It's both wonderful and frustrating to have so many things to want to blog about and not having a good stretch of time to write them all up. We are getting a dog -- our first since we've had kids -- this weekend, so I'm taking a few minutes to get one thing down and I may have to let the others percolate. Just know that I HAVE to HAVE to HAVE to write up my experience at Philadelphia Chutney Co -- So good!
But in the meantime, I've been thinking a lot about how I came to the decision to do my detox, which I continue to follow. The path leads back to two TED Talks presentations I watched over the past months.
The first was this one with Matt Cutts: Try Something New for 30 Days. The big takeaway? If you want something badly enough, you can do anything for 30 Days. It's shorrt -- 3:27. Watch it here:
The other was this video by Dr. Terry Wahls. Longer, but really powerful:
She has MS and went from wheelchair-bound to complete mobility in a very short period of time through diet. Her recommended diet is not one that most people would be willing to try, but when the stakes are high enough and the will strong enough, we can do anything. After watching both videos, what other conclusion could I draw than to do a detox for 30 days?
Which brings me back to the top of the entry in which I bemoan lack of time to share my bloggy wisdom and to put into this site and my gluten-free coaching endeavor the things I've decided to pursue. If I want anything badly enough, I can do anything for 30 days. Now time for me to start my next 30 days. It's going to come to pass whether I rise to the challenge or not.
