October Roundup

I can't believe the month in almost over! Where did it go? I feel like I was lost in a daze this entire month. I think I spend most of it sleeping, going to the bathroom, drinking green smoothies and various healing appointments. I suppose that's how it should work, although I must admit I had some wavering this month. My diet certainly took a hit, and although I added the smoothies and still ate my veggies, I got a lot of carryout and chocolate as well. I've also been hit or miss on my "daily" enemas, and have had some issues with some of the supplements. On the other hand, I still think I'm on the right track, I just need to refocus a bit. Tomorrow my Dad and I leave for Orlando and are gone until Halloween night. I've researched some vegan options, and have some cool places to try, but know there will be some fried goods and GHIRADELLI'S baby!!! I'm definitely getting my ice cream on there. I'm excited; the first two days my Dad will be in conference, so I'm going to explore, hopefully go to the art gallery one day and do some shopping another. Then Saturday and Sunday are Universal Studios, which includes HARRY POTTER THEME PARK!!! Woot!!! I'm pretty excited, I just hope I can keep up, but my Dad's offered to wheel me around some as well. I think it will be a lot of fun, and except several posts on my trip when I return!

I also plan on starting fresh when I return, doing Kris Carr's 21 Day Adventure Cleanse again, which I posted about in January. Basically you eliminate gluten, dairy, meat, processed sugar, and coffee. Drink lots of green smoothies or juice, grains, beans, some soy, you are allowed a small amount of dark chocolate to help with cravings, lots of veggies of course, etc. It's also a lifestyle shift, you are encouraged to exercise daily, journal, do 15 minutes of meditation, do some type of cleanse (i.e. enema, detox bath, infra-red sauna, etc) plus skin brushing and focusing on getting proper supplements. So I think this will be a good thing to get me back on track. I'm not sure the exact date I'll start, depends on when I can get to the store. I seem to have several appointments when I return, but hopefully sometime that week or weekend. I plan on making up suggested meal listings so I don't get trapped in that not knowing and end up grabbing something not as healthy. I also want to make sure I'm doing some of my supplements more regularly, and of course, those coffee enemas! I think the meditation and journaling are great tools as well, plus, everyone needs to exercise. I'm sure I'll blog about this as well.

So expect to see more posts in November. As I said, several on my Orlando trip, the cleanse, book reviews of Spirit Junkie and Polly Nobles cancer guide, information on coffee enemas and of course vegan Thanksgiving ideas.

Orlando here I come!!!

Let's Talk About Bowel Movements!

I borrowed this from The Wellness Warrior, who I think borrowed it from another source. Bathroom issues are fairly private and not something most of us gossip about with our friends. However, taking time to look at the poo and pee that you release can tell you some things about your health. This chart will give you a pretty thorough look at what your eliminations mean.

Have You Seen My Motivation?

This last week I've  been extremely unmotivated and lazy. It's not just fatigue, it's just an innate boredom and lack of desire to do anything. I think it has to do with the detox, it makes one's brain a bit fuzzy at times. Yes, still detoxing, and really, forever detoxing I'm afraid, yet glad. Ever since starting the coffee enemas I've been doing some crazy detox. And not just the obvious kind, but apparently my lymph system is opening up, and I've been coughing up mucus like crazy. I also am expecting any day now to start coughing up pieces of flesh. Yes, gross I know, but the tumors have to get out somehow and either they push themselves out like pimples (yikes!), come out through eliminations, or you can literally cough pieces up. Hopefully, I'm  eliminating some of them, but I have been coughing a lot and I do know people with tumors in similar locations have actually coughed up chunks of tumor. Freaking me out a bit, but I've been assured they will come out in manageable chunks and not choke me to death or anything.

All that aside, some of my motivation issues have been simply ridiculous. I managed  to get my sheets into the basement Saturday evening to wash them, but could not find the motivation to bring them back up and put them on my bed. So, I've been sleeping in the spare bedroom, yes, for the last three nights, and possibly tonight. My Dad has agreed to put the sheets on, but his availability is up in the air right now. I just can't get motivated to do it. It took me three days to force myself to get to the grocery store, and I almost left without spinach, the most important item on my list. I'm still not sure what all I bought, but it seems to be working so far.

Fortunately today I seem to be doing a bit better. I had some queasiness this morning, but after some serious releasing, it seemed to be better. I was able to make a delicious green smoothie, finish my book, do a detox bath, and SHAVE MY LEGS!!! Yes, this is extremely exciting news. I haven't shaved in months, maybe since May, because I haven't been able to bend over like that or sit and get out of a tub. So I've been living with hairy mountain man legs, and I have to say it gets tiring after awhile. It took some effort, but I now I wonderfully smooth legs. Feels good.

And now I am heading off to my colonics appointment for more releasing. Hopefully tomorrow I will be super motivated, although I'm not sure to do what, but I'll figure that out tomorrow.

Detox: My Week of Cleansing

It's been over a week since I've posted, and that's because I'm gone through some MAJOR detoxing. This past weekend I basically peed and slept. I didn't really eat, or do anything else. The thing is, I felt just fine. I've been through fatigue phases before where it usually is not the greatest sign. But this was definitely my body going through some serious changes. I lost almost 15lbs of the water weight (woot!) and am nearing my regular weight. My tumors continue to drop, and my body is healing like no crazy.


Things I've learned this week:
  • Sleep is incredibly healing, especially with an awesome bed and cozy pillow
  • I missed drinking green smoothies. Somehow I got out of the habit, probably when I was hospitalized, but I restarted this week. Peach, blueberry, spinach anyone?
  • Coffee enemas are really important. My initial experience were really horrible, but after reading some tips and getting everything set up right, it went fairly smoothly this time. And while I initially didn't get a lot of releasing, that night I seriously released up a storm. This is definitely part of my daily routine now. 
  • Detox baths are heavenly. Lavender essential oil, don't bathe without it. So calming. 
  • Meditation is very healing, especially when going through emotional detox. Keep the MP3 player close at all times.
  • The Vibe machine is also a great way to heal, and all you do it sit there, for six minutes, and let the energy raise your frequencies. 
  • It's important to also get your veggies in, but know that you can't always be perfect. 
  • Going out with friends is a really important part of healing. It's important to have amazing, supportive people in your life. 
  • Sadly, I also learned that some relationships, even with family members, are not always healthy. Sometimes we have to eliminate or at least temporarily break from these situations in order to protect ourselves and continue healing. 
I am feeling so much better. I've been more awake, getting my clarity back, and loving that I can wear regular clothes again!! I also have gotten back to reading fiction. My mind has been so back and forth that I've had problems focusing on reading, plus with all the water weight I could NEVER get comfortable. Now, I can cozy up in my reading nook and enjoy a good book.

I plan on catching up on some blogging this week and continue to focus on healing.
