crazy funk 

so for the last few weeks i have been in a crazy, dark, sad, funk. a bunch of things have just gone awry and my birthday is coming up (which is when i do my annual plan and get all reflective)...and well, this year has been kind of whack. the result of this funk is that i've been reclusive and lonely -- and angsty. like a kid i want things to be different, but i'm not doing things differently.

I am officially declaring war on my funk. And so, in the words of Jay Z, "I got my mojo back, baby, oh behave."

30 days... 

i've decided to do a 30-day food challenge. i like challenges, and i've been eating less ideally than i would like. the challenge is pretty simple -- in fact the point is simplicity. I can only eat basic ingredient foods. This means if it is chicken - then it should just be chicken - it can have spices and oil etc, but NO processing. No xantham, no preservatives, no things I don't recognize as whole foods. For basic foods like salads and meats, I think this will be pretty easy. But for things like grains or pasta - simplicity is probably going to cut most of them out. I'm excited for it. The challenge begins tomorrow and ends 30-days later -- on my birthday, Sept 19th.
