This will only amuse a small selection of you, but I must share:
In the wee early hours of this morning, I began my day, giggling to myself the whole way through, with 110 forehands, 110 backhands, 110 volleys and 110 overheads… and I worked up quite the sweat – that stuff actually is effective. Who knew? I couldn’t get that wall of folded up brown bleachers, at about net height, out of my mind!

Today I ran the longest I have run thus far in my life…. in the pooring Van rain… just hope I make it to May 7th, the big 42km day, a mere 6 weeks away, healthy and able to just run the buggar to the end…

All is well with the bod.

I’ve proven, yet again, an obvious fact in relation to this whole cleanse thing: While I’m sure my liver thanks me, and my intestines are likely much better off after this week of goodness being delivered, you’re never quite healthy and happy and rid of “toxins” on the inside if your emotional life and mental well being are out of sorts. Once they are in sync, your physical body will likely follow. When they’re out of sync, your body will most definitely let you know – THIS I know. Take from that what you will, but a cleanse can only do so much…

My week-long physical cleanse comes to a grand halt and ends this evening with a normal b-day dinner. I may even indulge in a well-deserved glass of wine.

Happy Birthday Roberto.

Ah yes, and still hungry. But this cleanse is a bit of a joke. I think I must be missing something? I have a mere two days left and I feel pretty great. For those of you who have inquired what the regime looks like:

No caffeine, no booze – easy on the latter, not so much on the former. My morning and lunch shakes are yummy, consisting of berries, some fruit and almond milk, but are quite powdery tasting, due to the addition of the substances that look toxic, but are actually supposed to rid your body of the toxins, RevitalX and Detoxitech, the thick dust I have to clump into the blender. Dinners are TONS of greens, herbs and maybe fish or chicken. And I drink water like it’s going out of style.

Like I said, a bit of a joke. Oh, and I am allowed a handful of almonds and seeds as snacks along the way. Eating like a bird is fun! All that said, I can’t wait to get my hands on a big, fat bagel with lox and a larger than life LATTE!!!!
