Did you notice I said yesterday was Friday? Sheesh. I'm a tad out of sorts, unfortunately not from the fast. Oh, and did you notice I remembered my Html skilz? Duh. It sure ain't rocket science, no idea why I was drawing a blank the other day.
Day 9 April 30th Friday - well, I got back from the Dr and doing all the hospital admitting tests around 4pm. (We went in at 10 am.) My cancer screening blood test came back abnormal (it was over 200 and normal is us under 35) so there's a good chance I have a malignancy. Surgery is scheduled for Monday at 9am. I wont know whether I have cancer until I wake up from the surgery missing my entire uterus, or no cancer and just missing an ovary.Don't have much more to say about that right now. Anyway, onward-oh yeah... this is Day 9 and the Drs scale said 144. Nine days ago when he weighed me I was 150. So I lost 6 lbs in 9 days. Unlike many others I'm happy with that, however this is pretty bittersweet considering everything else. Since weight loss is not my only goal with this fast I want to continue with it. When I told my Dr about my fast he said it was fine. Needless to say I was surprised. . I was too freaked out to
have anything all day but when I got home I figured I should so I made a carrot apple, chard, cucumber juice. Last night around 10:30 I made a carrot sweet potato apple juice. Damn! It's my favorite juice so far.
Even though I suspect yesterdays popsicles made me hungry I made more today-apple/orange. Just had one and it was great. However I suppose an old shoe might taste good now?It's 9:30 and a little while ago I was really wanting something DIFFERENT. I'm tired of my homemade broth(it's not that good)so I decided to try some of this organic veggie soup base/boullion stuff I had. Blecch. Terrible. 86'd that. So getting desperate I dug up a packet of Liptons Onion Soup Mix. Disgusting, I know. I strained all the "onion" out of it and took a sip and it wasn't bad! So then I read the ingredients. MSG. Jesus. People still use that crap? So I dumped it, feeling rather deflated. Oh well...maybe I'll force myself to have some celery/carrot. Like most, I need to up the veggie juice.
I'll tell you one thing-it's a damn miracle I haven't broken down and had any wine or beer. I REALLY wanted one after the Dr/hospital thing today. I guess I just know it won't help at all. Maybe for a few minutes but that's it. No point in breaking the fast now anyway as I'd only have tomorrow to eat because Sunday I have to do clear liquids all day to prep for surgery on Monday. Anyway, I ate 4 more of the popsicles and just felt too apathetic and depressed to juice so I'm just goin' to bed. Good luck to all you juicers, MC'ers, and water folks!
