    you rocked it! i think even if i told people i would still be cheating. i am so weak. i wonder if i could do a modified raw fruit thing… maybe add nuts or something seeing as i am nursing fiona still. it would be hard as i have to feed my troop here, they have no mercy. lol

      I would say make sure half of what you eat is fruits and veggies. I wouldn’t recommend this for a nursing mama- you need such a variety of things to eat as does Fiona. But if you make yourself put everything you eat on a plate or bowl (no eating chips out of the bag) and half needs to be fresh fruits or veggies, that could work 🙂

    Please tell me you stayed all the way through the credits when you saw the Avengers. There is a second extra scene at the very, very end and though not plot advancing, it is classic Joss and not to be missed.

      I have failed as a Joss fan girl, and I trusted the person I went with (who had seen it once) and she didn’t realize the was an extra treat at the end. I’m so bummed- guess I’ll have to go and see it again 🙂

      This is my third one over 18 years- I could do it to ‘lose weight’ it has to be more then that. The first two times was a spiritual cleanse to prepare for a vision quest. This time it’s an emotional physical cleanse, to help me get where I want to go. Make sure your focus is in a good place, and if you don;t have a background in alternative/herbal medicine, make sure someone who does is supporting you. When your body starts to cleanse a lot of toxins can hit your body stream and liver, giving you headaches, flu symptoms,cramps, and you need to know hoe to deal with these. Tons of water- mild exercise, clay baths etc.

        I have heard some horror stories about people who have done it with the wrong intentions – certainly something you want to do with a dr…

          It’s true, without proper focus and knowledge an intense cleanse can make you sick.

    Hang in there, Alica, it will hopefully get easier. Those toxins coming out of the body are a real bitch!

    Alica, hang in there girl!

    First I must applaud you for taking the steps to become a healthier you! And then I must say that your husband is a wonderful man to support you in your efforts! Big kudos hubby!

    Alica, you may notice times where you might get a little emotional. It comes with the detox. It just so happens that while we detox toxins in our body, we also detox emotional toxins. Our body release them both at the same time. So don’t be alarmed. It’s normal and it will subside along with the other symtoms.

    I’ve been at this healthy eating and detox stuff for years. And if you have any questions feel free to ask. 🙂

      Thank you so much Karen. This week is definitely an emotional purging week. Hubby and I met while working in a health food store, so we both have a lot of experience with cleanses but I’ll email you if I have questions or just want to complain LOL!
