We Had Our First Rack Pack Meeting

THURSDAY, JULY 10, 2008 07:57 AM

Day two of my juice fast and everything was fine

Kevin is very good with a bow and arrow
We went out on the lake
Kevin and Kevin S. did some risky tubing (okay not really because it was behind a pontoon boat)
Our niece, Lauren, pretended to eat rocks for breakfast

A lot has happened since the digestion post went up.
We went up north to Roger and Edie's cabin last weekend. It was a nice time. We went out on the pontoon boat and we played a lot of Uno (which I dominated by the way. As you can tell I still haven't lost my high regard for myself). I also did the 2 day juice fast. I'll tell you what; the first day is the hardest. After the first day, the hunger goes away and you feel like you could keep going longer. I could have, but I ran out of sprouts (which have the protein that keep you full and energized) I did it though. Yeah me!! Now I will decide if I am going to fast one day a week or maybe 2 days every other week.

We had out first ever Rack Pack meeting (Cancer support group for women in their 20s and 30s). It was successful and I am printing flyers for the group right now. We meet the second Tuesday of every month from 7-8:30 at Gildas Club in Royal Oak.
3517 Rochester Rd, Royal Oak, 48073 (just north of 13 mile). If you know someone under 40 with breast cancer send them our way. I will soon start planning our first fundraiser. It won't be until next year, but it will take a lot to plan it. If anyone knows any artists that would like to sell their stuff or donate some items for auction tell them to contact me.

What else is new??? I have about 80 items on the love list. It was so easy to get 80 I think I might go for 200. We'll see. I want them all to be meaningful to me. I don't want to just start looking at things and saying I love them. I love lamp. (Anchorman reference lol) That would get boring. I think I am out of my mental funk though. Back to being smiley, talkative and happy. We'll see what the next tests show and if I can withstand any iffy news. I get PET scan next week and those are certainly scary tests to go for. Have to remain positive and believe they will turn out fine.

I got to see a good friend, Debi, from Hippocrates who was visiting in Michigan. I also got to meet her wonderful husband and sister, Marty and Pam. They all mountain bike and were planning on going biking on the Paint Creek Trail. I was like "I bike the Paint Creek Trail all the time!!!" So, we all did the 20 mile stretch on the trail and it was a great time. Deb is doing awesome with the Hippocrates diet. Much better than I am. She likes to prepare food and I think that is the difference. I need to enjoy preparing some raw food treats more. She inspired me though. I'm getting a cook book today.

I also got to go to the Tigers game last night with my good friends Todd, Cheese (Jason) and Vanessa. What a game!!! I love being at a game and seeing a walk off homer. We were down 6-1 and came back to tie it. Then it was dark out and the fans completely turned around and Cabrera hit a walk off homer for the game and it was just electric. So much fun.

My garden is doing great. I have tons on banana peppers and bell peppers growing. My tomatoes are ripening. I think I will see squash, zucchini, and cucumbers soon. It is fun having a garden.

Well, I have to go get Avastin infusion. After that I can really start my day. It has been beautiful lately. We go to Chicago to see Jessica and Joe this weekend. I miss them and I'll make sure they get their fill of me while I am there so they won't miss me any more. If not I'll just stay there until they feel they can part with me for a while. : )

What do we want for the next Hippocrates topic?? I think body mind and spirit. Or we can discuss electropolution (EMFs). We could go more towards the diet stuff, but I think people are still digesting the digestion topic. (because they didn't chew 50 times lol) That’s my stupid nutrition joke for the day.

Okay, I'm rambling because I don't want to get ready for infusion, but I have to go. I'll get some new pics up soon.

Talk to you all soon. Enjoy the sun.
Shannon : )
