today is day three of my cleanse! lots of grilled chicken breast (or halibut), green veggies, the occasional piece of fruit and gallons of water and tea. i plan to keep it up for two weeks minimum. i also cut out diet coke (that's the real toughie) and quit smoking weed completely (though i wasn't doing as much of that anyways lately). its a trifecta of vices being dealt with in tandem.. which is how i tend to do things, typically taurean - all or nothing. it works for me. and i owe it to myself to do this. when i was doing ECT i totally let myself indulge with utter abandon, which was fair enough. but now that i'm on the other side of it, and have been given something of a second start, i want to treat my body as well as i possibly can. doing otherwise would feel like i wasn't taking advantage of what has been gifted to me.

i'm going to be looking for work in the coming weeks, which is nerve wracking as heck.

i would love to be able to jump back into my field of choice and immediately work towards my career goals (RAHT) but all the voices of reason around me favour an easier route.. aka a starter job. something with less responsibility and something catering to someone with a huge gap on her resume. i'm pretty torn. part of me thinks i should jump back in with enthusiasm and apply to am emerg vet clinic because nothing ventured nothing gained. the other part hesitates and dwells on the bad days and wanst to be as easy on myself as possible.

I'm glad that works for you and you are following what works for you ;)

My suggestion re: work = listen to the powers that be and enjoy an entry level position for a while.
Could you just be a receptionist/file clerk at an emerg vet clinic for a while? Or get an easy-going position somewhere else but volunteer with an emerg vet clinic?
I find taking on less responsibility at a place where you 'may' want to work helps you figure out whether you like it/them/the experience AND gives you a foot in the door when it comes time to apply (that is how I've gotten all my favourite jobs) :)
