The last supper.

Dustin and I, the night before the Feast

Tonight Dustin and I will be going on our last food date before we begin our juice feast tomorrow. I must say, the thought of not eating solid food for 92 days is intimidating, but I am confident that the health rewards of eating this way will way outnumber the sacrifice. I have seen how raw food makes me feel, and I love it, so this seems like the next logical step.

For our last supper we will be going to either Thai Cafe', or Golden Dragon, depending on how bad we want bubble tea. Mmmmmm, I love Thai food.

So, for the next few months, this will be my official Juice Feasting blog. I will be posting pictures of our transformation, our juice intake, and I perhaps videos, if we get the nerve to make any.

So wish us luck!! Woo hoo!!

Slip up.

After weeks of nearly raw, I broke the seal and made myself a pizza at work.

And guess what, it feels icky, nearly twelve hours later. The pizza betrayed me, and made my tummy feel gross.

A juice would never do that!

I guess that I just needed a reminder that raw food is the best food in the long term. Pizza is only tasty while you are eating it, and it will turn on you almost immediately.

Juice Feasting

So, Dustin and I made an executive decision whilst sitting in the bath today. Because we are both in our best couple friends wedding in December, we are going to start the Juice Feast one month sooner than planned: December 1.

(As I'm writing this, some girl just left the computer lab crying, hmmm)

Anyways, so we're starting the Juice Feast, and will be fasting over Christmas, which isn't as sad as it sound, since Christmas is never a big food holiday at my parents house anyways. I say that, but I'm sure my mother with make sure to make a big deal of it just to punish us. I'm bitter, but it's true.

I'm really looking forward to it, mostly because it will mark a major turning point in my life; one that I've really been needing.

My goal is to be thinner, healthier, happier, and more spiritual at the end of this juice feast, and I'm really excited about it!

Woo hoo!!

Raw again..

I'm trying raw again. I'm more prepared, and more ready this time. I've only lost a minimal amount of weight, but I think the longer I stay 100%, the faster the weight will come off.

Also, in January I will be starting a 92 day Juice Feast. More on that later.

Why raw? Because it seems that all signs point to it. It doesn't matter what I am searching for, I always end up on a site promoting raw foodism. So,I'm going to give it my damnedest, and hopefully it will take me where I want to go.

I'm discovering that I don't have to give power to the emotions that I have associated with certain cooked foods for so many years. This go has been very liberating, oddly.

Also, it's knitting season. Woo hoo!!! I haven't found a project yet, but it's only a matter of time!

And for funsies, here are the most recent pictures of me and miss kitten.

She is so squishy!

Me and Dustin got totally wasted watching the elections last night, so by the time Obama made his acceptance speech I was freaking sobbing I was so happy!

Woooo hooo!!!

me and dustin aren't registered, and i'm so disappointed that i don't get to vote in the most important election of my life.
