Here’s my work outfit today:
The high-waisted skirt was not so adorable IRL – imagine a belted sausage with legs, and furthermore, that this sausage is also wearing the J. Crew Contrast Stitch Perfect Shirt. After viewing self in mirror, particularly the horrible side view, was almost happy that I had agreed to start the Master Cleanse (“MC”) today with a friend. (If unfamiliar with the MC, its basically a lemonade fast . . .)
Day 1 of MC has been pretty easy so far. I even made my husband and stepson pancakes this morning (now a permanent, once a week, weekday ritual) and wasn’t tempted by their steamy sweet buttery goodness. Okay, maybe a little bit tempted, but did not succumb. There is also enough maple syrup in just today’s MC lemonade for 3 or 4 breakfasts – difficult to justify cheating. It’s now close to 5 p.m. and my stomach is rumbling a little bit, but I don’t feel hungry yet. Have a class tonight, and will miss dinner with the boys, but probably am better off without watching them eat their pizza, giant burgers, milk shakes, etc . . .
