Detoxed (not really)

Well, emerged from the one-week detox plan.
The good news - I think I'm finally ready to go to one cup of coffee a day. Sorry, I refuse to give up coffee. There are way too many awesome blends to deny yourself (unless you absolutely have to).

Otherwise - after two days - a mix of tomatoes, cilantro, spinach and spinach is really vile. But I honestly feel a lot better and the past week at work, I think my productivity has improved. I've also noticed my journaling was sharper. Of course, a lot of that detox went by the wayside last night when I went on a 20-mile bike ride with a few friends - we made a pit stop at this dive steak house and I had three tacos and three glasses of beer. Needless to say, riding back was fun during 80-percent humidity.

Saturday I'm catching Frank Black play an acoustic show at Sokol. Thank god I checked this out. I was so used to having to go to shows on Sunday, I pretty much was convinced this show was a Sunday show for the past month.
