It was my day off today.
The alarm was turned off, no one was going anywhere – kids are still sick, my day off, no need to get up at an specific time.
I was still up at 7.15am.
I thought about it, as I was surfing the web… do I really want to expend any energy today? There’s a lot of things I “should” do.
I should exercise.
I should study.
I should work at my part time job.,
I should clean up the back yard.
I should clean up my desk.
I should clean my house.
I surfed the web for about 2 hours. Went upstairs, woke up hubby and I promptly went back to bed. I lay in bed until about 2pm. Watched a movie I’ve been trying to watch for a month or so now…. Wished I hadn’t – I did NOT like the ending… dammit…
A friend came over at 2, we spent some time hanging out and I sent my husband out to do errands.
I almost feel human. By tomorrow, I think I’ll be completely over this cold.
If not, it will be flushed from me… I’m doing a three day cleanse.
For 3 days I will be doing a cleanse, drinking nothing but a concoction of lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and water. The theory is that I will flush out toxins from my system, and when I start eating food again on Monday, I will be starting from a good place. A friend is doing this with me, she’s big on cleanses.
The hardest part? No coffee. I think I can live without the food, but there will be no coffee… UGH.
So for tonight, we had pizza for dinner, I’ll have a coffee in a bit, and then mentally prepare myself for … the cleanse. I’ll let you know how it works for me over the weekend. 2 of the 3 days I’ll be at work, and I’m not sure which will be harder, at work, where we talk about food a lot, or at home, where my random snacking happens the most.
But I’m going to make this work for me 🙂
