I am moaning and complaining about my EXTREMELY sore muscles today. Honestly, “Salute the Sun” and “Downward Dog” have torture capabilities I have never imagined!
This morning, I finally made it to our local organic farmer’s market. 🙂 This is what I did for my childrens’ play date with their friends: dragged them all out (after generously applying sunblock) to roam the stalls and inspect the local produce being offered for sell. Then, I conned each one of those four into sharing a “green drink” with me. My two remember when I still had a juicer and made a green drink each day. They do not remember it fondly. I used apples to try to cover some of the stronger flavors (such as the dandelion greens – fantastic cancer fighters).
This green drink was amazing. It used grapefruit, kale, spinach, blue agave, and flax, to name just a few. All four children became very enthusiastic and shared the drink with me.
Now, I think it is safe to say my poor battered body has been cleansed. And it is still cleansing approximately every thirty minutes. To say the least, I am definitely home for the rest of the day.
The good news is that, now that my cleanse is REALLY happening (holy smoke, is it ever happening yikes!), I can get down to some other physical business: trying to gain a little weight, for starters; increasing my stamina, for another. In terms of stamina, since I have absolutely NONE, I imagine I will see some improvement rather quickly. (This falls under the heading “starting from zero, nothing to lose, everything to gain.”)
I will be posting more later today, in between my cleansing trips to and fro through the house. Haha.
Blessings on this beautiful Wednesday, and every day…
