I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)

But I'm going to try the most weird, radical diet, yet. But before you roll your eyes and slump your shoulders, at least know that this diet is approved by one of Mark's very good friends, a PhD in Nutrition. It is supposed to totally detox and cleanse your body (that sounds fun...!) while "melting away fat". (ahem) It's worth a try, though, eh??

It's a total liquid diet, based on lemonade. (Don't laugh - I'm serious!) You drink 8 - 12 glasses of this stuff a day: 2T (?) lemon juice from lemons, 2T(?) pure maple syrup, and 1/10 t. cayenne pepper (I have to double check the recipe). Sounds awful, I know. This is ALL that you consume for the duration. I would like to try it 30 days on, 30 days off, as they recommend it for 10 - 40 days, several times a year. What could it hurt? I'm already terribly unhealthy with a horrible diet! LOL

I plan to begin tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes. ;o)

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
