This past Friday was my Dad's birthday, so I went down to Port Charlotte to visit him. I spent 11 hours in the kitchen on Thursday so that I could have everything I needed to go visit him, spend the night, and stay until after lunch on Saturday, plus I deep cleaned my juicer parts to help it hold up under all this juicing, and I helped Nicole fix dinner since it was her night to make dinner and I just hadn't been in the kitchen enough! :-) I just kept saying to myself, "tomorrow you can rest!". And rest I did! My Dad and I basically just sat on the couch and talked the whole time! I was supposed to take him out for lunch, but he just wanted take out pizza, so we stopped by a health food store a couple blocks from the Pizza Hut and I got a veggie wrap, and then we picked up his pizza, and came back home to the couch! :-) My eyelids grew heavy a few times, so I took a couple of short naps - what a luxury! I told him it felt like MY birthday!! It was SO easy to stay on my diet schedule - it was awesome! Normally I'm behind, like today I wound up being 3 1/2 hours behind so I had to cut out a couple things (1 juice and 1 D flax B dose) in order to get the rest of everything in. I just get too busy and can't do it all - but sitting on the couch was AWESOME! :-) And we just had a great time talking about EVERYTHING! It was really nice.
I drove home Saturday afternoon, walked in the door and immediately started juicing again. I've been juicing a 25 pound bag of carrots (along with spinach and kale and celery and beets) every other day for the most part, so today I juiced a bag and a half (thanks to help from Nicole and Nathan and especially Tim!!). I'm thinking that I shouldn't have to juice again until Thursday!! I won't know what to do with myself! :-) Hope everyone is having a great week so far! Blessings!
