Now I don’t know whether it’s in my imagination ….. possibly Antra’s comments urging me on ( Thankyou Antra :):):):):) ………or maybe it’s because I looked at the pic of myself wallowing in self pity …..I DO tend to lol about like that milking it to to the nth degree when feeling ill … they had run out of ‘stoicism’ when they got to me on the ‘feeling ill’ front ….it’s why I don’t drink above a couple of glasses of alcohol when out socially :D:D
Alcohol does not do me good …don’t even like the taste really ….BUT THIS!!??? ….I thought I was pretty healthy for my age …… caught unawares by how AWFUL I have actually felt starting this detox regime ….reassured slightly by googling ‘symptoms’ but rather than thinking positively about the ‘purging of toxins’ …..which seemed to affect every inch of my being INCLUDING MY VOICEBOX AND EYES!!! I have spent the last few days lolling around going ‘woe is me’ at every available opportunity
ANYWAY I woke at 6am this morning BEFORE THE ALARM ..it was like the lights had been switched back on ….yes …yes …I’m still a bit snuffly and muggy headed BUT the aches have gone and I fair bounced out of bed …… the thing is I had felt so bad I had not been meditating …AND THIS IS PRECISELY WHEN YOU SHOULD … detox the mind as well as the physical body …..the 2 going hand in hand ….the double whammy rebalance so to speak …I could go further into the interconnectness on a microcosmic level etc etc but let’s not get carried away ..folk only think am bonkers when I go off on on one like that
AND …AND ….it’s not a ‘regime’ is it ….well actually that’s part of the problem …the 21 day detox kind of LOOKS like one and I’m not very good at those ……maybe it’s the terminology …..
SO …I’ve decided to view it differently ….and ok I haven’t miraculously turned into some radiant beaming beauty so joyous am I re this experience (I still want to whack those women with my cushion …in actual fact have been looking at them again and the blond one is viewing the bananas with a very a strange expression if you ask me ….. she looks a bit wary …..the other woman is wallowing in every available fruit EXCEPT bananas …..the last one has clearly been admitted to some kind of clinical institution in what looks to be a sterile environment free from all visible organicmatter and WHAT on EARTH has become of Ms day 21 !!!?? From where I’m sitting she has been reduced to a shadow of a being who although clearly bendy has the substance of what looks like watermelon with a singular protruding limb of spring onion …and thank goodness for THAT say I …I mean watermelon is all very well but it’s consistancy is just watery mush…WHERE would that pitiful being be without her Spring onion:D:D
Anyway I digress …where was I …oh yes:D:D …
BUT considering I’ve never done this before and there is hmmmmm what? ….let’s just say over 21years of build up of ingesting allsorts in there …it’s just 21 days of drinking this ere ‘tea’ and eating fresh fruit and veggies etc….ok so no bars of Galaxy chocolate or almond croissants AND I really need to prioritise having lunch rather than being soooo damned busy I find myself wolfing down a family bag of revels at 4pm when sat in the car picking up Sam from school ( I MEANT to share them but they just DISAPPEARED ok?:D:D;) …..BUT once its done ….just need to do a mini every now and again to prevent the build up getting this bad …maybe a weekend a month….it’s a piece of cake really ……..
Oh God ‘cake’ mmmmmmm…..no …no …..NO CAKE!!!! not just yet anyway:D:D:D
And SO to quote one of my faves who not only speaks to my soul but makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside …
No ..No ….THINK POSITIVE!
NO …NO …think NOTHING …..just tra la li and see what happens:D:D:D
