste awesome and for the first couple of days that’s what I wanted but now I could go for a grilled chicken salad with marinated feta cheese and brightly colored vegetables with olives and a home made dressing. Uggghhhhhh. Anyway. After wiping my drool away. If you’re just starting out keep with it! Your mind will start telling you how great it’s feeling and start craving something that is as fresh as you’ll begin to look.
I hope everyone has had a great day. 6 days until I weigh in again. I’m excited what all has come off. Especially once the hCG gets started.
P.s. give Marc crap for having great fun in San Diego with out us. He’s probably on a golf course right now. Don’t feel guilty Marc, I’m just ridiculously jealous.
