Like most people, I probably overdid it on the sweets, carbs and liquor over the holidays, so say hello to Detox Mini Week 2014.
It's been a while since the last system reboot and I've been feeling kinda blergh lately, so I decided to try and squeeze in a four-or-five-day detox between weekends.
A friend of mine told me earlier, in regard to this whole reboot/detox thing, that I might live longer, but he'll live happier. While I get what he was trying to say (and it was in jest anyway), it's an invalid argument, for a few reasons.
Man, you know what I haven't had in a while? Capriotti's. So guess what terrific sub was dancing in my head while I was hungry as a mofo today?
Sometimes I envy people who have jobs where their actions are routine or comprising only reaction, like the guy who quality checks the box of cereal coming off the conveyor, or the supermarket cashier who swipes groceries across a UPC scanner.
Hunger can be pretty distracting. I guess this is why "they" are always stressing the importance of good nutrition in educational success for children. Works the same for adults.
I had a doughnut yesterday. It was one of those old-fashioned donuts from Starbucks, all cake-y and cinnamon-y and terrifically accompanying my iced decaf soy mocha. But it was still a doughnut, a 400-calorie, fat-and-cholesterol-rich pastry that I've held up as the antithesis of healthy living for almost three years.
I wrapped up Detox Week 2010 at one of the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino's Palazzo Suites celebrating the 10th anniversary of Penn & Teller in Las Vegas ... completely clean and sober. And having a grand time.
