I started out on the right track this morning. I had my magic alkaline drink of apple cider vinegar, pineapple juice, cinnamon & honey and went out for a 30 minute power walk that got me deliciously sweaty. I came home and made flourless protein pancakes. This was my first attempt at such a thing and it was, shall we say, less than awesome. I’ll tweak the recipe tomorrow and hopefully find them slightly more tolerable. Then I had my Vibrant
Grossness Health drink, which seriously tastes like a lawn mower smells.
Around 10 a.m. I started to crash but had to crank out some work for an exciting new project (but will refrain from sharing until it is complete) so I had a cup of coffee. Boo. Bad Belle.
Lunch was super rushed so we ran to the co-op and grabbed salads and apples. After lunch I hastily cleaned the bathtub for my planned evening soak, then rushed to Frankfort for my infertility support group.
Support Group can leave me feeling totally empowered or sad and extra infertile. Today was the second. It’s not that I did not enjoy the meeting. I did. I was just overcome with sadness that all of the women, myself included, have to make the trek to Frankfort once a month to find the support we need while desperately trying to build a family. I’m glad the group is there, but damn if it is not fair that we can’t all meet in a Mother’s Day Out group instead.
By the time I got home I was tired, hungry and all “woe is Belle.” I made a healthy stir-fry with tofu, cabbage, onions and green beans in a citrus ginger sauce. Then I heated up the left over brown rice, which I swore I would not eat until after the detox. Then I had the last of the chocolate coconut ice cream. Then I figured why the hell not complete the crappy start to a detox with a beer.
Not good. Not good at all. I think I’ll blame the cats for this one. Unfair, yes, but someone has to be my scapegoat and it might as well be the soft, purring, completely oblivious critter sitting next to me.
I’ll do better tomorrow and will put together the list of our Detox participants. If you still want to join it is not too late to be a slow-starter with yours truly 🙂
