Every day I'm juicin'
|Summer Green Juice|
Thankfully, the good outweighs the bad, at least right now, and the juice above happens to be extremely good, so I'm at work and I'm working and life is moving on, in spite of my lack of solid foods.
I love the teamwork that this fast requires. Scott & I make a really good team, and its nice to remember just how well we can work together when we have a truly common goal. See? Already the silver linings are making themselves apparent, after just a day or so.
Also: yesterday we went on a 4.5 mile walk through our end of the city, and it was great.
I've learned that I function best (and I'm sure this can be extrapolated outward to life in general) in a given situation when something exists that I can consider a "treat." Case in point: life became much easier to deal with yesterday when I realized I could make one of my favorite things in the world: strawberry-banana smoothies (strawberries, banana, ice), and not break the rules of the fast. Score! The result? I made eight of them yesterday, four for me and four for Scott. We're now out of a Costco-sized box of strawberries, and went through half a dozen bananas. But oh my lord, they are so good. Comfort food. Tasty goodness:

So: all in all, a really good weekend. How was yours? Happy Monday (yeah, yeah, I know)! ★
