Doings & a Not-Doing.

Wrote an awesome post at Work It Mom.
So, if you want to send a parcel to your family/friends in time for Christmanukahnzaa, you need to read my post for some DOs, DON'Ts, and valuable tips.  And leave a comment while you're there!

Finished an herbal detox/cleanse on November 18.  
My naturopath encouraged me to do one to help flush out the excess estrogen I have in my system.  I didn't want to blog about it until I had something worth reporting.  And now I do: I gained 5 pounds.
Yup, we have a winner, folks!  I'm probably the only person in the history of 'people-doing-detoxes' who put on weight instead of losing it, because I used the detox as license to eat too many of these...

grilled ementhal cheese sandwich with way too much butter... yum
But that was then.  THIS is now...

Had a REAL 100% Primal Day.
No grain and no sugar, lots of natural movement -- if you can in fact call what those weird glowing people on Just Dance 3 make us do "natural movement".  It's dance, so it's all good, I guess.
Bonus:  I've already lost a couple of pounds since I started early this week!

Put the finishing touches on a scarf I promised to knit a very funny friend last year.
It was actually done, um, last year, but I decided to open the box and add some unique touches that are perfectly HIM.

Did not grow a mo.
That was Roomie's job.  His team will be taking a group Mo-Bro pic.  Maybe they'll let me share it here.
Meanwhile, here he is on Day 17 to tide you over.  It had already moved from 70s pron mo to almost the awesomeness that it is today.

He's so HAWT!


  1. Detoxing on grilled sandwiches? That is priceless!

  2. That would happen to me. Detox and gain weight, although those sandwiches do look delicious.

  3. I have never done a cleanse and want to so badly. Knowing me, I'd probably gain weight on it too :P

  4. Oh my God, really, you gained weight on a detox? I really thought you kind of starve, like not even cheese and bread allowed. Did it work at least? I mean, reduction of estrogen?
