Everybody's doing it. Well maybe not. But seems like I was hearing about it a lot. Im not ready to go full out paleo- my family is DEFINITELY not ready.. And I'll be honest, not sure doing it forever is really the best thing. But I am finishing up a Paleo organ detox and it has been interesting.
First thing I noticed is that it is expensive!! Wow. Which kind of bugs me. Fruits and veggies, nuts, true grains, ect come across as being "easier" to obtain in comparison to something that has been run thru some kind of preservation and packaging and shipped off to Costco. So why is it so much more to buy the raw stuff? Dumb.
The detox also was a sugar fast- so if it wasn't sweet from fruit it wasn't happening. That was hard. Hardest thing to not have was life saver hard candy.
Day 3 I had a massive headache and started to seriously breakout. I decided it was from my body flushing out all the junk.
Day 4 was good and I felt like I was into the swing of things.
Today is day 5 and I'm SO sick of fish, nuts, kale, broccoli, and lemon water.
Minus my gross skin- apparently this is going to carry on for a bit while I keep detoxing.
Recommended time for an organ detox- according to Dr Oz, is 5-25 days. We are leaving for sunny California Friday. I have a feeling my detox will end Saturday morn.

Living the Dream

I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted to be when I "grew up" But I'm certain that motherhood has exceeded any other of my hopes and dreams.

Things that I have said this morning:

"we need to be very very careful with potions. They can really hurt"

"please try to find a more Sunday appropriate game"....

A few minutes later

"there is no such thing as Zombie Missionaries"

"Preslie- we can't fit any more hair accessories on your head" (she wants all of them on!)

"Zane, one pair of shorts under your church pants only, and no more then 2 undershirts" still waiting for this layering up phase to end.

"that is sour cream not yogurt"

"I'm not sure why no one has made just dance for the wii with primary songs"

It's fun to be a Mom
