On November 30th I watched a video that Penni had posted on "Beckoning the Warrior Within," I knew in my "knower" that it was time to do a juice feast/smoothie feast for this girl! No more excuses! Decision made, tomorrow Dec 1st I would begin the detox.
Dec 1st did not start out to well at all for this detox, as I woke up an hour and half late, ugh! My first thought was hmmm... Tomorrow I will give up the coffee part of this detox. (excuse) I grabbed the coffee out of the refrigerator, grabbed the grinder, threw it in the coffee maker turned it on. Looked over a minute later and nothing, nothing at all! Therefore, I checked the obvious... Yup,coffee maker plugged in, yup, all lights working, yup, put the water in, NOTHING! As I am "jonesn" for my caffeine fix and getting all stressed out, a thought exposed itself, that this a miracle,an answered prayer! hmmm... Previously, I had asked God to really help me, to really make this juice/smoothie detox plan work this time, no excuses, no turning back. I also had asked for people to pray for me, to really get my back. WOW!
Well, to make a lonnnnnnggggg story short, I had a cup of Tea, In the meantime, while scurrying around, getting ready for work, I check out the Raw Food Rehab and read what Susan had posted: "Whenever a warrior decides to do something, he must go all the way, but he must take responsibility for what he does. No matter what he does, he must know first why he is doing it, and then he must proceed with his actions without having doubts or remorse about them."
- Carlos Castaneda
Then I read what Penni had posted:
Oh Yeah!!! This girl is all fired up, ready to conquer!
Then in record time I made two courts of green juice, grabbed copious amounts of veggies and fruit to take to work, (I have a juicer and blender at work as well) . What started out to be a disastrous day ended up being a miracle of a day! Love love love this!
Thank you for all the prayers and support! wooo hooo!
