A great day to start because I feel like crap. So much in fact that I called in to work today. I have a headache but the real reason I called in was because I really just couldn't roll out of bed. Oh well, thats what sick time is for right? I've decided to take 2-1 ounce shots of Monavie a day. One in the morning and one at night. I forgot to put the bottle in the fridge last night so it was room temp when I took it although I did put it in one of the chilled shot glasses I keep in the freezer (party at brandy's house!). I shook it like it says on the bottle and I can see why its neccesary. The liquid is alot thicker than I thought it would be....almost smoothie consistency....not like juice. It looks almost like a fruit puree. The smell isn't bad. The taste is probably acquired. Its definetly fruity but is really very tart. Not a drink i'd drink for pleasure but people's taste vary. I personally can't stand the taste of beer and yet others seem to love it. Could be the same thing here. So I'm one shot down and I still feel like the same ol brandy....nothing miraculous has happened yet but I really didn't expect it too. From what I've read it takes most 3 days to a week to start to feel the effects. Oh and my mom's giving it a try too. She has high blood pressure and diabetes and it will be interesting to track it and see if it has any effect on those. Anyways, I'm off to enjoy the rest of my sick day by being a couch potato and watching tv!
