Hey everyone. Sunday morning and I'm wishing the weekend wasn't flying by quite so quickly. Things have been going well. My lunch on Friday was cancelled, so I was incredibly excited. I ate a Lean Cuisine for lunch and everything was all good. By the end of the day I was so tired though, and I ended up skipping the gym. I also had a glass of white wine. Okay so things weren't great really. Maybe I shouldn't put these limits on myself. I know that if I don't set these goals, I won't have anything to shoot for. But it seems like I screw up even if I do set goals. So I'm not exactly sure what to do.

The good news is; I kept it to only a little wine and I went home and went to bed early so I could go on a bike ride yesterday. The boy and I were out on our ride for over 90 minutes and went about 18 miles. It was great and I feel awesome about that and I definitely think I made up for skipping the gym Friday. I'm also up early today so I can go to the gym and work off the french fries I ate last night. I stayed within my calorie limit but I just feel bad about eating them. I think I have serious guilt issues right now that I need to deal with.

I've been toying with the idea of doing a detox, maybe just for a couple of days or maybe even for longer. But I'm not sure what I'd do exactly and I'm not sure if its a good idea or not. I think it might help me get back on track, but I also think it might put me in a crappy mood and make my state of mind even worse. Anyone have any experience with detox? What did you guys do? For how long? Did it feel good? Was it worth it? Any advice would be appreciated.

I haven't done this myself, but I found the ideas in The Tao of Health, Sex & Longevity ( interesting. A friend of mine recommended this book, and it was recommended to her by a friend who does the fast a couple of times a year. My friend was in the middle of it when we talked and she said it was going well. The only thing is, you can't really do ANY physical activity while you're fasting because your energy level is so low. Anyway, something to think about. It's an interesting book even if you don't do the fast.
