Day 9 -- Blip

May 4, 2008

Baby lambs quarters in my juice!

Well, today was a little blip in the journey.

I totally panicked about the constipation thing, I realize now. I had a headache a few days ago, and I didn't think twice about it. But constipation....wow! Interesting....

So, I did do some things today to get fiber...had a couple smoothies without straining them, and I did (gasp) eat some soaked prunes. But I stuck with juices for the most part and I think I will forge ahead with this now not-so-perfect juice feast.

Today I had:

  • water with lemon and MSM
  • 1 qt smoothie: orange, banana, water with 1 Tbsp liquid chlorophyll
  • 1 qt juice: tomato, microgreens from thinning garden (with itty bitty lamb's quarters!! Yeah!), celery, cucumber, cilantro, lime, fermented veggies, hemp oil, orange pepper, garlic, onion, water mixed with yesterday's leftover green juice
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil drizzled with raw honey
  • Raspberry tea
  • 6 soaked prunes and drank the soak water, too
  • ate a few pea sprouts and arugula microgreen from garden
  • 1/2 qt smoothie: juice from a couple oranges, strawberries, apples, soaked prunes and soak water, baby lettuce
  • wheatgrass in 1/2 qt water
  • juice of 2 oranges with 2 tsp bee pollen


I read more about enemas in a book called "Prescription for Herbal Healing" by Phyllis Balch. I liked her explanation of how, and also she recommended putting lemon juice in the water.

Ok...going to try to not focus on the constipation. Just do what I need to do (enemas, movement/exercise) and move on.

Speaking of exercise, we dusted off our rebounder and I did 10 minutes today, in small segments (2 minutes, 3 min, 2 min, 1.5 minutes, 1.5 minutes). Ella and I took turns on it, and I stretched a bit while she jumped. I took a tiny walk, too.

I always chuckle when I see the lambs quarters growing up--to think for so many years I just pulled them out of the garden and tossed them into the compost heap (after saying I was sorry to them, of course!). Before you told me, I never knew they were edible!

It sounds like you are feeling a lot better today! :-) Yay!

Lots of love to you!
