Day 7 Feeling Fantastic!

Today I will have 4 juices.  Tomorrow I can walk outside of the center (not allowed while,fasting.)

I will head back to the magical Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery.  I felt transported to the 1850’s.  It’s completely in a natural state.

Day 4 The Pleasure Trap

They talk a lot about the pleasure Trap and how our will to make healthy food choices has been co-opted by the super stimuli of salt ,sugar, and fat.  That our diseases are caused by dietary excess rather than deficiencies.  Interesting

Day 3

Was able to attend the lecture,cooking class and will go to chair & restorative yoga tonight- way better than yesterday.

There are a lot of people here that look very ill and a lot of quite heavy people.  A mix of ages.  And 3 dogs 🐶

Day 1 Water Fast

7:30 AM AND I already lost 5 lbs!  Too bad I also already am trying to not entertain my “what the heck am I doing here” thoughts.

Probably good that I had another miserable gut pain sleep.  Was it the sneaked final kombucha or GF cookie or all of the vegetables?  Am hoping I didn’t keep my suite mate up all night with my wanderings.

Day 1 True North in Santa Rosa

I will be here for 19 days.

Hopefully will start the water fast today but only if the Dr recommends it after my appointment.

If I hadn’t had my “last” pecan ball, Tanquery Tonic, and Double Decaff Breve Latte I could have begun yesterday.
