Spring cleaning...for the body Part 1

About twice a year I get in a fight with food. I get to the point where I'm constantly craving something (beats me what it is..) and eat everything in sight trying to figure out what it is. (And no, it's not red meat, those of you who think I'm dying from a protein deficiency) Or I just don't really want to eat anything, I wander around starving, but grossed out by everything in the fridge.

Hopefully it doesn't get worse when I'm pregnent.

But this time, after an especially bad bout of bouncing back and forth between the two I decided to detox. The idea behiend the detox (or at least my detox) is to cut out all the yucky stuff (extra sodium, sugars, etc.) and let my body clean itself out and get my metabolism evened out (metabolism here meaning the chemical processes of the body). So here's the menu for the next couple days:
  • fresh or steamed veggies (no adding salt or butter)
  • fresh fruit or fruit juice
  • tons of water
  • lots of ginger tea with lemon and peppermint tea (helps clean up the mess)
  • whole grains cooked with water
  • plain whole milk yogurt (no additives)
  • tofu (usually blended with fruit)
  • extras allowed: lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, spices
Seems extreme, but it's only for 3 days. I'll check in and let you know how I'm doing tomorrow.

Nacho's for Breakfast

My thought process this morning as I lay in bed...

Tummy: Mmmm..... breakfast.....
Intellect: Hmm. Breakfast. Pancakes? No.... no oats. Omlet? No... I was going to make eggs for lunch.
Tummy: Naaacchhhooooosssss............
Intellect: Nachos? What are you on?
Tummy: Nachos!
Intellect: Well I do have extra fajita stuff from last night I could do a type of breakfast burrito with hashbrowns and ....
Tummy: Nachos!
Intellect: No! No Nachos for you! The fake nacho cheese is reserved for PMS days when all you want is junk!
Intellect: No! You'll won't be able to move for the rest of the day!
Tummy: Nachos.
Intellect: Ok.

You know those goals that you set every year but they somehow never get all the way done. Here is one of them- splits.

Yup- I am a splitless dance major. In fact the only splitless dance major. So here is the challenge: The semester ends April 10th. Guess who's going to have her splits by April 10th....


I'm tired of being the only splitless dance major. It's time for some serious flexibility training.

So hold me to it! APRIL 10TH!

El Departamento Nuevo

I'm all moved in to my new apartment! (and by all moved in I mean the stuff is here in boxes) It a sweet little old house right across the street from the Kirkham! Here, I'll give you the grand tour--


It's wonderful because it's so light and airy with lots of windows... but still really warm.  But it is really old and has lots of character. Like the oven hisses at you as it cooks. And there's no water pressure. It took me 10 minutes to wash my hair.
