In case anyone is hanging out around here, kicking stones and waiting for my triumphant return to blogging, well congratulations, today is your lucky day! Yes YOU!
I wish I could say that I haven’t been blogging due to an extremely whirlwind social life, but that would be lying, and Big Girls Don’t Lie. (Or was it Big Girls Don’t Cry? In which case I do. A lot apparently.)
No, my lack of blogging was due mostly to a feeling of non-responsibility to everything and everyone, including work, home, pets, friends, blogs, etc. It’s that post-vacation slump where you are back in the daily grind, and just. not. feeling it. Add to that a few miniature personal disasters, and you’ve got yourself an I JUST DON’T GIVE A FUCK RIGHT NOW attitude that carried me through….oh the past four weeks. Hurray!
Luckily, somewhere around the three week mark, I decided that I needed a huge kick to get me back on track, and so I decided that August would be my detox month. And by detox I mean: no coffee, no alcohol, no drink besides water, no sugars, no processed foods, no breads or flours, very little grains, and mostly a diet of raw fruits and vegetables. Let me rephrase that: nothing but water, fruit and vegetables.
And would you believe it is working? After the first few days where I got a bit feverish, by day four I was soaring, and now I feel great. It’s never a bad thing to get back to the basics of healthy living/eating and it is certainly never a bad thing to drink more water.
I say that after 9 days, but maybe you should check back with me at the end of the month and see how I feel then!
In other news, Amsterdammers, please check out my Hotel V blog post about the upcoming SAIL 2010. It’s going to be a dooooozie!
Also? This is in a window on the Leidseplein that I pass on my walk to work in the morning, and without fail every morning it scares the living shit out of me, so naturally I took a photo for you. You’re welcome!
