Clarity from sleep

The last few days i have been feeling somewhat pissed of with the juice f'ast that i took part in. My thinking was somewhat down the lines " i didn't detox, didn't lose weight, and now i can't even stick to my raw diet; which had been going sooo well" *sulk*.

Well duh, I just realized that it's not the fault of the juice f'ast. Get this. During the juice fast i found myself with loads more energy, so i started some major DIY projects that i'd been putting of for years due to ill health and fatigue. So the f'ast finished but the DIY didn't. I still had allot of energy but not quite as much, but more importantly all the things that i'd put on hold (posting/making beads, laundry etc) had stacked up, and i was suddenly trying to do twice as much as before. Also i was not finding the time to make proper raw food meals - and i wonder why my body suddenly rebeled when put on a constant diet of salad.

So i'm glad i got to the bottom of that one. It gave me the will power to have my green juice first thing, my bowl of fruit for breakfast and i have promised myself a completely moreish and filling lunch; something like Sunflower seed beet pizza. Plus i will spend the day tidying and returning order to my disrupted life.

Juice Feast - day 01 + Commission

Nothing much of note to report today. I took it easy thinking i might be a little weak or hungry but this is not the case. I don't feel terribly satisfied on juices but that is to be expected.

I was very pleased to post my first lampworking commission and it was also a relief to post Aunt Christine's thank-you bracelet; after all she did give me a car! :)
