Day one of detoxes are usually the best one.
I'm excited enough to be motivated and not tired of restriction.
Today was no different.
However, usually when I clean up my diet, other parts of my life follow.
This time I think it was my belief system. Last night, after chatting with a friend about finances, I tied my husband up and cried on his shoulder about the mess I've made of finances. Let me be clear, that was not the intended outcome of that activity. Then today I simply could not figure out why I've felt such a lack of inspiration around writing. Usually writing comes so naturally to me. Not recently. All the words have been tied up somewhere.
They have been tied up in people pleasing. I honestly thought I was over that. Then I realized every time I sit down to write for public consumption, I start then start the people pleasing edits. Is this possibly harmful to any race, religion or other class of people? Maybe. Delete. Would my other coach friends agree with this. Maybe not. Delete.
So anyway, by the time I'm done with the edits, I have no words left.
Maybe that has nothing to do with a detox. But it seemed like a lot of my beliefs were coming up for review today.
I guess since the bulk of the detox is about food, I should give that a run down.
If you can't sweeten things or consume alcohol, vanilla powder will be your savior. It's expensive, but smells like heaven and tastes almost as good.
I attached the menu plan we used here. It was a complete rebrand from my old menu plan. I'm actually sort of in love with how it looks. I absolutely love decorating documents. In fact, if menu planning as a profession only involved creating a pretty structure in which to place recipes, I would totally do that as a profession.
So even if you have no interest in menu plans of any sort, click the file just to see how pretty it is.
