Crossing Fingers & Toes
Yep, we’re going to need all the happy thoughts and support to get through the next four days. Mike and I are going to follow Whole Living’s Whole Body Action Plan over the next month but, I figure once the four day detox is over, we’re home free. No gloriously steaming cup of coffee to help wake me up the morning? No spicy, warming, happy glass of wine to celebrate the end of the day while we cook dinner? ::sigh:: Where is the fun in that??
Well, I suppose we’ll find out. Mike has been wanting to try a detox/cleanse for pretty much as long as I’ve known him. Thanks a lot Tim and company. This one actually seems healthy without ridiculous rules, so I’m game to see if it really is as life changing as cleanse addicts say it is.
So starting tomorrow, we’ll be starting our detox and following the Whole Body Action Plan along with tons of other motivated people. There is a support site with daily emails (if you sign up) to keep you on track and pretty yummy recipes (no rice cakes and spicy lemonade here!). If you guys want to join in, we’d love the company! Or if you think we’re crazy and have no chance of making it past the second day, place bets! Nothing like a little competition to keep us on the straight and narrow.
PS. Last night for the “pre-detox”, we had steamed baby bok choy, sushi rice, and sauteed shiitake mushrooms with garlic & onion. I’d post a picture but I guarantee your mental image is MUCH better.
