You can see what a serious and stressful life I have.
After my, dare I say dramatic, blog post yesterday about my detox I didn't feel like I could leave you hanging. I assume most of you are now assuming I spent a good portion of today weeping about my lack of fun food, possibly even turning to drugs....or gluten.
I did not.
Today I felt good. I would almost say normal. Almost.
I had my tired moments, but nothing too rough to push through. I drank a chocolate peppermint protein shake for breakfast, turkey chili for lunch, and a random assortment of things for dinner (all detox approved.)
My only moment of torture was while I was distributing pizza at my neighbor's daughter's birthday party. It was rough to see that pizza and not even be able to eat my the leftovers from my kids. I REALLY wanted a piece of that pizza.
But then Cole kicked me with his skate because I wouldn't untie his shoe instead of Stella's, Stella wanted me to pour her more punch, Aiden wanted to know if he could eat his 10th lollipop, and I had to pee. Sometimes not eating pizza is just not my biggest issue.
This detox is not lasting forever, 28 days is not that long.
It isn't like I hate the food I'm eating, I just can't have a lot of things that I enjoy.
I am back to keeping my eye on the prize. I really want to see if I can get all the toxins out of my body, see how I feel. I'm fascinated by this process and genuinely curious about seeing how I feel.
25 more days? No problem.
Though I must say....there is a serious thunderstorm raging right now and a glass of wine and some chocolate sound AMAZING.
I'm going to leave you with a photo of back when I could have dairy, gluten, AND sugar.
Milk and cinnamon roll.
