It was a rough weekend…last of the holiday visitors…..but I was expecting it, and I gave a little more effort on my part to get through it without deviating from my juicing.. What I mean to say, is that I envisioned myself in every situation where I would be weak…..but I prepared for it by taking care of myself first before I served others.
For example, my sister came to visit and she and her husband expected to eat a certain way and have certain things that they like. This was not a problem at all. When they wanted waffles with scrambled eggs in the ;morning and I’m juicing……I am NO. 1…….my juicing comes first before I help prepare any food for anyone else. This of course stops me from wanting to taste or even indulge in any dead foods. I immediately feed my cells …I gain more energy with what I drink and then I carry on to help others.
Unfortunately, this happened to be the one weekend where I started to feel like I had THAT HAIRY TONGUE! From my past juice feasts, I secretly was very happy to achieve this first level of detox. During this time it doesn’t matter how much you drink or how many times you brush your tongue…………toxins are being released through the tongue at an excellerated rate. You’ll find that the toxins will be released much quicker than your immune system is comfortable at getting rid of them. You’ll havebad breath( tongue), urinate frequently(kidneys) , become somewhat constipated/ and or have liquid stools, the skin sometimes turns yellow (bile) from liver cleansing itself. Your skin is your largest organ and when you are doing some GOOD housecleansing it will flush some of the bile salts through. I kept looking for these signs of detoxifacation and welcomed it.
It is my third full day of the juice feast and I fully expect to have no excitotoxin cravings soon. If you can stay completely raw for three solid days……it will be smooth sailing from that point forward.
I love to sleep during these deep cellular cleanses….I have intense vivid dreams….and I know it is because I am feeding my brain cells….like never before. It is also like a personal Christmas every morning when I wake up. I have given myself a small present of another pound of toxic fat release from my cells………and I’M HAPPY!
