Beeting the Odds: 9 Day Body & Mind rEvolution (Day 8)

Day 8: Back to Raw

So here we are on day 8, after a revitalizing 5 day juice fast. If you’re experiencing what I am you should be glowing and feel awesome!

That said, today was interesting in that I didn’t run into the kitchen for food immediately when I woke up. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even eat my first “food” until about 3pm today! I’m still in the mindset of practicing patience and I truly was not all that hungry for food, believe it or not. So this morning, I started with my normal routine of tongue scraping/rinsing/brushing, yoga stretches, psyllium husks, lemon water and…you guessed it…juice. I finally had a smoothie and then later indulged at a local Organic Vegan Eatery by the name of G-Zen. I had some amazing 100% raw dishes there and even a raw desert (what the heck!).

Tomorrow will mark the end of this detox but not the end of these great habits. They really do crowd out the bad ones; especially when you just let go and don’t resist. I learned this 2 years ago when I practiced this program on and off for a total of 45 days. If you’re desperately looking to change your ways; this plan will do the trick! You can find more details on eating raw in my Day 2 post.
