the stars have aligned for you, my readers of turnip! a rare thing has happened. i am having a great day and have time to write. yes, it's true. i have good days, too. seems like i've been writing posts on the rougher ones, however. sometimes i worry you all have drifted away and are no longer reading. i wonder if collectively you've just had to move on to more uplifting pastures.
there are no shortage of blogs to read, as you know!
but then, do i write for me? or do i write for you? turnip is really only useful in my life if i stick to the honest facts and feelings. so i guess knowing you are reading helps me come back again and again to tell my story.
so, um, are you out there? is it nice where you are? tell me about it, please.
can you tell i'm a little sassy today? what is that? someone is feeling better. nothing is really changed in my life, except my two sessions of colon hydrotherapy were very, er, productive. it was a brilliant detox and i think the emotional & mental release has been no less dramatic than the physical one. some of you are no doubt thinking that sounds good, but must have been uncomfortable. actually, for me it was lovely. a big ole zen pooping experience, one might say. it's quite amazing to get rid of toxic stuff that has been hanging around for possibly years.
after the second one i actually felt like the little pig in the movie babe (a great favorite of mine) when he stands in the sunshine and sings la la la la la la. it must be that feeling tired and shitty for so long means you are much more sensitive to feeling good. when it hits, like yesterday, watch out, baby!
today i got up at 7am, nearly 2 hours earlier than i've been managing of late. i jumped in the car and went to the lab to have blood drawn for some tests (had to be fasting) and was back home by 7:45. wow, i was falling over myself, eating breakfast before 8 and out the door walking to my studio before 10. yes, i said walking to my studio. which i now know the distance one-way is 1.5 miles, or 4,200 steps and took me 35 minutes.
it was actually quicker than i thought it would be and i am so proud of myself. i got alot accomplished at the studio. then came home this afternoon to start a batch of yogurt, eat a late lunch and take a little nap.
as i write this at 7pm, i just peeked at my pedometer and it said 9,435 steps!
now that is a good day. oh, and it wasn't rainy today, either. thanks, mother nature for giving me a break today, i really needed it.
