Life has been a little difficult as of late. We experienced a loss in our extended family of someone who was very near to all of us. I just needed a little break from busyness to focus on a little healing and family. Healing will take a long while, but we are working towards a new normal and give thanks for salvation and the opportunity to be with our Maker.
Our menu for this week may look non-detoxy. Our curveball in life left us with a some choices. Eating healthy is so very important, but some specialty items from specialty stores didn't get purchased, and poor planning on my part while we were out of town left us in a state of toxing. Yep, you read that right...toxing...not detoxing.
At times I feel as a bit of a failure, them other times I remind myself of what we heard at my church service. The progress is in the process. So true. We still have remained true to our morning shakes, limit our dairy, gluten, soy, sugar, and caffeine intake, but we have not done such a great job of following the program to a 'T'. Because of our choices, we have missed out on the benefits of increased energy and better sleep. It's kind of disappointing, but I am thankful for the knowledge of what needs to be done once life resumes to a bit more normalcy.
