Last week I did a three day detox juice cleanse with most of the girls I work with. It was awesome, and addictive!!! We did it through a raw food cafe in Rye, NY.

Coconut water, a green juice, electrolight lemonade, a blended soup, a green salad and an almond milk...but I don't eat nuts, so my milk was substituted for another green juice. I wasn't hungry at all and other than the caffeine headache, I loved it. We all did, one of the girls even lost 7lbs.

The girls who didn't do it first time around, are doing it this week and some of the girls who DID do it, are doing it again. It really is addictive. I feel SO great and would love to do another 3 days...and I think I might after my Birthday, next week.

Happy New Year

Thursday, January 1, 2009

2008 ended (thankfully) with neither pomp nor circumstance. It's last few weeks were actually rather uneventful....

No pregnancy
A couple of dates I'd rather forget
Lots of work
Fun Holiday drinks/dinners with friends
and a Ponzi Scheme

2009 began with a thump....literally....I drove over a pot hole on my way home last night and, consequently, have a flat tire.

I met friends for New Year's Eve dinner in NY, then a party in Jersey. I had planned on staying at my ex husband's seeing as he's away and I could take Ollie with me. I'd driven in during the snow storm in the afternoon, got Ollie settled and got myself spruced up for some fun and frivolity. I must say, I'm not a huge fan of NYE, especially in turns into amateur hour, but I had friends in from out of town, and would have gone anywhere to spend time with them.

I got back to the apartment and felt weird staying there, so I packed up my stuff and Ollie and I drove home at 2am. I'm usually good at spotting pot holes, before I drive over them, but this one just appeared out of nowhere!!! As soon as I'd run over it, I knew, but it took a while for the tire pressure light to come on and by that time, I was, thankfully, just about home. It was about 10 degrees F and I was NOT going to get out and walk, so I limped the car home.

I've organized for it to be towed to the dealership in the morning, but today, I'm stuck at home. Thank goodness I have homemade soup in the freezer.

May 2009 be a wonderful, healthy and prosperous year for everyone...
