Goats Might Head Butt


Well, today marks day 7 of the cleanse! I'm feeling pretty good about that. Hitting the 1/3 mark feels pretty groovy too.

All of the meals, save one, was a repeat from earlier in the week. No complaints since I enjoyed them all, and honestly – I don't have the leftovers aversion the rest of my family does (makes me crazy, really).

The one that was new – is the first one I didn't care for. It was this morning's smoothie, and there was something a little off about it. I drank it anyway, but it's not one I'll keep in my post-cleanse recipe box. While I believe in trying to have the food I eat be clean, healthy, nurishing, and healing (most of the time anyway), I also believe life is too short to have bad food!

no issues busting out the beet/fennel soup at the swim meet! I'm sure I had some funny looks, but I looked funny at all the people at an athletic event buying hotdogs and chips from the consession stand, so we're even


I hit up one hot yoga class this week, which was awesome, and did two yoga classes at home with YogaGlo. I'm looking forward to some runs this coming week though!


Cleanse-wise, I was back to my overly-energetic self on day 5. I'm grateful I didn't have any prolonged symptoms. The food is good, filling, and for the most part, very quick to prepare.

My eldest came home from college this weekend, which was nice. She went to her friend's bday party Friday night, but otherwise it was all family time.

R had a swim meet yesterday. They're ridiculously long (5+ hrs), but very rewarding when it's your kid in the pool! R swam great, and I was incredibly proud when she reached over to a competitor to shake her hand at the end of the race (right after R beat her – but barely). This new team she's on really stresses sportsmanship, and not just winning (though they do that too!).

After the meet it was dinner, and then off to the movies! The new Thor movie is out, and since we're all huge fans of the Marvel movies (Iron Man, Avengers, Captain America, etc), it was perfect to go when A was home. We all really loved it, and it was a fun day, all around.

This morning I took A to the train station so she could head back to school, then made my way through my typical Sunday grocery shopping rounds. Came home, baked cookies, prepped produce for the week, and did normal Sunday things. D and I have a massage this afternoon, so I'm thinking that'll be the perfect end to an awesome weekend.

Trying to get some work done, and they sort of were getting in the way of my productivity for a bit
After getting R from school Friday, we stopped at a local farm to pick up essentials. They have animals about to feed and visit too, and I totally loved this sign. Apparently they only head butt when you run out of corn to feed them! Anyway, this sign made my day.

Hope you've all had a great weekend too!

I love to cook, read, run, box, do yoga, dance, travel, and learn as many new things as I can - which often gets me in trouble.... I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.

    1. Most definitely too short – I can’t believe I ever ate a SAD diet. My tastebuds must have been dead! I’m certainly not perfect, but I do think the food I eat is amazing and could never go back.
