19th day of my juice fast. I feel like I can go on forever.
I’ve lost 12 lbs so far. The jeans are becoming loose on me and my tummy is flat. What an orgasmic feeling.
Freshly squeezed apple + grape juice is heavenly!!! It’s one thing that I look forward to every day.
I’ll come out of my fast next week and will miss this fast so much. I am treasuring every moment of this detox.
Jay from Hedquist Productions called me and invited me for a voice-over audition in Mandarin. This project is for a ”motion comic” style animation- Iron Man, in Mandarin.
I was invited to audition for Pepper Potts’s role which only has a few lines of script in this short animation.
I told Jay, “Sure, sure.”
Friends might see me as a confident, friendly and outgoing person. Well…. I am actually very shy!
I can dance, but I can’t act. I’ve pretty much decided to chicken-out.
Then, Jay called the second time… That’s when I told myself a promise is a promise. I got nothing to lose, might just as well go have fun and gain some new experiences.
It was my first time being in a recording studio. I had the headset on and I could listen to my own voice. It was so cool!!! Jeffery directed the voice-over and he made me feel comfortable to play my role.
I am glad that I did it and am proud to say that “I tried something new today.”
14 days have passed by since I started my detox. I’ve lost ten lbs so far and am feeling great!
Every day is the usual fruit and veggie juice … it’s definitely boring. I tried not to watch cooking shows and see any food photos. Keeping myself busy also helps me from thinking about food too much.
I am not writing a fasting journal this time. I wrote a detailed one back in 2006. Here’s the link http://absoluteliving.blogspot.com/.
Karan and I have been fixing 104 West Jefferson for the past two months. We hired Bob Kiefer as our contractor. It has been such a pleasure working with him.
I’ve learned so much in this project. When all the people were enjoying their weekends and nights, we had to run to Menards so many times to get construction supplies. Also, during precious lunch time, we had meetings with contractors to be on top of every detail. We didn’t cut any corners at all and that makes me feel great. The renovation is finally done and the open house will be tomorrow and the day after, 1-3pm.
The house looks amazing. I am so proud of myself.
I am looking forward to getting my hands on the next project soon.
Here’s a copy of the open house flier. I will post some before and after photos when I have some time.
Open House 104 West Jefferson 3/27 & 3/28 1-3pm
Today marks the fourth day of my 30 day long detox.
This is the fourth time I am doing it. It doesn’t get easier every time.
I already lost five lbs. Yay! My body feels light and my mind feels sharp. See, how our bodies can function more efficiently without spending energy processing all the junk in our stomach.
Somehow days pass by slower when I am in a detox program. I like it that way. Feel like I have more time for everything.

Finally had the courage to watch The Cove. Oh boy, it’s hands down the #1 horror movie of the year.
My heart has been deeply saddened by the ignorant and greedy human beings who keep repeating the same mistakes over and over.
How can one swim in dolphin blood? Which species would be the next victim when dolphin slaughter has been stopped (one day, yes, one day!)? The real threat to this Earth is called “Human Beings”. We need to fix ourselves and save our souls, one day at a time.
LOVE THE DOLPHINS, NOT THE $$$
To the film crew, I wish to express my gratitude for their brave action and devotion to tell the truth. Thank you for offering us a glimpse of hope to humanity.
