I love prunes and bananas

Hello all you crazy bloggers. What's going on? Thursday was my first day of eating food and it was a wild one!! haha I started my day off with apple juice and then had 6 ounces of soaked prunes. Now, when you think of 6 ounces, it doesn't seem like a lot, but it's an entire bag of prunes that you buy at the grocery store. I was really excited to eat them though- I mean, it was real, living food- that's ALL that mattered haha My sister had a disgusted look on her face as I ate them in the living room. Halfway through eating them, I felt my stomach gurgling, but I finished them off anyways. What a bad idea!!!

A few hours went by, I went to the gym, came home, and read a little bit of Cosmo magazine. I also weighed myself and surprisingly, I lost 4 pounds. I was shocked and kind of mad because I really didn't need to lose weight. That wasn't the purpose of my juice fast. I'm assuming that it was toxic waste so I guess it's not a bad thing to lose, but oh well. Later, I had to go to work, of course, and this was just a nightmare. I got to work at 6 and was scheduled in the women's department which is very far away from the bathroom. I pleaded with the cashier in the kid's department to switch with me and by the grace of God, she did. And thank God she did. I went to the bathroom 8 times in 3 1/2 hours. The prunes went right through me and it felt so good. The people in the bathroom stalls around me probably wanted to faint from the smell. I used to never go poop in the bathroom because I didn't want people to hear, but over the past few years, I could give a CRAP about what anyone thinks.

Hopefully, Friday night won't be as bad as Thursday. I have a feeling that it will be though haha But nobody will work for me. Sears employees aren't THAT nice. I want to go bowling for some reason so that's where I'll be if I'm not at Sears.

I also wanted to show you guys this AMAZING banana shirt that my mom bought me. In case you didn't know this, I usually eat 3 bananas every day. I am obsessed with them, so this shirt is now one of my favorite shirts!! Isn't it sassy?? I wore it to the gym and got a few stares, but I don't care... it's HOT!!!!

Oh, man, public washrooms are the worst. But like you, I gave up caring when I worked in retail and didn't have a choice!

Hilarious post! I'm glad you're taking your tummy issues in stride!

Cool shirt, banana girl! :)

I used to have the biggest public restroom phobia, but working on the road has been extreme exposure therapy!!

Vegetation said...

Love the banana shirt and you have me freaking out here with all your public toilet stories :P I'm such a public toilet-a-phobe! (heck, I'm a toilet-a-phobe full stop!)

Brandi said...

I'd have to agree with the others, that I would not have the toilet courage you do! You're hilarious.

jessy said...

You share the nicest details o feel the same, but if youve got to go youve got to go.
Love the tshirt tho

Jen aka Jewbacca said...

you ate a BOX of prunes AFTER a cleansing juice fast? what are you, crazy?!?!? i mean, i love prunes too but not after a cleansing fast. there probably wasn't anything left in your adorable little body to cleanse! that banana tshirt is an andy warhol design that donned the cover of a velvet underground album. nice taste, hon.

I ♥ puggies said...

I love how honest you are! Especially when you said it felt so good to poo.... because it does! I love to poop!!! I think that is one of the best things about my vegan diet. and of course kindness to all living creatures, but you know what I mean.

Kelly said...

You absolutely crack me up, as always. :-)

Joie de vivre said...

Oh man, go easy on those prunes!!! You've given me my laugh of the day though. Thanks!

Gina said...

The weight will probably come back on as you add more food. If not, then it was weight you didn't need, right? I know how you feel, I usually want to keep all the weight I have. It wasn't always that way though, so its a good feeling. Don't know if that makes sense...not that is important if it does, hehe.

I love your banana shirt!! I am a big banana fan also, although I only have one a day, usually.

miss v said...

i love nanners too! and your shirt is from an amazing album by the velvet underground. a la andy warhol. if you haven't heard the album, you should give it a shot!

Lovliebutterfly said...

The banana t-shirt is great! I wished I had your courage in public restrooms! Hahaha! Must be quite cool too!

Jenn said...

You never cease to crack me up. I can't believe you did a juice fast, then ate a pile of prunes. Glad you were stationed near the bathrooms, indeed!
LOL on the banana shirt. You youngins need to brush up on your punk and get some Velvet Underground stat. There she goes again...

Megan said...

im so glad the juice cleanse helped get out all that toxic nastiness! i think i am going to do one when i go home for spring break, i hear its sooo challenging but feels so amazing afterward.

& i LOVE how honest you are about the pooing situation!! i barely PEE in public because i feel like people are listening lol. loves youuu!

Michelle said...

Jo,

All that weight you lost came my way. :( Well, I guess I could make these prunes and I'd lose that weight real quick. Lol! :) I do love bananas and prunes though!

Stacey said...

You're so silly! Oddly enough you're making me want to try a juice fast. I just don't know if I'd do the prune thing afterward. :P LOVE your banana shirt! That's the Velvet Underground (Andy Warhol) banana, right?

Bethany said...

your mom buys you the coolest stuff.

those prunes do look nasty. but I like them.

I'm sure that woman in the kid's dept was delighted to hear about your bathroom needs :)

YOU ARE TRULY STUNNING! EVIDENCE THAT A RAW FOOD DIET PROMOTES HEALTH AND VITALITY ... BECAUSE YOU ARE POSITIVELY BEAMING! but about HUMUS ...? HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO SPROUT YOUR GARBANZO BEANS FOR ABOUT THREE DAYS AND THEN MAKE YOUR HUMUS W/ RAW TAHINI?? THIS RECIPE YIELDS YOU A BATCH OF RAW/LIVING BEAN DIP FOR YOUR RAW VEGGIES!! A LITTLE DIFFERENT TASTING BUT YOU COULD EASILY LEARN TO LOVE THIS ALTERNATIVE BECAUSE IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL SO LIGHT AND VITAL!
