I have been pondering a bit of a detox since I came off the old pills. Feeling that I really wanted to give my mind & body a good old clean up. I have always been a lover of fresh healthy food but would often settle for a take away when tired & grumpy after a taxing day knowing that I couldn't face cooking. I don't even like take away food and knew that it would make me feel more sluggish & slug like but those few minutes of ease whilst munching and knowing that there wasn't going to be a huge kitchen mess made it an easy & lazy decision.
So after being inspired by 'sick, fat and nearly dead' a film by Joe Cross and the new film by Jason Vale 'Superjuice Me' it was decided that we would embark on a 28 day super juice program to give ourselves a right go clean up on the insides.
It wasn't about shedding pounds but losing 22lbs has been a wonderful bonus, it has been about washing away the toxic overload that had built up inside. Rebooting as Joe Cross likes to put it and resetting some of those trod and worn neural pathways in the brain that make us reach for the easy option one too many times.

So today is day 29 we are carrying on juicing twice a day and will eat one meal, hopefully as raw as possible with some meat or fish....tonight we are having Salmon and I am licking my lips already.
I had hoped to feel elated and over joyed along with a feeling of huge achievement but to be honest I feel crazy lost. Pondering my direction and where I want to go next. I have a few projects to finish off and then who knows. Everything I loved my crafting & stitching and faffing about has become so saturated in everything, everywhere I look its in my face and I almost feel smothered by it. I am surprised by my reaction because I always thought I would be overjoyed by this prospect and can't fathom out why I am not. I hope this will pass but it again urges me onwards to simplify everything and get right back to basics and just tread the path of day to day.
