Two smoothies, 10 olives, 5 apple rings!

It's funny....I was saying how desperately I wanted to eat -- well I woke yesterday morn, the day I would start bringing fiber and solids back in -- and now that I'd allowed myself to eat, I didn't want to --

instead, I prepped a green smoothie for myself -- about a litre's worth -- and had that through the day - strawberry, apple, ginger, spinach!

Only at about 5:30 did I crave something savoury: had about 10 kalamata olives, and then wanting the upswing of sweet again, had a few apple rings.

Today I'm having a similar smoothy this morning...and will treat myself to a Café Bliss meal for lunch! Likely a salad. One thing I know that I intend to do is cut down on my nut intake...I think that wa the factor in making me feel a bit heavier!

DAY 7! Evening of final day of feast!

I feel great! This is the evening of my last day of my New Year's Juice Feast!

I averaged about 2 litres of juice a day -- and me being me favoured the fruit all the way through. I would look at the spinach in my fridge, and my mouth would salivate with delight at the prospect of soon biting into it in the form of a salad. I love my salads!

I actually would love to have a salad first thing tomorrow morning - but alas! I am not that foolish!
A smoothie likely, and then salad -- this feast hasn't felt like a major paradigm shift for me -- I don't think going back to eating some simple solid fruits and salads will be so tough - meaning I don't think it will be such a shock to the system!

I took my friend to Café Bliss yesterday and man oh man! I wanted to eat - but if I know anything about myself -- if I set my mind to something, I'm doing it.

A week was intended. A week was therefore completed.

Many sweet blessings to my other friends who are currently feasting and to those of you who I've never met -- I'd love to hear from you all - be it by e-mail or in the comment section here!

Happy juicers!

Today's juice was celery, pineapple, beet, carrot, apple, ginger! Delicious!

Day 6! MRI!

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) Today!
Yes, the big white tube they put you in to get images of your brain - my brain!
I'm so curious to find out what the images look like 2 1/2 years after my first scans. The same? Permanent scarring? Different?
I will post when I know!

Day 6...and I want to eat. I feel great on the juice, I've lost a few pounds down to weight I like --
but I also want to have a big salad, or the raw pizza slice my friend had at Café Bliss today....
Tomorrow last day of juice...then likely smoothies in the morning, turn quickly to salads! Yum!

I'm getting good response to my workshop in Action Theater™ I'm offering in March -- and over the next couple weeks I'll offer my first ever in-school workshops - to middle school age kids. Should be great!

End of Day 3! is the official start date for the New Year's Global Juice Feast -- I asked Katrina and David "why the third?!" - and they said because it's a Saturday - easier for people to start on the weekend. Made sense.

Today: Grapefruit, Orange, Pineapple, Pear, Spinach. Can anyone say Citrus?!

Good day --

things are flowing nicely and rapidly with my lanning of my Squamish Action Theater™ workshop and my one here in Victoria - a 7 week class series starting Jan. 20 -- several more people signed up today! yeehaw! OPEN! FLOW! POSSIBILITY!

I was getting and feeling a bit down - though I was suppressing it -- feeling that my ability to perform in the art form that I love: Action Theater™ would never truly be realized, because of my shakey hand that distracts and interferes with me...I was having a hard time admitting it to myself, when I just started doing some improv very much about that - all about my hand -- it was so much of a release! I found such humour in it - it was wonderful!

Another exciting element is Paddy and I started rejigging within our confines some of our house decisions that we're building on Lasqueti -- we're both supremely excited by the way it's going! -- we've added a tower that will include each of our own separate studio spaces! Private space. Our own space. This triggered a series of small changes, such as moving the woodstove placement -- and everything fell into place better than we had it before (which was dmn good!)--

But also supremely fantabulous was I got to meet my "new niece" - my best friend Brooke's 10 day old daughter Natasha!
Beautiful! Stunning! In awe!

I'm soaring at the end of Day 3!

Day 2 and excitement!

DAY 2!

Now somehow when I read the announcement of the Global New Year's Juice Feast - I read New Year's and stopped - I equated that with January 1, 2009 - well apparently the official start day is the 3rd - hmmm?! I wonder why? but the FIRST sounds and feels the most appropriate for me!

Day 2 -
yesterday's juices sat a bit heavy - were dense -
today went easier - juicing two litres of pineapple, orange, apple, carrot juice.

Went to Café Bliss for a lunch-time Green Buzz drink with wheatgrass. By the way, Café Bliss has a Facebook group now - so join on!

Talking of Facebook groups -
I breated my own today:
for my Action Theater™ doings and followings - if you're interested do join the group! I'm supremely excited because I booked a 4 hour workshop to offer in Action Theater™ in SQUAMISH, BC this March 7, 2009. So...if any of you live in the area, consider joining up!

So....I'm pumped -- feel good -- better than yesterday!
Inspired, and feeling blessed!
