Today Is Day One
Tuesday, January 01, 2013
I picked up a new 2013 planner on clearance at Target this weekend. I already have a custom planner but grabbed this one as it struck me as highly inspirational. On the cover it reads Today Is Day One. How apropos for the year we're banking on as the start of a new era.
Today is also day one of the Doctor Oz 3 Day Detox for us. So far I've have my breakfast, lunch and snack smoothie.
The breakfast drink is very tasty. I didn't think the almond butter would really affect the flavor but it does come through. Yum. Texture wise its like a typical fruit smoothie so it was easy to drink.
The lunch drink is a different matter, and looking online it seems I'm not the only one with this experience. The taste itself isn't bad, it's really the texture. It's kind of like blended up salad. Ki says its like pond water with bits of celery floating in it. : p I found that taking big swigs and chewing some of the bits helped. My sister has been sipping at hers for half and hour and likely won't finish as this drink is probably twice the size of breakfast.
As for how I feel, it really too soon to say. I've been peeing a lot, and it has had good color too it so I guess I am clearing out a lot? I had some stomach issues which went away but my poor sister feels miserable right now. Hopefully the dinner drink will go better.
I do feel more mentally alert than usual, but it could be in my head (lol). Time will tell.
