In my previous post I mentioned that the monster woke at 5:30 in the morning. Not pleased! I immediately played out my day and I for saw a tired, grumpy mama running on little sleep, no food and no coffee.
To my surprise, I wasn't very tired. I had a dull headache for most of the day, but not bad enough to take anything.
I was however, hungry. Not starving, but hungry. Hungry for the routine of eating. The smell of food. The ritual of it all.
I got over it. But I think tomorrow will be harder. I can feel it.
So my day consisted of...
Waking up and making Max some breakfast. So badly I wanted to pop some of his waffle in my mouth, but I held back. I made some green tea instead.
About an hour later I cracked up open my first juice. OH DEAR GOD! It was like straight veggies. Where was the sweetness? It was called sweet green for god sakes.
I choked it down. I know it is because I am not used to ingesting that amount of veggie in a sitting, or lets be honest, ever. But man it was intense. But I gotta say, I did feel better right after it. Like my body was going, ahhhhhhhhh.
So after the juice, I ate some almonds and carrots and kept myself busy. I napped which helped time pass and I drank another one. This one was better. Cucumber, pineapple, and ginger. Way easier to get down.
So then the Essential Veggie. Oh damn.
So its about 5:00 now and I really needed some eating action. Like really, the action of eating. I made a baby salad with some chicken. It helped. And oddly enough it tasted amazing. Maybe it was my taste buds appreciating the non juiced meal? I don't know, but it was a damn good salad. I have a feeling real food is going to taste fantastic come Thursday. I have already started concocting a menu.
So out of 6 bottles of juice I drank 4. Not quite the quota, but drinking that much of anything in one day is hard for me. Tomorrow I will do better.
