love, life, and the pursuit of liberation

Cleansing from the Inside

Today marks the day of my 30 day Reboot Your Life challenge based on the documentary, Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. Basically, I will juice veggies and fruits for breakfast and lunch, and have a “normal” dinner with as little carbs as possible. I am not going to be too restrictive in that I’ll still have my morning coffee with milk and sugar, and I won’t make a big deal out of having something “off plan.” Though I would love to lose another 10 pounds*, I’m doing this as a way to retrain my palate and really clear myself inside and out.

Just like I’m working on improving my relationship to Self and Spirit, I cannot neglect my body as part of that equation. I feel like I’ve done a number on her in these years of fertility meds, high stress living, and more, and frankly I owe it to myself to get my health in order as well.

I don’t want this to be entirely restrictive because I know that things that are done out of compulsion rarely feel good for me. I want to embody health, not punish myself into it. Furthermore, if treating my body well is part of my spiritual exercise, the more natural it feels—that I’m doing it because I want to not because I should- the better for me.

My official start date is Feb 1, but I’m using these next two days as a warm up. Last night I made a spinach, carrot, apple, lemon, kale juice that was DELICIOUS. Even LA wanted seconds. I’m not quite sure what I’ll have for my mid morning/afternoon juice yet.

Here’s a pic of the juice from last night:

*I am 4’11 and was 134 about a month ago. I cut waaaaaay down on my Pepsi addiction and am down to 129.4 today. My ideal weight is 115-117, which is what I was before I gained sympathetic pregnancy weight in ’08 🙂

    This is great. Especially that you aren’t being too restrictive. I make that mistake all the time. Lol. The juice you made sounds good. I may have to try it. I love greens in juice too. Go, go, go! 🙂

      So far I made one juice today and am I’m glad I decided to ween myself on instead of starting cold turkey. Though the juice is tasty, I like chewing! Can’t wait for dinner 🙂
