what we like, think, do, wish, create

So my soccer Saturday got a little jumbled because 7/8 of the way through the game I rolled, or sprained, or turned my ankle and had to retire.  I was excited to be playing, though the running at lunch time didn’t seem to help me at all.  Since soccer is mostly anaerobic–lots of starting and stopping and turning and sprinting–the endurance is very different than 4-mile runs.  So,  I did the best I could but realized I was fatigued (and when you’re fatigued in soccer, oy vey, it shows and affect your ability to play well).  But I had kinda gotten over that and then, DOH, stepped unknowingly on the outside of my foot.  Maybe it’s God, or the World, telling me to slow down and take it easy.  I’ve done this three or four times, usually playing outdoor soccer.   I think I’ll buy new cleats (and take a few weeks off).

I made the pineapple mango smoothie this morning with coconut pieces but no agave syrup.  My kitchen sink has clogged due to some of the CLEAN blended/juiced refuse, but I poured some liquid plumber down’t–the garbage disposal is broken–and am crossing my fingers that it works (although it’s difficult to type with ifgrsne crossed).

That dream sounds like a whirlwhind, or like the thunderstorm we had last night!  I think I had one bad dream, a scary one a few days ago.  Can’t really remember it, but we were all in danger.  My mood has been a little cranky-oriented at times, when it’s been four or five hours without more than a few nuts, but it rebounds.  Rosanna and Paul are talking to me about the cleanse now at work, and the CAP team knows too (everyone on Friday asked, when I fled to go to the gym during the free pizza lunch, where I was going, but someone said, “Oh!  the cleanse” and frowned sympathetically).  For those who aren’t fully supported, they’re both interested.   A similar look of relief that people had when they found out you and I went to college together and didn’t just meet online across international boundaries, pops up when they find out I can still eat solid foods at lunch and it’s not the master cleanse.  Apparently a lot of people have had bad experiences with friends doing the master cleanse.

I need to read the book more.  Maybe I’ll do that today since I can’t really walk.  Was hoping to pack, but I think it’s too mobile.  Maybe I’ll watch a movie too.  Spent $150 at the co-op yesterday so I have lots of new interesting foods.  Malodextrin is one of the No metals or something?  I’ll look it up.  I got mesquite powder, which they said was white cacao powder, but it was organic and the carob powder wasn’t.  The TPSS Co-op is a whole new world on the Cleanse, love.  they have most of the stuff, and in those DIY containers in the back.  I got a lot of almond butter–so exciting.  I’m not craving sugar as much, and I get full more quickly.  It got to be about 90 and humid during soccer and I though I might keel over and die (but I didn’t).  The cats are being really cute–Leo’s especially being friendly.  I’ll miss them.  They, even being locked out of the room, were making Matt sneeze–he’s allergic–so I thought, okay this move away from them is good, Matt (and dug–who’s coming to visit July 1-4) can come visit and not have to worry about sneezing, running nose, itchy eyes, or trouble breathing.

Psyched to seeee you and talk tomorrow.  What time did we decide?  3pm your time, 4 mine?  I am pumped for the farmer’s market.  Maybe I’ll try to get up to go to the Seeker’s Church http://www.seekerschurch.org/   There are a bunch of them in DC.  We’ll see, I went to one at the Potter’s House and it was okay.

I love this blog.  I love that you set it up.  Should we write everything everything here, or should some things be saved for email?  I ask in order to be PoMo.  😉   Maybe this should be a post comment or reply instead of a new post?  I signed up finally on the CLEAN forum.  They had erased my first attempt because I took too long filling it out.  I could be on there all day.  Need to warm up some of the chicken veggie leftovers from last night.  I am soaking brazil nuts right now to make nut milk.

Hope yoga was good!  wish i was stretchin it with you.  I am happy it’s summer.  Once I leave work, everything’s a little lighter, even during downpours.  Hope your dreams improve!  Maybe I’ll try to meditate or stretch before bed as preventative medicine.  This just came out, I haven’t read it yet but it looks exciting: http://www.healthcare.gov/center/councils/nphpphc/index.html

Gonna sit here now, with my foot covered in a green towel over an ice pack, and my ears hurting for now reason, and feel purrfectly serene and at ease, as Leo seems over on that large plastic bag.  He seems to have reached the third B in Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

See you here soon My One,

Brian

  1. Yay! I love reading your posts (letters, texts, love notes, etc.). Glad you like this blog thing. Hm, not sure what you mean by PoMo?

    So sorry to here about your ankle, love. I hope it’s not a long-lasting injury. But either way, I like your attitude – maybe it’s time to take it easy, spend more time on things that don’t require running or fast jerking movement – like juicing! And writing! And still life drawing! 😉 Or whatever. Can you still do yoga at least with a hurt ankle? Some of the poses, not all?

    Ooh pineapple mango coconut sounds so good! And wow I can only imagine the disneyland that the TM co-op must be for this kind of thing – can I live vicariously through you? Can you take pictures – some of the cool things you buy, or if there’s a wondrously clean part of the store you want to show me? Speaking of, there’s been many meals lately that I’ve wished I’ve taken pictures of. Can we share pics of what we’re making/eating? I think it’ll be a good record of our journey, and not only that but a good reminder when we’re not cleansing anymore that this kind of diet can be really good! And varied! When I tell people all the foods I CAN’T have they look at me like I’m crazy – “is there anything left??” But then I look at my plate and it looks and feels abundant! Today I really went to town cause it was such an active morning – tons of biking – first to centro and back, then to slow food, then to yoga – and then yoga was with Raul, who likes to kick our asses! We were all dripping sweat, taking unauthorized breaks, wow. Anyway, so then after another bike trip to yet another ecotienda, I came home at 2 starving! So I heated up my leftovers and made a salad – notable new ingredients include some sort of squat round squash and sprouts and it was so good!

    Tell me how your brazil nut milk turns out! I haven’t tried making my own nutmilk yet – only the rice horchata which wasn’t actually clean as it was made with white rice…..good for you! And I’m soooo jealous of your almond butter! I’m going to imagine eating it….yum…

    Ok back to whatever it is I’m doing with myself today. Wish I were there to nurse you to health, love. 🙂 Take care of yourself….I’m so proud of you for really diving into this with me, and so glad!

    Love,
    Ali
