Prep for Day 1
ALOHA everyone! I am doing a JUICE FEAST and decided to blog about my experience.
I have been doing research the past few days on Juicing. I found this guy on YOUTUBE named Echo Roberson aka Brother Echo. I have been fascinated by his videos. I love his personality. I have connected with him as if I know him on a personal level just through watching his videos. The website is Rawsangha.com
I have decided to juice and incoroporate the ever so popular MasterCleanse into my plan. I plan on juicing for 7 days with no food. On the 7th day I will introduce foods back into my diet. As for today I have started a light prep for the plan starting full swing tommorrow.
So far I have had.... 2 pieces of Food for Life toast with all fruit jelly, 12 almonds, 5 strawberries, 12 oz mastercleanse lemonade, 12 oz juice ( apple, celery, carrot, lemon, kale) it was yummy! I plan on drinking 12 more ounces of mastercleanse lemonade, for my afterworkout meal I will have 6 oz chicken breast, raw spinach, almond butter and 4 strawberries. I may do another juice before bed. I have also taken 2 capsules with sea salt.
It is a cloudy, humid, cold day today so I am feeling pretty tired. I think I am going to take a 45 min nap before I go to the gym this evening.
Please allow me to elaborate the reasons for the cleanse. I do believe my body needs a detox as well as my mind for clarity. Time to take a break from all the preworkout and protein drinks. This old body is saying give me a break. Let's get back to raw basics and a squeaky clean inside! I do plan on doing more meditating and praying during the cleanse.
I feel disconnected from the earth, universe and all the people I am close to. I know I have emotional baggage I need to unpack and let go of. It is time to deal with what I have feared or pushed aside the past 18 months! Lets do this! I am ready.
I will blog often and especially when emotions come up that need to be addresed throughout the juice feast.
PEACE, LOVE AND UNITY
