Bridget Jones’s Update of Clean Detox Day 24 or Day 10: BMI: 24.8 (+/-0.0) Plateau plateau. Activity Level: Yoga! Bright and Early. Meditation: 8 mins at Yoga, started the day off right I have to say. Brief Observations: I am pretty convinced that I am allergic to coconut. acne, rash and my lower intestines have declared a blockade. I’m pretty much the fiber-queen of the east coast right now. Not pleased or pleasing.
If someone would tell me I’d be allergic to coconut I’d laugh. In their face.
I love all forms of coconut: Almond Joy, Mounds, Donuts to cakes. Pina Coladas and now Clean Detox Shakes. Now I’ve found that I am allergic. It’s brought back rashes gone on my ring finger (Again, to my GP “I am NOT allergic to platinum. Move On!,”) my rosacea flared up, and my lower intestines are, for all intensive purposes, flipping me the bird. TMI but true.
I’ve tried to cut back on the coconut milk, but have come the sucktastic conclusion that my and Coconut milk will have to part ways. I can have coconut water, but no coconut milk. Still not the same.
So today I chucked the coconut. Let’s see if the blockade, rashes and eruptions end.
As for the boat part of the blog, the fam and I managed to check out the New England Boat Show.
Hundreds of boats, thousands of people, and Scooby Doo.
We spent the afternoon, checking out the wares, stalking Scooby (for the kids) and trying on a few “4-Hour Workweek” fantasies of ditching the house and living on the high seas (the kids can fend for themselves, they’re scrappy.)
With a few strategic Peanut M&M stops to keep the whining to a minimum we managed to cover what we wanted to see.
Few interesting observations of the affair:
- don’t underestimate the power of a person wearing a 6 foot fake fur dog suit. I thought Baby Lug was going pee in his pants (which he already does) AND throw panties at Scooby Doo a la Tom Jones. Whose panties? I don’t know.
- Peanut M&M’s are your best compadre when you have small kids. They get the chocolate fix, you get quiet and they’re mostly peanuts than candy.
- You wouldn’t know there was a bad economy. People were buying boats. Multiple boats. Hubby and I spent a good portion speculating whether they were recent lotto winners or self-made. We vow to buy more lotto tickets.
- Nothing gets your entrepreneurial juices flowing than visiting a show like this. For you it could be a car show, a home show, a vacation show (which was actually across the street.) It gets you to dream, to think and ponder your future. Nothing is written in stone, unless you have the chisel. I’d love to take the kids on a year-long trip on a boat. With satellite Internet access, you’ve got broadband, and with that you can work pretty much anywhere: dock, boat or beach. Make you think. Homeschooling is my only mental hurdle, that and not owning a boat. Ahhh, minor issues to be resolved.
And because I know you’re thinking about it, SNL’s “I’m on a Boat”:
