    Today is day 2. It's been hard to get in the right place mentally to do another 30-day fast, but I feel as if I am finally there. I need to get my act together and this is s great way to do it. My husband is juicing with me this time which is good and bad. It's good for the support, but we tend to enable each other, so if one of us is going to fall off the wagon, the other is often willing to hold hands and make the fall too. But, I think we have to do it together, but separate, if that makes any sense. I have to do this completely for myself and not let his decisions influence mine. The same holds true for him too I'm sure.

    The rut is easy to fall back into. I have to learn from my mistakes made after the last 30-day reboot. But as of now, it's on!

    Fantastic. The beginning days are so tough on your mind. The best way that I found is to realize that the juice is fuel. This fuel powers the body, anything else is fluff and not needed. There has to be some pain and struggle to truly appreciate the success. I have had my rough times in the beginning. The times where something would pop across the TV and get my hunger going. I fought them off. I watched several movies to get my mind right. Hunger for change, Fed Up, and That Sugar thing. This helped get my mind right. My wife never got into the juicing but has embraced the whole food lifestyle. Which is nice and certainly not the case the first reboot I did.

    This is for you... Just you. Unless you have someone force feeding you, the only battle you have is with your mind. The days go quick, the energy will envelope you and you will find that each day you continue this journey, you will feel and act better. I have lived this and am living it now. I have a long way to go and I know there will be battles ahead for me.

    Yeah... people still say 'You're still doing the juicing thing?' I say yeah... and I love it. And I do. As my pants get smaller I get a feeling of accomplishment and that excitement that can not be compared to a singular moment of food satisfaction. Nothing tastes as good as thin feels. That runs through my head. Keep that fire burning!

    I hate when that happens :) Yes, I am doing very good. I fell back into a rut a while back with regards to eating and then for the month of September I took charge. Juiced the entire month and now and mixing juice with whole foods. My mind was right for the reboot and now I am working on the transition. Which, thus far, is working out well. I am trying to cut out all processed food and sugar. I still have a ways to go, on where I want to be but my goals are in sight and I have not derailed. Yay me! And now Yay you! When are you starting?

    You got that right Sho... It's good to know that we have people that go through what we do and are willing to advise and support. We know it's not easy and a lot of people just don't get it.
