Well, I have been doing the 7-day juice programme for 5 days now and am ashamed to say that I messed up a bit. Actually more than a bit…. I stupidly let some feelings and stress get to me and reacted to it in the same way that I usually do.. with food.. peanut butter to be exact….
Yes, I am annoyed at myself, but I will continue on with the rest of the programme as planned, and NOT trip up again. Hopefully I go through with the plan again in a few months time and pass through it without any slip-ups, but this time I must accept what has happened and move on. That’s all I can do.
Next time I’ll know, I need to relax. NOT to have the “diet mentality”, and that things happen. Stress is very much a part of all our lives. How we deal with it is another thing entirely. Many of us feel like shouting, screaming, blaming everyone around us for our own mistakes and often mentally and sometimes even physically abusing ourselves.
When we act in the wrong way ((blaming ourselves and others, giving up on problems, hitting things, shouting, however it may be)), we just make the problem worse!! I, for one, really need to practice not doing this. I must find a way to improve the situation, make it better before it’s really a big problem.
In the end, by doing un-constructive things, by digging ourselves an even deeper hole, we make it harder and harder for ourselves to climb back out. Out in the fresh air, where the problem is no longer a problem but an obstacle, the hole that we must learn not to fall into.
We must learn from our mistakes, dodge the pitfalls, work out how to improve the situation. And how?? By working toward something that IS worth our time. Instead of always looking down, worrying about that hole, look up, right up, for what you DO want to happen. Set yourself a goal, a target, so that you can forget about the hole and move up in life, to greater things.
This is my plan. To let go what I have done and to move on to improving the current situation. I made a mistake. I felt terrible about it. I’ve learned to not make that same mistake again. It’s happened. There is nothing that can be done to change the past.
So, onwards and upwards….
I will write a follow-up of the programme after the 7 days are up so that I can share with you the magic of pure, natural, fresh juices, accompanied by lots of juicy pictures, like this one:
In the books, Vale explains which nutrients, vitamins and enzymes are in the different juices, and this green beauty is literally brimming with vitamin B, calcium, vitamin C, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and loads of antioxidants. It is great for: cleansing the body, hlping to lower cholesterol and it even helps to protect against cancer!!
On top of that, it only has 4 ingredients!!
So, if you want to know more about juices, smoothies and my new-found juicy lifestyle, tune in next time!!
