When I woke up, I had to make sure this wasn't just a dream. And then I went ahead and got my airline tickets. Wow. It's really going to happen.
The first day of March was a snow day, and while I definitely needed it and got caught up on a lot of things today, the snow can melt now. I did get my 7 miles in during the snow storm, and I have to admit, that made me feel kind of tough.
The rest of the snow day was normal inside shenanigans. We colored, Skyler made clay from scratch, we built stuff with blocks, made messes, and watched a movie.

Okay, Clean Food! First, if you haven't read it yet, my friend Heather wrote an article for Sparrow's Spring issue about the Clean Food Challenge and it's excellent.
My day, even though I was home and out of my routine, went just fine. In fact, I was grocery shopping by 8:30 am and got restocked and resettled for the last few days of the Cleanse.
Breakfast: the usual (oatmeal, blueberries, coffee)
More breakfast: (it was a snow day) canteloupe, some bites of Skyler's eggs, some walnuts.
On the way to my run: Banana
On the way home from my run: Blueberry Muffin Lara Bar (technically a processed food, but the ingredients are dates, blueberries, cashews, and vanilla extract.) Very delicious.
Afternoon Activity: Juicing! We made juice with 1 cucumber, 6 carrots, 5 apples, 1 pear, 1 lime.
Dinner: I tried brown rice pasta! It was, well, okay. I was told to be careful not to overcook it or it gets slimy, so I ended up under-cooking it a bit.
That's it! Day 5 is in the books. I think it must get easier the more times I do this cleanse, because I am not having any major cravings or anything.
I have heard from a lot of people who seem to be doing well too. Keep up the good work... almost done!
