The way people from the Southern US say; "great" or "fantastic". Mostly the male portion of the population. Most frequently used when a positive accomplishment has taken place.
Here's why the boo-yah's are poppin':
I'm clean. Here's the detox down low: I ate a river of brown rice and lentils and a wagonload of fresh, whole, beautiful, colorful fruits and vegetables. No diary, no sugar, no white flour, no preservatives, nothing with legs. Yes nuts. Yes raw almond butter. I know you are thinking she so drank her Pinot Grigio out of a bag in the loo and hid it behind the bidet. Nope. I did let the coffee slide however. I had a cup in the morning and saved probably $412.00 per week by not going to Starbuck's. The caffeine made me nice hopefully it didn't pollute me.
What I learnedIt takes 21 days to break a habit. I no longer need or crave sweets or think it's okay to eat cookie dough and pretend it didn't happen. I have moved ahead of my carb addiction. Boo-yah! This is now crap to me instead of heavenly goo that makes all my problems go away:
I wouldn't have survived this process without this: (not the actual brand I bought, but mine was from Target for $39.00 and worth every cent.)
My version of detox was really a mild one. People go all out and drink only premade green drinks for a number of days like my sister. She was all like "Wow, I can't believe you did this for 21 days." "This is hard."
Reality check: I did chew. Mastication is not over-rated. It wasn't nearly has hard as the hard-core detox programs. Mine was a pre-school version of it. My sister's was a graduate degree from Harvard.
The point: Anyone can and should clean up their diet. It was hard for me since I once wished out loud that scones were good for you. I feel better, more focused, my skin has improved and I don't buy gummy worms to eat in the car on the way home from Kroger anymore. An all around good time AND I'm saving money. Do it.
Pop some boo-yah's. Tell me something good.
Here's Chaka Khan singing that song. (Tell me somethin' good) Look it up on itunes. It'll get you going.
