Well, I’m getting down to the last few days of my juicing. Thursday will be my last day, and I just can’t even believe it. It’s tested just about every nerve in my body to resist temptations, and to remind myself that I’m doing this for a great reason. As recently as yesterday, I was still contemplating ending early – in fact, I was very close to eating a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. But, I’m determined to see this to the end.
To some, ten days seems like no big deal. To me, ten days was probably the biggest challenge I have put myself through. The experience has been eye opening, to say the least. It’s allowed me to question why I have an emotional relationship with food. I’ve been able to be around others eating and not give in just because I knew something would taste good. Juicing has given me incredible energy that I never really thought I could have. I’m cured of my caffeine addiction, and now I know what my body needs to feel healthy and amazing.
I had an off day yesterday (wanting grilled cheese and all…) but I’m glad I was able to get through it and wake up really positive today. I’m hoping to make the next two days just as positive.
It has finally happened, I am headed back to work. I have accepted a contract position with a telecommunications company and I begin my new adventure on Monday. I am excited about this new opportunity particularly because I did something I had never done before in my life - I didn’t worry. For whatever reason, when I left my previous position, I felt confident that there was another door that was going to open for me. I had never felt so strongly like the winds of change were blowing and that something special was coming my way, and it did, I just had to be patient. This is way beyond worth the wait and my head is still reeling from it all.
What does this mean for the blog? Not much at all. It means that I will be bothering you blogging in the evening after I have worked all day so there is an increased chance of sarcasm. ; ) It means that on occasion I may come home, look at my computer and say, “Um, I don’t think so.” Thus, making you wait one more day for my lousy much-desired post. Writing is something that I enjoy as much as pizza and making that ”Ohhh” face (You know that one… *throws head back…”Ohhh YES! Another slice of pizza!!!”), so, um, yeah, I won’t be going very far. ; )
Take It Or Leave It…
Intuition is a powerful tool, trust yourself. Sometimes we get a strong feeling about something and we ignore it only to find out later that we should have went with our original “gut” feeling. Like right now my gut feeling is telling me that I should have eaten breakfast this morning so I am signing off to grab some food! : ) Smile more, regret less.
