What I ate:
Breakfast: Mixed Berry and Pomegranate Juice Smoothie
Mid-morning snack: 1/2 apple, handful of almonds, handful of edamame
Lunch: Asparagus soup
Afternoon Snack: Peppermint tea, blueberries, raspberries and a handful of pistachios
Dinner: Asparagus soup, baked sweet potato fries, kale salad with avocado, red onion, tomato and yellow bell pepper
After-dinner: nuts and fruit
Drank: Water with Lemon with meals and throughout the day
None. Instead I took a long nap.
How I felt:
I woke up from my nap where I had a dream that I found the end of the rainbow. But instead of a pot of gold I found french fries at end of the rainbow!!! My dreams are crazy! (I ate the fries in my dream by the way and they were delicious!). I also dreamed of Christmas cookies, Cesear salad (can’t have dairy or bread) and sandwiches. So random.
I think being around all that food last night really messed me up because I’ve been eating the same way today as I have all week but I was “hungry” all day. I just kept thinking about bread and chocolate cake. I’ve decided that I won’t be going to the in-laws for dinner for the next two weeks because I don’t want to put myself in situations where everyone around me is eating food I want to eat. I mean, you don’t take alcoholics to a bar right?
I cannot wait until tomorrow. I have lentils and chick peas soaking (no canned beans for me this week!) and I have my salmon and halibut recipes ready to go. I just can’t decide what to eat tomorrow because I want to eat everything!
I really liked the juice/smoothie for breakfast and I’m going to keep that up this week – especially because I’d like to carry that aspect over to my life post-cleanse.
I learned today that the last day of my cleanse is on Super Bowl Sunday and I’m debating whether to fall off the wagon a day early to indulge. The only thing that’s stopping me is I think I’ll feel pretty ill if I eat a bunch of crap after eating so healthy and I don’t want to undo everything I did. It’s going to be a test of sorts – I hope I’m ready for it! Until then, I can eat beans and fish tomorrow!!!!! Yay!!!!
