Detox Check-In Day 19!!

Okay! The HOME STRETCH. I've only got two and a half days to go! I have to be honest, I am so ready to be finished. Mainly just because I'm DYING for coffee, I woke up today wanting a cup so badly. Saturdays are my days to brew a pot of coffee and sip all morning. I thought about cheating and brewing some, but then I remembered that I'm almost finished and it's going to make that first cup on Tuesday so much better! I was feeling so strong I actually went to Frothy Monkey (one of my favorite coffee shops in Franklin, TN) with my gal pal Mal and only drank water. It feels like a major accomplishment. Frothy Monkey!

This detox has really been so great. I feel so much better, lighter and less groggy. I plan to really continue eating pretty similarly to the way we have been only with more eggs and the occasional cheese. Oh and the coffee. In moderation of course. What is the one thing you would have the most trouble doing without for 21 whole days?




The Perfect Supper for a Rainy Day

You know when it starts to rain just before you have to go outside? That happened to me today when I got back to the office after lunch. So I decided to wait in my car for a couple of minutes to see if it would let up a little. Only it didn't. It rained harder. It rained like I'd never seen it rain before. I thought, "at least I have my new umbrella we bought on vacation!" then I remembered that I had forgotten to bring it to lunch, it was sitting at my desk. The rain wasn't going anywhere so I decided to run for it but by the time I made it to the door, I was drenched. Cowboy boots and all. It made for a pretty miserable afternoon at the office. I just made some hot tea and tried to carry on. Luckily for me, when I got home Mr. Gillean was already in the kitchen making one of my favorite dinners and the perfect remedy for an afternoon spent wearing wet socks. He was making lentil soup. It's a detox friendly meal and it has so much flavor! Tim found the recipe on a while back and he's made it several times since and it's always so delicious. Plus we always have tons of leftovers and it's great to take to work for lunch.
