New Stats! - Day 70

I don't know who these people are, but this picture works for me. Today has been a wild and crazy day. Lots of emotion and intensity coming at me from every angle. Circumstances have gone full tilt, yet I am still standing solid and strong. Earlier this week I felt anxious, tense and frazzled for no real obvious reason, and now today I have every reason to have a major emotional freak out but I am as steady as still waters, calm as a cucumber, easy like Sunday morning. All I can say is Hallelujah.

There is no need to share any drama of the day, especially since it's late and I feel my feather bed gently calling my name. BUT I am going to share some exciting factoids with you on my 70th day of juicing:

I had a good chuckle at the "70" pic. I thought, "wow, she must have been really confident she'd make it to 70, 'cause those plants look like they've been around a while! Then I read on...
So I had a bigger chuckle when I read the measurements. You sure lost a lot in the bust!
bust - was 431/4" now 38") I guess it was a typo. *wink, wink*
Your juice sounds good. Can you taste the sweet with the honey, or is it still more of a savory juice? Still tweaking my juices so I'll be ready on June 1st...

Fantastic work on your juice feast, Penni. I hope you are going to be prepared to coach me through one someday when I become a raw food goddess like you.
