Reboot 2, Day 5

One week almost down.  At least the work week is over!  Kinda been a rough day since my current property owner 'accidently' double drafted my account for this month's rent.

Not good.

I also made the nastiest, non-beet based, drink yet... it involved parsley.

I will try to remember and get Brian to do another video for our YouTube channel this weekend.  It's been too long since our last one for sure.  I've also decided to cut my juice-only fast short to 15 days... with the remainder (15) being 80% juice per day.  I'm exercising more and need the energy to do it.  Not to mention that I'm not particularly feeling the good vibes I got from it last time.  I'm fairly comfortable with where I'm at now and how much I've accomplished since August.

Reboot 2, Day 4

Well yesterday was a poop.  That's right... a poop.

I felt generally dysphoric and uncomfortable for the majority of the day.  Not hungry... just anxious and uncomfortable.  I'm feeling a little better now, this morning, but I may end up changing my plans from a 30 Day juice fast to a 10-Day... I can extend later if I really start feeling better about it.

The fact of the matter is that I already had a good reboot and now I'm just doing it to lose weight.  Although losing massive amounts of weight is a primary side effect to rebooting... it's not why one should reboot altogether.

I may cut this one short and just adopt a high-micronutrient based diet for a while.  Even if that means making juice for half of my meals and sticking to legumes/nuts/seeds for the rest.  I really shouldn't be in any rush to drop the pounds.. it took me a decade to put them on.

I'm real happy with where I've gotten and look forward to dropping more until I reach my ideal weight...

...which may not take just a month.

Reboot 2, Day 3

Hey Folks!

Day 3 and feeling better.  Had a good night last night and looking forward to the weekend already... just gotta get over this hump day!  I think i'll start today with a light kale and apple juice with a shot of ginger.  I'll probably just end up swinging by a Whole Foods today for lunch to get another juice.

Just got to resist that temptation to grab a slice of pizza while I'm there lol.

So here we are, continuing on strong.  I should also mention I took the new bike out to a local path for a 7-mile ride.  Boy was that fun.  Fun except a little spill right in front of a cute girl.  That's my luck for ya lol.  Oh well, it was a fun trip and I think I'll make it a regular visit since it's so convenient to the work HQ.

Until next time... Auf Wiedersehen!

Reboot 2, Day 2

Here we go!  It's Day 2 and going strong.  I didn't have enough juice yesterday and probably not enough water. That might explain the strange dreams from last night.

In addition to the strange dreams I also woke up a few times feeling something I can only describe as a form of consternation.  I would also describe it as waking suddenly with that feeling you left the oven on at home while you're on vaction... so that wasn't all too fun.

Anyway, hoping today/tonight fair better for me.  Last night I wasn't very hungry and neither am I this morning.  Not sure why, but maybe I'm over the hunger already... or it hasn't sunk in yet.  Beats me.

Either way, here we are.  Day 2.

Reboot 2, Day-2: 250lbs
