A Change of Heart

19 October 2011

What I'm Wearing: 
Chunky knit cardigan from Vero Moda
Basic white t-shirt from Heatons
Grey jersey fringe scarf from Accessorize
1969 Always Skinny jeans from GAP
Charcoal calf boots from Dune
Brown leather Modalu London Kiera bag c/o Shopalike UK

I am not a fan of the hair today...I was just too lazy to do anything with it this morning, so I scrunched it with some curl mousse and blow dried it but I'm not happy with the result.  I think it needs a cut, actually!

Also after much pleading & begging, my hubby convinced me to do the 3 Day Juice Detox with him -- argh!  I know I probably sound like a hypocrite because I'm totally eating my words from yesterday "NO I am not doing the detox" -- hahaha...  But poor Jonathan, it really is half the battle if you do it together.  I just want to be clear on one thing, normally I'm totally against detox "diets" of any kind or fad things and I have never done anything like this before.  In other words, I freaking love my food guys!!  But when Jonathan started this morning I was intrigued, he made me read this book and I figured, "oh what the heck" so I'll give it a go.  Having said that I do have two veggie burgers on call, just in case of emergency.  Jonathan has a packet of jelly squirms with a hand-written note taped to them "In Case Of Emergency" hahaha!  

So we've completed Day 1 and it's actually not as difficult as I thought.  I think what helps a lot is that we're in it together, so we don't feel so isolated or deprived because we're basically just spending all our time at home with the doggies avoiding any strenuous exercise and taking frequent naps.  We sound like OAPs, I know.  But it's quite relaxing and the fruit & veggie juices taste amazing!  Plus, tomorrow we get a smoothie for breakfast with live yogurt -- OMG I am so looking forward to that!!  I don't feel hungry really, or deprived because the juices fill you up.  Tonight for dinner we had one blended with avocado, which gave a much welcomed texture to the juice.  

If any of you are interested in doing something like this, please stay tuned as I promise to give my 100% honest feelings throughout the entire process.  I am the ultimate detox critic so I will not be so quick to say "OMG this makes me feel amazing!!!" when really I feel like poo and would happily wolf down a pizza.  I will make sure to keep you updated on how I do!  And if I fail, well at least I have my veggie burgers!

Stay Stylish!
