sick/ detox.

May 10th, 2010 at 11:55 pm

I seem to have gotten DF's flu. It seems inevitable when you're sharing the same space for roughly 15 hours a day. My friend also has it too. Must be going around with the change of seasons. So far it's just a head cold for me. Fingers crossed I shake it off at that, DF had the whole body thing, aches, pains, dizzy etc. But he also had to work non stop. I am working 6 days this week, but today and tomorrow are easy office job days.

Last week I started thinking again about trying out a detox-type thing for a couple of weeks. This was before I got sick - maybe an even better idea now that I have gotten sick! Might give my body a makeover, internally atleast.
And no, none of that 'buying a box of stuff from the chemist' type of detox. That is not what I mean when I say 'detox'. I mainly mean reducing intake of harsh ingredients, chemicals and processed foods.

Technically I eat/use/take a lot less of the above mentioned than the average person anyway. 'Average' being relative, of course. Smile

But, this will be an interesting exercise anyway. I think the main thing for me is cutting out coffee. I've been thinking about it for a while so I might give it a try. The problem is that I really enjoy a nice cup of coffee. I don't drink it for the caffeine effect, I just really like the taste and the smell. LOL.

Anyways. Time to get my sick self motivated to do some work, so I can go home soon!

    Ugh, I'm off caffeine for a little while to help clear up a minor health problem, and I hate it! Today is the first full day and I have a headache and very little energy. I drink coffee for the lift as well as the smell and taste. I should make some decaf tea just to have the sensation of drinking something hot...

    I go off coffee temporarily now and then for various reasons, but I'm comfortable with it being a lifelong vice. LOL.

    ceejay: same lol, i often don't have it for a few days and suffer the headaches. i have no idea why, really, seeing as i know i'll go straight back to drinking it. but in my twisted way of thinking, if i 'un-addict' myself temporarily, every so often, it technically means that I'm not addicted. Smile well, it makes more sense in my head anyway...

    mrs & househopeful: thanks Smile starting to feel a bit better!
