Life Bar Cleanse: Day 2

I can gladly say that Day 2 was better than Day 1. It's hard to write this post right now since I'm winding down Day 3 and am a teensy bit grumpy...just a bit. But I'll press on. I mostly forgot to take pictures because I was actually enjoying the smoothies. Up first was an Avocado Dream drink and it was delish. I sipped on my way home.

ImageI kind of forgot to take pictures at this point which is why you're getting an empty cup. This smoothie was marked as GFL and I don't really know what was in it. I could look up the ingredients but I can't be bothered.

ImageNumber 3 was pretty damn good. And I don't even like chocolate. But it was a Chocomaca or something and it was basically a chocolate shake.

ImageAt this point I quit taking pictures. I had class at 4pm so I drank number 4 while driving and number 5 during class. Number 4 was the Easy Being Green (clever right?) smoothie and it was what you'd expect. Green. But it was good. Number 5 was something marked Healer. I don't know what that means but it tasted fine. I finished up with Number 6 while working on a paper when I got home and it was called Gorilla's Delight. I'm pretty sure it has insects in it. Not in a bad way...if there's a good way to include insects in a drink. I only meant it like gorillas eat insects. Get it? Bad joke after bad joke...anyhow, it is semi-chocolately but it's got something else too. Probably insects. 

Unfortunately there's really nothing to report. I feel completely normal and I'm overall kind of disappointed. I was hoping to feel like Superwoman or something but really I just feel like normal. I also haven't lost any weight. And I didn't explicitly do this to lose weight, but I was hoping to see a little dip from consuming nothing but good things. But I guess I'd have to do this for a lot longer than 3 days. It's still disappointing. I'm not sure what I've been hoping for but I think I just wanted something. We'll see. Maybe at the end of Day 3 I'll notice something...until then my friends :)

Year 30

Is this thing on? I've been struggling with a bit anxiety out of nowhere over the past year and a half so in an attempt to keep my head from spinning I'm going to try my return to writing.

I turned 30 in February and it's seriously been my best year. Suddenly I stopped caring so much about things, and more about *gasp* my family and friends. Weird right? But in caring more about people, I also started to care less about their opinions on my life choices. That said, I am going to provide you with a VERY brief rundown of the 3 major life events happening right now:

We are buying a house! Maybe... Yay right? Back in October I found this really great house under a lease option contract that we ended up snatching up. It's in a nice, established neighborhood where *most* people own and genuinely take care of their houses. Not at the Hank Hill lawn level but I'm talking seasonal outdoor decorations and it just happens to be the neighborhood other parents bring their kids t…

Burn the Past

One of my old pastors used to say "God gave you two ears and one mouth so you could listen twice as much". I've always been a pretty decent listener. I was always in the top 5 during games of Simon Says and with a mother like mine, you needed to do your best to prevent her repeating herself. But one area where I really struggle is listening to what God says to me and what direction to go in my life. I'm a control freak. There, I said it. There have been times in my life where I've had to schedule not only when I would have free time but what I would do during said free time. I've literally put "watch tv" on my calendar. So is it any surprise that when someone says to "let go and let God" I have trouble leaving my entire life and existence to someone other than myself? Not only that, but someone who isn't a someone at all? To someone I can't see, don't understand, don't know how to listen to and just have to have blind faith…

Guess Who's Back

Sometimes my thoughts get really overwhelming and when that happens I usually have to do something active and relatively creative. I've been using coloring books since before they were cool and strangely baking is still a big go-to for me but there's also writing. Today while lamenting to the husband he suggested I write a blog to try to just get shit out. So that's what I'm doing.

We are moving back to Louisville. Yay? I guess that's still TBD. I love Louisville, I really do and I have for years but like a weird, slightly dysfunctional, long term relationship, love just wasn't enough. I felt trapped and suffocated. I had created this identity box for myself and while it worked for a while it eventually turned into my coffin. It was tiny and I didn't feel like it could fit everything I wanted to be a part of my identity. 15 months ago I was exercise and non-profit worker Rennay. That's it. When we moved I realized it was a true clean slate. Absolutely n…
