I’m Doing a Body Cleanse

Not sure if you all remember this:



Or this:



Or way back in the day, this:


(I used to have semi-musculature!)


But here’s what’s been happening:


Hold on…I need to find the most apt word…


The one that really sums up my healthy activities of the last three months.


It needs to the just-the-right word.


Realllly perfect.






I got it, Jove!


It’s nothing.


Nothing’s been happening.


A BIG, FAT absence of something.


I have sat on my butt and unexercised less in the past few months than in all the trimesters of my pregnancies put together.


I am so unhealthy. Like, really, grossly, unkemptly, portly-ey, greasily, gassily, unhealthy.


I don’t even CRAVE green things anymore. Unless the green thing is made with a soft serve ice cream dispenser or Wesson Corn Oil.


In addition, I think high fructose corn syrup is a vegetable.


And there are more nachos in my gut than rosaries in Rome.


So when, yesterday, a lovely, glowing woman of health asked me if I wanted to cleanse next week, I said no.


But then my ass said yes.


And because my ass could smother me in my sleep, my ass won.


So I will cleanse.


With this stuff:



And there are solids on the plan, so I will not die of liquid asphyxiation, I hope. (Each day I get two fresh pressed green juices, a superfood smoothie, raw soup, salad, immunity elixir, teas, supplements, and other amazing items of health!)


I start Monday.


And I end Monday. (I’m just testing it out, see.)


But apparently my healthy button will be re-set and so will my ass deflato button.


Stay tuned!


And if you live in San Diego, there’s a special going on this cleanse until November 10. Let me know if you’re interested in knowing what it is, and I will tell you who to contact.

P.S. I’ve never done a “cleanse” before unless you count the six days before Prom ’85 when I only ate candy corn.

    That actually looks pretty good. And the salad looks gourmet! Wish they delivered to Santa Barbara.

  2. green girl in wisconsin says:

    Good luck cleansing. I’ve never had any urge to try that, even though people claim it makes them feel great.

  3. Chrisy says:

    I love the idea of a cleanse! I did the Master Cleanse for three days once. I was starving, but I liked it and it worked. That salad in the photo is making me hungry. Can’t wait to hear how things go. Good luck and cleanse hard! XO

  4. Good luck – and I would totally sign up for the candy corn cleanse.

  5. Mama Mary says:

    I want to try a cleanse, desperately. In fact, it should be on my bucket list post from today. Maybe in the new year. Can I sign up for the discount, but wait til January to do it?

  6. I can’t wait to hear how this goes.


    I’m a little freakishly interested. Which is disturbing, but I’m telling myself it’s because I’m really into health.

    Or candy corn.

    I have a friend doing the master cleanse. I am thinking about doing it myself. I donno if I can not eat tho. Is this cleanse you are doing available only in San Diego?

  8. The only cleanse I’ve ever done was prep for colon surgery – but hey, being sick helped me lose 5 pounds!

    Now I’m healthy and can eat anything I want and guess what? 5 pounds came back!

    How much are the dues for the Ass Assocation of America?
