Update 4/16/16

It's been a while since I've posted. I've written a few things, but each time I've gotten halfway through, stopped, and asked myself, "do people actually want to read this?" and then felt blasé about finishing writing it.

In these past few weeks, I've been to a Woodstock recreation that was freaking awesome, decided I want to start parting my hair in the middle even if it's not "in"(this is because of the Woodstock thing), not screwed up a big test, gotten my straddle split and realised after I got it that I injured myself doing it(I'm fine tho). I've also watched a few super-great and highly underrated movies. I really really want to talk about them but they're a secret until I can convince myself to be mature about my emotions.

Anywho, starting tomorrow, my fam and I are going to be eating vegetarian, as well as(hopefully) low carb and low fat, for a week. I won't be completely vegetarian because I preordered Chic Fil A for lunch on Tuesday but other than that...
I've dieted three times in the past: the first for a shallow reason(homecoming), the second for a good reason(sport training), and the third for a shallow reason(looking good in a bikini for a cruise). These were all long-term diets, which I had trouble sticking to. Sometimes you just need a lot of ice cream.
For the past month, I've been eating a lot of good food. Peeps, cookies, cake, COOKIE CAKe- I decided I needed to detox. Whatever that means. So I searched "one week detox" on Pinterest, and discovered that for the most part, it meant you couldn't eat anything besides dirt and morning dew. No sugar, no grain. You can have protein powder, though. And quinoa. Don't get me wrong, that's great if you're a fairy, but I identify more with the hobbit lifestyle.
I brought this up to my parents and they decided they were going to do the "detox" thing too, even if it's not really a detox. It's sort of cleansing, though.
We decided on vegetarian and low carb to be the main aim, and mi madre and I actually sat down and made a menu for the week. I'm really excited!

I'm going to be keeping a journal for each day of this coming week, so on either Saturday night or Sunday morning of next week I will post on how the cleans-y thing went. Wish me luck!
