Here are a few pictures to share...
|Jake's work had a family Lagoon day. Always some good people watching there.|
|This picture makes me smile. My class LOVED doing chalk art. The simple pleasures. The giggles they had tracing each other's bodies was my favorite.|
|I'm giving my class these little treat bags with Swedish fish that say You are o"fish"ally a second grader! I'm going to miss these little rugrats!|
Something else that has been consuming all my energy lately is this cleanse I am doing for two weeks. I have had a cough for about five years and been to the Dr. numerous times but have never found a solution. My mom has a friend with a daughter who has had the same thing. She found out she had something called Candida. I looked up online all the symptoms and I had most of them. SO I am doing something called the Candida diet. Basically I can't eat sugar, bread, yeast, or fruit for two weeks. I've had a few people say well, what do you eat? I kind of laugh because I still eat most of the same foods I eat already minus bread, dairy, fruit and the occasional treat. Yes, it's tough but it's not as bad as I thought it would be-but I'm only on day 3 today. I was worried that I would get a little sick but so far I have felt great! I've been a little hungry because I'm eating a lot less. But I have been eating a ton of Quinoa (this is the best grain ever and very good for you too. It's a good alternative to rice), red and yellow peppers, spinach, meat, asparagus, avocado, celery with almond butter (a healthy alternative to peanut butter). I have also been cooking with coconut oil. This is supposedly really good for cardiovascular health. I am so grateful that I was raised with a family with really healthy eating habits. If I ate crap and fast food every day of my life this diet would be super hard, but since I generally eat pretty healthy I'm feelin' great and maybe even convincing Jake to go on a "cleanse" next week. I'd modify it for him but he said, yeah I'll wait after the 4th of July. I said there's NEVER a good time to start a diet. So I'm holding you to it Jake! So hopefully with all this good eating and herb supplements, I will get rid of this nasty infection in my body. Another plus is that I've lost a few lb's. haha It's all about self control and I haven't cheated. Not even a little bit.
One last thing...I know most of you watch the Bachelorette. I'm sorry but Ashley just bugs me. There's not much to her and she's kind of dumb. And yes, I continue to watch it, but she just doesn't really do it for me. Does anyone else feel the same way or am I crazy??
