She and Him

I went and saw the band She and Him on saturday night instead of attending my high school reunion back in Oklahoma. Very cool band, I like them a lot - more country sounding than I thought they would be - but not country that is on the radio right now - more like June Cash or Tammy Wynette

here is one of their songs I found on youtube

Moving on

well today was the very first day I added any meat back to my diet - I just hadn't been wanting any. I had ham and swiss on a brioche roll toasted - can I say delicious much? Um YES I can... DELISHIOUS! hehe

alright now on to more important things - I watched Diane Sawyer interview with the famous swimmer Esther Williams quite some time ago but one thing from that interview that stuck with me was her old swim caps. Which made me wonder about fancy swim caps... do they still make them?

and the answer is - INDEED THEY DO
here are some cute ones

Cute in PINK {althought they refer to it as Mauve} and at $8.99 its a steal :)

And this one is quite LOUD - I mean you could get people talking for sure!

And this one - although not much in the way of a SWIMCAP reminds of of Edie Beale from Grey Gardens! And as many of you know - I love me some Beale's!

The Aftermath

Well today is my first day off the Master Cleanse, so far I have consumed some freshly squeezed orange juice and it isn't settling all that well. Last night I was sure to run by the grocery store and pick up some oranges for juicing, some strawberries and walnuts for munching. But since the OJ is giving me a bit of a rumble in my belly those strawberries and walnuts might be just for dinner.

a little news besides my detox - going to see the band He and She on saturday
and I am really really digging this cup... its on backorder but I can totally see why!

Day TEN!!!

Well its the morning of Day TEN - my final day! I still feel good, and I sense that I have benefited the most from this detox in the last few days... although I feel like if I ended it now it wouldn't be as valuable to me. But I'm going to give the notion of keeping this up longer a BIG 'N-O', I am beyond ready to chew on something {gum wasn't even allowed}. As of this morning I had lost 11 lbs. Tomorrow I will do a final report on this 10 day long process!

I can hardly believe I have almost made it to day TEN! I am so close to finishing up this cleanse and I am really ready for it to be over. All is still going well and I just wrapped up my Salt Water drink and I am about to start on my lemonade for the day.

{late} Day EIGHT

oops - no fretting I forgot to take the time to blog yesterday. I went out to Purchase, NY yesterday with my roommate Laura to lay out at her parents pool. I was sure to pack up my lemonade and water to take with me so I wouldn't be tempted to cheat. All went well, no cheating occured and now on to day NINE!!!


Friday, July 18, 2008


Well - supposedly I am at my worst day. I woke up this morning feeling really terrible I had a sore throat and my stomach was cramping. But after I got through my salt water I was feeling a little better. I got to work and it was immediately busy so I didn't have time to make my lemonade drink before the masses came in and so I had to make it just now at 10:30. Which means everyone in the office now knows I am on the master cleanse. blerg! Oh well, it kinda gave me the movtivation I needed to really keep this 'cleanse' up until monday. Off for now.

UPDATE - as a reward for me not cheating on this program I decided that I will get myself a few mega millions tickets

Well its day SIX and the bloom has definitely faded on this master cleanse flower - I am quite tired today. But the good news is, I am a little over half way there YAY!

A little more bad news - my dear roommate is a negative influence, she tried to talk me into quitting on 2 separate occasions yesterday - but no worries my fellow readers I did not cave.

On a happier note {nothing to do with this detox} is this funny and sad link. Turn up the volume and tell me what you think Demetri Smalls might look like.

UPDATE - well I am going to the movie on Friday and NONE of you can stop me... well its okay I promise not to cheat. I told Heather to make sure I didn't sneak in a bite of popcorn


Wednesday, July 16, 2008


Well I suppose I am a glutton for punishment - I can't stop looking at food blogs! If you have never seen the website tastespotting.com you are soooo missing out! Its a feast for the eyes, which I suppose in my case that is the only part of me that is getting a feast.

But today is a big day - day FIVE - when it is over I will be at my half way point! I was talking to my mom about it last night and she thinks I am a little crazy for doing it, but it a good test for self restraint and I have also lost a little weight. In all honestly I don't know if I have noticed any type of changes, other than I believe my sense of smell has been heightened. Hmmm? Oh well! Check back in later

UPDATE - a bunch of people in the office just brought in fried chicken and it smells heavenly!

well its the morning of day FOUR and I am feeling pretty good still. I have to say that I am craving food - well I am craving junk food so I think I'm okay sticking to it for a little while longer. I mean, once I start getting a craving for plain lettuce then I would consider caving on this detox, but all seems well so far.

UPDATE - well I foresee problems, because I was reading about other peoples issues on the Master Cleanse and they all say that they had the worst time on day SEVEN and guess what day SEVEN is for me???? oh its FRIDAY and FRIDAY I am most likely going to the movies and the smell of popcorn might do me IN hahaha - well I guess I will just cross that bridge when I come to it.

well its only the morning of Day 3 - I had to wake up early so I could make sure I could get my salt water flush in (haha and out) before I left for work this morning

Still not hungry but I have to admit I am feeling like a need to chew on something - my roommate ordered sushi last night and I was okay not eating any, but I will say that is it looked delish. Now that I am at work I will do more small updates throughout the day

UPDATE - its almost 4:30 and I am still not starving like I thought I would be - but I am totes having a hankering for STEAK haha

Well its day two and I am still on the master cleanse - I have to say that last night I felt like I had the flu. But I pressed on and fell asleep and all was well when I woke up. And because I am a little obsessed I got on the scale and I weighed 4 pounds less than when I started all this on Friday evening. Granted I think the moment that I drank my next batch of lemonade I gained it all back but 1 lbs.

And I had to run to the grocery to pick up some more maple syrup and I was kinda impressed by myself that I didn't feel like caving and just picking up a roasted chicken or something. I walked in and smelled all the deliciousness that the little grocery had to offer and I just kept my feet a'walkin

now tomorrow might be another story


Saturday, July 12, 2008


Okay - I know I mentioned this some time back but today is my first day of my master cleanse. Actually I had to start with a tea last night, but today is the first real day.

So far I have had 8 cups of water mixed with 4 teaspoons of salt... hahah {hell of a breakfast}

next up LUNCH
which consists of water, maple syrup, freshly squeezed lemon juice and cayenne powder

and guess what... that is my dinner as well

UPDATE - well its 9:40 and I haven't eaten any solid food today and shockingly I am not hungry, but I did just finish off my lemonade mixture and about to have my nightly tea. I will be sure and report back tomorrow!
