Time To Do It Again

11/09/12

Doing the good stuff is not always easy.  Today Carol and I have begun a journey.  One I hope will take us to a place of better health.  Sixteen years ago I began my healing journey with a handful of herbal capsules for a bladder infection.  Along the way I have made many exciting discoveries about myself and people in general.  One in particular is we humans have a hard time finishing what we begin.

Finishing what we begin is not an easy undertaking.  We get bored with the process or the work on ourselves becomes too hard.  Where is my stick to it ness?  Why do I have such a hard time staying with a good plan?  I did a 40 day juice fast but could not finish and come off well.

Time to do it again.

Today is the first day of my new juice fast.  Since February when I finished 40 days of juice fasting I have not done well for myself.   Old habits and favorite foods I find hard to give up have left their mark on my life.  The time has come to juice fast again with a few modifications.  I plan to eat raw two days a week. This will break up the extended juice fasting hopefully preventing the long recovery time back to regular food.

The raw food will keep my system alkaline while at the same time my digestive system will still be processing solid food.   The most difficult part of my extended juice fast became the process of reintroducing food to my stomach.  After 40 days of consuming only liquids it was several weeks before my stomach could appreciate solid food.  Cooked food was another story altogether.  Consuming anything cooked made me feel like I had poisoned myself.  Nearly six weeks transition was required before by system easily accepted cooked food.

My goal is to find an easier way to get the benefits of an extended juice fast and maybe bypass the extended recovery time.  We shall see.
