I think I might...

try to do a detox over the weekend. I've been eating like a crazy woman with the relatives here, and they are going home on Thursday night. My fingers are feeling arthritic, which they tend to do if I have had too much diet Coke recently (no, really! It's a very noticeable effect with me). I also feel like I have several years of infertility toxins built up, and am feeling the need to clean myself out before I start on the next phase of my life. Not that I expect any actual "cleaning out" but I feel like it might be good to have something to mark the end of that life and the beginning of the new one. It's more of an emotional thing than a physical thing, but I feel the need to have a physical component otherwise it is just more of the same old stuff that I've been doing anyway.

So, Friday is the day. I think I will try for a four-day liquid-only detox, with fresh juices and soups. And lots of water and herbal teas. And if I can continue it beyond four days, then that will be a freakin' miracle but hey, maybe it'll help me jump start myself back onto my diet.

While studying math. Ruh-roh.

dude. your weekend sounds like no fun. a detox AND math?

I totally believe you! I get that effect from all sodas (except san peligrino lemonata), and decaf coffee. Maybe its a Sarah thing? I'm doing Weight Watchers as my between cycle clean out. It was all burritos all the time for a while there.

I totally believe you on the soda thing too. I get it from artificial sweetners but I get it all over my body. My muscles ache like crazy. Therefore I try to avoid.

I'm with calliope.....surely wine counts as the liquid for a detox? Then again, won't help the maths problem. Yes, I'm a mathS girl. Its mathematicS when its a noun, mathematic is an adjective.....I digress.
I can't believe you're doing detox and studying. If I ever have to study maths again, it will be with MUCH chocolate....or green tea and turkish delight....yum....

Sarah, the crap we put into our bodies definitely affects us. I feel so much better when I eat more whole, natural food. I need to detox as well. Way too much junk food lately.

Good luck! Detoxing can be rough, but hang in there, it gets worse before it gets amazingly better.
