I changed the wallpaper on my phone from a bad ass image of Wonder Woman shaking her fist at the world to a vintage mom-ish looking woman in the kitchen. The new image has text that says, "another day in paradise". Both inspirational, the second just a bit less angsty.I changed my diet. Twenty two days ago today, I cut alcohol out of my life completely (yes, I had a dry Christmas and New Years), and so began a thirty day detox (which hasn't been easy!)...Not drinking made me feel like a real rebel over the holidays.
It's amazing how sneaky red wine can be. Some red wine is really good at taking the edge off of a stresser of a day, but when I found that an evening at home just wasn't complete without it, I needed to show myself who was boss.

Self discipline is never a reliable force without a lot of focus. I've really had to devote myself to clarity, my health, and my goal. It is all paying off however, as I am finding the world to be wonderful without a few glasses of wine.
I'm typing this while drinking some fresh juiced carrot, cucumber, and beet juice because I have felt so great this last week that I thought I would take my thirty day detox to a new level. I started a mostly raw diet per Natalia Rose's twenty one day detox plan. Dark chocolate is permissible so I think I'll be able to stick with it.
