It’s the weekend! Usually this means a drastic change in routine, but since it is summer, the fun just continues. Saturday I started the day with muesli, mana bread with almond butter and coffee. I went to Curves and then came home to start my CLEANING REGIME! I am determined to sort through, clean, recycle, toss, and organize everything in my house. I will get it condensed to a reasonable amount of “stuff” so that I am prepared for all possible outcomes to our housing nightmare. This is why I need strength and control.
Speaking of control, I am finding that I very much enjoy the structure and control of exercise when SOMEONE ELSE IS TELLING ME WHAT TO DO! I have figured out that that is why I like the peaceful bliss of yoga (my teacher tells me what to do pose by pose), Curves (the recording tells me when to change stations in the large oval circuit, and Couch To 5k which tells me when to run and walk. I have far too much on my mind to add exercise directions, but I am a willing participant.
I continued the rest of my Saturday with a lunch of salad with grilled chicken, a snack of almonds and a special dinner out. We met my cousins in Santa Monica at Real Food Daily where I had the yummy Pizza ya can Eat-za, which is a cornmeal crust with sun-dried tomato pesto, tomatoes, spinach, soy mozzarella cheese, basil served with kale and cannelini beans. This place is great when on the detox cleanse because everything on the menu is basically OK. There are a few sugary items and I admit to having a couple of bites of soy ice cream-while not sweetened with sugar, was sweetened with molasses bits, I believe. I really didn’t desire more than a bite, which is very unusual for me. I had water with lemon and Egyptian Mint Green Tea after eating. Success!
