Juice Fast, Day 10: Resolutions part II
Today is the last day of my first ever 10-day juice fast. To say it was easy would be absolute bull: the first five days were so hard, and a true test of my resolve. Most people that know me already are aware that if you dare me to do something, it is likely I […]Read More ›
Juice Fast, Day 9: The “Media Event at Uchiko” Challenge
I ended up not making my juice last night. Had plenty of juice to go all day since I got a half gallon of my Vampiro and half gallon of Love Cleanse earlier in the day. I ended up making a “house blend” of 1/3 Love Cleanse to 2/3 Vampiro. For extra effect, I rimmed […]Read More ›
Juice Fast, Day 8: The Continental Club Challenge!

That’s what I’m having for dinner tonight. Just as I was picking up my juice this afternoon, […]Read More ›

Juice Fast: Day 3…the Central Market challenge!

I feel a bit wiggy and out-of-sorts, spacey and goofy. But I am able to concentrate and have been working […]Read More ›
