I am so hungry. The funny thing is I am rarely ever thirsty, I just never get to the point where I am thirsty and I can say I do NOT drink enough water, now today, I am doing a liquid diet, and I am so thirsty! Huh?! Doesn't make sense. I am looking forward to flushing my toxins tonight and tomorrow, only because then I get to back to being a normal human! Tonight and tomorrow are not going to be my favorite days but I'll have yet another detox behind me, and I will start anew come Sunday.
So, today all I had was apple juice, distilled water, green tea and chicken broth. You are all jealous...I know, today I drank like 1500 calories!
After last night's post, I read "Losing My Behind" which is another blog that I have mentioned before written by Cheryl. I was totally blown away by her kind words, her friendship, her honesty and her companionship during this trek. I truly am blessed by my friends. Each friend that I have is a collection in my beautiful bouquet of friends. On the same day I was blessed with a note of encouragement and love from one of my dearest friends Dawn. I met Dawn during my tour in Heidelberg GE. She and I became super close, but she has also been my ultra cheerleader who is always in my corner. It has been a good week of affirmations and I think I needed it to get through this week. :o) So thanks. My husband has also given me the kudos that I was needing. There are many more of you out there that are helping me make this work too. Thanks!
Today, I walked with Sammi, it is such a good outlet. We have a great time, chatting and before we know it we have walked 5 miles. Today, however...3 miles may be a stretch. I was not up to speed. Maybe it was the lack of food! ;o)
I am so blessed by my friends and family! Every time I hear someone say I couldn't do it...I think, I can! So I am glad I have made it! In every era in my life I have collected the most amazing people to be my closest friends. In my life there has been one or two key people for each era that have made me who I am. Until today, when I still have all of my friends from the past and all my new Minnesota friends, and I am excited about even more friends to come!
