I feel really good. Despite not getting many hours of sleep last night, I had lots of energy this morning. I turned down an offer from someone to grab me a coffee AND I turned down free sandwiches that were sitting in our communal kitchen at work. Go me!
Just a short time ago, my thoughts were consumed with when or what I would eat next, trying to talk myself out of eating junk food, wondering how much I could "cheat" and get away with, etc, etc. It's funny: even though I am eating a fairly strict diet during the detox, I'm thinking about food MUCH less. Since I can really only eat foods I've already planned, most of the thinking and decision-making are out of the picture.
While my cravings have definitely decreased, not everyone is having the same success. I may or may not have just received a text from my boyfriend stating "I want choco more than world peace." If he manages to resist, I'll be impressed!
This morning, I had a delicious breakfast consisting of scrambled egg whites with onions and spinach on yeast-free spelt bread with vegan margarine, and a hot water with lemon.
I had packed my lunch up last night, like some kind of very organized grown-up type person:
Leftover fried rice, plain yogurt, sunflower seeds that I didn't end up eating, carrots & hummus, Mary's Crackers, and a banana. I also brought my portable
I thought my post-school pre-dinner snack was a good opportunity to get some veggies in.
The last of the green soup!
For dinner, all I wanted was some (wheat- and yeast-free) toast with almond butter and honey.
So that's what I had. Mmmmmmm.
Now, as some of you may be aware, the detox recommends making a liver flush drink consisting of ginger, olive oil, grapefruit juice, lemon, and garlic once a week. Since this is the end of week 1, I suppose I should have had that today. But I didn't get my act together and I didn't have the time/ingredients required today! Maybe tomorrow?
I think I may go watch Dexter in bed and get to sleep early. Ciao!
