lesson learned.....

So I promised that I would give everyone a rundown of the detox that T and I just finished...which I will, but I must start this off by telling you how awful and disgusting I am feeling right... at this very moment..........ughhhhh


Yesterday I awoke with a lighter than air feeling....healthy glowing....** please get a visual here people, me floating around from room to room getting ready for a busy fun day at my photograph course**.....so you can see I was feeling good........I even started out my day with the wheat-free 8 grain hot cereal that we have been eating for the last 12 days...funny how last week I thought it was the most disgusting concoction in the world and now I am actually enjoying it....
interesting....


So I go to my photography course....had a great day, so much fun...I was really wondering what I was going to do about lunch, I had brought some veggies and almonds with me just in case there wasn't anything that I could eat.....but they served a great lentil soup and sandwich.....so I had the soup and some of the meat that was in the sandwich.....ahh safe....I just wasn't ready to dive into "forbidden food" yet......yet.....


Fast forward to my drive home from the course......... I started thinking about getting my hands on some licorice 2 seconds after I left the parking lot of my course....ahh I couldn't wait to stop at my friendly variety store and grab my weekend stash....I am sure my friends at the store have missed me.....so I did. the first thing I did when I arrived in the city, I went in and grabbed a handful of licorice...I had one down before I even put my car in drive....hmmm good but not stellar....not the fantastic reunion I was hoping for to tell you the truth.....


So I got home and it was dinner time....we had decided to do a nice leisurely dinner of cheese roasted garlic...some cured meat...veggies...some crackers etc....all things that were not allowed for the last 12 days and of course some red wine...........ahhh I was so excited...I love this type of meal where we can just chat and slowly have some dinner...they usually end up lasting a few hours.............well the company was still as good as always....but something just wasn't the same....our taste buds had changed....it just wasn't what I was hoping for.....wine didn't taste as good...we felt sluggish and full at the end of it!


But nothing that I felt last night is as bad or gross as I feel right now...........yuck....I just feel gross...I can certainly tell that I had one to many glasses of wine and didn't eat properly because my body is aching and blah I just don't feel right........I couldn't wait to get up and eat my hot cereal and start my day of healthy WHOLE eating again....now I am not saying that I won't have the occasional cheat day from time to time but I think this 12 day detox has put me back on track.....I want the good healthy feeling again not this sluggish heavy feeling....ahhh can't wait to wake up tomorrow......back to floating around the condo!!!! lol


So I would highly recommend this detox.....it is called the Wild Rose Detox....12 days, not as hard as you might think....there are tons of websites that will give you some ideas for eating and recipes...and anyone can email me for more information....we both LOVED it!! I think this is the start of new healthy whole lifestyle for us!!

have a great day........we are off to discuss cottage living with my Grandma...........so EXCITED!!!
