Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning!
yesterday I said I was feeling better already it was actually kinda an
off day. Both my son and I were a tad bit on the grumpy side. It's been
cold outside and pretty gloomy with the sun hidden behind endless grey
skies so I'm going to attribute our mood to the lack of sunlight. As if
we are plants :)
Today I did NOT want to get out of bed.
gone to sleep with a headache last night that I'd assumed was from
detox symptoms already. You know, detoxing from the breads, dairy and
America's favorite drug- WHITE SUGAR. It was actually so bad that I
couldn't fall asleep. Well, the headache pain in combination with
hearing about a longtime school friend's father's tragic death that I'd
read on Facebook just after climbing into bed for the night. Then, just
as I thought I was falling asleep I got a text from my father about the
accident. So, after another half hour of pain in my head and then pain
in my heart for my friend, I broke down and took a tramadol. Which
ended up possibly helping me fall asleep but I awoke with a headache
again this morning so maybe it wasn't worth taking it at all. I HATE
taking prescription drugs. I'm kinda disappointed in myself for even
going to the doctor earlier in the month to get the prescription. Then
again, I was taking prescription pain pills anyway and they weren't even
mine so I figured if I was going to take them I should get my own
script. At least I only take a half or maybe a full one when I can't
stand it anymore. It's not like I take them all the time.
this morning, because of my headache, I did sleep in a little longer
than normal. So I was a bit rushed by the dogs wanting to go outside
and that meant that I have not meditated or chanted yet today. It's
4:12 already so I'll do both later tonight before bed. But I did repeat
the prayer "Help me to perform whatever miracles you want of me today"
several times before the dogs got too rambunctious.
Starting tomorrow I've decided to start separate morning and evening prayers in addition to the meditation and chanting.
I've decided to dedicate every mornings prayer
to my best friend who is fighting bone marrow cancer and the resulting
leukemia the cancer created. (After my own prayer about miracles.)
met my dear friend a few years ago through a dating website for married
people who want to have affairs. Yep, you read that correctly.
Although we originally met for what we thought was to be a short time in
our lives, we soon realized we were soul mates. Let me clarify that.
We have such an intense FRIENDSHIP, such love and compassion and understanding of each other, that it's obvious, at least to me, that we have known each other in another lifetime. Therefor, we are soul mates.
Not that we are destined to be lovers or anything like that, just that
we recognized something so strong and pure and clear in each other that
we've been best friends nearly from the very first phone call. It's a
friendship unlike any other I've ever had. We just accept each other the way we are. And, we're always honest with each other.
Okay, onto YOGA!
is the routine I did three
times today (plus a few extra moves from yesterday's just to stretch out
some muscles I thought today's had missed). I did notice almost
immediately the intense use of my wrists again today. I'm so glad that I
didn't do any yesterday so that today my wrists were okay.
I love the whole idea of SUN SALUTATIONS! I just only wished there were a sun out today that I could SEE!
Now for the SMOOTHIES!
started the day as usual with my lemon, honey, cinnamon hot water
followed by my upside-down coffee. Then, of course, I did my yoga.
Then I made this smoothie
FRESH YOUNG TAHITIAN COCONUT WATER, FRESH PINEAPPLE, BANANA, CELERY LEAVES, DANDELION LEAVES, CILANTRO AND ONE KALE LEAF
should have put ginger root in it but I forgot. It was perfectly yummy
as it was though and I could taste that slight saltiness of the celery
which I definitely needed :)
Okay, for this afternoon's
recipe I took the meat from the young Tahitian coconut I used from this
morning and added it to the blender with enough water to make 4 cups of
coconut (meat) milk. Then I put half into a jar and put in the fridge
to use tomorrow. Then I made this smoothie
CUPS COCONUT (MEAT) MILK, 3 HUGE HANDFULS MIXED BABY ROMAINE, 1,000 MG
EACH POWDERED SPIRULINA AND CHLORELLA, A BANANA AND 2 CUPS BLUEBERRIES
WITH A HEAPING TABLESPOON CHIA SEEDS
that's all for today :) As mentioned at the beginning I plan on
meditating, chanting and doing bedtime prayers tonight <3 a="" already.="" brighter="" feel="" honestly="" i="" nbsp="" outlook="" p="">3>
