I can't believe it's day 100, you guys! I also can't believe I've made it this far, not only blogging every day, but also doing my best every day to follow my Detox rules.
So, how am I doing?
... Well, I don't like to measure things in numbers. For instance, I have been going to the gym and trying to eat a little better, but I have no idea how much I weigh. I know that some of my clothes fit now that didn't used to fit, and I also know that the sleeves are now tighter in some clothes than they used to be. But I don't know how much my weight has changed.

Similarly, while I have the long-term goal of paying down my debt, I don't have a set dollar amount that I want it to be at. I have paid down more than this time last month. I have not gone into overdraft. I have not transferred money out of my credit cards. And I definitely am having fun with this project.
For me, being frugal (and shopping detox itself) is a fun challenge and definitely it's changing my entire lifestyle. Even when I slide into impulse shopping, it's being fully aware of why I *shouldn't* be buying this, which is for sure a step in the right direction. And definitely doing the no-spend grocery challenge has made me re-think what I have in my kitchen and I am going to continue shopping my shelves before buying groceries for sure.

I am also going to begin on Project 333 sometime soon (when I have the time to go through my clothes!) which will, I hope, bring a similar awareness to my clothing.
Oh, and I just ran out of leave-in spray conditioner. I wonder if there is a way to make your own? The internet says you can. Although I wonder why it needs lemon juice? I will let you guys know how this goes...
