I wasn’t happy to wake this morning to find everything covered with snow AGAIN…and it was still coming down. Looking on the bright side, at least it wasn’t more than 6 inches – manageable but still took over an hour to shovel… by myself. What’s with the groundhog though, who said “oh yeah, Spring is right around the corner?”
Thankfully I was able to enjoy my morning coffee in peace before heading off through the snow to the hairdresser. New stylists always frighten me. I’m never certain how my hair will turn out. But I had a coupon; the salon was rated well so I thought, “what the heck?” The cut and color were perfect; the styling, not so much. Another experience to keep in mind. At least with a good cut, I can style it as I like.
The best part of the day was heading off to the grocery store to gather all my ingredients for the 3-Day Detox Cleanse I’m beginning tomorrow…with DH as my partner. This is the first time he’s actually agreeing to any type of diet or exercise regimen. I’m impressed (on the surface.) The bill was around $90, I had some ingredients at home already and it was for two people; total cost about $15 per person per day. Pretty good I’d say.
Tonight however, we slid to the dark side, knowing full well we’d be deprived of our wildest desires (solid foods, especially breads and chocolate) for 3 full days! We ate with complete abandon…fried flounder, brown rice, spinach and mushrooms. The dessert, chocolate fudge ice cream (albeit low sugar) , was the highlight!
We’re going to enjoy the remainder of the evening, relaxing on the couch, switching between World Cup Baseball and movies on the big screen, accompanied by snuggly, warm furry creatures, as the fire crackles in the background.
Tomorrow begins an experiment of will, determination and perseverance. Let’s see who folds first!
