30 went and did something to me. I can only explain it the way my 3 yr old explains anything random, magic. I´m suddenly very aware of my habits. Many of them don´t even fit me anymore (like the all too occasional cigarette) but I do them anyway.
Well, 30 is a great age to break habits and become anew.
It isn´t just being 30. I´m tired. And yes, I am aware two small children will do that to you, especially when you have to cook most meals from scratch and hang your laundry. But I think it´s more than that. I used to do some sort of daily physical activity, other than cart 40 kilos to the park. I used to eat roughage on a regular basis. And I never drank coke. Brazil undid that last one for me.
So what to do about it? I´ve decided, true to rash Rachel ways, do some sort of cleanse. That´s where you guys come in. I know nothing about this stuff. I´ve heard about the master cleanse but refuse to do that one. Yuck for one reason and because I wouldn´t even know where to get cayenne pepper here. Oh and we can´t forget that good maple syrup is far too sacred in Brazil to drink in a cup with lemon. Oh the sacrilege!
Anyway, I would love if anyone could recommend something that won´t just wipe me out completely. I know, eat health, start slow, breath, etc etc. Not my thing people. I need a jump start. Strap me in, I´m ready for a shock!
In all seriousness, I do want a jump start. I want to start living a cleaner and more energetic life. I realize that my energy levels, moods, and all around health are not just a given anymore. It takes me 2 days to recover from staying up late for heaven´s sake. Don´t even ask me how long it takes to get over a night out drinking!
So let´s Detox. Anyone with me? What steps do I take?
