Expectation: Today is the day I quit coffee. How exciting it will be to finally get all my energy from the Sun's universal life giving power. I will drink in the day with new eyes, finally clear headed and pure of heart. I will have hot water with lemon.
Reality: Not a chance. It's 8:30am. I've woken up late and I'm still exhausted. I compromise and decide to not have my coffee right away. I last four minutes.
Expectation: Exercise is my friend. It will get my chi flowing in such a way that brilliant ideas will bubble forth like a well timed geyser. I will greet the day with my cup full of creative possibility.
Reality: The couch is my friend. I sit there beyond the point of reason. I finally change into my workout clothes, pop in a Tracy Anderson DVD and lace up my sneakers. Being so close to actually working out sends me back to the couch…where I call Erin. I beg her to stay on the phone with me until I feel like working out. We're on the phone for an hour and a half.
Expectation: Time to post about Clean. I will explain all of the programs virtues in an artful yet comprehensive manner. People will finally understand the merits of giving their digestion a break and ridding their body of potentially harmful allergens.
Reality: I got nothin'. Every thing I write sounds like I'm describing the Slim Fast Diet. I heat up more of the coffee I'm not supposed to be drinking.
Expectation: My To Do list is my bitch. I am a moving, shaking warrior princess of accomplishment. I contemplate running for congress.
Reality: My To Do list is laughing at me. It's shouting, "Hey, 'warrior princess'….why don't you spend some more time checking Facebook. Maybe someone posted a dancing cat video on your wall."
Expectation: Day 1 of the detox is a huge success. I already feel my soul a buzz with the interconnected light of all being. I am one day closer to peace and total balance.
Reality: Hmmm…coffee good.

P.S. Rough start notwithstanding, I will have my food log up later today. (She says optimistically...)
