A Day in the Life of Joy Harari

It was requested by one of my readers that I give an example of a day in my life. I chose to write down a full day and share it with you honestly. Here we go:

I woke up at 6:00AM and thanked my Creator for another day, and then hung out in bed for half an hour reading emails and playing words with friends and scramble on my phone. You may think I was wasting time but they say word games are good for the brain :) . Anyway it’s fun!

Then into the bathroom where the first thing I do is test my PH with a PH strip (It was just the right color green this morning) yay!  I test it under a stream of 1st morning urine. If it’s ever too yellow, which signifies too acidic. I will try to figure out why. Is it stress, or how I ate?  To help remedy that I will have a few of my glasses of water with a spoon or two of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and stevia because it is so alkalizing.

 

The next thing I did was weigh myself.  I am sorry but that is one thing I can’t seem to give up (I have tried) although I don’t believe I allow it to rule my life any longer.  I don’t think it’s a good thing for most people to weigh in every day, just sayin’.

I then downed 16 oz. of clear delicious water to rehydrate after my long night. I got my exercise gear on and went downstairs to do my “Brazilian Butt Lift” video. Many days I go for a brisk walk outside, but the 27-degree cold made me choose to skip that today. I also love to do yoga when I can and I am trying to get some ballroom dance lessons going.

Some mornings I do a shoulder stand for 5 minutes on a special chair for inversions, they say it’s like an instant facelift.

I stopped off in the kitchen first and took fermented cod liver oil, a Mega flora probiotic pill and a ½ cup of Homemade fermented cabbage juice (it has so many probiotics, and is my new Obsession! It has been known to bust cravings too!) I also drank 1 tbsp. of Pure Synergy (a super nutritious green powder) in 8 oz. of water, and took a magnesium supplement.

 

I did my video (it was the sculpt class using weights). Upstairs again to shower and get dressed. Pray and breakfast.  Breakfast today was some organic blueberries and a cup of organic goat milk kefir, stevia and Ceylon cinnamon. I recently found out that Ceylon Cinnamon is the one that really helps stabilize blood sugar levels.  It’s a bit spicier than regular cinnamon and a bit pricier. I also had a big cup of tea with  pastured organic whole milk and stevia.

 

I did some chores around the house, called in some grocery orders and now to work.  E-mails, newsletters, clients and touching base with some family members (we have a lot of birthdays in January J) Happy Birthday Renee!!! Love You!

Drank lots of water in between all of that stuff. I try every day to set my timer for 15 minutes and Tap on something. It’s called my personal peace procedure. As an EFT coach I feel obligated to work on all my issues as well as yours! :)

 

12:30 my stomach calls. Time for lunch, which I like to be my biggest meal. In the middle of the day our digestion is strongest. I had a nice piece of wild salmon topped with mustard, coconut aminos and sesame seeds.  I made a salad with fresh organic curly kale, organic cucumbers, organic grape tomatoes, organic avocado, organic alfalfa sprouts, a drizzle of x-virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice Himalayan salt and pepper. Fermented sauerkraut to top it off…Hits the spot! MMMMMM.  See a picture above. I had a big cup of plain hot water about ½ hour after lunch.

 

At about 3:00 I did a one-minute meditation (breath in and out hard through the nose for 30 sec and then closed my eyes for 30 sec and feel the buzz, it’s awesome!). After that I had an organic apple with a tbsp. of raw almond butter, and some nori seaweed strips, and another big cup of tea.

Today was a busy day so I wasn’t so munchy, but every day I have a big plate of cut veggies available so that if I feel like I can munch. I always cut jicama, peppers, fennel, celery, carrots and cucumbers. My goal in life is to get my body used to just 3 meals a day and no snacking. Dr. John Doulliard claims it makes your digestive fire very strong. Maybe one day…

 

Time to cook dinner. Tonight we are having chicken soup, stringbeans with zaatar spice and kalamata olives, organic London broil with sautéed mushrooms and onions, a big mixed salad, and arame seaweed. Every day I have at least one serving of some type of seaweed. Can’t forget about those amazing sea veggies people!! I like to eat small portions of great food at night so I know it will digest well.

I ate in between seeing clients at about 6:30-7:00.  Before dinner I had a ½ cup of My fermented cabbage juice again. I like to leave time between my last meal and bed so I just had 2 cups of caffeine free tea with fresh mint, stevia and water.

I like to hit the sack at 10:30-11:00 which works most nights. Before I sleep I do my gratitude thing. Sometimes I journal and sometimes I am too tired, so I mentally go through all my blessings and positive gifts.

So much for a sample day.  Just know that I am not big on doing the same exact things every day. I like a big variety of foods, teas and vegetables. My schedule changes every day as well. I just want to say that I really try to be a great example to my clients, my friends and my family, so you know I will keep you posted with any new and exciting additions, just can’t keep it to myself…J

    Hi Joy, thanks so much for your extensive and informative posts. I look forward to reading them and have been getting so much valuable information. How do you make the fermented cabbage juice and is that connected to raw sauerkraut? I often hear that raw sauerkraut is very beneficial. Do you know where to get it when and how to use it or any other info about it?

      Hey sherri! All the fermented recipes are up! Enjoy! No time? there is always Bubbies sauerkraut, found in the refrigerator section of your local health food store! I also just tried an amazing product called Coconut kefir. It is delicious and has billions of probiotics in a tablespoon.
      Have fun
      xoxo
