So yesterday I tried out my Mom's blender. Since my Man gets mad when I put vegetables/"weird things" in his magic bullet and I'm too cheap to buy a blender, I borrowed hers. I made a GREEN smoothie and loved it.
1 Cup of Almond Milk, as much Spinach as I could shove into the blender, Cinnamon and lot's of French Vanilla Stevia. Quit it. I know what you're thinking, but this was REALLY good. I'm calling it lion blood.
Now I'd answer the 20 questions for day 4, but really you just need to refer to yesterday. I did everything I did yesterday and didn't do everything I didn't do yesterday. Mmm hmm.. I also accidentally woke up and had some Rice Cakes with Earth Balance. Gotta do whatcha gotta do.
Here's what Kris Carr has to say about day 4...
“Remember when we were kids and we imagined we’d have our very own amusement park, along with two pet dinosaurs and a rocket for getting to school? Not only did we think it, we believed it to our core. Then one day a ninny of neighbor pierced the dream with really dumb words: “Suzie, you can’t own a rocket or a dinosaur. That’s just silly.” Your response: “What?” Followed by tears, snot, and disillusionment. Likewise, the new you may scare people because it forces them to in the mirror. You may start hearing the voice of negativity from friends, family, and acquaintances starting about now and continuing in the future. Don’t let the judgment of others who are less supportive of or puzzled (and maybe threatened) by your new lifestyle bring you down. Understand that they just don’t understand. Reassure them that you’re happy and getting healthier. Do it nicely, with love.”
No, but I do remember imagining I’d be a “grocery checker” (big DREAMS, scanning groceries and typing on the cash register called my 5 year old name), with one too many dogs and a Fisher-Price Power Wheels Barbie Mustang not to drive to school. No one ruined this for me; this is still going to happen.
Honk if you're HAPPY
As far as any ninny’s go I can’t say any one is being unsupportive of my cleanse. I do however, find that the cleanse is becoming a scapegoat for my headaches. Yesterday, I had a headache and I had more than one person say that, “maybe it’s the cleanse.” Sure “maybe it’s the cleanse”, but if that’s the case why did I get a migraine last week? And three weeks prior to that? And sporadically for the last 5 years? I understand though, it’s coming from a loving place. Everyone just wants to find the answer to my headaches. And maybe yesterday’s headache WAS because of the cleanse.
If someone is doing this cleanse and you are struggling with ninny’s. I really like that word, ninny’s. It’s funny. So I’m going to keep talking about it. Anyway, I blame the use of the word cleanse. When people hear cleanse they think drastic, they think Beyonce Knowles and the Master Cleanse.
I wouldn’t last long enough of lemon/cayenne/maple syrup water to GET a headache. I’ll have that water with a side of BREAKFAST please. This isn't restrictive at all. Well to my Dad it would be restrictive, but to me it's normal. Plus if you're not a lazy cook who doesn't mind putting a little effort into your meal you'll LOVE all her recipes in the back of the book.
Tonight my Man and I are going to rent The Tourist. I’m excited, so if you’ve seen it and its bad don’t tell me. What I don’t know won’t kill me/will keep me happy until I’m sitting there bored in the middle of the movie.
In other news, I bought a few new things to try out this weekend. Okay, one thing. Coconut Oil. I hope I LOVE it. Here's to hoping.
