Day 7! That’s a week! Woot woot!

Hellooooo Sunday! Let’s see, last Sunday I was quickly finishing up the wine and vegan bday cake lingering in the kitchen. This Sunday? Well I’m a full 7 days into the 21day cleanse and feeling good! Don’t get me wrong–there have been some tough moments. I had a pretty decent detox headache going on Friday night after the juice and smoothie feast and more than once I’ve had to grab hold of that sneaky devil on my shoulder that tells me that just one latte wont hurt. He’s right, it won’t destroy my health to have a latte but I’m working my butt off to clean out my body and mind–to press reset if you will– and lattes just aren’t in those cards.

Another interesting thing– the other night we were all cozy in bed, Josh and Leif asleep, and I had a strong emotional urge to go eat! Not a physical hunger but something in my deepens of my heart thought that maybe sneaking a midnight snack would somehow heal a part of me. I fought the urge to get out of bed, snuggled close to Leif and kissed him on the head and told myself, “Girl, you’ve got all the love you need right here! Don’t go out there in the cold!”

Finally got both Lily and Leif to sleep on a stormy stormy day. Decided to stay in the car where it was warm and quiet and go for a drive around Point Defiance for some Peace.

Lily gives crazy stare downs. Leif is wild and tried to steal his aunties breast milk

Just when I had built the coolest tower of my life, Leif made a beeline for it and T-I-M-B-E-R!

Lief and I slept in his room for the first time last night! J was not feeling hot and we didn’t want to catch it. Fun to camp in the “bush”!

One of my favorite treats lately. Teechino is non-acidic and caffeine free (it’s herbal coffee) and a tiny bit of black strap molasses is so sweet and yummy and also have 20% of your daily iron! Whoot! Take that blood!

Dinner tonight!  So good--greens, purple cabbage, carrots, chickpeas, avo, hummus made sans salt and oil, sweet potatoes, pumpkin seeds,and nutritional yeast. And oh yes, a little squirt of Brags
