thehonestpalate asked: It's definitely something I've considered. This cleanse seems to have less sugar than others, since much of the juice is vegetable juice... I don't think I know enough about how much my general sugar intake is to compare -- but it is normally quite low. I agree with your suggestion, but this also a decision made from convenience and solidarity with a friend who is also joining me in the cleanse. Definitely something I'd try if this goes horribly wrong.
Fair enough. Vegetable juice sounds better for sure. I don’t know if my answer would be without bias though since I’m kind of terrified of sugar (diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last year, thank you gammy genes) but I think trying a fast first might be the safest move. Good luck with whatever you go for though!
I think I have an irrational fear of skulls. Although they have to be presented in a certain way, like at the end of Metal Gear Solid 2. Uuugh! That mixture of death and life, it’s not meant to be! I adore death imagery too, I wonder what the doctor will say…? What a blog post.
It’s a long clear path and the wind is behind you. Everything’s right - it’s toasty outside, the bike is completely functional, the music is kickin’ rad and you’re feeling fantastic. It’s a thin path, but you overtake people, the cars overtake you; you take care to pass oncoming fellow cyclists, but smiles are exchanged as the passing occurs, so you look forward to the next one. And then, you enter the woods. The exhilaration of travelling down the hills. It’s immense! You’re going to experience it again and many others have enjoyed the same ride but that’ll never dissipate the thrill.
You have to go back all the way in the wind though, that’s a pain
I need to focus on my avenue for which my future lies. So I need to knuckle down and focus on my course as best possible; is this what it takes to define oneself for the future? Granted, I expect to have a job at the end, no point building my hopes up for something magnificent yet, something I do far too often. I’m not living a pit of despair and failure though! Erm
I need to pay attention to my plans for this year. Namely:
-Don’t drive away your most important friends! They are great people to you regardless of their flaws.
-Possibly get a new job? Not necessary, more to do with taking a step in the right direction. At the very least, apply for local jobs of interest.
-Do more acting classes! There’s still a shell that needs to be broken.
-Play the guitar more! Write more 30 second or 1 minute songs. Possibly post them online, like you would if you were 10 years younger.
-Get fit! Your condition is with you for life, ulcerative colitis is unique for all who have it but you could have it a lot worse, self!
If I can stick to this plan I will consider the year a success. I can’t envisage a holiday but that’s a sacrifice I may have to take.
It’s delicious, it’s amazing. I’m not the biggest tea drinker in the world, I’m doing my best to cut out caffeine and I’m a firm believer that ‘alternative’ versions of other products are just inferior. Diet Coke, fake meat (quorn/tofu versions of food et cetera) and in this instance, decaffeinated tea just aren’t the same. Having tried only diet coke I’ve jumped to that conclusion, ahem. My main argument is that having these alternatives do no favours in weaning you off the ‘real’ thing, I’m just thinking of those doomsday scenarios where you don’t have access to the wide variety of alternate goods found in large supermarkets.
Peppermint tea is a treat. Don’t leave it to brew too long, otherwise the subtle flavour is no longer subtle. I cannot think of an enlightened way to present this, but it makes my bowels feel more normal. Regular! I wish we had a generally more mature view of bowel/abdominal health over here, everyone poos.
I’d like to sing my praises for lemon & ginger tea, which additionally helps ail a sore throat, as well as keeping a healthy one in good form.

I like Maypoles! The stripy stick pierces the sky as children dance around in unison. It’s like some sort of tribute to a god of the sky.
