I’m doing a detox. I am a 50/50 mixture of excited and ashamed.
I have aligned myself with a lot with the body positive movement and there is a strong frowning on diets there.
I have been talking a lot to Ryan about how people say they would do anything to heal or recover or move past. Then God sends them a little trail of bread crumbs…desires, books, friends, resources…and they’re like “no way…that can’t be the answer. That’s not related to my current situation at all.”
Last night before bed I told God “I would truly give anything for my sleep to be deep and nourishing so I wake up refreshed.”
And also, in the spirit of honesty, I have purchased approximately 400 articles of clothing in the last 3 weeks. I hate 80% of them outside of the store. I realized I am searching for a new lower abdomen and not new shirts and pants.
This morning, I was looking for things to add to a meal plan from old recipes that I have when I stumbled across Mark Hyman’s 10 Day Detox program.
It’s a plan I’ve had printed out for years and never done.
It addressed specific abdomen regions and what might be going on if they are ummm….inflamed…engorged….I’m looking for a word that’s not fat. Everything that he said about lower abdomen fat rang true for me.
But I’m trusting that it’s a bread crumb.
And I’m going to blog for the 10 days on my blog. I promise the journaling of the journey will be full of honesty, graphic descriptions, and probably some humor.

I usually skim them and then am like “oooh….I could make this better. Then I do...with no record of the changes.
