End of Raw Juice Fast

I can't tell you how good it is to be eating solid foods again. I went 7 days of just drinking raw juice.
I even drank my juice at a Halloween party with tons of food!
I'm very proud of my self control.
My main goal was to do a little detox and sort of reset my eating habits.
I wasn't doing this to lose weight, but I did lose 5 pounds (most likely water weight) and I lost about 1/2 inch around my stomach/hips, legs, and arms.
I was stoked when I saw the tape measure!

Now my determination to be healthy has only become stronger.
Knowing I went a whole week without giving into temptation tells me that I do have self control.
2 days after the juice fast I ate only fruits and vegetables, and now I'm adding dairy and meat products.
I'm going to eliminate most carbs from my diet (pasta, bread, crackers, chips, and candy, aka all the good stuff)
It's my belief that eating meat and fat is not bad for you. I explain why here.
But everything in moderation of course.
Read more about my juice fast here and here.

Halloween is never a big holiday for me, but my friend had a Halloween/Birthday party this weekend and it was really fun.

 I helped make these cupcakes the night before the party.

I was a pink haired, zombie cowgirl. I have never done a gory, bloody costume ever before, so I thought it would be something fun to do. I'm making up for all the years I didn't get to go trick or treating :) (I still love you mom!)

I love that pink wig!
