One Week Countdown

Ok. This is it!  I will have my juicer this weekend so I've decided that I'm going to start my fast next Friday.  I know, seems like an odd day to start a diet....on a weekend.  I've read, though, that it takes about three to four days to get through the hunger, fog, and irritability.  I'm hoping that by Monday most of the detoxing will be complete and the symptoms will be much less.

UPDATE:  I now have the juicer and juiced a variety of fruit (it's Saturday, June 15th).  It was actually pretty good.  I think I'm going to start taking at least one juice with me to work this week to help my body start adjusting to the process.

I'll be gathering veggies and more fruit this week and setting up my juice bar.  Per my brother's advise, on Friday I'll start with vegetable juices.

We had family over tonight and had pulled pork sandwiches.  I heard David telling Mom after dinner that we needed to drastically change the food in the house.  I think this will be a transition for her, too.  One of the ways she makes you feel welcome is to feed you.  It was the same with her mom.  It's  hard to break tradition.

I'm proud of David, though.  He ate tonight but I noticed it was mostly salad with oil and vinegar dressing!
