The Clean Slate Day 7


Day 7 was a work day. So I was up in beautiful Los Angeles, cooking all morning. Unfortunately, (like I mentioned last post) I had not gotten a good night sleep, I was battling a headache, and feeling quite nauseous. So my meals were mostly an attempt to calm my stomach and keep me awake. Carbs, carbs, carbs. By the time dinner rolled around, the nausea was gone. Hallelujah!

Due to my tired state, I also took it easy with the exercise. I got out for a quick walk before heading to yoga. Can’t say that it was my favorite day of the Clean Slate, but sometimes that’s life, you know? In spite of days like that, I’ve gotta say that I am truly blessed to live in such a beautiful state, to have the resources to feed myself fresh and delicious food, and friends and family who love and care about me.

What are you thankful for today?
