Next Monday, February 1st, I will begin the above cleanse…..According to my friend, this cleanse will rid my body of my toxic sugar addiction, cleanse my mind and spirit, and result in excellent skin and beautiful hair. There may also be a period of emotional stress resulting in depression, anxiety, and feelings of worthlessness. Yikes! However, since I like to do extreme and odd things–I decided to give it a go. I can do anything for a month, right? My sister, a couple of her friends, and my mom are all joining in on the cleansing–starting next Monday. (Hmmmm, I have got to think of a fantabulous way to celebrate and kick-off this cleanse. Maybe Smitten Kitchen’s Homemade Oreos?) And anyone else that feels like a whole month of boring—join us!
There are a couple of problems that come with this cleanse. One being cravings. Another, grumpiness. I haven’t yet decided what to do about the cravings. February is a pretty quiet month (or so I thought) as far as gatherings go, so I felt that I would have less temptation. However, I thought wrong. I forgot about Nova’s birthday, the Super Bowl, Chinese New Year, Valentines Day, and the start of the Easter candy season. Not to mention the fact that I volunteered to make 100 mini cupcakes for Sawyer’s “Elegant Party”. I think I like to torture myself.
Watch out, because next week, I will be making sweets and blogging about them—-but not able to sample them. Even the thought of it makes me grumpy.
