No, I didn't forget about you.....
I apologize for not giving an update yesterday. It was a crazy busy day and to be completely honest; nothing exciting or really worth mentioning happened. I still feel awesome and I have yet to experience any negative side effects. It’s been a good couple days to say the least.
Aside from juicing, I finally heard back from my insurance company regarding the status of my car. It has been deemed “totaled” and they are going to pay out a settlement. What I find really irritating is that they won’t repair a car if the cost of the repairs exceeds the value of the car. I hate that we live in such a money driven world and that it’s acceptable to simply fill the landfills with more garbage rather than finding ways to reduce our waste and the impact we have on the environment.
I personally think that a person should be held accountable for their actions and I think the driver who made an EXTREME error in judgment should be forced to pay for the damages he made. Not only out of respect for me and the danger he put me in, put also with the awareness that his actions has placed a burden on the environment by causing unnecessary waste. It drives me CRAZY!!!!!
This is only one of my many rants to come……….. LOL
It has been raining here on and off for about 2 weeks now and I am really looking forward to some sun and heat. I’m generally cold to begin with, but I do find that I’m even colder being on a juice cleanse.
All I want to do is wrap myself up in a giant sweater and cozy blanket. Hahaha
I have also being cooking a lot these past few days and to be expected, Marc just loves it. I find that the smell alone is satisfying and contrary to what people might be thinking; no it is not torture. LOL
I LOVE cooking and preparing new dishes and I have been using this time (and Marc as my guinea pig) to get myself prepared for cooking plant-based meals on a consistent basis.
Once this juice cleanse is over, I am going to transition into a whole foods, plant-based diet consisting of only natural goodness (fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains). So pretty much anything and everything that comes from Mother Nature (and is still in its natural form) I will be consuming.
I am really excited to give 100% to this new lifestyle. As with the juice cleanse, I don’t expect it to be easy. It will require a lot of work and I will need to plan out my meals in advance to ensure I have everything I need, but I think over time it will become automatic and not feel difficult at all.
I completed a 30 Day Raw Vegan Diet a few years ago, so I already have the necessary equipment and quite a few recipes under my belt to be successful. I can’t wait to bust out the dehydrator again!
Only 8 more days to go!
Happy Hump Day Everyone!
