After much deliberating, I have made my final decision to go back to my original plan of juice feasting for 92 days. There is no doubt that 100 days would be cool, yet there is this nagging feeling within me that says my days of living on just juice are numbered. I've said all along that I don't want to feel as though this is a competition or as though I'm out to prove anything. I honestly feel that the majority of work I set out to accomplish health wise is completed. There is still the issue of my weight not being quite where I wish it were, but I have been wondering if my body could be in starvation mode since my weight loss basically plateaued weeks ago. I am also starting to dream about food every night. Nothing decadent, just simple pleasures like salads, raw soups, cashew hummus and my favorite, faithful love - the smooth & delicious avocado. So, it looks like I have 7 more days of just juice and then it's bring on the prunes, baby!!
Lots of fun things planned this weekend.....today I joined up with my posse on the patio for lunch at Lava. It ended up being a meeting of the secret society of redheads! Here is my sweet friend, Geoff, the chef and I.Below is a pic of the exotic and fair beauty, Miss Lynda:And a picture of my BFF, Western, and his lovely, angelic girlfriend, Michelle:I promise he doesn't normally wear his collar flipped up like a douche...Michelle was just messing with him. See...here's a picture of he and I.....When I'm in a food related social setting like I was today, I find myself looking forward to coming out of my juicy isolation. Everyone keeps asking me what my diet is going to look like when I am not feasting and I have given that question a lot of thought. The plan is to do a high liquid diet, consisting of green smoothies, green juices, blended salads and soups. I am totally eager to eat solid foods again, but I don't intend for that to be the mainstay of my diet. With my history of IBS, liquids and blended foods are really agreeable to my system because they are so easily digestible.
I'm also working on some new juice recipes and hopefully I will be able to share them with you over the next couple of days. Hope you're having a fun filled Memorial Day weekend!!
