Tomorrow will mark a month since Brad and I broke things off. It’s the longest we’ve gone without speaking since we met. I only know this because I did it via text and it’s archived. I was wondering the other day and I checked.
I miss him, but I’m not going to do anything about it. I think of him often but I’m so busy it isn’t distressing me when I do. It’s more curiosity maybe, mixed with a little worry.
I had a cute client come in today; another Eastern European woman. I am so enchanted with these new clients. They are so tender and sweet. She is a single grandma and she told me we were going to go on a fun singles cruise together and find ourselves upstanding gentlemen, maybe even rich ones, since it’s not a cheap endeavor. I laughed so hard. It was really cute. She says I absolutely can’t sell myself short. I am beautiful and deserving of a wonderful man. It was just nice to feel a boost like that. My heart swelled a bit. It was so endearing.
So I’ve been on this protocol now for only 4 days. It hasn’t been all that hard, but I forgot how much work juicing was. I bought way too much stuff at Costco to stop now, but I don’t think I’m going to keep going with it after I’ve consumed all this.
Although….. I have seen that my mood has been very stable and the inflammation in my body has been almost non-existent. I say this because my knee hasn’t been hurting almost at all and my liver recovered very well from a recent supplement debacle.
All the same I think I’ll slowly pull away from this very strict vegetable and fruit diet.
Actually I think maybe I’ll get up in a minute and make a cauliflower, cabbage and potato stir fry. I’m hungry.
Fruits, juices and vegetables process through your digestion very rapidly, especially cooked vegetables. Takes about 30 minutes through the stomach as opposed to meat which can take multiple hours in just that first segment of digestion alone.
So this way of eating is very easy on the body. The raw vegetables can be a hair more work but they also create more prebiotics when broken down. And unless someone has SIBO or allergies to them most people can handle vegetables pretty well and they are also a great source of fiber to aid in elimination.
I’m remembering my love of vegetables right now for sure and hopefully I’ll make them more a focal point of my diet going forward.
I was thinking of a new mantra/prayer today.
Thank you body for your strength and endurance
Thank you mind for your ability and determination
Thank you heart for your elasticity and courage
Thank you soul for you wisdom and breath of life
One day I will be done with this body and it will go to dust
But until then I should love it, nurture it, and be it’s biggest fan. It is after all mine and mine alone. What can you really say that about in life? Not much really.
I am so tired, but my stomach is grumbling and stir fry sounds good.
Blessing of lovely dreams.
