Days 22-28 Almost there!

So, it'd be unfair for me to say that I'm actually "fasting" anymore. Over the past few days, I had various travel, social, and familial obligations and it made juicing extremely difficult, HOWEVER now that the weekend is over, I'm going to fast for these last 3 days. I've also kept my daily exercise promise. I've done the stairs, walked, and jogged consistantly. My stamina and endurance is improving bit by bit.

Melon Mmm-mmm juice:
1/2 Honeydew
3 stalks celery
1 Apple
1 Pear
1 Peeled Lime

I never appreciated JUST how delicious Honeydew is as a base for a juice. Alone, its almost too sweet to tolerate, but paired with celery, it's so refreshing and light.

Legoland Travelling Juice

Me and my son went to Legoland for a day of rides, screaming and fun. I packed snacks for him, juice for me and we hit the road to Carlsbad.

1 bunch Kale
1 bunch Swiss Chard
1 Cucumber
2 Apples
3 Carrots
1 lime
2" Ginger

Green juice delight! It kept pretty well throughout today in my insulated thermos. Legoland allows you to reenter the park, so it was possible to re-up through out the day.

The day after Legoland, we had to get on the road and drive the 500+ miles to San Jose (where I'm typing from now) to celebrate my Uncle's retirement after 46 years in the clergy. Below are pics from the rest of the weekend. Saturday was my first NO JUICE day since I started. I did eat lots of fresh fruit and veggies, as well as some samosas and enchiladas. Sunday, there was a banquet after church, and they had a nice selection of salads. Below are some pics from the trip. I'll be here in the bay for quite a few more days, so they'll hopefully be some cool pics to view.

Those grapes were delicious. The bay has the BEST fruit and vegetables

Last night, after we got home from the family after-party/epic theologic discussion, I made a nice watermelon, apple, celery juice. This morning, after my jog, had a parsley, carrot, tomato, lime juice.

Weighed myself for the first time since I started-I have dropped over 20 pounds. Not bad for 28 days.


  1. Hey Tricycakes! It's Jimmie! I wanted to know if you had any discomfort or complications digesting any solid foods; like the samosas and the enchiladas? I have done nothig but obsess over what I'm going to eat once my fast is complete but I'm a little hesitant to go right into rich foods.

    1. Hey Jimmie! Congratsn on almost making it through your first 30 days. Transistioning to solid food again is supposed to be a gradual process. Here's a link to a blog that has some step by step directions:

    2. Great article! Thanks for sharing.
