Day 4

Even after 4 days I feel calmer. Maybe the sugar is working its way out of my system. Or maybe all the green leafy vegies are working their magic. But I feel more considered and in control. I'm getting the hang of making each choice a healthy choice. Early days, I know. 

The warm water with a squeeze of (home grown) lemon is a great way to move into the day. It slows me down and reminds me about my health. I never drink enough water, and golly, some of my most memorable headaches have been dehydration ones. So to get two big glasses in before I've done anything else makes me feel like a total hydration rock star.  

An excellent green smoothie (baby spinach, celery, apple, pear, strawberry) and a cup of dandelion root tea and I was ready for the final day of my solo parenting gig. Dandelion root is apparently excellent for liver care. My liver and I need to be better friends so I'm giving it a whirl.  My liver has a big job to do as it no longer has a gall bladder to help it out. Long, sad story. The gallbladder is Robin to the livers Batman, if you will. From what I can work out our liver is the biggest organ in the body and has a mighty job to do in terms of filtering. It would seem the cleaner I eat, the less work it has to do.  Who knows, with a new work-life balance my liver might like to write a novel or learn a language. The possibilities are endless. 

There was some processed sugar circulating today in the name of Melbourne Cup festivities. My liver and I abstained. Dandelion root tea, anyone?
