Back to where I started. I am feeling very good. But I was a bit "weak" feeling. Not weak as if I can't do anything, just like I needed rest. So, going back to that bumper sticker, I figured the seven days without solid food could make one weak as well. I was working hard all week and deserved some rest. So, most of my day was doing just that. In the same theme as the bumper sticker, if God found it useful to rest on the seventh day, why not me? It worked out nicely ("And it was good").
To prove I wasn't so much "weak" as "in need of rest", I asked my wife if she wanted to do some yoga. As you recall (if you've been reading all the posts) I've been able to do about half the session. Now, it is pretty intense yoga, but I used to be able to do a couple sessions back to back. Today, with my wife by me, I was a bit more motivated to finish. She was a superstar and we both finished. I feel the same way (meaning, like I need rest), but I was strong enough to get through a strenuous yoga session.
In the end it is all good. And, like my wife giving me encouragement to finish our session, I will try to encourage all of you out there. It is the end of my first week and I am stoked up! My weight is down a bit again today, but I really am doing five 16oz smoothies a day. I put in a LOT of fruit and veggies and hemp seed. I'll keep on going as I am until I think I have a reason to worry.
My best to all of you and I wish you nothing but sweet juice, fast cleanup, piles of encouragement and resounding success.
