Today I started a 21 day cleanse/detox program. Normally I don't go for stuff like this but decided to give it a try for several reasons. First, you don't eat fake food and shakes--you eat real food that you cook and prepare yourself. Second, many of the reviews I read said it taught them how to shop and cook whole, clean foods. I need help with that. Third, I am quite certain that if I don't shake things up now, I will end up in this exact same place next year, looking at my 37th (!!!) birthday looming and wondering what happened to my good intentions.
For breakfast, I had a big bowl of oatmeal. I was supposed to have yogurt and blueberries with it but had not hit the grocery store yet so I just stuck with the oatmeal. Not hungry, even 4 hours later.
Have not had soda or tea. Just drinking water. No headache.
I am cooking a batch of chicken right now because I need some for my salad at lunch. I plan to eat mostly the same meals each day for this first week. Too much flexibility makes me have a hard time.
I hit the grocery store and spent $95 on food. That kind of hurts but I'm guessing that if I really examine my credit card bill (which I don't because I am feeling stressed about money right now) I would find that I probably spend twice that each week on eating out!
Send encouraging thoughts my way please!
