Day 17 – Running on Detox

Today was a great day. I got to run with my son, something that i haven’t done in at least 10 years if not more. As you all know I was a runner in high school and college and ran the mile/2 miles and 3 mile races, along with Cross country. My son has now picked up running and has done well for someone who is doing it part time between basketball and other interest that he has. I decided today to venture out away from the treadmill and to run on the track– I invited Pharoah to come…

Day 16-Encouragement

Day 16-Encouragement Today was all about people around me who luvv me giving me words of encouragement from their hearts. It first starts with my wife, Gail. She has been in my corner forever. I call her my “great woman”. She is beautiful and while we deal with all the things that people who have been married for 18 years, I wouldn’t do it any other way. I did the Detox first of all for me. I was feeling sluggish, stagnant and Lethargic. …

Day 15 and 16

Day 15 and 16 As I move closer to the 21 day ending of the Detox I am looking at what I will do next. I am a carnivore at heart and I doubt that I will radically change that. I can see myself eating less meat and watching my fats, etc. I also can see myself not having soda. Before the detox I use to have 3-6 sodas a day, depending. My energy is more even keel from the reduction of caffeine and sugar. …

Day 13-Run as fast as you can for as long as you can

Day 13-Run as fast as you can for as long as you can The treadmill and Detox Tonight I was on the treadmill walking and watching The Steve Prefontaine movie that I never grow tired of. The movie to me is such as inspiration and demonstration of the individual and what we are capable of doing. The other night, for the first time in years. I was able to run 5 minutes at a very slow pace (probably a 15 minute mile pace), but I was encouraged because my hypothesis (if I lose some weight…

Day 12-The smell of coffee

Day 12-The smell of coffee Today I was awaken by the aromatic smell of coffee. The amazing thing is no one in my house drinks coffee, and my wife was not at home and my son was at school. As I lay in bed the smell got stronger, almost like someone had brought a cup of coffee to me while I was sleeping. I could smell the flavor, almost like a vanilla bean. It had to be one of my neighbors. A few days, after having been on…

Day 8, the Matrix

Day 8, the Matrix I found myself in a Matrix on day 8. It was one of those days that lasted longer than 24 hours. Have you ever had a day that, similar to the Twilight Zone, just seem to continue into the next day. That is what Day 8 has been like. I am actually into day 9 (it’s noon time). I tried to write Day 8 last night, but sleep kept calling me. And it seems like there was a variety of a thing to talk about, but sleep won over. Sleep is…

Day 7- In My Eyes

Day 7- In My Eyes Tonight I looked into my eyes for and traveled to a place I haven’t seen in a long time. It seemed like I was looking into a place filled with ebullience and joy. It was a very strange place and somewhat startling discovery. Many times the changes that we are looking for, weight loss, high energy, etc, may not be there. In fact until the moment I looked into my eyes. I didn’t think I was going to have …
