Anyway, the cleanse..... I've never done a cleanse before, and already one week into this group work, I don't know if I ever will.
Wait what? I'm in a cleanse group, but not cleansing? Here's the rub, I'm not good on any type of diet. It gets into my head. I rebel. My mind screams "No way in hell, I'm going to eat X and breakfast, Y at lunch, and Z at dinner. I will not! I will not. I will not. You can't make me!"
And I pretty much can't. It's that primal and that childish.
But, this group is as stated, more of a support group. Each of us is coming at this from a different angle. While some are working on eliminating caffeine and/or sugar, others are cutting out alcohol and other recreational drugs, while still others are focusing more on the consistency of their meditation practice.
Me? I'm not sure what the hell I'm doing. (Shocking, I'm sure.) But the loose structure, back and forth between group members, and check-ins and "assignments" from Dr. Cory HAS been motivating.
Just look what all those photos of perfect green juice posted by others in the group has inspired me to do.
|Yep, I laid down the big bucks.|
|Then hit OB Peoples for organic swag.|
(Although the gorgeous organic orange I plucked right from our tree.)
|I guessed as to proportions,|
|threw it all into the behemoth,|
|and viola, my very first homemade green juice.|
So it may have been heavy on the cilantro and light on the mango. But tomorrow is another day. Another day to work on getting my shit together, which is, obviously, the work of a lifetime.
