So, while I’ve been in Korea I have done a lot of good things FOR myself… and a lot of bad things TO myself in the meantime. My health has not been very good – I’m on week six or seven (I’m losing count) of having my current cold. So, in an attempt to get a hold of things, I’m doing a "cleanse" as suggested by my moms and outlined for me by her friend Vicki. It isn’t even that hard – just nothing to eat or drink but raw veggies and fruits (although not at the same meal), the occasional nut, water and tea. I mean – ha ha! – I don’t even have to cook, right? But I already am noticing that there is no coffee or beer on that list of allowable food so I’m already feeling as though everyone is in for a bad week. And I do mean everyone; if I’m miserable… well, I will need some company, right?
I wasn’t going to put this news into my blog, mostly because I didn’t want to be held accountable to following through with this (I was planning on quitting either later today when pizza came into the staff room – that’s inevitable now that I am not supposed to eat it – or tomorrow when the first caffeine headache hit). But then I thought twice about it and I really would like to stick it through the seven days that I’m suppose to be on it. And this will be my way of making sure I do. Chocolate and coffee cravings cannot possibly any worse than having to publicly admit to being a pussy about giving into said cravings.
We’ll see how this goes.
I think the reason why I am worried about doing this is two-fold:
a. I don’t like vegetables (yah, yah, I’m freaking 10 years old).
b. I’m afraid of commitment (even if only for seven days).
