blue pill pharmacy 9:00am – I am all over this.A� I’ve had my fruit salad and I’m enjoying a nice cup of Rooibos tea while the boyfriend sleeps in.

11:00am – Going to try the Power Align yoga class today, feeling hydrated and good to go.

11:12am – Shit, running late for class and I really need to pee.A� Just made the class in time.A� Going to have to hold it until the end of class.A� Thank god this class is usually easy going.

11:15am -Yay, it’s the new teacher from yesterday.A� I really enjoyed the class yesterday.A� This should be lots of fun.A� Still need to pee.

11:30am – No please…no more cobra, my bladder can’t take the pressure.A� I really should have chosen the Power Basics, I would have had time to get to the bathroom.A� This is agony.A� Bollocks to all this water and fruit fast.

11:40 – OMG this is horrible.A� I just don’t have the energy for this.A� We’re only a quarter of the way through the class and I want to be in savasna!A� I don’t think I can wait another thiry-five minutes……wait a minute!A� We’re going to be doing arm balances?

11:50amA�A� Can you die from a bladder explosion?A� I only have one other option and that’s an Upward Dog instead of Cobra but my neck won’t take it.A� Will anyone notice if I duck out of the class to go to the bathroom?A� Should have picked a space at the back of class.

12:00pm – WTFWIT?!A� I think I’m going to die.A� If I have to do another Crescent Lunge I’m going to vomit.A� I get head spins every time I put my head into Downward Dog.A� Seriously…….Kill me now!

12:10pm – FINALLY! Savasna! A� I can’t rest, my brain is just thinking about going to the bathroom.A� I am never going through this again.A� I swear I will be on time for class from here on in.

12:15pm – Bathroom… relief!

12:30pm – Fruit smoothie: Banana, coconut water, frozen berries, ice cubes and some water.A� Would be better with a nice dollop of yoghurt in there but this will have to do.

13:30pm – Pumpkin soup.A� It’s ok, but I would kill for a bread roll to go with it.

14:30pm – Cup of Rooibos tea and a handful of grapes.A� Boyfriend is having one of the muffins that I baked yesterday.A� I wonder if being on a fruit fast is a legitimate excuse for murder?

15:30pm – ok, need to keep my brain busy.A� Time for some meditation.

15:50pm – I’m hungry.

16:00pm – Time for another smoothie: Banana, coconut water, frozen berries, ice cubes and some water. Boyfriend has one too and makes the promise that he’s going to complete the rest of the fruit fast with me.A� After he’s done his 20km run tomorrow. How sweet, now he can understand the torment and suffering I am in.

16:30pm – popped out to the shops to get some more supplies for the next couple of days.A� I am clearly not as prepared as I thought.A� Halfway around the supermarket I see the celery on sale.A� Damn that looks good.A� I then realised walking home that celery is NOT a fruit.

17:00pm – time to start cooking dinner.A� I figure that this will keep me occupied until it’s ready to eat.A� Pumpkin has been cut into pieces and it is in the oven roasting.A� I’ve used a Chai spice mix in place of the sugar that I usually use.A� Fingers crossed, because I will be so pissed off if it doesn’t taste good.

18:00pm – the apartment smells so good.A� The ratatouille is on the stove and it’s starting to thicken up.A� Still got another hour to go, pumpkin seems to be doing well too.

18:30pm – time to feed the dog.A� Hmmm ingredients say meat and meat by-products.A� Very un-fruit fast but god I am so hungry!A� More grapes.

19:00pm – time for dinner YAY!!A� I have a small bowl of ratatouille and three pieces of roasted pumpkin.A� The chai spices are really good.A� The boyfriend has the same as me plus the left over braised chicken and lentil casserole from last night.A� I try not to look at his plate.

19:30pm – time to chill with the newspaper and a cup of liquorice tea.A� Life is good.

20:00pm – time to walk the dog.A� Boyfriend offers to walk the dog and it is pouring with rain outside.A� There’s a trade-off though.A� I have to prepare him a peanut and jelly sandwich for his training run tomorrow.A� Arrrggghhhh!

20:30pm – dog walked and sandwich wrapped and ready.A� I didn’t even lick my fingers.A� Still feeling a bit peckish so I finish off the night with five Majdhool dates.

22:00pm – bed. Thank god that’s over.

"I'm just a thumbprint on the side of a skyscraper of the world." Miles, Sideways (2004). My psych said that creative expression might help with my depression. I've tried writing about yoga but the fact that I can't touch my toes makes me feel like a fraud. Given that everything I plant dies it seems pointless writing about my gardening attempts. So here are the rantings of a self confessed over-achiever who has found herself disillusioned with the establishment and diagnosed with depression. Happy Days.
