Oh My!  I did 108 days on juice, exceeding the 92!

I'm still blogging post-feast, so keep checking in!

The countdown is on! 17 days to go!

I've got two confessions to make: I'm new to blogging and secondly, I'm new to juicing.  So, this might be a process of needing to bear with me.
That said...I am so excited to get this Juice Feast underway!  My Samson juicer arrived about a week ago, and I understand its quirks, we are starting out on the right foot together (a couple problems: a crucial part came undone during the shipping process, and it has a tendency to loosen itself and come apart while juicing! -- found the solution to that too).  I'm doing the juicer route, instead of the blender w/nut mylk bags because of my shaking hands.  Straining juice through the pulp bags seemed like a green Jackson Pollocak painting in the waiting.
I must say, I felt very chic leaving the vegetable store with a bag teaming with fresh, organic veggies.  I came home, and started juicing.  I figured that some practice runs, plus integrating juice into my system before the big event was crucial.  (This is unlike me...take my Vipassana practice for instance.  The first time I'd ever meditated was Day 1 of my 10-Day silent retreat.  And, it was wonderful! 
The first night, Simi (my daughter) and I juiced up a bunch of carrots.  Since they weren't peeled ahead of time, they tasted a wee but earthy.  My friend Jessica came over and we had a juice party with great results!  I've made juice several times since then, and learned the hard way of just how potent an all-green juice can be.
I've got my Vitamineral Green Superfood being shipped to me now, and I'm awaiting news from the government in the nest couple days that I'll get a disability pension (hopefully!) -- and then I'll be able to afford this feast!
Thanks so much...your support is the best...and a shout-out to friends: we best get together for lunch within the next few weeks!

Go Bronwyn! You're the best. I can't wait to read about your juicing adventures. First step, juice party on Thursday! (who knew juicing could become the excuse for so many social gatherings?!)
