Nothing but pills and ashes under my skin

Okay so no pills actually under my skin, but I have been feeling a bit ashy and blah, so I saw this 7-day detox/cleanse diet where I eat like a vegan rabbit, drink lots of water and tea, and in seven days I feel cleansed and refreshed. I’m passing on the, uh, recommended colonic, but might get a massage on “Peak Day” 4.

Here’s a scan.
Anyone crazy enough to go through this with me?
I’m starting in the morning.

And yes, you read that correctly. No coffee. Therefore I’d like to offer a preemptive apology to anyone who comes across my path for the next seven early mornings. I’ll try to be cheery, I will. I guess I’ll be so pumped with flavonoids and B-vitamins that I’ll feel like superwoman . . . right?

  • Great call on the Guster — one of the best Sesame Street covers out there.

    And good luck with the coffee withdrawl. We’re all rootin’ for ya, Heather.

  • the colonic really is what would make it all worth it. and would actually make the coffee withdrawl perhaps lessen. I’m just sayin… sometimes it’s “go big or go home” ;)

  • OK Anon, I think I still am too wimpy, BUT….you win for the best comment on my blog in a long time.

  • lol – going big could be either good or bad…

    Count me in – for the modified version as well. Also, I don’t know what the new greens powder is. Herbal teas, fruits, quinoa – I can do for maybe a day. Maybe I’ll go for the 2-day plan. I’ll try, Heather – it’s all I can do..

  • Thanks drew.

    And sirensong, I don’t know what the new greens powder is either. I did go to Whole Foods today and stock up on some weird tonics and such. Other than a dull headache all day, I actually feel really good already. you can do it!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
