JUICE FEAST Day 33,34 &35 Powder!!

Thursday, January 31, 2008 - Day 35

We have been getting so much SNOW! 56" in the past 5 days! I was able to go snowboarding the past 2 days and it was awesome-tons of powder! Due to a communication breakdown with my hubby, the camera got left in the car, so no "Juice Feasting snowboard" shots today, but here is one I had taken from the top of Big Mountain, looking at the mountain range in Glacier Park. When we are blessed with clear enough skies to see this far, it is magnificent! Some days, we experience inversions, which means that by the time you reach the top of the mountain, you are above the clouds of the valley. It really must be what Heaven looks like...gorgeous snow-capped, sun-kissed mountain peaks reaching out of an ocean of clouds! It's breathtaking! Yesterday, I snowboarded all morning, then worked all afternoon-that's what happens when you work in a resort town- a day on the hill isn't always vacation! It's actually a wonderful balance because I truly enjoy my work as a massage therapist and the juice feast is really sustaining me through all this activity. Although, today I just lasted 2 hours in the deep, yummy powder before I was beat. My knee was feeling it a bit from yesterday and I have been getting up at 6 am every morning to get my juices and smoothies made for the day. Alas, I had a ripe avocado and made a green soup that I liked today. I'm glad because I had a strong appetite after so much physical activity. You'll see how much I consumed today...
  • 32 oz lemon, cayenne water w/ 1 tsp Sulphuzyme
  • 2 qt celery, kale, cuke, apple, chard, radish, sprout, ginger
  • 2 qt green smoothie (frozen strawberries and blueberries, banana, lacinato kale, Vitamineral Greens and Earth (in separate smoothies, they create yin and yang!), spirulina, chlorella, bee pollen, flax oil, wolfberries, dulse and water)
  • 1 qt tomato, kale, avocado, sweet orange pepper, basil, jalapeno, garlic, kelp, himalayan crystal salt
  • 10 oz grapefruit, mineola
  • zeolites, 3 drops x2, digestive enzymes 2 caps x3, 1 cup breakstone tea, 1 cup sleepytime tea
  • snowboarding! 2 caps VitalzymX, 2 caps Intestinal Movement Formula, weight: 122 lbs
FYI:All of the produce I eat is organic, with just a few exceptions (occasionally bananas and avocados). My health and energy is great, but I have to say I have had alot of gas lately. Last week was the 1st week I haven't had a colonic and I haven't been doing enemas lately because I'm still having great bowels movements 2-3 times a day, so I'm going to try to get in for a colonic in the next few days and keep my awareness on alert for what might be causing it-kind of dampers the sexy factor! Also, I recently heard that consuming too much fructo-oligo-saccharides (FOS) can cause lots of gas. The Sulphurzyme I have been taking has MSM, FOS, Ningxia wolfberry powder and stevia. The recommended dose is 1/2 tsp, but since I haven't gotten any plain MSM (in which the therapeutic dose is 1 Tbsp 1-3 x/day), I was 1st taking 1 Tbsp of the Sulphurzyme, but then just 1 tsp for the past week or two. I will try lowering my dose of that and get an additional MSM supplement.

My love and I are about to snuggle in for the night with a movie and he's making popcorn right now-damn, it smells good! Luckily, my yummy tea tastes good too! Building new habits...
Sweet dreams! Kelly

As you were talking about your weight and incorporating green smoothies in so you don't lose to much weight, I was just wondering, How tall are you?

I'm already having to go on the modified feast on day 9. At 5' 8" also and 122, I just have to get in a bit more. So I added a blended soup yesterday. So good. Sort of like a gazpacho. Used bunches of cilantro as my greens and added tomatoes, cucumber, celery, jalapeno, garlic, lime, green onions and avocado. Put in the vita-mix so it was liquidy. Hope this helps in keeping from losing any more. I'm glad to see your comments of still using intestinal drawing. Didn't know if I had to get off that since I was adding more. Thanks for your blog.
