Juice Feast ~ Days 19
1/2 Gallon of GR's Green Juice with Dandelion Greens.
OK I am going light on juice today...this cold just seems to be making me "force it down". At least I can't taste the bitterness of dandelions. :-) I might have a little warm hebral tea before the night is over.
Ben started His Juice Feast this morning. He has decided to do it for a week and take it from there!! I am so proud of him for being open to try this! I really want to grow old with him and I know if he would be willing to do this every so often in our years to come that it will increase our quality of life together!
Anyway, I expect his detox to be a little rougher than mine. He likes to indulge in junk a bit more than I do..so I am afraid he will see the effects of that during this fast. He has a cold like the rest of us...so He is run down today. He came home from working at 3:30 (and only 1/2 gallon of green juice) and went straight to bed with a splitting head ache. Poor fella. Please pray for him this week.
Ben was teasing me this morning, he said, "You look like a married Indian woman." Why? Because I have a big red detox sit in the middle of my forehead. :-)
This I have learned:
1. Dandelion Greens are very bitter (i knew that - I have eaten them before) but extremely concentrated in juice. I have a feeling much of my case will be going to the sheep or chickens. There is know way I am going to get through this case before it goes bad...and I am not going to suggest my DH put himself through it. :-)
2. Our subconscious mind really has a strong ability to sabotage our growth and inhibit us from doing what we know is right of good for us!! I got so made at myself this morning. This was it the day of my first colonic - no more excuses. I gather my supplies and find I missing the most important element...the bag! I looked everywhere, Ben looked everywhere! I just had it out at the beginning of my feast as I was preparing...gone. I am a pretty organized kind of person. Everything has a place and I have a place for everything. :-) SO.... you can imagine my frustration! So I juiced my morning juice and went to town to get another one..in the cold rain, with my red nose and cold. Like I said...today WAS the day! You know what...it wasn't so bad after all! Strange - yes...but do-able.
