day 2 detox

Day 02 08:52hrs.

Dear Solid Food,
I miss you terribly. I'll see you next week when we get together again.
love,
Carol

top ten cravings:

1. lasagne (i never even eat lasagne but I've been dreamy about it)
2. cookies, ooey gooey cookies
3. snacks, nuts and berries and the like
4. wine
5. cheese

actually we'll leave it at top 5. that's really all I'm craving. I am however drinking some lovely teas from the T salon in Chelsea market. right now is red rooibos tea with a hint of vanilla and coconut. yum!

went for a colonic yesterday. I don't want to even talk about it. holy mary mother of god I really don't want to talk about it. I will say that I feel much lighter now.

Spent 1/2 hr making 2 whole juices last night. jeez, it really takes a lot to make a cup!

Bought bentonite clay that binds chemical toxins. tastes...mmm, like....CLAY. eww

probiotics and digestive enzymes and green superfood shake mixes (chocolate flavored) to all help digestion and give me nutrients when I can't make juice (the superfood)

This is going ok. I can't wait to eat, but I feel fine. I had energy in the morning and I will of course go to my dance class this evening. Only 5 more days after this.

1st day

7:33 am: coffee? what? no coffee allowed? I'd already thought of this, and I've got "organic maya mocha teaccino." that I can put in my coffee maker and pretend it's coffee. But, somehow (and I'm not sure why this could be) this does NOT seem at all appealing. OH! I just remember that I've got red rooibos (sp) spicey chai tea (bought as a suggestion from last yrs nutritionist, aka the wheat lady to some folks). I have that with blue organic agave nectar for sweetness.

Then I make my first juice. It's a good think I'm moving in 2 wks cause I think I woke up everyone in the building! That bastard of a machine is mofo' loud!! I spent 15 min turning precious veggies into shreds to produce barely a pint of juice. damn, that means I've got to juice perhaps the night before and make 3 or 4 pints per day. I'm supposed to drink juice (or a green shake supplement) every two hours. and tea. as much tea as I want as long as there is no caffeine.

9:16 am: I'm off to work. Good thing everyone there knows of these health kicks that my colleagues and I do. And they work in the meatpacking district in the fashion industry. They're pretty accostumed to sprouts and the like. (

ps: this fasting blog is hereby dedicated to Adam, Nicole and Al who've recommended I blog this and ALSO make the kind recommendation that I should be eating lots of raw cookie dough (cause it's a raw food) and chugging red wine (for it's antioxidant properties). hrmmm, not a bad idea... ;)

pps: i'm starving already!

ok that's a lie. I'm prepared to be starving any minute!

let the juicing commence!!!

I'm starting a juice fast tomorrow. I've been saying this for the past week. But no, really! I even bought a juicer and there's about 5 pounds of kale, 3 bushels of beets, 3 bags of carrots and a bowl full of apples just waiting for me to make medley's of them. In other words, if I procrastinate any more, I'll have wasted about $175.00 on raw veggies and a new juicer (supplied by Kmart for 40 bux). Did I mention that I hate KMart? Even their Jaclyn Smith line makes me cringe a little, since I worked on that campaign at my old job. Jaclyn Smith is about 90 going on 23.
Anyway, I'm nervous. No. I'm...already feeling moody from eating veggies (with coffee and cheese for cheats) alone since last thurs. I've already lost a few pounds. I'm already a bit tired. I'm excited for this exhileration thing that's supposed to happen!! hello? It supposedly takes a little while. and with juicing, all will get worse before it gets much and hopefully MUCH better! That, I AM indeed excited for!!
So, here is where I will write sordid details, to gross you out, make you laugh maybe, and give you info on what might work or not for you! Warning...cleansing involves some pretty gross stuff. like, colonics and many bathroom trips. I'll go easy on you's. unless you piss me off while I'm in the cranky phase by bringing fresh pizza's to eat near me while I sip on fucking kale juice.
that's all for now.
sleep.
