    So - I'm back!



    I've been on my pilgrimage in Spain for a little over 3 weeks, I walked over 300km, not a lot, but my plan was to walk only half a day and then relax, read and think over things the next half of a day. Loved it. It was really great, I had time to think, I love walking and being lost within my thoughts. I met a lot of people from all over the world and some of them I will always consider my family. It was a nice holiday. But I cought a bad cold at the end, so I was quite miserable the first week after I came back home, coughing and sneezing all the time. I'm okay now, I'm already at work for almost two weeks and I really feel like juicing! So I bought all the produce yesterday and I'm starting a juice fast tomorrow for 25 days. I would do 30, but I'm going for a long weekend in Italy on day 27 and I don't want to juice there. :) I have to catch up with what was written in the last posts, but for now - I'm glad to be back! Missed you all!



    And here are some photos from my Way of St. James pilgrimage.

    Yeah. I only did one section of it this year. The first time I went, a little over 10 years ago, I did the whole path, over 600 miles. Then I did around 300 miles 2 years ago and around 200 miles this year. I would like to do the whole path once again in one go, but that's 5-6 weeks of walking and I can't get so much holiday time at work. Well, at least my joints are really happy that I can't get so much holiday time at work, they were complaining a lot this year. :)

    Today is Day 7. I made enough juice for today will make more when I get done here for tomorrow. Going to make a Cantaloupe Cocktail as 2 juices will have to decide what to make as well to go along with it. Maybe a beet/orange juice as I did get ingredients for that as well. Only down 0.2 lbs today after 2 stagnant days. I am sure changes are going on in my body and the weight loss will come eventually.

    I went back to school to get my Bachelors and Master's degrees in my 50's, 34 years after getting my A.A. nursing degree. It was hard and I took a program where you took 1 class every 8 weeks, so you had just one thing to concentrate on. It was hard because I was working and had my property to take care of and meals to cook. But it was worth it to me even though I only worked a few more years after I graduated. It was good for my brain and mental outlook and I actually miss the classes and so took a nutrition course, and a few fun courses since then. Set your mind on A's and you will get A's. I set my mind on B's at first, and when I got them, I decided to switch it up and shoot for A's. I made the honor roll time after time each semester. Do not take too many classes at one time as it is overwhelming, I did that the first semester when each session lasted 15 weeks, and the class interactions took a lot of time so it made it harder to study with my busy life. As time went on the classes were shortened and more intense, which was easier still than taking 2-3 classes each semester. When I graduated, the classes were shortening again to 6-7 weeks depending on the course.

    Start looking into practices to help relieve your stress, i was always stressed out too. I feel much better after reading a book called Quiet Life, Epic Life by Matthew Ferry. I wish I had read this a long time ago! It is available free online and also on Amazon on a kindle Quite Life Epic Life There is the link to the site.

    Day 5 is done on to day 6 no weight loss this morning. I hate when it is slow like this! I like to see at least a 0.1 weight loss!



    Yes less joint pain is a result of juicing and when it starts to creep back after a juice fast I am heading right back to really watching what I eat avoiding all processed food even vegan. I head for raw fruit and veg. occasional grains, and potatoes and beans.

    When I wake up in the mornings I notice that there is less joint pain. Yay!



    I never really thought I could curb my appetite by drinking water or juice. Now when I felt a twinge of hunger I drink 8-16oz of water.



    I weighed myself on Day 2 of juicing and then again on Day 4 and was 2 lbs.



    I am not sure if I am doing this 100% correctly but if I continue on it is better than stopping and going back to eating and starting all over again. “Consistency over time = results”

    Today begins Day 5 so I am 1/4 way through my 20 day fast at then end of the day! Wow it is going by quickly! I am down 5.2 lbs from the start and will probably go more than the 20 day planned juice period as I hate to go off until I reach my goal. I will be making some juices when I get off of here. No side effects from the transition to juice just feeling tired, none of the lightheadedness, dizziness, or weakness that i have normally experience. Life is Good!

    I am working from home this week due to some major office renovations. I thought it would help keep me distracted as I juice but I am finding the opposite to be true. But I drink glasses of juice, lots of water, broth and nibble on a celery stick which I am learning to like the taste of.



    Yesterday I went to a Zumba class. I thought I would have no engery but I was surprise to see that I did.



    Day 2 of juicing is here and I hope it goes as well as yesterday.

    Thank-you iamFIT, I took that picture hiking with my nieces in Montana de Ora State Park on the cliffs in the San Luis Obispo area of California, on May 11.



    Today begins Day 3! I do have to go to the store sometime today. I have a leftover Yumi juice for breakfast this morning so I decided to juice up that pineapple (at least half of it) this morning for 2 servings of Hawaiian Pear. I feel pretty good today I really had a stomach ache come on suddenly last night then ended up 3 x in the bathroom before bed time. I never had this result with a juice fast in the past! Makes me fear going too far from home today because I also had 2 episodes this morning. I suspect it is from the herbal supplements I bought to take with the juice fast, (herbs to improve cleansing of the organs), and the last one of the day is for the intestines. It did not bother me at all day 1, so we shall see if there are more problems or a recurrence tonight. My weigh is down 1.8 lbs today which is a drop of 5.2 lbs from my first weigh in but I suspect would be 3.2 lbs since I weighed in after drinking juice and water day 1. (Wish I hadn't done that.) Going to make juices this morning while drinking the last of my Yumi. Then I will see if I can get by until tomorrow to go to the store. I think I have enough ingredients to make 6 servings of juice 4-5 for today and 1-2 for tomorrow.



    I am still walking, however I have had a lot of periods where it hasn't been as much as last year, I think I am behind where I was last year but I have had some really good days thanks to my fitbit. I get involved in a lot of challenges and i want to be at the top of the achievers! So far in the Run the Year challenge I have gone 1148.91 miles of the 2019 miles so I have 870.91 miles left to go. In the Amerithon Challenge (running across the U.S.) I have gone 2662.7 miles oft 3521 miles so I have 858.3 miles left to go. This one has no end date, and with the milage to go so close, I should finish close for both. Which is not a good thing as I get more lazy in the Winter months so i run/walk less. In both races, walking, bicycling, and running miles count to your total, and there is another spot where you can add in miles for exercise. I have been running and walking only.
