People are divided on the role of blogging and social media, with some completely engaged and supportive of its benefits and others busy mocking it.
I’m fully engaged — and here is a great example of why.
When I got home today I received an email from the founder of Joulebody. In the email, which I assume was sent to all current participants, she explained how she was notified that @Joulebody was mentioned in a tweet. The tweet linked to a blog entry. The blog entry discussed the anticipation of Day One. The Day One entry included photos of drinks and meals. The email was in response to the photos that showed a potential mix-up with the labels — the “green” drink was meant to be enjoyed at 3pm while the “brown” drink was breakfast.
I thought, “Ha! That was me!” Now, I doubt drinking the veggie mixes at opposite times would have completely ruined my experience, but I was glad that my blog entry was able to clarify the process.
This B&Gs is an example of why I love social media and blogging. It spreads the word… whatever the word may be!
Now with regards to the cleanse, I’m feeling good so far. Yesterday (day one) afternoon was tough. I was pretty cranky for a while and told one of my colleagues to STFU when they were trying to help me. Buuuuut we’re all good now!
I ended up changing my plans after work to come straight home and eat dinner. I wasn’t planning on eating dinner on the cleanse — dinner is not provided in the option I am doing; you cook it yourself — but the suggested Salmon and Spinach dinner sounded soooooo good at about 3 o’clock that I knew it was happening.
And let me tell you B&Gs, it was delicious! That and the 5pm lemonade — which tasted just like the lemonade diet drink, very refreshing and yummy — gave me enough energy to stay up late working and spend even more time dancing around the apartment singing to my cat.
I also wolfed down my 8pm brownie.
My half-eaten, after-dinner treat.
I wasn’t a huge fan of this. But keep in mind that I am not a fan of chocolate to begin with. Also note that I live with two Betty Crocker proteges and therefore if I’m gonna eat a brownie, I want the homemade, cocoa-packed, fudge-topped kind that I am conditioned to expect to see sitting on the counter. Actually, they are on the counter at the moment.
Sooo, take my opinion lightly, but I am not a fan of the brownie.
Today so far I drank my morning (“brown”) drink and had my “slaw” lunch. The slaw was very yummy. Although, I gotta be honest, I am already looking forward to the lemonade drink and my salmon and spinach dinner this evening. Salmon happens to be one of my favorite foods EVER.
With the exception of my allergies, I am feeling good. I’m a big fan so far!
Alright, that’s all folks…. till the next bottle of veggie goodness!
