Well, of course week two was a bit more challenging than week one. I had one night that I splurged on Key Lime Pie (Scott and I were out for dinner), but aside from that I stuck to my essential clean foods: fruits, veggies, nuts, legumes, and organic meats & fish.
Success! I made it through my first week of eating mostly fruits and vegetables, 3 meals with organic protein, nuts and dried fruit as snacks, and water and tea as beverages.
Ok, that’s it. I’ve had it. After 7 nights of vacation, a wonderful cruise in the Western Caribbean jam-packed (literally) with food, folks, and fun…I am 100% ready for detox. A food detox, that is. Don’t worry. I’m not turning anti-social or anti-fun. Although, I presume what I’m about to do will greatly improve my social and recreational lifestyle, significantly.
Yesterday, I made a visit to the ENT (Ear, Nose, Throat) Doctor. I’ve been so preoccupied with other health symptoms that I hadn’t realized how bad my allergy symptoms were getting. I can’t remember the last time I could breathe through my nose, let alone go through a day without several allergy attacks. Guess you could say, I just couldn’t take it anymore.
(Warning: I use the words Boobs and Period in this post.)
When I was a young teenager, I was a girly-girl on the inside, but probably more like a tomboy on the outside. I loved girly things such as Barbies, dancing, and crafts. I also loved to play basketball, adventure in the woods, and ride motorized bikes. I had a compassionate and gentle heart inside this gawky, skinny, and narrow frame. None of this concerned me growing up. But, by the time I turned 13, I grew nervous about having no boobs and no period.
