I really could have used this shirt for summer…
I can start appreciating my music again.
The menu at Dilla’s Delights — which will be open Mondays through Saturdays and during select Detroit Lions home games — will include about 20 different doughnuts whose names will pay tribute to Dilla, the influential and multi-faceted producer who died from complications from Lupus at age 32.
The Conant Gardens Glaze is a nod to the neighborhood where Dilla was raised; Fantastic Fritters honor “Fantastic,” the album Dilla put out with Detroit hip-hop troupe Slum Village; McNasty Macaroons tip a hat to “McNasty Filth,” a track Dilla did with his side project Jaylib.

I haven’t listened to this in so long.
I only lasted four days on the detox I talked about earlier because I was at work surrounded by this really delicious new Ethiopian coffee and couldn’t help myself. Also, the headaches I had during those four days were really awful and the worst part of the detox. BUT, I have been living a healthier lifestyle since then, so it still played a jump start to the healthier me!
I’ve been going to the gym and making my own food more often, and I’m just more aware of what I’m eating (pointless carbs, sugar).
I do need suggestions for workout routines, though. I am mostly intimidated by machine weights (and free weights) and all of the beefy men that live in that area. Help help help! I really want to do weights that focus on the entire upper body more than anything. I’ll post any helpful information I find!
"Detoxing" instead of detoxing because I’m not sure exactly what detoxing really is and whether I’m for sure doing it right…
I’ve been meaning to do something about my relatively new sugar cravings and my life-long love for carbohydrates, so this detox seemed easy and healthy enough to try out!
The basics of this detox is to eat whole foods and to cut out all sugar, alcohol, processed food, red meat, dairy, and caffeine for three weeks. For the second week, I’ll have to remove chicken, fish, beans, and potatoes, but can add one of these back every day of the third week.
Also, every morning you get to wake up to a 2oz shot glass filled with bentonite clay, apple cider vinegar, and ground flax seed. After that, you are supposed to drink dandelion root tea three times a day.
[It is encouraged to get 30 minutes of sweaty exercise in everyday as well.]
I am also mildly lactose intolerant, so this detox is also removing my cravings for cheese and all of that dairy that I have a hard time limiting.
I’m on my third day, and I have been successful except I haven’t done any exercise because I just started my period and that’s the last thing I want to do on top of everything else that I just started. And fortunately, I have a nice boyfriend who agreed to do this with me even though he could care less about any detox, so he’s an additional support system as well as my coworker. We’ve been really headachey and tired so far, and last night all we could talk about was cinnamon-sugar everything, but I have hope.
I just keep reminding myself that I’ll have beautiful healthy skin (as opposed to my recently scaly/dry skin) and a leaner, more energized body!
And, as of ten minutes ago, I’ve become a member of a gym for the first time since my membership was free because it was my job!
I have to remind myself that this is all worth it and that I’ll be much happier if I just continue with all of this. Let’s think, by the time August is through, I’ll be a lot happier than I am right in this very moment.
